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

Hail to the King, baby.

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

How would you explain PS2 doing 50% above without having a single LoD? More people bought because they thought it would have more LoD?

I know I was excited to have PS2 and confused with why there was another system to be launched (I was 15 at the time) for the second part of Soul Reaver (It didn't only ended saying there was a sequel, it also said it would release on PS2).

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.

If they are using the numbers on the books that are released and audited then conflict of interest can't really be used because those numbers can't really be faked the loss and risk is much beyond anything won by a Guinness stamp.

We have to include Switch, in particular now that we have the switchless Switch Lite.

Nintendo is still boss, even though they rebranded their mobile devices multiple times.



Playstation been eating!

Yup, after LoD people bought the PS2 expecting for more, that's why it's the best selling gaming system ever.

Then the PS3 came and no new LoD was released and a lot of people went away, that's why it sold so much less.

Then the PS4 came and Shuhei Yoshida (LoD producer) was in charge and Mark Cerny declared his love for LoD and a lot of people came back, that's why it sold a lot better than the PS3.



Gratulation and thanks for the best Gaming-Years of all time !! :) @ PlayStation
My favorite consoles are PS4 and PS2 :)

We could if Nintendo fanbase in VGC accepted Switch as more of a HH than a console. If not it would count on both comparisons of HW on HH and HC? Because sure if we are talking totals than Switch is accounted for sure (goes about 750M HW sold by Nintendo), but when talking only HH or only HC it can't be doubled.
