While speaking about Sonic Lost World being a Wii U/3DS exclusive, Sega says that Sonicís fanbase and audience is on Nintendo platforms. This would explain how Nintendo systems typically receive more games with the blue blur than Xbox/Sony devices. It looks like this trend will continue with Wii U getting more Sonic love than Xbox One/PS4 going forward. Sonic brand manager Aaron Webber had this to say:

"If we trace Sonicís third-party roots all the way back to just after the Dreamcast, we released Sonic Adventure 2: Battle on the GameCube and it did phenomenally well. We think thatís because there was a lot of overlap between the Sonic/Sega and Nintendo crowd at that time, and we just found historically that Sonic performs really, really well on Nintendo platforms. Sonic Colors did great, Sonic and the Black Knight did well and Sonic and Secret Rings did well ó all Nintendo. When we look at the numbers, we thought ó this is clearly where our audience is"

Good for them, realizing what their audience ACTUALLY IS.

This. My childhood is conflicted although we had a SNES and Genesis. Nintendo vs Sega was the golden age of gaming.

To be fair Wii was losing its luster at that point and Wii U wasn't even out.

They probably were pretty intent in making Sonic Generations be an HD experience. That doesn't explain the 3DS version though, but I remember "HD" being their reason.

Much bigger competition now.
Nintendo against Sony, Microsoft, and Apple. Nintendo and Sega teaming up is pretty good for exclusives. But in the end everyone just wants $$$.
I hate games with bad game design
