Forums - Sales Discussion - Sonic Forces sells more on Switch than any other console combined

Well, according to VGC. It's something!

Congratulations, Sonic. I guess. Many people predicted that this is exactly what would happen because it's a game that fits the Switch well. They were right. What do we learn from this?

1) There is no rivalry between Sonic and Mario anymore. Those fights are long since gone.

2) PS and Xbox fans pretend like he doesn't exist.

How do you think Sega feels with such numbers? Hint: the numbers aren't all that hot. Just a bit under a million all three platforms combined. BUT! It may have legs. And they've gotta go fast.

Isn't Sonic Forces pretty much universally hated and considered a bad game? And that's the type of game that fits the Switch well?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Smart people.



I guess that was to be expected. Nintendo fans have more consideration for old franchises, plus the fact it is a platformer. What are the numbers of the game when combining all platforms? It must've been pretty profitable, even with low sales.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Moral of the story: Nintendo fans never learn and continue to be gullible.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Nah, was only hated by critics. If you look at the user scores they're not bad at all (they range between 6.6 and 7.5), higher than the user scores for actual hated Sonic games like Sonic 06 and Sonic Boom by quite alot. 



Oh dear, how did that many people on Switch get tricked into buying it?

Though the switch version is superior, it only runs at 30fps and the less you see of that game the better.



I enjoyed the game. Made myself an adorable pink bunny with a punk look.

Smart people.

Just watched a gameplay playthrough video to see what the gameplay was like.

Yep... other things Id rather play than Sonic Forces tbh.
