    Hi, your enthusiasm for finding the correct numbers is appreciated. It's not that we don't want to correct them or that we are just being jerks who wont listen or dont care, it's just been decided that numbers won't be edited for systems that far back. The way the systems are and the way updating those numbers would work, our server just cant handle it. I dont want to discourage you from submitting reports, just realise that nothing can be done about the sales.

    I see...well what if it was a situation of deleting the old entry and creating a new one from scratch with a ll the same info saved but with the correct numbers? Would it still have the same effect of overloading the server?

    The problem there is, the numbers arent just a static figure, you cant just write in any number you wanted to. The numbers accumulate based off the charts, and when you update an existing entry, it updates all the charts for that game. So if let's say we updated a game for a system that's years old, thats years of charts that have to update, that doesn't just have the potential of crashing our servers but (and its happened before) breaking the system resulting in delayed charts.

    Oh ok I understand a little better.
    I figured the multiple sourced numbers which broke it down by region would have helped prevent that from happening but then..I've never personally seen the server in action before so it could be an unpredictable outcome.

    It's too bad too...Sonic the Hedgehog for Sega Genesis is technically the 7th highest selling Platform game in history and people won't be made aware of that through this site.

    I really like this website a lot and find it incredibly informative, which is why I was so passionate about trying to get the numbers correct for at least this one game.

    If only an IT person could find a way to do it without something weird happening to the software...but maybe it's a lost cause. :'(

    Hi :) About your reports for the Genesis games: It is sadly not possible for us to edit the sales of very old games because the server would have to recalculate everything from back then to today, which would cause a lot of issues.

    I noticed this was done for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles part 1, 2 and 3 as well as Castlevania 1, 2 and 3 all for NES only a few years back. I would just think it would be a good idea to update these numbers in order to keep the authenticity and name of vgchartz.com in good standing. Especially when the rest of the numbers online conflict with the current numbers of those games on said website.

    If it helps I found the numbers regarding Sonic 1 are 15 million in total.

    7.52 million in North America
    0.26 million in Japan
    6.88 million in Europe.
    0.34 million in the rest of the world.

    There I hope that helps break down the numbers much easier so they can be edited properly!

    To reiterate what Marth said, we are not editing the sales of Genesis games, so stop wasting your time with the reports.

    Jesus don't you want have authenticity to your website when every other website contradicts your information?

    Also maybe you should can the fucking attitude Bisa...
