Apple says iPod touch outsells Sony and Nintendo combined. What?

Looks as if is gunning for a spot in the gaming realm, or rather has already sliced out their piece of the pie. Sony previously attacked Apple during a PSP commercial where “Marcus” told a kid playing games on an iPhone that it was made for “texting your grandmother” and not for “big boy” games. Steve Jobs retaliated earlier today at the company by revealing that both Nintendo and Sony’s portable systems are under the sales of the alone, and that over 1.5 billion “games and entertainment” apps have been downloaded, big boy games or not.

However, the Nintendo DS reportedly sold 132 million units world wide, while Apple is tracked at 120 million iOS units sold according to their July report. Is Apple trying to pull the wool over gamers eyes, or do they really have the numbers to back up their bold claim? We’re looking into it, as a bit of clarification seems to be in order.
