Sonic the Hedgehog Virtual Console games being pulled from Wii Shop Channel

According to a report by Famitsu, both Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be removed from the Japanese Virtual Console on October 30, this Friday. No word if this effects the United States or other regions.

At least they're keeping Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles this time.

I thought I read about the two being pulled from Xbox Live as well, anyone hear if PSN is getting them pulled too?

There should be a spot in the contract that forbids people from pulling content from the shop...

I still wish I'd gotten S3&K, but to be honest I might be more likely to plugin my GCN to play Sonic Mega Collection than put my Wii U in Wii-Mode and buy points I can't fully spend to download them to an older service I probably won't use. But it's still kind of unsettling. I really wish they'd stuck around to make them all available for Wii U, but oh well.
