S&M at the Olympics going quadruple platinum
Little wishful, Sega. Little wishful.
Masanao Maeda, Sega’s corporate director, expects Mario and Sonic at the Olympics to sell 4 million copies, about half the Wii installed base. Lofty goals, certainly, but the game is also going to DS. Nevertheless, who wants to play this lopsided olympiad featuring one character who’s sorta relevant, and another who’s still stretching out his 15 minutes from the 90s? More than that though, nobody ever buys those sponsored olympic games, like that Tourino crap. This game’s one and only defining feature as far as gameplay and everything else goes – i’m not exagerrating here – is that Mario and Sonic finally share a game. Somehow, somewhere, to somebody, this is revolutionary.
I can practically hear it flying off the shelves already…
