    I put in what I could find. And yes Neo Geo was $600 at launch! If anyone can add any PSP figures go ahead. The master system is added in with Sega Genesis sales.

    Have to factor in other stuff though. Anyone can sell record breaking numbers. Heck, if I sold my PS3's for $1 each I'd probably finally be able to sell them like hotcakes! (No I don't actually have PS3's, I sold mine at release for their initial BS prices )

    Point is you'd have to factor in how much money you're making/losing per console, how much profit you expect to make from software, how many developers are willing to sign with you, etc. It isn't always as simple as lower the price, more we sell, greater the profit . Otherwise you'd have a quick race to the bottom.

    Those numbers for the PSX and PS2 are astounding, though. 100k...Nintendo barely breaks that mark with combined sales of two systems, and Sony managed to pull it off twice. Then factor in the incredible library of games they [Sony] had in those days--my, my, where have they gone now.

    I couldn't include Wii, reports of how many sold just aren't accurate enough. Some say 3 million, others say 7 million units.

    You didn't pay attention to what I wrote, vi3tmix. I said the systems that persued high end graphics, high end prices often failed. The more economic systems almost always won. The PS1-2 sold well because they had economically affordable products, games, system. The PS1 was more economic than the N64. Human greed seems to rear into each console wars, and has horrible results.

    I beg to differ..

    It shows more of a trend of loss in gaming interest for Nintendo and the power of Sony. First of all, you can't compare PS3/Wii/X360 yet.. because the race has just begun there. But If you look at XBox/GC/PS2, the PS2 was more expensive than the Gamecube (and still is), yet it heavily outsold it. Same goes for the PS1 and N64. Also, the GameBoy has sold 49 million.. but that is over a huge time span of roughly 10 years.. and the DS is just a little more than 2 years old with 37 million copies, but double the price.. and its also selling like hotcakes and will probably easily take over the sales of GB.. and XBox 360 is on pace to sell more than GameCube.. even at its much higher price tag.

    The reason why Gamecube failed is because it had a crapy selection of games. It was mostly all kids games. Kids don't have money we adults do, and we choose the PS2 or XBOX becuase it had games we wanted. But yeah I had a Sega Saturn. Sega wanted to make alot of money and it back fired. My parents bought it because they figured the more expensive the better the systeam.
