It's just been announced and already fans are bitching about it. Sonic's next 3 games being Nintendo exclusives with one of them being another Olympics Games.

And? Is this really something new to us?

Rush, Rivals, Secret Rings, Sonic 2006, Black Knight, Colours, Free Riders. All of these exclusives and what did we do? We bought the consoles, got the games and played them. I myself got a Nintendo Wii for the sole purpose of playing Secret Rings. I also got an Xbox 360 to play Sonic 2006 and the HD version of Unleashed. Yes, it cost me but at least I had the console to buy more games for to justify owning both consoles. It's not like Sega or any other developer/publisher has done this before. MadWorld, NiGHTS, Tales of Symphonia, Star Wars Rogue Leader, Eternal Darkness, Metal Gear Solid, I can go all day. Plus it's only for 3 games so to those who are freaking out over Sonic being a Nintendo-only IP: CALM DOWN.

Also, another Mario & Sonic Olympics. I'd hate to say it but it's tradition now. Play it or ignore it, makes no difference. Kids are still gonna get as a present from their parents.

wonder if for the SonicTeam if it's best to ignore most of the complaints in favor of constructive criticism?

I still don't get why people are so worked up about it.

SEGA doesn't have to make every Sonic game for every console. And after a whole round of non-Nintendo games (Free Riders, Generations, Sonic 4: Episode 2), don't the Nintendo owners need some love too?

Selfish fanboys amuck.

When I was only with sonic, I used to get upset and stressed, and when I went onto other games such as Alicia online, I was more relaxed and happy. And the reason for that is the horrible fanboys and fangirls. I'm still into sonic, but not as much, and I like it that way ^^ if you get depressed about the sonic fans, just get addicted to another game for a bit and you'll be ok. I mean, I used to hate silver with a passion, but ever since I started playing another game I'm fine with him ^^

This childish behavior is why I try to AVOID playing any Sonic games these days. This 'new' Sonic fan base (I know some of these idiots have been around for longer) are just a bunch of ungrateful bastards. Whatever in the hell happened to waiting for the next game and friendly joking about who got furthest on the first day? Now, they bitch, scream, and 'boycott' anything Sega do because of the colour of the character's eyes, the console it's on, or whatever the box it comes in looks like.

I know there are still a LOT of respectable Sonic fans out there, and I'm grateful you guys are still around, but it's nancy-boys like those guys that ruin my faith in almost anything to do with that blue bloody hedgehog these days.

:iconfacepalmplz: Is it a bad thing to consider blaming Adventure 2 for Sonic having the annoying fanbase he does? Everybody I've seen is constantly chewing out Nintendo for Sonic Adventure 3. I want to have hope for this fanbase, but they're making it really hard for me. You're cool, of course, but I'm kind of scared to tell people I like Sonic because of his fanbase...

The only thing I care in videogames is how good is it. Play and enjoy the game is the important fact.

I don't get why they're bitching. I'm a fan and I don't really care what system they use.

You speak the truth! It took me a long damn time to get the consoles to play these exclusive Sonic games and I'm not complaining. I think it was worth the time and money.

THANK YOU!
Most of my favorite Sonic games are from Gamcube, Gameboy, Ds and Wii.
I wanted a WiiU, but I never had a good reason why I should get one, until now.
I would also buy whatever console Sonic is exclusive with (except that one time with Sonic free riders)

Got a 3DS, just need a Wii U for the full experience, who knows, there might be some console to handheld interaction with Lost World. The exclusive stuff doesn't bother me at all, that and I am looking forward to what the 2014 Olympics and Lost World has. hopefully with a bit more depth to the story. I just hope the third unannounced game is Rush 3.

I had a feeling that they were going to create an Olympic Games IP. But These were the only 3 Sonic games being made for WiiU and 3DS. There are other Sonic games coming to XBOX360/Infinty and PS3/4 (namely Sonic Excursion and two unnamed Sonic titles).

I actually like the Sonic Mario Olympics stuff. Maybe if they added in old Sonic characters, like Mighty or Ray, we'd have something going on at least.
