9 million more till it beats Gameboy then it'll be 3 highest selling System ever.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life. The reason I'm chaotic to few 3rd party developers is because I'm protecting Sega and also I lack skill to get really hot girl I really want. also few devs deserve it for making bad game's personal experiences, looking at Ghost Blade HD the shmup or Fighting EX Layer. My standards are too high for genres I play. KOF 13 > Fighting EX layer gameplay.

The US is a really close race.  PS5 is currently in first, but I think after this next holiday it will likely drop to third.  XBox is gaining on PS5 fast, and Switch sales picked up a lot after the release of Smash Bros (which we are about to get to on the chart).  I so think those lines are going to change their order soon.
