The PS1 and PS2 sold more than every Home Nintendo console combined. The PS3 & PS4 made this unreachable for quite some time.
I mean if you wanted to be technical about it, the combined shipment numbers for all Nintendo home consoles is around ~323 mil.
I mean it probably is, which is why they say "over".
Why do you think so? Because it uses a source which publish fake and manipulated data?
Nintendo is at 752m total (323m console (counting Switch as one) + 429m handheld) across 6 generations.
Don’t know what you mean about being technical. If you’re adding up handhelds, add another 60-70 million to Sony while you’re at it. Still making it “technically “ true and “technically “ unreachable lol.
Of course it is important.
Then Nintendo is above 750 mil. Also I was just responding about your PS1+PS2 > All Nintendo home consoles comment.
To be fair, 25 years are a lot in the tech industry, lol
I know I was being funny...
I consider Sony to be more impressive considering that they had almost no background in video games or consoles, even being an electronic company. That makes it more impressive to me than Facebook.
I mean if we did all know the numbers we could argue that meeting the numbers for All Nintendo consoles combined would be "technically" unreachable, and that would be "technically" true, yes?
It is impressive but Sony had already a know-how in the consumer electronics market. They were starting to cooperate with Nintendo too and that gave Sony some leverage. They had other ventures to cover potential losses. The leap wasn't as big as other businesses.
