Sorry to not answer your question smeghead :D but im just wondering about something MD related. I read a while ago that the UK (or it may have been europe as a whole) was one of the few places where the MD outsold the snes, at least for a certain period of time.
Anyone know how true that is?

very, it came out 2 years before :P as far as I know it did outsell the SNES in the US, and i've read in Europe it wasn't til around 94 when the SNES finally reclaimed nintendo's crown.

I seem to remember it being something like 29million units.

The SNES made up alot of its sales very late in the 16bit generation. I don't think the PS started outselling it until Christmas 1996.

According to lik-sang (http://www.lik-sang.com/list.php?category=159&) it is 23m.

I have no idea how accurate that is though.
