New. Game Gear (GG)
Global - 10.62
Japan - 1.78

That 10.62 comes from famitsu vol 306 but the cutoff is march 1996. It had Japan at 1.78M and overseas at 8.84 M thats a total of 10.62 millions. To that we have to add whatever Sega sold from the end of march 1996 to April 1997 and whatever Majesco sold when they got a license from sega to manufacture the Game Gear.

this IGN article says on the first line of the seventh paragraph: Yet, the machine did find an audience of approximately 11 million around the world.

Thank you. I'll pass it along. Again, not sure when the page will be updated. Other than 5 platforms we are still updating the figures to (XS, X1, PS5, PS4, and 3DS). The 3DS I do plan to stop tracking outside of Japan at the end of June with how low its figures now are. Only reason I will still keep posting 3DS numbers for Japan is due to Famitsu.
