They don't do that sh!t lightly, they have pretty good info that Sony is going to miss the production targets.
They do no have to indipendently verify anything they say, as they are predicting the results, not making any claims to actual knowledge. What serves their customers interests is what ultimately counts. Yes, they take their jobs seriously, but that does not mean they can't error or over calculate. There are no finites.
Does that mean that Sony will beable to launch all the consoles they claim? Likely not, but no one is in any situation at this time to make any "solid" claims on the contrary. I "predict" and I "know" are not the samething.
