Sega Software Sales Anything But Poor
Sega has just revealed details regarding their impressive 2009 fiscal year-end sales results and we’ve got ’em for ya!
It seems that the console developer turned exclusive software publisher, despite a harsh past few years, is doing quite well in the sales department, with big releases across all three major home platforms in addition to strong PSP sales. Sega has made pretty positive waves with the release of fresh, new IPs like Bayonetta last year along with PS3-exclusive titles like Yakuza 3 hitting North American shores, and of course your Sega character mash-up titles which are doing incredibly well.
Here are some of Sega’s major winners in sales for the fiscal year ending March 31st, 2009:
Aliens vs. Predator (PC/PlayStation 3/Xbox 360) – 1.69 million in US and Europe
Bayonetta (PlayStation 3/Xbox 360) – 1.35 million in US, Europe and Japan
Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing (Nintendo Wii/Nintendo DS/PlayStation 3/Xbox 360) – 1.07 million in US and Europe
Phantasy Star Portable 2 (PSP) – 600K in Japan
Yakuza 4 (PlayStation 3) – 560K in Japan
Sega has some pretty strong momentum going into the 2010 fiscal year with no plans to slow down. With rumors of a Sega presence in PlayStation Home coming and Dreamcast titles possibly releasing over the PSN, the publisher’s immediate and potentially long-term future is looking quite bright to say the least.
