What's Sonics lifetime sales crossplatform now? It crossed a million in early 2013, I'd be surprised if it broke 2 million. MK8 has good enough chance of doing that, considering the last console version sold 35 million. Its arguably the 2nd most popular IP after Pokemon.
Can't find anything concrete relating to sales sales since they're lumping in PlayStation Plus downloads, but that's got it up around 4-4.5m.

The 666% increase of Wii U sales was UK where it was doing particularly poorly, probably equated to a jump to 50-60k sales, if even. It had a massive opening weekend though, second biggest in series history. the problem is that it'll likely dip dramatically in light of so few consoles being out in the wild.

Fingers crossed it'll pick things up though, because the Wii U is miles ahead of anything else out there in terms of games right now

Murdered: Soul Suspect

You're all going to want to buy this. No reviews out yet, and to be honest I don't care what anyone else says, this is a bloody great single player sci fi murder mystery that deserves to be played by everyone. It'll sell about 50 copies most likely, but I'm going to be every bit as vocal about this one as I was about vanquish. Super fun

Day Z:

not really suitable for me to play on my lunch breaks, so i'm installing portal 2 instead. Its got great potential though. The zombies running through walls is fairly annoying. Id give it another few months before anyone thinks of getting it, or even better just wait until its finished!

It's not a full priced title, they're just revamping some of their old lineup for the HD Collection they're doing

That whole selling half made games thing is a bit of a sham.
