VGChartz has it at 8.82 million, wikipedia has it at 9.26 million.

Machina and myself did do some research on getting updated sales figures for our legacy hardware figures. At the moment we don't have the ability to update the numbers manually on the platforms total page. 

Okay, so do you have a number for the Saturn on hand, or do we know whether the current figure is accurate?



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

Saturn should be at 9.26 million. We found a lot of new hardware figures across the board including platforms we don't have numbers on. I just don't know when we will be able to update the page.

Ah, alrighty, so another week or two until PS5 passes it then, at least in graph time.

 Dreamcast magazine from April 2000 had Japan 5.75M  US 1.8M Europe 1m Other 530K Total 9.08M so over 9 million for sure.

So next week the PS5 passes the Dreamcast at 9.13mil according to Wikipedia.

For anyone curious here are the new figures Machina and myself found while doing some research. Once we can update the Platform Totals page. I don't know what caused it, but while sales for say the DS, Wii, etc are accurate on the VGC Pro page they are a little high on the Platform Totals page.

At current rate of sales (will likely dip for a while in the next months but jump massively at Christmas time) but the Switch is heading for a 100m milestone by Christmas.

LONG LIVE THE KING.

It's a shame that we will probably never know the total amount of ColecoVisions sold.  They officially passed the 2 million units sold mark in 1983.  Despite the North American video game crash, the system remained in production at Coleco until October 1985.  But, exact unit sales for 1984 and 1985 are unknown, although extrapolations have been attempted using the $ sales from Coleco's '84 and '85 Annual Reports.  It's within the realm of possibility that it managed to surpass the 3 million mark.  I've seen 6 million mentioned by a number of people on various forums and articles, but not sure where that figure derives from.  It was a great system for it's time, but released to close to the Crash unfortunately.  I have a unique attachment to it since it was my first video game system and fostered my lifelong passion for video games.

If we get any higher official figures I'll be sure to make note of that. It is possible we missed some numbers for some platforms.
