Sonic Generations most preordered title in series history

Sega has sent out a short but sweet press note that Sonic Generations has become the most pre-ordered game in the series history, which debuted in 1991.

According to the note, "SEGA is proud to announce that Sonic Generations has exceeded all previous pre-order records from the 20 year Sonic catalog. This has made Sonic Generations the most anticipated title in the Sonic the Hedgehog’s iconic history."

Sega, its because of the classic sonic levels and the beautiful detail. Bring us an entire game based on this but actually make original beautiful levels not just another Sonics Greatest Hits remix.

was that because preordering games didn't exist until recently ?

Thanks for making me laugh :D
I never thought of that lol

That is why, yes. I'd imagine the megadrive titles might've drummed up a few more pre-orders if you could do that back in the day.

How old are you, GamersRulz? Preorders have been huge since 1995. Try finding a copy of Civ 2 if you didn't preorder.

There has been over 10 Sonic games released in the "Preorder" times. So no that's not really a good point. Might as well list because you won't believe me
Sonic Rivals
Sonic Rivals 2
Sonic Rush
Sonic Rush Adventure
Sonic 06
Sonic and the Secret Rings
Sonic Mario Olympics (published by Sega so = Sonic game)
Sonic Mario Winter Olympics
Sonic Unleashed
Sonic Colours
Sonic Free Riders
Sonic Kart (all star racing or something)
Sonic Chronicles
Sonic and the Black Knight
Preordering era started a little before 2005. Sonic Generations beat all these games? Wow doesn't say much

JonahFalcon2457d ago

LOL Preordering started in 2005? Are you serious?

Civ 2 was released in 1994 and was impossible to get without preordering.

i really want to get this game but i dont think i cant get enough cash :(

Give me a game based in 2.5d the whole time with none of the silly 3d levels (with the exception of bonus levels) and keep the beauty of Green Hill Zone but with all new zones, kill off everyone but Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Dr Robotnik and I might buy it.

You should play the PSP titles, Sonic Rivals and Sonic Rivals 2. It has exactly everything you want.

I'm suprised at how little those two titles get talked about.

icecoldfire2457d ago (Edited 2457d ago )

it is because it includes classic sonic and other classics. not that crappy excuse of the sonic today. and i mean the 2.5d plane sonic with the bonus stage from sonic the hedgehog 2 which is currently the best sonic to this day
