I have verified the source of my release dates. I found them in this book:

The book contains a list of all Konami games and their release date. Several of them are different compared to your list.

@wimpie3. I take it that that book is not available online?

In any case, I compared your list of release dates with that on GenMSX, and we pretty much agree down to the month, which I recently had been adding to GenMSX. There are something like two games where we are one month apart, and then Uranai Sensation where you have it listed as January 1988 and according to my research it is December 1988 as it got rescheduled numerous times.

For Uranai Sensation, the last release date that I found mentioned is from a Konami ad in the 1988-12 issue of MSX Magazine on page 48, where the release date is listed as 12-3, meaning 1988-12-03 in this case.

And that ad also is the one that mentions a 11-26 simultaneous release (MSX and PC88 version) (1988-11-26) for Snatcher.

As I said, my research is based on old Japanese MSX Magazine releases.

I forgot to add that that same ad also mentions the availability of the Konami Game Collection.

For Vol.1 and Vol.2 it lists 11-6 (1988-11-06)
For Vol.3 and Vol.4 it lists 12-15 (1988-12-15), but Vol.3 in the next issue is rescheduled to Jan 1989 which matches its copyright date.

rderooy: Checked couple of games and found three catalogs with print date 1985.4.1 - nothing new/fancy there, just another set of games which are commonly known. More to check when I have time...

Last night I went through all the catalogs which I have for the "carton box" era of Japanese Konami games. There are two main categories, the blue (earlier) and the yellow (later) type. I logged up the release dates from rear cover and these different release dates were found:

1984.10.1 (blue)
1985.2.1 (blue)
1985.3.1 (blue)
1985.4.1 (blue)
1985.6.1 (yellow)
1985.8.1 (yellow)

I am still searching more these catalogs, quite a bunch of games are still "missing" one.

I´ve seen many lists already...
but no one includes an APROX. number of quatities sold/produced by title!!
this information would be great, to know at least, which titles are the most difficult to find becasuse limited production...
or top sellers ,etc..
any clue where to get this info¿???

I don't think Konami ever made this info available to the general public.

But the community more or less know which titles were produced in a very limited number (ie. Frog or Cabbagepagekids, ...) and which one were produced massively (Nemesis, knightmarte, goones...)
