They also lie repeatedly about number of units shipped for just about everything. Sony unfortunately has been caught doing the above. So it makes some of these rumors easy to swallow.

The numbers though are from the NPD Group.
Right but the opinions are from Bill Hunt. He's about as honest as a snake oil salesman. Someone else already pointed out that his $200 price difference was poor reporting.

Let's take a look at his claim about Universal going Blue. He said it came from the highest source possible (or something along those lines) then admits that he was unable to talk to anyone at Universal including Ken Gaffeo about the issue.
