If they used VGC numbers I hope they didn’t copy the 104M PS1 number...

We recently fixed that number. We had to get Trucks to fix it by going into the code for the site. Myself and Machina weren't able to update it.

That’s great.

Hadn’t checked in a while. Maybe I should’ve before posting that.

Nintendo is on it's 5th console in the same time period and it's not even close and add to that that the handheld market is picking up the slack on switch, Nintendo is nowhere near the power they used to be. I'm afraid of even saying this on here cause I feel like I'll be banned.

Yes, a very dangerous thing to post.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Ha. True.

I hope Sony got a ham with that plaque.

Doh! There goes my previous post. Nice to know it's been updated with the correct number.

All that with a single LoD game.
Imagine with a franchise...

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

Sony deserves the success. Solid hardware (For the most part) with games that resonate with it's customer base.

EDIT: According to the editorial of push square, Guiness World record are using VGChartz Data LOL, you all make us proud LMAO 

Ppl should really stop using that tabloid kniwn as pushsquare.

Anyhow, vgc data most likely backed up official Sony numbers, and the latter most likely cant be the source for the data because of a conflict of interest.

I thought this was the case back around 2004 or so?

Yeah, I think they only just created the record category or whatever for it. But this has been the case for quite some time.

PS1+PS2 = 260m
NES+SNES+N64+GC = 166m

PS1+PS2+PS3=347m
NES+SNES+N64+GC+Wii = 268m

Crazy to think of it that way. They have certainly had some impressive libraries, as well.
