Sonic Adventure 3 Domain Name registered

Quote:
UPDATE: Six Sonic Adventure 3 Domains Registered By…Someone

By Tristan Oliver
– July 23, 2012

It Could Be Nothing, But…

Four top level domains–sonicadventure3.com, sonicadventure3.net, sonicadventure3.org, and sonicadventure3.info–have all been registered on or around April 22nd of this year by an unknown party, TSSZ has learned.
At present, all pages presently point to a default landing page, and nowhere near Sega’s own website.
In the past, Sega had a tendency to register domains for upcoming titles before a formal announcement, either in-house or via third parties, as a means to protect company IP. The way these domains were registered, however, gives plenty of cause for suspicion. This time around, the registrant is the French division of 1&1 Internet, a company primarily focused on web hosting. That is a change from the last three times a Sonic domain was registered. Domains for Sonic Generations, Sonic Free Riders, and Sonic the Hedgehog 4 all eventually fell under the management of EuroDNS, where they remain today. Consider also that, even if Sega’s French division was behind the registration of these, the arm closed its doors last month, along with numerous other subdivisions of Sega Europe.
So, the pattern here doesn’t really match Sega’s past behavior–making the jump to an actual Sonic Adventure 3 in the works very difficult. But with the domains active for over three months, one would think Sega would have caught wind of it and take action were the registrations unauthorized. We’ll keep it under Rumor for now, but don’t hold your breath. Thanks to Sawnik98 and Sonication for tipping us.

UPDATE: Since this story was first published, we have found two more related domain registrations. One, sonicadventure3.fr, was spotted by tipster Bruno Guerrero via Twitter. We have also since found sonicadventure3.eu. Both domains appear managed by the same 1&1 Hosting division in France, and both appear registered around the same time as the aforementioned four. If this a hoax, it’s a very thorough one. We have contacts in France checking this out; if we hear anything more, we will pass it along.

Normally companies will do this just so nobody else takes the domain and exploit it; regardless of whether it's a real project or not.
For an example, I'll remind you of the modernwarfare3.com 'scandal', where someone had registered the domain name long before the game's announcement, and used it as a redirecting site to battlefield3.com.

That being said, I'm not doubting the legitimacy of this rumour. Given the excitement that Sonic Adventure 2 received upon its digital rerelease on the 360 and PS3, this could be SEGA's big break.

Mr.Efra is an unknown quantity at this point

I hope Sonic Adventure 3 come up, because the first two games were amazing, now imagine the third!

First game was just ok, but SA2 is amazing. If they make a third that is better than 2, I'll be very pleased. If they throw in the chao garden to boot, and some online play to go with that I will crap my pants. This is all assuming it's real, of course.

seeing this thread reminds me how much money can actually be made in trade marking domain names...popular ones at that...just a thought to the entrepreneurs on the NFF.

Actually, It seems about time for SA3. Just throw some online gameplay and bonus artwork. And you have my money.

Hope this means that the game is in the works. And the Chao Garden is cool, they should bring it back.

Yes, Over 9000 times yes. The Chao Garden totally needs to make a comeback. I hope that this actually turns out to be true, and they go through with making it.

I kind of see Sonic 2006 as Sonic Adventure 3. Honestly, I really don't think that game was as bad as everyone says.
