One of the few occasions where the superior product wins

Give me a Mega Drive over any current console any day.

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. The ONLY way to increase that number is if you include the sales of the Nomad "handheld" Genesis systems, and the meager number of CDX systems sold, the ultra-rare SegaCD+Genesis portable unit that cost well over $400 on launch.

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.

Snes??! Plus gaming was more of a niche hobby back then, so one would think sales would naturally be lower.
I love video games : )

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.
I like how the GameFAQs spellcheck shows that the word "Wii" is fine, but the words "Xbox" and "Kinect" show up as typos.

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