Please, for the love of PETE do not quote VG Chartz. I swear they just pull that crap from up there F'ing bum.

Then please direct me to another site that reports on game sales. I'm sure wherever I pull the numbers from, my point will still stand.

Not for Wii or 3DS huh? Well Sega, back to my black-list with you! Sonic doesn't sell very well lately on any plaform but I think Sonic will especially not sell well on 360 and PS3. Probably the most lucrative console for Sonic would be DS/3DS with Wii being second. Whatever Sega. Enjoy your shitty sales >:3

What a surprise. You think Sonic would only sell well on a Nintendo system. How totally out of character.

Its not so much a thought or opinion as it is a fact. A quick glance at vgchartz.com shows that the best selling Sonic game this generation was Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games for the Wii. The next best seller would be its sequel, also on Wii. Now taking a look at Sonic games released on all platforms, Sonic and Sega Allstar racing sold about .78 mil, .46 mil, and .37 mil on Wii, PS3, and 360 repectively. Wii had the highest sales. Sonic Unleashed sold 1.77 mil, .69 mil, and .77 mil on Wii, PS3 and 360 respectively. Again, Wii had more sales. This time, by a long shot.Granted, Sonic The Hedgehog, that terrible game from 06 did break the million mark on 360 and PS3 but that was the last time Sonic broke a million on either console except for the Ultimate Genesis Collection. Taking a quick look at DS, Sonic Rush broke 3 million units in sales and its sequel broke a million and the two Olympic games on DS broke 3 million. Sonic and the Secret Rings, a Wii exclusive, sold 2.41 million, more copies than any Sonic game on 360 or PS3. The 360 exclusive Free Riders sold just under half a million while the Wii prequel sold .80 mil. Whichever way you sloce it, Sonic DOES sell better on Wii and DS as opposed to 360 or PS3. Not opinion, FACT!

1. Nowhere did I mention anything about the Wii versions selling less the the HD entries.
2.VGchartz is an incredibly unreliable source of information.
3.Paragraphs are helpful.
4.Stating "It's not opinion, it's fact" does not (believe it or not) make following rant factual.

I wish I knew of a place, but VG Chartz is all I can find. However, I've found several articles that point to their figures being complete bubkis. I'll say this though, you're not wrong about about Mario & Sonic at the Olimpics, as their sales figures are in the Guinness World records of over 7 million sales on the Wii.

@turtlelink LINK NOW.

Gah, just found out the video was BS.

@bboy, I'm sure they're making it PS3 and XBox exclusive because they released Colors on Wii and DS only.

Then let us weep together.

Classic Sonic has proper coloured eyelids now. I was never bothered about his green eyes but his eyelids always bothered me. Now everything in my life is happy again.

@Sephariel Actually the formats haven't been announced yet, but the logos are there to say the game will contain online functions for 360 and PS3. My guess is they'll be disc releases with online leaderboards, for example.

Pretty sure this is a full retail release, not a downloadable XBLA/PSN game.

I'm certainly interested in this game, but there's something a little depressing about the fact that the main reason anyone's excited about it is the 'return' of Classic Sonic. Like the green eyes and lankier posture was the sole reason why the 'hog has had rather fanbase-dividing outings for the last however many years.

So basically, it's either going to be a great game with the "typical modern Sonic irks" - and this is the Sega fanbase, the game could be handed from the heavens by God himself and they'll find some reason why it sucks (probably that God wasn't part of the original development team) - in which case we'll face another year or so of Sonic 4 scale Internet Backdraft that they've ruined a classic. Or it'll actually be a mediocre game starring Sonic's classic design. In which case lock your doors and hide your children.
