Kirk_Johnston Posted August 16, 2022 Share Posted August 16, 2022 (edited) Seriously, the SNES is one of the highest selling consoles of all the ones with threads in here, and it's easily the most popular of all these consoles in modern times--just look at the 5.28 million sales of the SNES Classic Mini vs its nearest-selling competitor, which is the NES Classic Mini at 3.8 million units sold. The Genesis Mini didn't even manage 1 million units in sales (at least not according to Wikipedia's best selling consoles of all time page and the Mini listings there), and any others did even less than that (I would presume)--yet, no one seems to be talking about SNES much at all in places like this. It's even relatively quite under-represented in the SNESdev forums too. That suggests to me that something is quite dormant/dead within the SNES indie/dev community, and I think it could and should be thriving much better than it is, all things being equal and relative. Maybe it would take a proper SDK to finally give the SNES the boost in modern indie/dev popularity it deserves, and I really wish that would just happen already. I honestly hope to God someone is seriously working on this, because I'd really love to see a bunch of brand new SNES games made for the console in modern times in the same way the Genesis is seeing a whole lot of indie/dev scene love right now. SNES deserves the same amount of love too. Edited August 16, 2022 by Kirk_Johnston Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
