Sonic burst onto the scene in 1991, but since then there has been a plethora of main and spin-off titles that have feature the little blue Hedgehog.

Now, Mike Hayes, the boss of Sega West, has admitted the company has been making "too many Sonic games." But he's promised that they won't be making the same mistakes in the future.

He also states that Sega now realise they have two very different audiences to please, and recently, they been confused about what their target audience is.

"We've got us lot sitting around the table that's the original fanbase, which is huge, and then we've got a younger audience that just sees Sonic as a good icon but they want a game that's relevant to them," said Hayes.

The next title, Sonic Generations, is planned as a celebration of Sonic's 20th anniversary. It hopes to please both sets of fans.
