This is not to start a fight, I am just wondering if anyone has any info on how different editions have sold, and where.

In the US Xbox has sold more than PlayStation. And Sega was bigger in Americas compared to Europe, I have understood. Are there similar differences with roleplaying systems?

being from the US nd having seen the gaming scene in several states, yeah it doesn't do so well here. D100 based systems in general kinda fall behind really, it's a D20 country for RPGs.

Can it be the setting plays a role, too? It is quite Eurocentric compared to more freeform fantasy worlds which there are plenty. (And Warhammer can sometimes feel like a dank inside joke, which I don’t think is the best to write things in most cases.)

Agreed. I fight tooth and nail to try and introduce as many gamers as possible to the D100 system. Very few are willing to part ways with their D20, even for a one-shot. Though it is my experience that older gamers are willing to try different systems. The younger crowd seems to be sticking with D&D5e.

If you're still demoing games for people (i'm not, no time) i suggest you play up the setting with newer crowds and brush off the rules set as "just a bit different". people tend to catch wise to the rules fairly easy if there's a decent vet to check with and they're invested in playing the campaign of a cool setting.
