SEGA LAMENTS 'WEAK' SALES AS ALIEN: ISOLATION SHIFTS 2.1 MILLION

SEGA has released its full-year financial results for the 12 months ending March 30, 2015, revealing sales of packaged software have risen 41 percent year-on-year.

Despite this, the company is apparently disappointed with its 12.3 million sales, branding them "weak", even though its 1 million units more than were forecasted in February. Both Alien: 

Isolatation, which sold 2.11 million, and the 620,000 combined sales of Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal were cited as examples. The Persona series has now also managed to sell over 6 million units.


Overall, the company earned ¥111 billion ($925.7m) in revenue, up 11 percent year-on-year. ¥44.8 billion of this came from physical sales and ¥44.7 billion from digital. Operating income rose to ¥4 billion ($33.4m), around double the previous year. As a whole SEGA earned ¥355 billion ($2.96b) in revenue, down 6.1 percent year-on-year. A new loss of ¥11.3 billion ($94m) makes up the bottom line, which isn't ideal considering last year's profit of ¥30.7 billion.
SEGA is planning to release 46 new free-to-play mobile and PC games in the next year.
