Huh? You cited one forum and thats it. Kind of hard to quantify what a more rabid fanbase is. The NES has sold more units and was more popular at it's time and rejuvenated the game industry. Those reasons are probably why you think that or see those numbers on whatever medium you are on. I personally grew up with both. NES as a kid and SNES as a tween/teen. SNES is my fave console of all time but the 360 was pretty sweet.
