These numbers need a drastic change in
all 4 regions.

game sold over 15 million. Someone edit.

Just think about what would the industry
would be like without this game
would have gone third party alot
Resulting in Nintendo having a
monopoly on the industry
Nintendo would
have never partnered with Sony as there
would be reason to make SNES CD to rival
the Sega CD
Thus, Sony would never have
entered the industry
Anyone competition
such as Microsoft with the Xbox would
probably bomb due to Nintendo have all
the third parties locked up+Nintendo

I thought this game had sold nearly 15
millions. Anyways, Genesis Trilogy are
one of the best game of all times!

the numbers are from 1995, the ending of
the mega drive support from sega, but
the game sales up to 1998, was bundled
with genesis/mega drive consoles. 15 m
is right, i think, and 10 milionfor
sonic 2.
