Please spend time analysing this chart in order to devise an argument for proving that your favourite manufacturer / console is the best one ever. Or, let me know how my chart is factually incorrect, presented in a way that distorts the truth and shows intolerable bias .

There's always time for teaming-up facts with fun, Ironhide .

It is odd how the DC didn't do better, Garth. The launch timing wasn't bad, really, but I guess the PlayStaion was a relative behemoth.

... thanks, Sandy - charts really can be fun and drive conversation!

I was kinda surprised by that as well, Taf.
A few other questions spring up from looking at the chart. Was it a mistake for Nintendo to launch the GC and GBA in the same year? Was the Wii / 360 / PS3 era the peak competitive period? And imagine if Sega had built upon the succes of the MD!
Any idea where PS3 sales are up to? Xbox 360 was confirmed to be 84m when MS announced it was discontinued last year, but we've not heard anything since 2013 (over 83m) regarding PS3 sales and it's technically still in production.
I see PS4 finishing 120m - 130m, depending on when PS5 launches, don't see anything topping PS2's 155m+.
Sad to see Sega not even managing 10m for the Dreamcast too.

Yeah, you’re both spot on there I think. Surprising Nintendo took ten years to make any in roads in mobile gaming really after they lost half their market from the DS with the 3DS (which still sold superbly to be fair but still)
