Sonic Team Supports Revolution?

Sonic the HedgehogIt's time for the daily rumor, this time courtesy of IGN where it's reported that Sega's own Sonic Team is working on a unique Sonic the Hedgehog title for the Nintendo Revolution, a game that is not the next-generation Sonic the Hedgehog game for the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Sony PlayStation 3.  The idea is that this new game makes use of the new Revolution controller.  Now I am a fan of the Sonic games so I'm pleased to hear this (if it's true), but I still have my concerns about playing a platformer title with the "wave, point, and click" functionality of the controller.  I still can't quite understand how platforming is supposed to work without a control stick, and until I get the chance to try it out for myself I probably will continue to show concern.

IGN also tosses off that old rumor that Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto and Sega's Yuji Naka want to do a Super Mario / Sonic crossover title which I suppose if that's ever going to happen, then the time would be now.  What better opportunity to combine two popular gaming mascots and friendly rivals than at the dawn of a new generation in gaming?  Can't you almost picture Bowser riding in one of Dr. Robotnik's wacky machines?  Or Sonic collecting a super mushroom and growing to twice his size?  I think it could work.
