See if you can guess which 5 formats have sold over one million units in a single (calendar) year since 1995. And for bonus points put them in order.

Closing time is in ten minutes and the prize is being smug.

Nothing as you're wrong. I should say also that all formats are seperate for this, so GBA-Micro is counted independantly of GBA-SP etc.

Since 1995, 1 million in a calendar year?

PSOne
PS2
DS
360
DS Lite

Edit: I reckon GBA-SP is in there somewhere TBH. If I had to drop something it'd probbaly be the DS Lite.

/drum roll

(Highest first)
1) PS2
2) PS1
3) Gameboy Pocket Colour
4) DS Lite
5) PSP

If you included DS-Lite and Phat together then it would be a few thousand off 3rd place.

Shame noone buys games for their PSP eh? ;)

Yep, different ones like, but still yeah. I can only presume it was Pokemon related.

I've been collating data and stuff the last few days which is why I mention it, but the surprise for me was just how far ahead of everyone else PS1 and 2 were/are.

Sorry, I should have said console formats really as the PC must be lightyears ahead of everything, especially Macs ;)

The words "fun" and "game" in the title were very misleading, as were the lack of guidelines as to what exactly constitutes a "format".

You will be hearing from my solicitor regarding this blatant misrepresentation.

Miss Treats

Leading up to Christmas last year (2006), a client of yours - a certain Mr Rutty Boy - bought me a rather charming gift: a poseable Leon figure out of Resident Evil 4, which, incidentally, is one of my favouritest games ever (you can tuckroll out of windows and kick down doors and shit).
My fevered imagination led me to believe that this figurine would be able to defend my girlfriend's bedroom from zombie attacks, however, after leaving Leon in charge of a defence force of 4 (himself and 3 pocket dragons), my girfriend has suffered no less than twenty five (count em) attacks of an undead nature.
In this, frankly, fucked up climate of every fucker suing ever fucker else - regardless of where such trivialities as "blame" lie - I find the following oversight on your clients behalf quite baffling: he never categorically stated to me that there was absolutely every chance of the small plastic figure he bought me failing completely in even attempting to engage a deranged creature of the night in mortal hand to hand combat.
As such, I detach all blame from my rather bizarre assumption, and heap it completely at the feet of your possibly-quite-bemused client.

You shall be hearing from my solicitor.

Hello! Me again. Yeah... um... I'm my solicitor. Look, can we just sort of play along with number 10 - he'll get all uppity if he thinks we didn't go through the motions.
Blah blah blah, claiming damages suffered due to negligent dereliction of stating the bleeding obvious - that a small plastic toy figure would in no way be able to defend any attacks (organised or otherwise) from zombies, devil dogs, hunters, vampires, and spanish villagers (or any other mythical creatures therein). Yadda yadda yadda, my client, a Mr Duderino Stevas, hereby claims damages to the tune of one actual real-life Leon, to be paid in full, and with no cash equivalent, so as to stop those fucking zombies messing with his girl. Blah blah blah, yours sympathetically,

Me.

Anyway, check your coffee, think someone's put something in it. :D

Actually, I think you'll find I wrote them both at the same time.

As I think I've mentioned: I'm not human.
