    Almost 1 million copies is pretty good for a game with almost zero advertising. I didn’t even know there was a second Sonic All Stars Racing game until like 2 weeks ago.

    • I hope you have the game its an absolute blast I have it on Wii U and PC. It is a heck of an improvement of the first game.

  • This game is so much damn fun. Being totally gorgeous helps a great deal too. Presses all my Sega nostalgia buttons. Great price for its release too, $40.

  • MrRobbyM

    I have a question for owners of this game. I played the PSN demo and compared to the first game, the game feels not as responsive. Like there’s a delay or something. Is this a problem with the demo or the game itself?

    • I never played the first one, so I wouldn’t know.

    • erapago

      I’ve heard that before, and I’m guessing it’s because of Sonic’s new stats. Having near-maximum handling and speed makes him feel a little loose and light. Luckily, you unlock ‘mods’ for characters that change their stats a little (-1 speed, +1 boost).

  • Ooh Bee

    Just downloaded it off PSN for 30 bucks yesterday. Having fun so far. The more Ulala the better.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Probably helps that it’s one of the few games on Wii U currently, add to it that it’s being constantly advertised via Miiverse and it’s one of the only games with a demo on the eShop. Lots of factors working in its favor.

    Plus, it’s a legitimately great game :3

  • Solomon_Kano

    Glad to hear it’s doing so well. Haven’t managed to pick it up yet, but I really enjoyed the demo. Still not sure if I want it for PS3 or Vita but, at that price, I might do both.

  • GuyAlpha

    Game deserves every dollar, imo. Seriously, I haven’t had this much fun with a kart racer since MK64.

  • These sales are well deserved. I love Racing Transformed! I enjoy playing a quick race here and there on my vita. It’s a console experience in my hand.

  • Demeanor

    Question for those who have S&ASR: is Miku in the game? DLC? Future DLC?

    • Mister_Nep

      Miku is not in the game. She isn’t DLC either, and probably won’t be future DLC. If she is it won’t be released in the west.

  • Brion Valkerion

    Now for SEGA to make a stupid decision like make this series iphone only or something. We all know they cant let good stuff happen to them without screwing it up.

  • SilvaStarRippa

    You know what would be cool? An English Yakuza 5 release. I’m very weary of that actually happening since Sega of Japan seems to not give a damn about the rest of the world.

  • raymk

    It’ll reach that easily and maybe even hit 1.5million in a little bit. I just wish the online for this game was better, the match making I mean. It takes like 7 to 8 tries to get into a lobby.

  • thaKingRocka

    I got it on Steam. It is FANTASTIC! It makes me so happy.

    I would like to race as Ryo Hazuki again, but I had some fun with Alex Kidd before taking Vyse. Maybe Ryo will be unlocked soon.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Sega really deserves this number here. The game is great and trully quality title here.
    A bit more marketting surely can bring this game to 1.5-2m sold.^_^

  • Misurino

    It’s all because of Vyse :P

  • Göran Isacson

    I wonder how much this sold if you would include steam copies- perhaps closer to one million, perhaps past one million?

  • Neppygear

    Sega, you want to give us Yakuza 5. You want to.

  • Mister_Nep

    Not sure what their sale expectations was for Transformed, but hopefully it’s doing better than expected. This game deserves high sales. I’ve been playing it bit by bit since release, and I enjoy it every time I play it.
