    If the rights to Sonic were sold to Nintendo do you think the blue Hedgehog would have a rise to fame once more? Or will he sink even lower due to Nintendo's deep hate for that blue Hedgehog? What do you think? If we saw a nintendo logo on the next Sonic game, would it suck, or be good? Tell me your opinion!

        True, if they did that, they'd kill him definately. Then again, they could just use the hedgehog engine for the next F-Zero game (I'm a big fan of the Captain). Anyway, no two Nintendo franchises are that similiar. Zelda games are for exploring, Mario is basic platformer with a basic twist (AND WE LOVE HIM FOR THAT). Kirby games are also platformers with a slightly larger twist! F-Zero is a super fast racing franchise. And Pokemon is and RPG. I think they can pull off a Sonic game if they gave it love and care they give any of their franchises.

            Nothing would change. Absolutely nothing.

            Sonic is in the same league as Zelda and Mario (and to be fair: Pokemon as well), things that nobody should care about but somehow still make companies enough money to release more games.
            Sonic will be absorbed and used but not changed, because the franchise already fits so well with everything else Nintendo is known for — and by everything I mean one thing: repetition.

            So, because Sonic wouldn't be changing, it's not better nor worse.

              I say it would be good, as Nintendo is one of the most popular video game companies in the world.

                All of you are wrong. Well to a certain extent. Nintendo first of all would see the potential in a speedy blue hedgehog and take it and make a game to remember and every console would have 2-3 of those games to remember like how they do for mario/zelda. Kirby though like pokemon is for handheld so im not going to go down that road. Second they wouldn't be retarded like the s-team is right now and make bunches and ooddles of spinoffs. Third off if nintendo where to go down the handheld road with sonic they would also make the handheld version of a sonic game to remember.

                So yeah to sum it up:
                They would be doing the s-team a favor and givng the hedgehog a good name again.

                  Maybe his fame would rise, for Nintendo is more popular, and Sonic has his own game style, so they can't really stuff him up.

                  I think either way, the Sonic franchise should just die already.

                  Seriously. SEGA hasn't dished out a solid, good 3D Sonic game in a long while. Lately they've just been burping out crap.

                  I don't see the point. Two good 2D ones and one decent 3D one. Dead franchise

                    Yeah. Sega should just sell the rights to Sonic since they haven't made a decent sonic game in a while.

                      Do they really need to sell the rights to Nintendo for Nintendo to make a Sonic game? BioWare has made a Sonic RPG, and they obviously don't own Sonic. Since Sega got to use Mario and other characters in the Olympic Games then Nintendo should get to make a Sonic game (unless you think Sonic being in Brawl was an equal trade.)

                      I'd like to see how it works out.

                        BioWare produced the RPG for Sega.

                        The same way GameFreak makes Pokémon games for Nintendo, except Bioware isn't second-party like GameFreak is.

                          If they go on the new style:bad. if they go with more sonic adventures:good.

                            We'd see about 164+ spin off sport games, a few RPGs, as much milking as possible and a much more casual approach.

                            Like Mario, only slightly worse. (That in itself is a great feat)
