Go NBA Jam... pfft, who needs EA when you have Acclaim.
Though I'm hearing good things about this "NBA Live" series which is coming out in '95.

(Thanks for these awesome threads, BTW)

Know what Nintendo needs? A new Mario game. Look how much Super Mario Bros. 3 sold, I'm sure we will get a new Mario side scroller sometime this year!

Look at those increased 3DO sales. That price drop really helped. It's only a matter of time before it's the dominate platform.

Do you honestly think a $500 system will ever sell well? That is alot of money!

I'm kind of disappointed that Mario Paint dropped so fast. But yeah, Sonic 3 definitely has legs and I think everyone underestimated NBA Jam. I think this list just shows how bad the SNES is getting stomped

Impressive how the NES still continues to sell... Its probably cutting into sales of the SNES. When the NES market migrates to the SNES, then Sega will be in some trouble.

Oh, and can we get some SEGA-CD sales up in here?

Don't be, Mario Paint was actually released August 1992. For it to still be on the charts even at that price is very impressive, not even Star Fox lasted this long.

Maybe if Sega CD sales were higher they'd make it into the TOP25:lol .
If a Sega CD title ever sells enough i'll include in the TOP25, but that hasn't happened yet.
Look for a release list of upcoming games that might sell well, so you'll know what to expect.

There needs to be a website where all sorts of game faqs are made so we can easily look up codes.

what an amazing legs Tetris 2 NES has. I think next generation will be Nintendo's last attempt and after that it will go third party.

So it's like phone sex? What do you do on Prodigy?

Didn't SF2T come out around the same time as Special Champion Edition? Or did the Genesis one have longer legs?

But it's not just a game machine, it's a multimedia center! It can play audio cds (with CD+G), photo cds, and video cds! That makes it worth the money.

Yeah only a month apart, but SFII Turbo fell off the TOP25 this month (see Feb).

Ah, Sega's good year up until that Fall (when Nintendo dropped DKC). If Nintendo had allowed MK1 to be as gory as MK2 this wouldn't be an issue.

You 3DO fanboys are the worst, I swear. Although, I will admit that the M3 looks hot. It'll forever change the face of gaming when it finally hits!

NBA Jam was actually the game that got me interested in basketball. Can't believe it's been 12 years...

Is it 95 when SNES overcomes the Genesis? Oh man 16 bit wars were so good.

Talk from the future:
I never knew Genesis outsold SNES for so long, SNES really only won because of Japan. Remind you of anything recent? :D

If we want to talk as if from 2006 in these threads, lets just do it in spoilers, so everyone wins
