How far back they will go with the records. Back to the hey day of pac man, atari 2600 maybe. I think that would be great to include all systems.

yea basically...

I like the above poster living in his own world talking about Halo and Gears, games that were just introduced to the gaming world in the last 5-6 years as if thats when games started..

Mario would own...

Even Pokeman is bigger the both Halo and Gears as of know...

They'll need a weekly issue, this industry moves too fast for books.

Sale records don't happen over night. IF they wanna go way back then games that have been out 5-6 years have along way to go. Now acheivment records and stuff like that would have to be updated under the Xbox section. Like some guy wiht nothing better to do, playing video games for a whole year and sh!t like that.

These days games will have will break records in a short-run when they first come out, because they have more of a hype that builds around them, but over time, well who can argue Mario. Everybody and their mama had a copy, I had like 5 copies somehow(don't ask me how I ended up with).

Pokemon kept Nintendo afloat when SONY came on the scene. N64/Gamecube didn't do that much to disturb the onslaught.
I think they have Pokemon 16 million different colors now. Japanese developers sure know how to milk the COW.
