SEGA de-listing Sonic games with low scores


Can you erase history? SEGA seems like they want to, deleting their lower scoring Sonic games from history. How do they judge if a game is ‘low scoring’? Metacritic.

“Any Sonic game with an average Metacritic has been de-listed. We have to do this and increase the value of the brand. This will be very important when more big Sonic releases arrive in the future.” – Jurgen Post, SEGA’s Senior Vice President of EMEA

Jurgen says they want to keep the number of Sonic titles on shelves lower, only to the best available games. That way users won’t get confused seeing 10 or more Sonic titles on the shelves.

Sounds reasonable. So if you want to get brand new copies of Sonic & The Black Knight or Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, you should go and get them now. Actually don’t, use that money to get Sonic 4.

    I actually find this like a good idea. Fuck ethics.

    Yeah, this is a good idea. Though I expect Sonic Colors to get pretty much the same kind of scores, so there is still a lot to do to improve the overall image. Appearing in more games with Mario might kill some of the bias, I guess. =/

    To be honest, I kind of do want to pick up Sonic and the Black Knight myself, so looks like I might have to sooner than later.

    You expect Sonic Colors to get low scores? I think you will be proven wrong next month.

    Thank God I still have my collection just like above except 06. I lost it somewhere in my room.
