Wow, some really pathetic numbers there. Could you imagine a store released game failing to shift under 10,000 units these days!

I would love to find a European sales chart to compare games like Sega Rally 2, Shenmue, Virtua Striker and even, Who wants to be a millionaire as I am sure they did much better of there *maybe*.

Absolutely. I find it fascinating that certain games, such as Ooga Booga, sold so poorly. I guess that explains why sealed copies of games like those are so common: it must be the leftover stock from back in the day.

That's def the case for many US titles on the Dreamcast. There is plenty of old New stock lying around.
