This is why Sega should become a second party. Their only game that sells is Sonic (be realistic) and once in a while Super Monkey Ball will land a million, all on Nintendo

@ Fededx
I agree there seems to be more sales potential on the Wii for Sonic, but I disagree with basically everything else you said.

Sonic games sell great on the Wii, but not great enough to ignore profits from the HD consoles.

I mean the HD consoles are the bread and butter for the CoD series, but there is still money to be made on the Wii.

Fededx posted 21/03/2010, 04:58
SEGA should consider Nintendo platforms for every Sonic game they make from now on, it's evident Sonic sells much better on Nintendo systems, most of the old-school sega fans play Nintendo nowadays, since the Wii has a lot of Retro value.

I think both the Wii and 360/Ps3 versions have their own strengths and are great in different ways.

The night stages on the 360 version definitely took more than 9 minutes. Hell, the last stage took my friend over an hour and me 56 minutes.

I'm glad I have both versions of the game, since I love playing through the day stages in both!

Lol, It's just an opinion >.> I never pay attention to reviews anyway. (Long post incomming)

Sonic Unleashed Wii

(Pros)
-Metal collecting isn't mandatory
-No RPG type leveling up system
-IMO, has better controls for the Daytime stages
-Not that much abuse of QTE's and they use the same buttons almost everytime (it changes during the final boss)
-No hub worlds (some people like these, but I don't)

(Cons)
-Too much Werehog. At least 3 to sometimes 5 per continent >.>
-Lacks daytime content (I'd rather more levels instead of side mission like in Sonic and the Secret Rings, instead of only a few new levels.) Also, daytime levels are too short.
-Leaves out two continents (Mazuri is just a boss battle so that doesn't count >.>)

Sonic Unleashed 360/PS3

(Pros)
-Has a greater sense of speed and is all around faster.
-Daytime levels are kind of long and there is at least 2 of them per continent
-Control for nighttime stages are better
-Has more daytime content instead of nighttime content (anyone who tells you it takes 10 min or more to pass a nighttime level really suck at this game >.>)
-Has DLC, is worth mentioning because it adds more daytime levels and a nighttime level(but I guess nighttime levels shouldn't matter, still more content :D)

(Cons)
-RPG level up system
-QTE's are kind of used much and some of them could cause you to die if you get it wrong
-Controls just doesn't feel as good for the daytime stages as it does in the Wii version
-Inconsistent framerate

I guess it comes down to personal preference. I just like the PS3/360 version more :3

Still, even if you compare BOTH the PS3 and 360 sales combined, the Wii only comes below at 100,000 at the moment... and will probably past them in 2-3 months time.

@ Egghead how? If anything, it's making it stronger. Anyways, I predict, 1.5 lifetime sales, although that might be slightly over...
And now you are just screaming ignorant and desperate, when you actually decide to compare how the PS3+360 version did to the Wii version. 2 on 1 is pretty stupid. You remind me of the idiots that were comparing GTA sales to MKWii sales (aka multiplatform vs exclusive), and what's even more ironic is that now MKWii has beaten GTAIV combined sales. Still stupid to compare version of 2 consoles, to version on other. And if you decide to combine them into HD category, combine the Wii version with the PS2, and the SD version is ahead.

SO when will we see BIG exclusive Sonic games for Nintendo systems. Black Knight seems like a side show to what they could really do.

I want to see Sonic Adventure 3 on the Wii. Eventhough Unleashed still had alot of the same problems a 3d sonic game has it got alot closer to fixing them. Maybe with the Dimps and Sonic Team combined we could see the true 3d iteration of a Sonic game.

Egghead, if you're going to combine the sales of the PS3 and 360 into a HD version, then you have to combine the Wii with the PS2 into a SD version. Otherwise, you're comparing oranges with apples.
So far, the SD version is significantly ahead of the HD one.
Anyway, all combined, sales are closed to 2 million. Sega must be pleased.
