    Default couldn't muster 400,000 sales between them.

    What's the meaning of the part in bold?

    The publisher's other games, Taiko Drum Master, Ben 10 Alien Force and Super Robot Wars couldn't muster 400,000 sales between them.

    Thanks.

    It means they were unable to gather, achieve, or count that number of sales, even if added together.

    "Muster" means accumulate or gather together.
