I hesitated on buying this game after purchasing the Secret Rings (which was ok), The Black Knight (awful), and playing Unleashed (not so great). I waited until it hit the $20 bin at Walmart. This game now ranks in my top 10 favourite games of all time.

You may have to know that SEGA starts selling its games in EMEAA very expensive. For example Sonic Colors or Sonic & Sega at the Olympic (Winter)Games start with 59,99 Euros. This is about 87 Dollars and very expensive. I got it on Christmas but I hadn't buy it for 59,99 € by myself.

I've just come from beating the DS version and I was immensely satisfied with that game. Think I'll prioritize this one a bit more since I'm really feeling Sonic atm. If it's anywhere near as good as the DS game it is a success in my eyes.

I don't see how you guys are claiming this game isn't selling well. It has already caught up to Sonic and the Black Knight, and Sonic titles usually have great legs. Sonic Unleashed sold over 11 copies worldwide this week across all platforms. The game in total has sold over 3.75 million copies, which is nothing to scoff at. Sonic Colors will easily sell over a million, and it'll do even better if they decide to port it to PS3/360/3DS.

It is no shame for it to not to be able to outsell DK. Unlike both of those franchises, Sonic has had no less then 3 releases a year. These are the first DK or Kirby platformers on consoles in a good while. Meanwhile, Colors was announced far to close to the anouncement of Sonic 4. And despite being a slightly better game, a lot of Sonic platformer goodwill has been burned by Unleashed and the 360/PS3 Sonic games.

Oh God! As long as they sell it till next christmas it should still do a million. I wonder how long it cost to just keep producing games? If it was nothing then companies would just keep making games instead of discontinuing them. Must cost something to just keep them ready to ship? REd steel anyone?
