When I googled it out, Its stated that Sonic sold around 140 million hits, almost close to that of Mario and it beats the hell out of Final Fantasy! I'm pretty sure that Masahiro Sakurai will come up with an F-Zero game and then it'll be a hit and that it won't get a sequel for years........like Kid icarus. Ok... If you check the sources on that Wikipedia article, one of the links cites Videogamer.com, where it says "has sold over 80 million units." No further source is cited by videogamer.com. Article was posted in June 2011. The second source quoted for that 140 million figure is a blog on Sega.com, saying "over 140 million videogames sold or downloaded worldwide across consoles, PC’s, mobile phones and tablets." This source also seems rather dubious, even if it is posted on Sega.com. This blog was posted in May 2014. So apparently Sonic sold 80 million 1991-2011 and another 60 million 2011-2014. I'm a little skeptical. Unless, I dunno, about 55 million of those 2011-2014 sales were tablet/mobile maybe? Another 3 million VC downloads on Wii and 3DS? But Super Mario alone, counting no other Mario subseries, has 262 million sales according to BusinessWire.com, a much more credible source than a blog. Sonic, even if we accept the ludicrous 140 million figure, has barely sold half of what Super Mario has sold. Then there's Mario Kart, Mario Party, Mario Sports, and Mario RPG. So Anakin kneels before Monster Mash and pledges his loyalty to the graveyard smash.
