The more I looked this list, the more I noticed that it a fair amount is off from the release dates that are often tossed around on the Internet. I should hope these release dates the most accurate since they are direct from Sega/Sonic Team, and that's probably the best source you can possibly get pre-sixth console generation. On the other hand, a few things are missing like the European releases of the Master System games, as well as some specific days of the month. LinkTheLefty (talk) 02:17, December 18, 2013 (UTC)
