I probably would start to laugh at myself if I'd be one of those 2000.

very immature comment.
lots of games on PS3 like Puppeteer have flopped but nothing to really laugh about because Puppeteer or Sonic are good games, just not advertised the right way.

Darkfist1867d ago

but in japan Puppeteer sold 8900 in the first week and thats a new ip.

Thepcz1867d ago

you'd have a collectors item

NinjaRichParty1867d ago

Oh man. Only 2076 copies? Yikes.

Not very good numbers, that's for sure. Are the Japanese gamers usually pro-Sonic? I wonder if the NA numbers are going to fare much better? Especially with the very split reviews on the game.

sonic9891867d ago

japanese people know Sonic very very well he is famous there ( as much as mario )
but maybe its the wii u install base that didnt help the game a lot
as far as i remember it got a very good review from famitsu magazine
i wish this game to succeed because i want more sonic ( as my name suggest )

Sonic is not a good seller in Japan. Still, these are pitiful numbers.

Sonic has not been popular in japan for years.

All you need to do is go to tgs whenever a new sonic game is releasing... sega gives the game zero presence at their booth every year.

But 2000 is just horrible nonetheless...

Terrible sales, but the Sonic and Mario at the Olympics games (which I in no way endorse) do OK in Japan.

Lol and they say wii u games don't sell. I guess is true

princejb1341867d ago (Edited 1867d ago )

But seriously this is bad for sega. They may go bankrupt if their games keep on unselling

hellzsupernova1867d ago

Sega havent made anything that's been a must play for years, I won't miss them. I do thank them for their innovation when they made consoles but that Sega is dead.

KonsoruMasuta1867d ago

This really won't affect them much. These games are coming out of an exclusive deal with Nintendo. That probably means Nintendo has already, most likely, thrown some money their way.

Did you play Bayonetta or Binary Domain, or Yakuza 3 & 4!

Concertoine1867d ago

We buy good games. I was all ready to buy this until it sucked :/. Bought the excellent deus ex port instead, though the price is what's holding people back on that one.
