Well, most of the usual soldiers have answered the call to battle. I expect this skirmish to last several pages.
On topic, it will never not floor me how Nintendo surrendered a near monopoly over the industry. Has there ever been a documentary about that? Though I suppose it could be argued that Playstation helped expand the industry, so perhaps Nintendo's loss isn't as great as it looks in black and white.
I like that the Wii and PS2 were both beasts but in different ways.

Here is a list of sales figures compiled so far, including sources:
- Genesis (North America) - 20 million
- Mega Drive (Japan) - 4.3 million
- Mega Drive (Europe) - 6.9 million
- Mega Drive (Brazil) - 2 million+
- Genesis 3 (North America) - 2 million
- Nomad (North America) - 1 million
- Mega Drive (Other Regions) - 3.5 million
This brings the total sold worldwide to around 39.7 million. The most widely-quoted figure of 29 million total units sold must therefore be inaccurate
