Ok..and? That still doesn't change that SEGA did something lousy after releasing something that was more demanding
I have no idea what you mean by your statement.
And I'm gonna tell you this now that there is a high chance that it won't be a good one.
And your source for this reasoning is?
As for the sales thing...what are you getting at? A lot of the sales for the games that are there sold well.
Yes, a lot of them sold well. OVER THEIR LIFETIME SALES. Let me try one last time:
Let's get the LIFETIME sales of Sonic 2 on the Genesis. The BEST SELLING game in the main that wasn't a pack-in. It sold 6.03 million units.
Let's put aside the pact the most games get most of their sales in the first quarter to first year of their time on the market. Let's imagine that the people who decided to buy the game over the years it was on the market did so evenly. Which is obviously not reality.
Let's also imagine that 3 years after it came out (the Saturn's launch in the west) it magically stopped selling. Which is also ludicrous because the Mega Drive lived for many many years after that in Latin America and the Sonic series was always a big hit (at least in Brazil).
These assumptions would give us 3 years of sales, thus 12 quarters.
Spread evenly, thos
e 6.03 million units over 12 quarters would equal 502,500k units sold per quarter.
Let me remind you that this is the best-selling game in the main series not the packed in with the system, with the data wrongly distributed as it would decline over time. But I distributed the sales this way to have the numbers be larger than they would otherwise be, just to show how 800k is not too low. It's actually high considering the games involved.
Mobile games had like high downloads as well.
Free downloads are not representative of sales. Just look at Super Mario Run.
And we did have spin offs released last year and before that so I don't know where you're saying that we haven't gotten a Sonic game for a while came from unless you meant the main games.
I mentioned Sonic Forces, Sonic Mania, Sonic Team Racing and Mario & Sonic Tokyo. What other Sonic games were there in the past few years? Again, mobile doesn't count.
But really..why defend this?
I could ask you the same thing.
