There was also less competition in the Sega Genesis days, your point is invalid.


Not really. Consoles were being released like once a month back then. The market for home consoles was also many magnitudes smaller. This explains why the Genesis and SNES sold much less than the 360 and PS3.


Well I suppose you're right, but there were two big dogs; Nintendo, and Sega. As opposed to three major competitors.

The Genesis had some pretty tough competition from the likes of Turbografx, 3DO, and Jaguar.

And don't forget NeoGeo.

Sega=God thats why.

Then in that case, for years,"God" doesn't think any of you (outside of Japan) were ever worthy of his works. Why do you think Phantasy Star Collection 1-4 (Saturn), Shining Force 3 chap. 2-3 (Saturn, again only in Japan) Alien Soldier, and hundreds of other games on MegaDrive, Saturn and Dreamcast never left Japan for the rest of the world? Because Sega (in your eyes, "God" >_>) thought you weren't worth the trouble. That's what "God" really thought of you.

From someone who knew throughout the 90's all the 16/32 bit games you were denied from, Sega is nowhere near the heavenly angel you make it out to be.

The genesis sold 35 million consoles. This topic is a lie >_>.


You must be getting numbers from a bad source.


No, that would be you, and the current theoretical maximum number from most sources is 29 million Genesis systems sold world wide.


Actually, according to Wiki, the estimates are about 37 million to almost 42 million. Still, that's a lot less than the 360's current numbers.

Additional note: Wiki does mention something about 29 million Genesis systems sold, but I'm not clear on where they're getting the additional 8-13 million from.


depends...what is the "per capita" stats?

We were not worthy. Those sacred works would be wasted on an unappreciative audience. It says much of the heathenish lands in which we dwell.

Because I can't imagine the American audience truly appreciating games like Segagaga, when at the time all they wanted to play was Fifa and Need for Speed.
