In the consumer business, although the Group launched multiple titles including “Football Manager 2014” and “Sonic Lost World” in the packaged game software field, sales were low due to the harsh market environment.
Sega have confirmed in their newly published Financial Earnings report that the Wii U and 3DS exclusive title Sonic Lost World has shipped 640,000 copies worldwide as of December 31st. Sega also shipped 680,000 copies of Football Manager 2014 on PC in Europe and NA, while the Japan-only Soccer Tsuku: Let’s Make a Pro Soccer Club managed to ship 200,000 copies on PS3 and Vita.

SEGA’s parent company SEGA Sammy has unveiled their financial results for the last 9 months of 2010 and among the figures is an impressive record of 1,850,000 copies sold for Sonic’s Wii and DS exclusive, Sonic Colours. The title was SEGA’s best-selling of the period and managed to gain that number in less than 2 months on sale. Vanquish (PS3, Xbox 360) was the company’s second highest selling game at 820,000 copies sold and Football Manager 2011 (PC, PSP) ranked third with 690,000 copies sold between the U.S. and Europe. In total, SEGA shifted 13.6 million games around the world in those 3 quarters of the year, 3.6 million less than the previous year.

Last year, SEGA announced that Mario and Sonic will sell four million copies in it’s lifetime. People scoffed.
Well today, it seems, SEGA will have the last laugh. SEGA has announced today that not only has Mario and Sonic reach it’s goal of four million copies sold, it has surpassed it, selling a total of five million copies worldwide. “With adored icons and fun game play, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games has shot to the top of the sales charts and is clearly resonating with the growing audience of casual gamers that want an engaging and accessible gaming experience,” said Simon Jeffery, President and COO, SEGA of America. “The market for entertaining games that everyone can enjoy is growing faster than any other segment in the industry, thanks in part to the explosive popularity of Wii and Nintendo DS,” continued Jeffery. “A key element of our growth strategy at SEGA is to develop and publish games that appeal to this expanding market.”
Mario and Sonic can owe much of it’s success to the UK, where the game has consistently remained in the top five every week since it’s release.
It was reported at the Sega conference that Sonic Advance has sold 1.7 million units worldwide which is 200,000 more than Virtua Fighter 4 on the PS2! Also Sonic Adventure 2 Battle & Super Monkey Ball have sold 1.2 million worldwide, figures for each title weren’t given.
