Jobs claims that the iPod Touch has outsold the DS and PSP combined (it didn’t)

Steve Jobs announced today that the iPod Touch alone has outsold both the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP combined.

However this doesn’t stack up to even the quickest of fact checking efforts.

  • Jobs also announced today that Apple has sold 120m iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) since the launch of the original iPhone in 2007.
  • Nintendo announced in July that the DS has sold 132m units LTD.
  • Which makes it pretty pointless to even bother to look up the PSP numbers.

Nice try Jobs but it’s pretty hard to sell BS to people who have 24/7 access to Google on their iPhones.
