Sega is de-listing Sonic games that are of low/average quality.
What this means is, any game that has been given a low or average score on Metacritic has now been taken off the shelves and will no longer be sold.
"Any Sonic game with an average Metacritic has been de-listed," said Sega's SVP of EMEA Jurgen Post.
This is offering the company a chance to increase the value of the brand and will hopefully offer a lot more for the new Sonic games coming out this Christmas; Sonic Colours, Sonic Free Riders, and Sonic 4.
Although, I am not sure many of us seasoned players will be able to forget the Sonic failures of the past, perhaps it's good for those not overly familiar with the Sonic games.
