1.50m WOW
Xen (on 20 February 2011)
1.40m? I call major BS.

@scapegoat, no I think it has more to do with the demographics of PS3 owners. I think that especially at the time this came out we tended to be a bit older (ie grew up during the Master System/Genesis era). I think early on PS3 owners had a lot in common with how we Genesis owners felt back in the day. I think 360 hits a slightly more mainstream audience who couldn't care less about old games.

Very easy platiunum boosted sales like Terminator salvation haha

I suppose this is selling so much better than the 360 version because you can download a lot of the Genesis games through Xbox Live.

It's interesting that the highest selling Sega title on HD consoles is a collection of older games. o.o
italo244 (on 19 December 2010)
Well, here we are. 1.21m! And running to 1.5m!

Ok, i will buy a Xbox and PAY live and buy Sonic 2 and Sonic 3. Missing Sonic 1, Sonic Knuckles e all others greats games like Streets Of Rage trilogy, Golden Axe trilogy and etc only because you want... Man, this classics games deserve to have on a Blu-Ray disc, because all this games is a classics greats games that deserve respect.

And unlocking Phantasy Star is extremely easy as well.

@genjuro
Phantasy Star its here too, its just that you need to unlock it, its one of the secret games on the disc.
italo244 (on 13 April 2010)
0.80m!
Only more 0.20m!
Genjuro (on 10 April 2010)
If they just added the original Phantasy Star :/

Hard to pass up on this collection now, it's only $15 at Amazon!

@xen
Probably because almost all the games in the collection have been available on x-box for a long time and at fairly good prices.

If all you want is the Sonic games you save yourself twenty dollars just downloading them on Live and the xbox live arcade version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and 3 include online multiplayer.
drakesfortune (on 20 February 2010)
I think it'll for sure hit 1 mil. It's a slow but consistent seller. Every time an old Sega fan buys a PS3 they pick the collection up. That won't stop.
italo244 (on 22 January 2010)
Maybe will hit 1m.

So many classic games. This is far better than the CG collection of Genesis games.
Aj_habfan (on 14 October 2009)
I never even knew there was a 3D sonic on genesis... it's not bad. Some games have aged terribly, some are a blast. One thing I never noticed was how similar lots of games are in character design, animations and such. Good value though.
Xen (on 22 June 2009)
Outlegged the X360 version. Good job.
metalgearmatt (on 16 June 2009)
These games always have great legs ;)
Zlejedi (on 29 May 2009)
Sigh in the end it wasn't as much fun as I predicted. Unfortunatly time wasn't nice for most of the titles there.
FootballFan (on 07 May 2009)
good sales!
FilipeAraujo (on 06 May 2009)
Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection its the european version (PAL) and Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection its the US version (NTSC)
Theo (on 02 May 2009)
I think I got this, but mine's called the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection, not the sonic collection. 35 euro seemed like a good price for some classics I used to love. Such as Altered Beast and Golden Axe :D
Zlejedi (on 28 April 2009)
Got this today.
I wonder if i can still finish golden axe like years ago :D
ninjascroll (on 03 April 2009)
Its like the 90s all over again.
I love these games collection discs and this has to be the best even better then Namcos.

Xen (on 26 March 2009)
3 hours of coop today on Golden Axe 1&2, and Streets of Rage. Brilliant collection right there.
HanzoTheRazor (on 15 March 2009)
8/10 Classic!
NicholasCage (on 10 March 2009)
I LOVE THE LEGS OF THIS GAME.

Both 360 and PS3. SEGA needs more support.
Aj_habfan (on 09 March 2009)
Great little collection here, recommended.
mjk45 (on 04 March 2009)
ps3 version #8and the 360 #10
in the latest australian all formats chart not to shabby and its sold out at a lot of places
mjk45 (on 04 March 2009)
the pal versions called sega mega drive ultimate collection
NicholasCage (on 02 March 2009)
Just saw this in my local store for $29.99 and I looked at the back and it said "40 games". I was like DAM that's a steal. Had to look online for reviews if this is good before I get it.

I'll probably wait a while since I just used my money on Killzone 2 and soon MLB The Show 09 :P.
drakesfortune (on 26 February 2009)
This deserves better sales. Getting trophies was a lot of fun on this one.
Xen (on 23 February 2009)
The best thing about this is Phantasy Star. Great JRPG., and you get all of them - plus trophies ;)

Thanks Sega :D
Skeeuk (on 22 February 2009)
super game to have in your collection.

ah shinobi arcade version is brill.

plus altered beast on megadrive is a very good arcade conversion i played the arcade altered beast thats on the disk
KylieDog (on 19 February 2009)
Why is the US name so crap? It isn't even Sonics collection, it is Segas.
Xen (on 18 February 2009)
I just got this. Woo!
richardhutnik (on 11 February 2009)
No online play. Can play offline though around the same machine. The package is definitely worth looking into getting.
TyePhoid_PAL (on 08 February 2009)
nline Coop would be wicked. Streets of Rage 2 on XBLA does as do Golden axe and TMNT. Hopefully each game has trophies.
metalgearmatt (on 06 February 2009)
I wonder if you can remote play these games on PSP?
Skeeuk (on 04 February 2009)
preordered, wonder if they have online co-op?
nordlead (on 06 January 2009)
this is a pretty sweet deal for $30
