They need references.. the stated numbers are supposed to be worldwide and to date. Doesn't differentiate between consoles sold to consumers and consoles sold into the retail channel.

That is not a reliable source, its just an estimate.

NPD and Media Create have much closer numbers.

Strictly speaking, they're all estimates. I wouldn't bet the farm on any of their numbers, but as long as you take it with a grain of salt it's not terrible (they do update their numbers any time they get hard data, so the only difference between this site and those others is that they also try to extrapolate sales).

Actually, the poll is probably more interesting than the sales numbers themselves. Over half pick the Wii, and less than 20% pick the PS3. Although I suppose PS3 fans aren't likely to visit a site just to see how badly their console of choice is getting smoked on sales.

*Shrug* While the numbers are probably raw conjecture, it's not like they are out of line with everything else we've heard. The Wii launched with 600,000 in NA, 400,000 in Japan, and some unspecified number in the UK. ~1,300,000 doesn't sound unreasonable.

Which is probably all that website is doing. Posting reasonable sounding numbers.
