It blows our mind to say this, but yes, there is a boycott for Sonic the Hedgehog 4. Yes, the title that fans have been anticipating for years – Sonic’s return to 2D on consoles. But alas, that’s a problem for some.
The main point of this petition, which boycotts the release of Sonic 4, is the basic assumption that this game will not be as good as the classic Sonic games. Apparently, seeing only seconds of gameplay has made them decide not to buy it.
Fans of the sonic series are like most sega fans, we want their old games brought back to the glory days when sega was pretty much the power in video games. Seeing the gameplay of sonic 4 has made many of us realize what we already knew, Sonic 4 will simply not be anywhere near as good as the original sonic games. Either way, We will decide to finally show sega what the fans truly want. A real sonic 4, as long as sonic 4 stays the way it is, we will not buy it, we will in fact buy sonic 1 on release in protest of sonic 4, till we end up with a re tool, or change, we want sonic in hd, not sonic RUSH HD. We will not buy a future sonic game, till we get a true successor to sonic 1/2.
So, instead of buying Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and costing sales for SEGA, the petition plans to buy the original Sonic, giving SEGA money anyway. Yeah, did we mention that this was absolutely ridiculous?
