Sega to celebrate Sonic's 20th birthday with variety of proj

I wonder if they will finally do a proper sonic collection with all megadrive sonics and socic cd and maybe sonic adventures? unlikely as they have just released sonic adventure via psn/xbox live and there is a dreamcast collection on the horizon but sega are also not shy of flogging a dead horse and getting money for old rope so it may happen but my moneys on some socic cdless sonic collection once again

There's no reason for Sonic CD to not be included. Now it's been emulated onto Sonic Gems Collection, getting it working on other platforms will be easy.

By my count we could have 6 Sonic titles this year

-Sonic 4: Episode 2
-Sonic Colours HD
-Sonic 3DS
-Sonic Anniversary
-A reliable source hinted at a new Mario & Sonic title (non-Olympic this time)
-Probably another compilation

Sonic Anniversary is whatever the "big" Sonic game is this year. Rumour has it that it's going to be classic levels remade using the Hedgehog Engine. Or it could be SA3 or something.

Sonic Colours HD isn't confirmed but an informant from SEGA said that Sonic Team is set-up and prepared to do it as long as the Wii version sold well. It crossed the 1 million mark this week.

@ rustym
Sega megadrive ultimate collection on ps3/360 has sonics 1 to 3,sonic and knuckles,sonic 3d and sonic spinball plus loads of other classics such as the steets of rage series,golden axe series,story of thor,shining force 1 and 2 and many othersplus its probably really cheap by now.
I never played the mega cd version of sonic,was it any good?

Dosen't anybody remember SONIC R for the Saturn?! That game was amazing, I think it was by 'Traverler's Tales', I'm not sure. A HD version or even just a port on XBL Arcade would be very welcome.
