    Do companies who sell their consoles count any systems that are refurbished/replaced as another sell?

    For example, a massive number of PS2s died, did Sony count every one they replaced as an extra one sold?

    If so, how inflated would the sales have gotten?

    Don't think this is a jab at Sony in particular, but I think that 100 million shipped thing is inflated, because every refurb is theoretically shipped. As are replacements.

    Not to mention a lot of people bought a second PS2 when the Slimline came out.

    Thoughts, opinions, flames?

    Sony Gets there number from what they ship out from there factorys to retail So 100 million shipped is most likely possible sold is a diffearnt thing though.

    when PS2 slime came out yes those verisons where counted towards the 100 million shiped PS2s etc but i am not to sure about the broken ones .


    Well off to a 3 hour class i go :(

    They count the sales as seperate I think, or some do.

    Noone does that with the PS2 and the models it has, and pratically the slim one doesn't add anything, just take stuff away.

    The slim is obviously included in the sales, and it's nothing bad with counting it.

    About replaced units, I don't know... Probably included though, why wouldn't they want their amount of sales to rise? :amuse
