Just think about what would the industry would be like without this game
Sega would have gone third party alot earlier
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 exclusives
...Wow

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.

The game is pretty undertracked. I think the real sales are around 15m. 4.34m is to little to make sonic so famous as one of the most famous video game characters worldwide.

Back in September of 1991 i had the choice between Mickey Mouse: Castle of Illusion & Sonic.
I think my decision was correct.Thank you SEGA for being the one who introduced me to the 16bit era.
Oh,and thank you Sonic for being blue,cool and fast. :)
The memories are always what defines a person and its future decisions. :)

Anything that has to do with Sonic being in 3D sucks, the Genesis games were the original and the best.

Perhaps the most important game SEGA ever created, though certainly not the best.
