The 10 Worst-Selling Consoles of All Time

Be it a lack of games, poor strategy, or inadequate marketing, a majority of video game consoles are commercial failures. Here are the 10 worst selling consoles of all time in terms of high-profile systems that stood a viable chance. Other lesser-known consoles are sure to have sold worse, but the below represent the notable platforms that never met expectations.


  1. I owned all the Sega flops (I hate admitting my Dreamcast is a flop, so many great games) and the Virtual Boy. It really made me think about how Sega pretty much killed itself though.

  2. Suckers! I never owned any of those! I played a TurboGrafx 16 once though. Makes me glad I was a Nintendo kid and didn’t get trapped in the Sega Vortex of Suck. The Genesis was enough for me, although I did know 2 people who had Sega CD.

  3. Sega Megadrive III, Playstation, Playstation II. I’ve always been too skint to be caught up with it all. I only got my PS2 a year and a bit ago 🙂
