Sega’s Classic v. Modern Sonic Facebook Poll “Just for Fun,” says Twitter Feedby Tristan Oliver April 15, 2011
Don’t Read Too Much Into Lopsided Results
Remember, both Sonics are in the trailer for what we believe to be Sonic Generations released last week. So why was there a fuss over a poll Sega held on its Facebook page asking fans to choose between the blue blur’s modern or classic rendition?
Most obvious, the current results–showing almost three and a half times more votes for Classic Sonic as of this article’s publication–demonstrate a continued desire to see a true return to original form for the hedgehog from the franchise’s oldest fans. But so much of it has been made elsewhere that while most were opining on the box art prototypes we first revealed to the world, Sega took to Twitter Thursday to clear the air.
“(The) Facebook poll is just for fun,” the statement said. “We wanted to try the new poll functionality and give our million+ fans a chance to have fun too.”
The bottom line: Everyone calm down.
