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

Well yeah, it was a pretty mediocre game, but I see it more as - if a mediocre third party title can sell decent on Nintendo hardware one would think a GOOD third party multiplat could sell gangbusters. Perhaps that's my Nintendo bias putting a positive spin on it but that's really more how I see it :P

The last sonic I really enjoyed was Sonic - Lost World on the 3ds.
Simply because it kinda reminds me about of galaxy.

I wouldnt mind nintendo getting the IP, and if they made a new game in the Lost World vaine, that would be okay.
I think Sonic should drop the timer + raceing elements, and focus on the level designs that worked in a 3D sonic.
Sonic Lost World wasnt a bad game.

Have you played Mania?

I never really was into the whole Sonic 2D platform racer aspect..... I much rather be playing a Mario game then.
But I got Lost World because it had elements like in Mario Galaxy, and felt that was the "right" way to take sonic into 3D.

But no I havnt played Mania.



They feel pretty badly about those numbers, cause Sonic Mania reviewed and sold alot better.

This is only good if it mean they'll bring us a Sonic Unleashed/Generations doublepack on Switch.

Or better yet, you know, an actual new quality Sonic game.

It almost seems like too much to ask anymore.

Despite the quality of the game, it's another sign that third party games are doing ok on Switch.

Sonic might as well be a Nintendo exclusive tbh.

Or at least make Switch the lead platform. It makes no sense for the best selling version of your game to be as hacked down as Forces on Switch was.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Makes you wonder why the Genesis collection is not on Switch. There must be another reason than Sega just didn't want to



Nothing to see here, move along

If it proves anything it's that people who own a PS4 or Xbox One have better taste when it comes to games which feature a blue hedgehog.

You're talking about Mania? I think it also sold best on Switch. I could be wrong idk

Yeah. I get where you're coming from. It always felt like I had more control over Mario in his 2D games.
