Sonic The Hedgehog reboot?

oddest thing, i was chatting with some friends in a message board and one of them mentioned something about a possible reboot of Sonic The Hedgehog.

now, i own no Sonic games except Sonic The Hedgehog 2 on Genesis, and despite that i have played a few. Sonic Unleashed, Sonic and the Black Knight, and Sonic Colors, borrowed from my local library. i liked them all and personally, i don't think they need a reboot. i googled "Sonic reboot" and came up with the remake of the first four Sonic The Hedgehog comicbooks, (ie the miniseries that started it all)

so, one of them said the series has nowhere to go after Sonic Generations unless they free the Robotniks or reboot it. so i said that it's be cool if they made the hypothetical new series based on the comicbooks, keeping with the graphics from the previous games and just going with the storyline. then i had another though: this new Sonic videogame series would be based on a comicbook, that is based on a videogame. that made me think of the Street Fighter movie and the game based on it. but SEGA has the ball and can do whatever they want.

now, like i said before, i would like for Nintendo to buy up SEGA and  make them into a first-party developer so we can have the Nintendo/SEGA Zelda-Mario-Starfox-Castlevania-Metroid-Fire Emblem/Sonic/Phantasy Star/other cool SEGA stuff crossover we all know we want. isn't likely, but it'd put more power behind Nintendo and SEGA would be back to having Sonic game exclusively on one console, brining the Sonic and Phantasy Star fans over to Nintendo. it'd be a good business move and it's please the fans.
