Just more proof that PS5 needs to be backwards compatible with every PlayStation before it.
Sony's worst selling home console (PS3) 87.4m
How dare they not consult Era first!? Don’t they know only we have the brains to rule Lylat!? Also congrats. Laughing at that first page. Of course they would use VGChartz. Despite us knowing that the site is bullshit, it’s still a site used by analysts, studios, companies, and is unfortunately a commonly known website now. Sony wouldn’t be able to verify their own numbers to the GWR as it looks suspect as fuck, so they probably just gave their financial data to VGChartz to verify and then gave it to GWR to corroborate.
This has been talked about to death. There’s legitimately reasonable uses for not including all platforms. Just leave Nintendo out of it, since they already have an entire era of gaming before PS even entered the market.First of all, congratulations to Sony. Playstation has been a great part of my life, and I've really enjoyed almost every console generation from Sony.
Now, if you include handhelds it makes Nintendo the leader.
But if you include handhelds, you should include all game devices, and you'd have to make Apple the leader right?
I often wonder how different the gaming landscape would be if Namco had released their Super System, a 16-bit console that was said to be comparable to the SNES.
Quite .. mobile gaming is bigger than everyone else put together
Nintendo has very clear consoles. The handhelds don't count the same reason Vita/PSVR/PSP don't count.
I do think the distinction between a smart phone/pc and a dedicated gaming device/gaming service (like Steam) has some merit, but yes in game sales, it's certainly relevant.
What reason is that? do we have to start separating Nintendo Switch Lite models from the Switch platform? or do we just ignore the Switch because it doesn't need to be connected to the TV? If that is the case, should we remove the Wii U, since you can play that remotely? Can you make this line make sense?
Well by that logic we should leave MS out of it too since Sony had the whole PS1 era before they entered, therefore Sony basically had...no competition in this?
