stupid myths are made when they are cherry picked.


Indeed, lets put those numbers in context.

Sega Genesis - over 37m worldwide
Sega Saturn - 9.4m worldwide

SNES - 49.1m worldwide
N64 - 32m worldwide

And just for fun
PS2 - 155m worldwide
PS3 - ~77m worldwide


Even more fun:

Atari 2600: 30 million worldwide
Atari 7800: 3.77 million worldwide


the main reason i linked these is becuz the N64 and the Saturn are Not a "3rd console"

therefor..cherry picked statistics

saturn was technically sega's 4th console but is considered their 3rd because their first was not released world wide.

as for the 64 it was nintendo's 3rd non protable console.

I honestly don't think the virtual boy counts as a standard console. It was more of an experiment by Nintendo.

And the Saturn was technically the 4th or 5th console for sega, the first two weren't released outside the asian/australian territory. Outside of that territory, it is the third console and thus, subject to "The Curse".

Shame on me for not reading the links before posting.

These are the third well known consoles by each company though. Admittedly, the Saturn failed because they rushed it and the genesis addons were a mess. The N64 was only a failure compared to it's predecessor. While not winning the generation, it was popular. Same story with the PS3. Atari was buggered after the crash and never really recovered tbh.

Ladies and gentlemen, your 3rd console curse.


The bold parts I added have clearly demonstrated there IS NO SUCH THING AS A THIRD CONSOLE CURSE!!!!

Some of you are pretty weak on statistics.

All of these "cursed" third consoles were profitable enough to warrant a successor. Sure, they might not have sold as well as the predecessors, but did they fail? Absolutely not.

And console sales aren't everything. Software and accessories are where the money is made.
