Yeah lol, I really don't know why. I loved it, it was cool taking bits of other characters to make your own custom fighter. Do 3D Sonic games sell well? I can't see why else they still make them.

In all honesty, I wouldn't really care if Sonic got retired. I know he's an iconic mascot, but his games haven't been great for a good long while now. Instead of dragging his name through the mud, they should let him die in peace.

Well so far its sonic generations ( best version)
A watered down port of a game that's going to be lacking the same kind of levels and gameplay as the console versions doesn't qualify as the best version by any means.



Look out irony, I think "port" officially crossed the " Internet's most misused words" line.

Why does ea keep making call of duty? or mario games for nintendo? or halo for microsoft?

When you have a recognizable franchise you hold onto it like grim death quality be damned sometimes

Only the first level is exactly the same.

90 percent of sonic generations 3ds is brand new content

Isn't this exactly what happened with the original PSP? History sure does like repeating itself. Skipping Christmas and waiting for hype to die off in the countries where Christmas actually matters might not be the best move. We've already seen that a spring launch wasn't exactly the best idea for the 3DS. A simultaneous worldwide launch in November would have been ideal.

Aww, shucks. I wish Sony would launch the Vita in North America first (where the PSP is dead), instead of in Japan (where the PSP is still very strong).

Nintendo better own this holiday season.
