Not gonna find it. Most of the pc gaming market is digital these days and none of the major dd outlets release public sales figures.

I wish they would release sales figures.
It could show the AAA devs that PC is the way to go, forget the consoles.

No, that's not the intent of my research, I am trying to prove that European gamers are more PC-centric and Handheld-centric than US gamers and that Japanese are more Handheld-centric than Americans.

I want to write up about the great social melting pot that are gaming websites, and that how one person can say something is popular and how another can be in minority and disagree.

This is something that happens on GameFAQs or Reddit all of the time. Even on PCH, many people here lean towards specific games because they're regional or cultural. I would be interested in running polls trying to find out how many Europeans or Americans we have, and what games they play.

Far as I know, consoles generally rule everywhere except places like Russia where piracy is rampant.

He's talking about OTHER peoples. Obviously you see your own numbers, he said he wants AAA developers to see other peoples sales so they know there's a strong userbase.
