Sega President Simon Jeffery says we won't be seeing Sonic the Hedgehog on a next-gen platform for quite some time (after the Olympics title that is).
"We are actually undergoing a fairly considerable refresh of Sonic as an intellectual property and as a character".
Wii's game Sonic and the Secret Rings is the first to reflect part of this change and has been a relative success. Sonic's other next-gen outing on the PS3 and Xbox360 however is slated as a disaster.
Aside from Secret Rings, Sonic's games have taken a rocky path in recent times, their quality more or less whizzing downhill. Let's hope his refresh does him good and we get to see him back at his best soon.
