    So where are those particular numbers from? Are Nintendo just quoting tracking sources like NPD and Media create?

    I think he meant that the number doesn't mean shipped to retailers, but actually sold to customers.

    Could be that they are only quoting Media Crate as the numbers are so similar, however I really don't have a clue...

    Since when is 19/5.84 = 5???? It's actually 3.25, which is still pretty good.

    2.4million in the US sold. According to NPD 2.1million. ~13% difference. Another example of why NPD is not accurate for judging total install base.

    The 2.37 millions figure is not for US, but for "The Americas" (according to the translated PDF). I guess that includes Canada and Mexico ?

    Calculators are the devil. Should be fairly obvious from rounding that 19/5.84 should be close to 3.
