I'm not really comfortable with it either... I can forgive Sanzaru for that last hairball since they made one kickass Sly game and an okay Ratchet & Clank game. (But Beardman!) Yes, I know, those are Sony games I'm talking about, but if the can make an awesome Sly game for the utama console AND a handheld, then they should be able to at least make an average Sonic game.
Plus I solely blame SEGA for those cosmic craps from last year. They're like an Activision from Japan.
