Thanks to Aki-at on the forums for sharing the news. Aki is quite intelligent and used to write up articles on financial reports for us. I’ve included what he thinks about the sales after the jump if you are interested in seeing what Aki thinks.
Personally I think Sonic’s appearance in the chart dispel the notion that Sonic is “dead” as people were mentioning with Lost World’s poor sales. To me it is right down to the fact that the title was released on a struggling platform. If it was released multi-platform as it should have been, I am sure even with how poorly made it is the game would have enjoyed significantly higher sales.
Surprise to see Rome II not make the charts, but between its poor reception and the majority of it’s sales coming via digital sales I suppose its not too surprising.
