Curious, Media Create has this game at 7K for 2013 in Japan. Perhaps Famitsu had it much lower?

This game still hasn't outsold the Sonic X GBA video on here, lulz Horrible sales no matter how you look at it. Nintendo made a horrible choice with signing a deal with Nintendo this gen.

Sega shipped 640,000 copies between Wii U and 3DS by 31st December 2013 and increased that by 70,000 copies to 710,000 copies by 31st March 2014.

VG Chartz has 436,000 by 31st December 2013 which leaves around 200,000 copies on shelves WW which is about right.

For some reason I really thought that the Zelda DLC would give the sales a boost, but it doesn't appear to have had any affect.

Hmmm, this might have sold around 0.35-0.50 with digital

VGchartz might have undertracked this big time. As of 2/7, the game has sold 680,000 copies according to Sega Sammy.

Huge disappointment for me. Pretty disappointing sales aswell. Should've never been exclusive to Nintendo systems, especially when the PS4 & XBONE launches were just around the corner.

Looks like Japan couldn't care less about Sonic, that or the game is undertracked.

@Pillow Hopefully the Nintendo themed DLC will help convince people that are on the fence about this game. At the very least, it'll show them that Sega is still supporting the game and fixed some of the issues people had.

That said, I really don't think it's as bad as the reviews make it seem and all of the Miiverse comments I've seen seem to be very positive.

So the Black Friday bounce is great and all, but when it's an increase of 116% from a number as low as 3k, then it just doesn't mean as much. SEGA has got to be really unhappy with these sales. Nintendo as well.

This is ridiculous...
I expected Japan not to care about this game, but the US numbers surprise me because I've actually seen a good amount of advertising for this game...
More than I saw for Pikmin 3 or Lego City...

@Kresnik Exactly. What the hell happened here? Even if the low scores from the press, this game should be selling at a decent pace throughout the holidays. This is not a good sign for Wii U's chances this Christmas.

06 went on to sell a million but at what cost? Pretty sure most of those sales came from bargaing basement prices and Sega is in no position for this to sell at bargain basement prices, not to mention this game got more hyped and was "supposed" to move some WIi Us according to some

I don't see why everyone is upset. Beyond the obvious I mean. This game got some of the worst reviews for a Sonic since 06, and opened higher than 06 in America. And come to think of it, Week 1 in America is higher than either the PS3 or 360 version of the game, both of which sold about a million. Hell, if this game has legs similar to Secret Rings on the Wii, it can easily sell 1.5 million lifetime.

If you can't sell a decent Sonic game exclusive on your console after previous successes what will?

Nintendo apologists like to think Nintendo can still do fine with no one but Nintendo selling on the system but failures like this do nothing to help the system nor Nintendo actually willingness to support it long term.

I really hope Ninty flip at least some of the bill on this, because having thing exclusive to Wii u was clearly a mistake. Cause if Sega just did it for the hell of it, then oh boy.

I cannot get over the poor reception and sales of this game.
It is great! Deserves to be a million seller!

These numbers are tragic. Only 3 possible scenarios from here: port it to 360/PS3 when the agreement permits, no choice but to work on Sonic adventure 3 next or the death of the blue blur. I guess this type of look doesnt work for sonic. I think aside from that that these numbers are difficult to understand.

These numbers don't make sense... It released in NA on the 29th, yet it says that week ending 26th it sold nearly 20 k

@DélioPT Japan absolutely doesn't care about Sonic anymore (like 10 years or so), so that's not a surprise. Even 3DS version (most popular console in Japan right now) bombed hard there. Only Mario & Sonic series selling, lol

Eeewww... I think Sega will rethink their partnership with Nintendo after this. I hope the 3DS version did much better. Of course, it did get mediocre reviews across the board. That did not help.

Eesh, terrible sales. I guess this will be the last Sonic game, no? Or, the last sonic game without Mario in the title.

This game managed to have better 1st week sales in Europe despite the difference in userbase. But at the same time it did worse in Japan - about half i think.
Let`s see how it did in the States.
