Another UK Sales Drop for Generations in Week 3

Another UK Sales Drop for Generations in Week 3

by November 21, 2011

M&S 2012 for Wii Debuts 20th

The numbers continue to not bode well for either released edition of Sonic Generations across Europe.  Official Chart Track UK ranks are out detailing last week’s sales, and the game is barely hanging on to the top 40.

Combined, the XBOX 360 and PS3 releases ranked 37th in week 3, down from 21st in week 2.  Again, the game had to compete with the Halos, Call of Duties, Zeldas, and Marios of the world, as the marketplace gets more crowded for the Holiday shopping rush.

Generations also had to compete with Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games on Wii.  Despite only being on sale two days out of the week, the latter was victorious.  M&S 2012 charted 20th for the week, above Generations‘s week 2 rank.

With the release of Generations on 3DS this week, the numbers should go up.  How much will again depend on how strong existing top sellers remain through the week.  We will let you know next week, and we’ll also afford the unofficial domestic Week 3 estimates once they come in.
