Nintendo Wii: Sega Says Sonic Colors Is Not For Hardcore Gamers

In a recent interview Sega’s Takashi Iizuka has stated that Sega’s promising Sonic Colors wasn’t created to appeal to hardcore gamers and is instead meant to appeal to children between the ages of six and twelve years old.

“We know there are sometimes opinions about control from core gamers, but we’re intending Sonic Colors to be played by children of probably between six and twelve years-old. So, with Sonic Colors we have aimed to make a game that everyone can control and have fun in.”

“So, it’s not really a game for the core gamers. If you take the rail grind, it’s something that’s fast, not difficult but is fun to do and looks great. It’s about making a game that’s right for the core audience of the game.”

  1. This is retarded. I just want them to continue with what they are doing with Sonic 4. Games like that will be the big sellers

  2. I don’t think there are hardcore games, I think there are good and bad games. If you know how to enjoy a particular game that you think it’s good, it can be as good as a 6 years old child play it.

    1. thank you, i am kind of sick of hering the word “hardcore” its starting to have no meaning, i see it more then i see cars on the street

  3. It’s about time they really went back to their roots.

    Video games were always for children at the core. The only problem now is that people have a clouded view of this and the game will be too easy and, overall just childish.

  4. i think they just need to stop trying to target age groups with things like this and just say its for everyone. Thats what the label E means.

  5. well this game looks less kiddyer then mario galaxy 1&2 and alot of people like that game not just kids
