That's an estimate of total third quarter sales by a different analyst. It is not actual sales, just his guess of how it will end up at the end of that quarter including both retail and digital.
Actual unit sales are important but I think it will be more interesting to see if this causes a surge in subscription numbers and if so, do those people stick around longer than a month.
