    Yay...so that means people will pirate the game for the PC instead of the Xbox360 and PS3. GG SEGA.

    Next you hear (since they said they might do so) Sonic generations for the Wii U. With extras of course.

    Making you buy it 4 times. :P

    This better not be some sub-par version. If I don't get a PS3 by the end of this year, I'm getting this.

    Ungh. I was very hopeful that they would stick to a minimal cast this time around. I can tolerate Shadow, but only because I loved Sonic Adventure 2: Battle on the gamecube. I am aware that they have created a universe of characters but I do not think they are exceptionally needed in this "reboot" because it will simply give the old-school fans another reason to criticise the game. I think Sonic, Tails and Knuckles should be the focus of the games, which is the direction they were going with for Sonic 4, but then we all know how that game turned out...

    So all I hear is everyone crying about how there's no PC version and now that a PC version is announced, everyone is crying about it.

    It's not like you have to buy it for every console or have to buy it for the PC. Go buy it on the Xbox 360 or PS3 if you want.

    The only thing I hate about this is that Silver is in it. I really hate him as a character.

    No because it's not being published by Valve.

    PC - there is going to be mods you just know it
    3DS - completely different from all versions already

    You can live without mods and "extra content". It's still the core game. It's like saying I need to buy 5 copies of Mortal Kombat from a bunch of different places because only certain stores sell certain copies with certain finishers on them. Just buy one damn copy.

    Also, I really doubt Sonic Generations will grow a mass amount of mods. It ain't Fallout.

    Agreed, for the most part. The only real exception is when one version is radically different from the others, then multiple purchases are justified.

    Not sure if I'm going to get the 360 version (Better graphics, extra content), or the 3DS version (Supposed online play, portable). Either way, the game looks great, and I'm excited for it. Probably gonna get it around Christmas time though.

    Great?

    Honestly, I don't know how Sonic the Hedgehog can still have a fanbase. How many terrible games does Sega have to release (with very few exceptions) before people just stop buying it already?

    After Sonic Colours, people seem to be more hopeful. I played Generations a bit, seems good enough.

    It's not a bad game. Everything released until now about the game says otherwise.

    Alright, so Colors is one of those exceptions. Still, there was Sonic Unleashed, Sonic 2006, the Wii Games (Arabian Nights + Black Knight, i think they are called), Sonic Riders, etc. beforehand.

    Any other franchise not riding on the curtails of nostalgia (that would be my guess as to why people keep buying it) would have bought it after just one of those games, let alone all of them.
