Title: Evil Information

You may have noticed a particular someone recently touting the supposed superiority of the Sega Genesis. The latest "proof" in this fiasco arrived in the form of sales figures, but did this someone provide sources for these figures? Absolutely not, giving him free reign to write any number that will give the desired effect.

To counter, I will provide sales figures that I have run across recently. If you're interested in obtaining the exact figures for yourself, I encourage you to visit PCVS Console and Wikipedia as starting points for your research.

Commonly Held Sales Totals 2005:
118.69 GB
101.73 PS
81.39 PS2
65.74 GBA
61.78 NES
49.02 SNES
32.93 N64
30.75 Genesis
19.90 XBox
18.02 GC
10.60 DC
9.26 Saturn
8.65 Game Gear
2.84 DS
0.51 PSP

Notice the position of the SNES?
Someone out there is just a few seconds from flaming me and these sales figures. Just remember, I never said they were perfectly valid - just commonly held.

If I was going to tout the superiority of the Genesis, I'd just mention the games rather than sales ;)
