Has "Sonic" really sold 350M copies? 200M of those "sales" were free downloads for mobile platforms.
If we are including mobile platforms in these figures, then Angry Birds is the "best selling game franchise", with 3 Billion downloads in total.
I'm not trying to cause trouble or start a flame war, I just don't think that it is accurate to say Sonic is 2nd only to Mario in game franchise sales. Without free mobile downloads, Pokemon, COD and GTA have all sold more.
The problem is that we don't have numbers for Sonic's retail games. I think the ballpark for the retail games is like ~70-90 million for Sonic, but we don't have concrete numbers since before the mobile games. Now with Mobile and F2P, revenue seems a bit more important though.
The Sims Numbers
I have found the Sims numbers.( $1.2 Billion)
Can someone add them to the highest grossing franchise list?Timur72299 (talk) 15:55, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
