Sonic Boom announced (Wii U/3DS)

Recommended Posts

Not eve n a bundle with two mario games or Zelda have been much of a help. This wouldnt either. Plus by doing that your selling the games at a loss because the price only covers the console

 

You mean the bundle with the half assed side scroller isn't going to attract people? Or the bundle with the remake? What a shock.

 

Yes, it's a loss but it helps in the long run of things, and that's what's important.

Umm, I guess I'm too late to the party, but I must say, that this game is much better then SLW, because it's the first game since Sonic Next Gen, which has more than one playable characters, and all of them have their own unique abilities. It also looks like a game with a truly serious plot and it doesn't look like a Mario game. Actually, I don't hate Mario, but mixing Mario and Sonic is a shame. But the most thrilling thing for me is its music, because I've read some rumors which said that no one of Sega composers was going to take part in composing music for this game. I have more to say about this game, but my bad English doesn't allow me to do it :P

That still doesn't help Sonic Boom's financial success

I'm sure Nintendo would work some deal out with SEGA to insure that it would make SEGA a profit, like a 30-70 deal of the cut those sales make. It would be in their best interest for their continued relationship with SEGA if this proved to be a success.

Yeah that deal is already in effect with the 3 exclusives and the possibility to cover publshing on europe again. I doubt that Nintendo would want to dish out more money Sega' s way after the pay out of the deal.

since all the discussion on it is in this thread here were my thoughts in another thread

 

Actualy, there are several pretty obvious reasons:

  1. BRB is still an unknown and untested quanity, if they screw up its better that the fallout is limited to 1 system
  2. Target audience: Nintendo despite its current issues with the wii-u still has a huge appeal to the family and younger demographic, and for better or worse that image is unlikely to change
  3. The amount of sales needed for profit will be much smaller since Nintendo is footing a Decent chunk of the bill for the exclusivity
  4. One system means less of the budget goes into optimizations and trouble shooting for multiple platforms instead of the game
  5. Where would this shoein title come from? all of Segas studios are tied up at the moment, and taking the risk of their tv series tie-in gamins selling less may be worth the benefits;

Could go on a bit further, but I think that makes my point, and again remember at least part of the 20 milion bill has been covered by nintendo due to the exclusivity, if I had to guess somewhere in the 25% range wouldnt surprise me, so they arent making as big a loss as it would have been if they had gone multiplat, had an inferior product, and tanked. It also provides a safe proving ground for BRB as a team

Am listening to it now! Woo! Cheers, Barry.

 

Do you mind if I make a summary, or would you rather people listened to it themselves first?

 

I'd appreciate holding off on a summary. It's a good show well worth a listen! I'd hate to see our efforts reduced to a bulleted list. ;)

You think the bundle with has-been mascot game will? =P
