I saw in sonys report that their console sales were down 37%, but this shows it down only 14%. Is there something I'm missing?

The percent difference will continue to drop over the coming weeks and months. Sales are now down 30-40 percent on a weekly basis. Ie. this past week it sold 231,544 units, while the same week a year ago it sold 349,948 units.

Yes .. I anticipated better sales than this for october .. I change my forecast for the year on PS4 from 16M to 15M.. still think that november + december can be at least 5M.. last year PS4 did almost 7M for both months combined, so now with a 30-ish % down let's say around 5M, I think is reasonable.
