Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games sells 6 million


Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games is a hugely popular third-party Wii and DS title, proven by an announcement today revealing the game has sold in excess of 6 million copies since it launched in October.

SEGA thinks the game will sell even better now that the Olympic games in Vancouver are underway.

"The original Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games™ was a huge success for SEGA" commented Mike Hayes, CEO for SEGA America and SEGA Europe. "Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games is one of the leading third party games for Wii and DS and we were confident the title would have longevity within retail. The start of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games is a perfect time to ensure SEGA is at the forefront of the consumer's mind when it comes to recreating that Olympic Winter Games feeling in living rooms everywhere."

So gamers, if you want SEGA to make another proper Sonic title, you might want to stop buying this game.
