Not every console, like the Xbox 360, is a top seller. A lot of gaming consoles failed miserably. Videogameszone.de lists up ten of the biggest fails.
so selling more than 60+ million is a flop? Ok I can see how they put the PSP Go in there but guess what, the PSPGo is still a PSP..Its still the same type of system that still plays PSP games. an it's still on the market an is still selling...unlike the other unit's in that group. Opinion noted..but i do not agree with it. carry on though that was entertaining.
That's what I thought. Some people just aren't educated enough to run a blog.
But make no mistake, while it was a good system while it was alive, it died way too quickly, therefore it was a flop.
I still think the dreamcast died so fast because it was ahead of its time.
Yeah, it's pretty unfair that they mention the psp go. If they're going to include that, then they might as well add the gameboy micro to the list. Both of those handhelds were pretty much in the same situation. Albeit, they both come from a line of handheld systems that are successful overall. It's just that these particular versions were flops.
I mean define Flop? the dreamcast sold over 10.6 million world Wide I mean the Atari 2600 one of the best systems for it's time sold: 30 million example: In 2009, IGN named the ColecoVision their 12th best video game console out of their list of 25. The ColecoVision was officially discontinued by October 1985.total sales of the ColecoVision are not really known most likely in excess of 2 million units. here is the list of games http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... so let me get this straight a system is a Flop if it does not sale more than ______? How many world wide. I think people's perception what is or is not a Flop is pretty funny. if the system ever makes a profit how could it ever be a FLOP?
Dreamcast was a terrible console. Anyone who invested in it got screwed pretty hard when it died so quickly due in part to a lack of any good games but mostly due to the ugliness of the console itself. I dont see how anyone can even use the blocky mess they called a controller. Sega fanboys need to just give it up and realize how bad that console really was. PS2 didnt kill it, it killed itself,
you know that xbox stole dreamcasts whole controller design right? and it is considered the best controller on the market
I bought a 3DO. You can call that a flop. It had a couple of good games. Need for Speed, Road Rash and Gex. Playstation just killed it.
@Dsnyder your mad dude.. it wasn't a terrible console and it had great games. Fact is it was ahead of it's time and released at a bad timescale also. I mean like @anti said the controller was practically where the xbox controller has came from. It had internet features, games you could save to a playable memory card and even play on the go via a mini-game type thing for some games. as for games it had shenmue, enough said. If anything the dreamcast was too good for it's time.
360 sold less than the PSP add it to the list :)
What about the PS3 or doesn't fantard logic work both ways?
I think he was so excited to type that comment that he forgot to use common sense
I bring up the 360 since the actual number can be cut in half since at least 50% of the 360s out there are replacements. :) Feel better now ;p
No Bad comments about the PS3 here, the mods will have to ban you, sorry.
PS2 sold more than everything sony wins end of story
Not every console, like the Xbox 360, is losing ground fast, and will be in third place by the end of the year, with a year head start on the competition.
Correction, it's 1.5 years head start in EU.
no mention of xbox 1?
in that case add gamecube to the list since it did worse then the xbox...
How is the PSP a flop? It has sold more than Ps3/xbox360/gamecube/xbox and still sells decent numbers in Japan every month. Support wise you might be able to consider it a flop but it still got games like FF:Crisis Core, GoW, MGS:PW, Kingdom Hearts...etc.
the pspgo not the psp.. they are different models/devices.. i see where you're coming from, but the pspgo device itself done pretty badly. The psp sales are mostly made up from the original and 3k models :)
@kenjix. Proof or GTFO @lonix if xbox1 failed there would be no 360 you dumb troll @fr3d0 360 out sells ps3 in America every month.
2nd statement: gamcube failed and nintendo still brought out the wii so that statement fails 3rd satement:seriously?
The ps3 outsells the 360 Worldwide every month.
the x000 psp models are wildly successful the go models flopped
where is the ps3??????????
add xbox and 360 on that flop list. 360 unreliability make it a flop
Thats what i was thinking Xbox360 v1.0 flopped so hard that most likely 50% or less of them are even operational to this day thanks to RROD.
I still have my Dreamcast and Sega Saturn, the Saturn is widely considered a amazing core system. Also the Dreamcast was so far ahead of it's time it's not even funny. I would drop my Sony and Microosft made products in a second if Sega ever got back into the console market. Imagine a Sega console as the only option to play any of the 2K Sports series or killer Apps like Bayonetta, they could truly contend. Anyway, I mostly agree with this list. Though I know some people complain about the PSP being on there, I seriously know a ton of people who bought one, then realized there are no games for it, then sold it. I know I did. The GO was the biggest flop I've ever seen, but I called then before it even launched. $250 for something digital download only..lol
This guy was just bashing Sony
