All New Sonic's only on Wii

Forums - Gaming Discussion - All New Sonic's only on Wii

If Sonic Rush is any indication, Sonic is actually strongest in "others" territories nowadays. So nearly 90K in Feb for Secret Rings might not be so bad. It could work its way to 300 or 400K from there. The game seems to still be popping up in top 5 Wii sales lists for some PAL territories, too, though there's no indication of sales there. Of course it was just a few years ago that many different 3D Sonic games were pulling 2 mil + on multiple systems... Sonic Adventure on DC, Sonic Adventure 2 on GC, Sonic Heroes on PS2... Now 1 million isn't in the bag for any Sonic title... Ouch...

well guess we can chalk up sega as yet another developer moving more resources into the Wii.



currently playing: Skyward Sword, Mario Sunshine, Xenoblade Chronicles X

i think sonic and the secret rings really is selling strong here in europe, it was in last weeks top three on the wii in here in switzerland and at the moment it even looks as if it is sold out, because i couldn't find it in any shop today.



Currently Playing: Skies of Arcadia Legends (GC), Dragon Quest IV (DS)

Well, yes and no. I think like most others they will have a mix, hopefully (for them) hitting the happy medium where the games that fit Wii are developed for Wii (Sonic) and the ones that fit other platforms are developed for them. Since the demise of Sega hardware Sonic has always sold best on Nintendo platforms, so it makes perfect sense for them this way.

Alacrist said: If Sonic and the Secret Rings was the first step in revitalizing a franchise gone astray, it certainly wasn't a very good one. In fact, it turned out to be more like a drunken waddle out of bed before careening down a flight of stairs. Still, it's reassuring to see that Sega is, at the very least, attempting to reestablish their fallen mascot as a character that could convince you to buy his game. Unless, of course, that's still happening...
I wouldn't say that. Fans loves it(saying it's one of the best 3D Sonic games, if not the best). And even with negative reviews, it still got a 72% on Gamerankings, which isn't awful(expecially as some reviews used 5 as the average, not 7). It's definatly aa step in the right dirrection. I thibnk they would be better of to stick with the Act concept and ditch the missions.

sonic for the wii was probably the best 3d sonic out, isnt it? all the others have been complete jank, the wii has at least started progression in the right direction. more exclusive third party support and love for nintendo.



A delayed game is good someday, a bad game is bad forever.

If you have the option put the voice actings on Japanese, they're amazing! I've got the JP version myself and except of the repeating sounds I really love the game. Camera shakes at times when Sonic jumps but the speed, missions really makes the game interesting. Can't say that I regret every penny of buying this game Sonic for WII only is the best move as probably the game sells more on the WII and the other 2 we're just basically called as.... crap... Though it would be nice to see more of Sonic on the DS as well.

sonic on the DS will really revive it i think. they can get back to doing the side scroller thing, but make it 3d as well. it can be a plesant mix. should kick ass.

I actually wasn't too pleased with Secret Rings... It just sorta feels as if I'm there to sorta help sonic rather then control him. I don't feel like I have much control... it's still probably one of the best 3D sonic's, but it wasn't anywhere near perfect.

yea, no one said it was, its just simply better than the others. but like i said, the DS should be amazing.
