No, people did not want to play Sega games on their consoles. No popular Sega arcade game that had great mindshare, marketing, lines, coverage, sold to reflect that popularity when brought to their consoles.
As a matter of fact, ALL of Segas popular arcade games in countries or regions they had big games in, failed to sell at even close to a similar level to reflect their arcade popularity, when brought to consoles. Except TWO games: Virtua Fighter 1 and Virtua Fighter 2, and only in Japan on the Saturn.
But for other companies in most cases, they never had this issue, but Sega had it constantly from 1983-2001.
Reposting because people may not see the Sega exclusive problem here.
