Someone has recently purchased a brand new copy of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Game Gear, which is very unusual, considering that Game was released in 1992.
The latest entry in the collection of comic video game stories is certainly a weird one. However, an analyst personally made sure that the secret to the Sonic the Hedgehog game was declared.
Someone Bought a Brand New Game for the Sega Game Gear
Brand new Sega Game Gear games should no longer be part of the sales reports. However, NPD group analyst Mat Piscatella discovered that someone had recently purchased an unopened copy of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Sega Game Gear.
To put things in perspective, the copy of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 that appeared in sales reports was not a used one. It was not sold through a consignment store but by a legitimate retailer.
How, had it been buried in any back room for the past twenty years? Was it lost under some retail device? Was it a twenty year old preorder? What was the reaction when the person who bought it saw it? I have so many questions. – Mat Piscatella (@MatPiscatella) April 28, 2018
In addition, the Sega Game Gear, introduced in North America in 1991, was discontinued in 1997, meaning the dealer selling the game was 26 years old After its release, it stuck to the brand new copy and ended production of the handheld console 21 years after Sega.
One possible explanation is that the game was sold as part of Toys R Us sale, which included things on store shelves and storage units. Maybe the brand new Sonic the Hedgehog 2 copy sat in a Toys U Us store somewhere in the last two decades?
Piscatella looked through his tweets row as if he would not let go until he found out what really happened, where the game was sold and who bought it. Fortunately, the power of the Internet provided the answer.
Here's who made the brand new copy of & # 39; Sonic The Hedgehog 2 & # 39;
A relative of the mysterious buyer finally reached for Piscatella to end the mystery. Responding to one of the analyst's tweets, a user named MihaelMELLO_K reveals it was his brother-in-law who bought the game. The price was $ 6.99 and was purchased at a store in Wisconsin.
The brand new copy of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 was bought in February and after reviewing the Bay Pricing, presumably to see if it was sold for profit, they instead decided to open the game and play it. They have a Sega Game Gear, but unfortunately they realized it was not working properly.
Perhaps the next weird video game report will involve someone buying a brand new Sega Game Gear. If that ever happens, you might already have an idea who the customer might be.
