A lot of folks weren't aware Wii U outsold the Dreamcast it seems, wonder why.

Anyway, for me it's the Neo Geo, which Wikipedia says sold 1 million. Awesome system, it was literally a 90s arcade machine stuffed into a console shell.

I own every console on your list, except the Game Gear, so I'll have to go with the Dreamcast unless there's something that sold worse than it? I've had a LOT of consoles, lol.

Some systems that sold worse than Dreamcast include the Atari Jaguar, 3DO, Virtual Boy, Atari 5200, Neo Geo, Turbografx-16, and CD-i.

Wii U was on market a lot longer. As soon as the PS2 launched the Dreamcast pretty much died.

I know, I'm just confused why it seems a lot of folks thought Wii U sold worse.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Personally, it wasn't because I thought the DC sold more. It's that I forgot it existed.

The Wii U's failure is a lot more recent in people's minds than the Dreamcast, which died 20 years ago.

That's what I figured too, but even though it was 20 years back, Dreamcast's failure is legendary as a tragic chapter in gaming history. I guess people forgot just how poorly it sold.

Many hardware companies have come and gone over the years or went third party. Atari, Commodore, Intellivision, Sega, etc. 

It is a shame the Dreamcast sold so poorly. Sega just couldn't turn things after the failure of the Saturn. Plus Shenmue being the most expensive game to develop at the time and it not selling nearly enough.

Wii U and a Vita, I still own both of them.



Wii U. Still hooked up to my TV. No regrets.

After the Neo Geo, next lowest I have is the Turbografx-16, (well, it's my brother's technically, but we share a flat and all our consoles) then Dreamcast.

We're collectors.
