Update: Panasonic never ever answered my e-mail, they just replied they forwarded the e-mail to IT sector, and then, nada (over a year) !

Not many were sold back there, they were VERY expensive!

ST: US$ 675 ($87,800) in today's dollar = US$ 1150
GT: US$ 770 ($99,800) in today's dollar = US$ 1309

Not talking the alternatives they had: PC Engine, SNES, X68000, PC-8801, PC-9801, FM-Towns, etc, etc.

My tR GT is something like 1LKSA_8957, but I'm not completely sure of the last two digits, and not at all sure about the digit before the 8. Here's what it looks like, what's your guess?

Based on the list gathered so far we can quite confidently say that around 47000 tR machines were sold, or manufactured at least. I wonder how big the tR platform is compared to, say, Amiga AGA + 68060 turbo card.

This is how the numbers are distributed over time
