Nintendo and SEGA is a match made in 16-bit heaven

The gaming industry received news that Sonic’s next adventures will be exclusive to Nintendo consoles. Who would have ever thought? It’s a surprising move, but Nintendo should take it one step further: buy SEGA in its entirety. The purchase could benefit both companies, especially Nintendo and its struggling console, the Wii U. (Industry, Nintendo, Sega, Wii U)

Yeah, very smart move, Sega, look how many Wii U's are out, Sonic Word isn't going to sell.

Sonic All-Stars Racing on Wii U outsold all other platforms. Not bad for a platform with a low install base.

the game sold around and million across 5 platforms so I wouldn't brag if I were you and it sold around the same across ps3,wii U and xbox 360

over 200,000 each system the rest are vita and 3ds

still sold more on Wii U, with a much lower install base. Also, its an awesome game if you haven't played it. Better than any previous mario kart. I hope the new mario kart borrows some ideas from it.

Sonic hasn't been good in 15 years, moving it to a different console isn't going to change that.

Pretty much this. I dont think PS/Xbox owners will be missing anything.

I don't know Sonic Generation gave me faith once again that they may be able to do it.

Also those games came out on virtually every system. The sonic nintendo DS games were awesome. If this game is exclusive, I think it stands a much better chance at having more polish put into it.

I'd rather have another great Sonic game than another shooter with more pixels in it. I have PC gaming for that sort of thing.

Sonic Rush and Rush Adventure are great games, no idea what you are talking about. Plus they actually have challenging bosses, Mario games tend to have pretty simplistic ones in comparison.

Sorry but Sonic Colors on Wii and Sonic Generations on PS3 were both amazing.

I'd love to see a real Mario/Sonic crossover.

Mario Kart and Sonic Transformed combined to make an awesome kart racer!

Wow, just wow!!! One of the best decisions Ninty ever made. The best of both worlds in 1... I'm in heaven...... ::)

This partnership between these two is nothing new really, if you go back to the wii you will notice Sonic in smash bros, Olympics and what not its been done before.

Besides its not Sega isn't releasing other games on other platforms. Looking at this fall releases i see a dark cloud looming in the form of GTA5, BF4,COD ghosts and ofcourse the other two next gen platforms releasing.

Hopefully Nintendo can withstand all that, or else we will start seeing more doom and gloom articles surface out of nowhere.

Why does it seem that the butt hurt is coming from one particular brand fanboy?
