"That's absolutely inaccurate," she said - claiming that Nintendo is shipping at least the same number of units as Sony. The NYT article also quotes "company officials" as stating that a million Wii consoles are being shipped around the globe each month, with the US receiving half of that number - and therefore more than the 100,000 PS3 units per month Sony has claimed to be shipping.
A million units a month? That would be an awful lot of impulse buying, if the figure is accurate. Regardless, to me it seems that Karraker is just trying to save a little bit of grace while Sony waits for the PS3 to pan out.
