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

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.

What makes you think it was hacked down? It's the Switch. It will get the worst version every single time.

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

From what IGN speculates, it might be Nintendo, not Sega, who wants to sell the games individually through their Virtual Console.

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

Or people who play the other two consoles are too narrow minded.

Yeah, I like it

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.

What other games feature blue hedgehogs?

Sonic racing games which are better than most mainline Sonics and super smash bros.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Some downgrades are of course inevitable, but the Switch version of Forces took it too far. It looked worse than Sonic Lost World on Wii U but ran at half the framerate. Switch may be weaker than PS4/Xbone, but it's not that weak.

Switch is the lead platform in sales, so it should be the lead platform in development, it's only logical.

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

So Sonic Forces and Bomberman Switch sold well despite being of very poor quality?

Sonic Mania wasnt poor quality and it probably sold best on switch..... Is there a point your trying to make with nintendo.... or sega/konami? Im gonna guess the former

Sonic Forces is what we’re talking about here though. I’m just wondering - how do poor games sell so well on the Switch? Add 1-2 Switch to the list.

Well, there is no way to compare objectively, since Lost World wasn't released as a multiplatform barring the Steam release which in itself is a port. I kinda feel there is more going on in Forces, though. It certainly plays a lot faster.

To use a multiplat example, Generations looks better than Forces on Switch and we know for a fact that Switch is considerably more powerful than PS3/360. PS4 was clearly the lead platform and the Switch version was clearly cut down from that one fairly haphazardly. 

In light of the sales however, it makes more sense to make Switch the lead platform for future entries; make them the best they can be on that platform, then just bump the res and other settings up for PS4/Xbone.
