Sega has announced that Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics for Wii has sold over two million copies. That’s not a bad figure considering Sonic Generations for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Nintendo 3DS only sold 1.63 million copies on all four platforms. Sadly it wasn’t enough, as Sega’s home division has posted 5.5 billion yen in total losses.
Wow, that is quite a lot..
still makes me confused why there was no wii generations game….
in nintendo power when talking about the 3ds one they said they wanted to keep it HD im thinking why make a 3ds one if you wanted to keep it HD
Any sales are good sales, let’s hope the Wii leaves on a high note :)
That’s not possible now, kind of late.
No, it’s highly possible. Skyward Sword=High Note. Xenoblade Chronicles=will be a high note. Mario Party 9=Will be a high note.
Even Mario and Sonic made a high note!
It’s entirely possible Mr. troll
(i have/will have 3 out of the 4 games u mentioned, skyward sword will last FOREVER, mario and sonic is fun, and i cant wait for mario party 9 :D )
Anyone know how much the Beijing Olympics version sold?
It would be interesting to know how if the older one sold for more.
Yeah, I bet if Sega made Generations for the Wii, it might of sold more.
and yet, rayman origins cant even get half a million…
Well, what do you expect?
It’s been years since the last good Rayman platform game, and to be honest i wasn’t sure if i should buy it, after all, with so many fucking Rabbids is hard to expect something different coming from Ubisoft.
I have neither bought nor played a Rayman game for a simple reason. I hate his character design.
Does it also count the sold Wii-bundles?
I haven’t played sonic since the sega genesis. It just not fun anymore.
dude Go play sonic generations right now. or sonic the hedgehog episode 4. They are both non sega games and are awsome.
I will def give them a try I’m the future. Though I hear generations is kinda…meh.
” I’m the future” typo? lol
Sonic Colors and Generations are fun. Also, try the Rush series.
holy crap!! 3rd parties arent kidding when they say mario games sell like hot cakes!!
They still lost money with 2 million sales? I hope their able to recover from that…
Well…I never expected this game to sell this much…I guess the Demo’s really do work O.o
I would have bought generations if it was released on Wii. That was their big mistake right there!
It’s always good to hear when a games sells well.
Looks like they shoulda teamed up with capcom. I bet a sonic/megaman crossover would sell like hotcakes considerin capcom knows how to convince people to whore out their money. And what better way of doin it than re-releasin megaman in a sonic universe or vice-versa?
Wow, so an olympic game with Mario and Sonic beat out Sonic’s 20th anniversery game. That’s just hilarious.
Probably should have put Sonic Generations in Wii. Ironiclly enough, Nintendo owners eat up Sonic’s games more often than the other 2 systems.
