These are pre-orders for stock, right? Meaning the albums will go to stores and then have to be sold to customers before they become "real" sales? I know it's still an achievement for the group and it means they're doing well, it's just that the articles on here can be confusing. You'll see one article saying a group got X number of pre-orders and then later an article talking about their first-week sales and the amount is much lower. This could be explained better.
