Super Monkey Ball 3 would be perfect for the Rev, and considering their games sell the best on nintendo systems there's no reason it shouldn't heppen.

but I'm afraid it will exhaust sega's brainpower to figure this out, and they won't have any left to actually make the game

Do you happen to have sales info for PS2 and Xbox for the Sonic games and SMB DX?
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Xbox

SONIC MEGA COLLECTION PLUS - 357,973
SONIC HEROES - 266,425
SUPER MONKEY BALL DX - 66,423
SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG  - 65,389

PS2

SONIC MEGA COLLECTION PLUS - 692,781
SONIC HEROES - 613,207
SHADOW THE HEDGEHOG - 184,012
SUPER MONKEY BALL DX - 78,581

I remember those Sonic Mega Collection Plus numbers being significantly lower mere months ago, they must have got a recent boost for some reason, regardless, GC is still on top. Also, since release, Super Monkey Ball DX has been outsold by Super Monkey Ball 2 each month.

The Sonic Mega Collection numbers probably rose because Sega released a whole bunch of copies over the holidays for cheap. When I was working at Wal-Mart last year, we'd keep getting shipments of that game as well as Sonic DX and Heroes to sell for cheap - $18.95 (cdn). That Mega Collection was always a bigger seller than the others. I like the Mega Collection myself.

Anyhoo, my guess is the did the same thing this year and sent a bunch of copies to stores over the holidays for cheap.
That's not my Yoshi!

That's weird.  The game was out for the entire year, but almost 40% of its sales are from December.

Note:  I'm not trying to answer Nosferat2's question; it's just a coincidence.


Not weird at all.  It was 10 dollars at Toys R Us and reduced everywhere else.  I even picked up a couple copies for my friends.


That was the very end of the month, and if that were true RE4 and Giest should have experienced sharp spikes as well. I'll agree that Metroid Prime 2's lower price tag played a role, but I also think it was a good pick up for Gamecube owners who passed on it last christmas (or for parents who were familiar with the name). As you can see, alot of other Nintendo franchises that don't really set the world on fire month to month experience sales spikes in December.

Anyone know what PS2 sales for Resident Evil 4 are?

I think Shadow and the other Sonic games sell well on Cube because it (GameCube) has a large fanbase of kids.  The name is well-known so the games sell even though they're not the best.  Cube fans might have better taste than others but it doesn't mean we're perfect.
That's my opinion, not yours.

Last I checked the end of the month was still part of the month and hmm... I thought 50K in december are the numbers Geist did.  RE4 is available on PS2 now 'expanded' so its december sales probably weren't as high on GCN.  I don't exactly know what you are trying to argue or add - people passed on it last xmas because it was still 50 dollars.  A low price tag did it.

Anyone know what PS2 sales for Resident Evil 4 are?.

I think in Japan it did quite well (as well as possible for RE games or games of that genre over there). However, in North America, it bombed..

I think that it just that all of the sega fanboys went to the cube for games when the dreamcast die.

Considering how long it took them to get this one to market, I'd say we can rule out a Revolution version unless they start work on it today.

Yeah, but I think only a child could think that the Shadow gun game would be cool.  In fact one of my little brother's friends said the new Shadow game was going to be so cool.  I almost instinctively ended his life.

I don't know if this falls into more of your 'joke' posting...  Shadow's look as cool but as a character he sucks.  Give him a gun and it just makes it worse.  If you really are a Sega fan, the idea of a sonic knockoff with a gun should have you wretching your insides out.
I get irritated when other people criticize when they don't even read what they are criticizing.

um well fyi today I have just been posting non serious joke posts cuz I dont feel like being serious today.


But as a Sonic fan I honetly was looking forward to playing Shadow just cuz its more sonic for me, and the gun idea adds to the gameplay I would think. But again I wasnt being serious ecept I do like the concept of the game and still want to get it, but I am in minority I think cuz I liked Heros also and yeah I get flamed for that alot too. But sorry if I offended you I need to find a way to maybe reply with smilies or something I dont knwo give me some suggestions, cuz in real life I always talk like this but people here in my voice I am jokng, stupid internet dont let you do that so i come off as either sarcastic but not easy to tell or flat out rude sometimes.




.... and then tehres the times I say what I mean but pretend I am joking so yeah try and figure me out.




Oh come on I only come here to have fun cuz it lets me forget about all the crap i put up with in real life.

Try rereading your post to see if it could even be funny to someone who doesn't read your mind and try not ending you post with things like "grow the hell up" because you come off as an ass... Just a suggestion
