I wonder how many kids will grow up thinking Sonic is a Nintendo character......

You'd be surprised how many kids don't even know who Sonic the Hedgehog is.

Also, you people have to remember, kids don't care or understand ownership properties. I used to work at GameStop and I'd always get kids asking for Halo on the Wii and Mario on the 360. Kids don't just understand. It's also a different generation. It's no longer about crazy cartoon animals (Sonic, Crash, Spyro, Bubsy, etc) it's about dudes with guns. Sonic isn't going appeal as much in this generation..

But I like Master Chief and Samus blowing up stuff as much as I do painfully trying to play Bubsy or EWJ. Dammit! Why can't these kids be more like me? lol

Depends. Back before other companies got a Mega Man or Castlevania game, did a majority of gamers associate Mega Man or the Belmonts as Nintendo characters?

I wouldn't be able to answer that one because by the time I found MM and Castlevania, they'd already been on multiple systems for a while.

Nintendo should just buy SEGA / Sonic Team.

Sonic Team already proved they can make 3D Sonic great with Generations, if Nintendo took them in, Sonic can get back to the top and have a true iconic rivalry with Mario.

there's a reason why a large number of people were pushing for Mega Man in Brawl once Snake was announced

But then I wouldn't have gotten the sweet PS360 version of Generations, and that makes me sad.

Also, Endgame brings up a solid point on that one.
