Sega announce Sonic CD release


Most of the Sonic games have been re-released other the years on various platforms, as part of compilations or stand alone downloads. On the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the original Sonic the hedgehog is available to download, as well as Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles and the 2011 Sonic game, Sonic the hedgehog 4: Episode 1. One game that always seems to be missed from these releases has been Sonic CD. For all those who have been waiting for Sega to release Sonic CD on the PS3 or Xbox 360, there’s good news. Sega have announced that they plan to convert the Mega CD classic for release on Xbox Live, PSN, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Windows Phone 7, Android and Windows PC Digital Download. At the moment, it doesn’t look like Sega will be bringing the game to the Wii.

Sega release trailer for new Sonic game

To kick start Sonic’s 20th anniversary, Sega have released a trailer for a new Sonic game. Sonic the hedgehog 4 Episode 2 should be released this year, the sequel to Sonic 4 Episode 1 which was released in October last year. However this trailer doesn’t look like Episode 2 of Sonic 4 but, rather a new game entirely. Speculation is that the game may see retro sonic go head to head with next gen sonic, or both of them working together. What are your thoughts? Check out the trailer below.

Sonic 4 released on Xbox 360 and PS3


After 16 years, Sonic the Hedgehog 4 has been released. The game is being released in parts, so this is Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1. The game will cost 1200 points from Xbox Live Arcade. Alternatively, on the PS3 the game will cost £9.99 to download from the PlayStation Network.

On the Xbox 360 there is also a trial game which, even if you’re a huge Sonic fan, like myself, you may want to download first as 1200 points is a bit steep. The game download size is 191MBs.

Delay on Gears of War 3 Release

GearsOfWar3

Epic Games and Microsoft have announced that Gears of War 3 will no longer be released next April, with the company deciding to bring the game out in the autumn of 2011 instead.

The Xbox 360 exclusive was due for release on the 8th of April 2011 but, the latest release date of ‘fall 2011’ is a lot less defined and leaves us to wonder when we will actually see Gears of War 3. Epic Games are keen to let gamers know that the delay is purely for business reasons, not due to development issues, although they are also keen to reiterate that the game will be more ‘polished’ because of the delay.

Wii Sales Drop but, no Christmas Price Deals

nintendo_wii

Bad news for Nintendo as their Wii console and the DS handheld series seem to have lost their way in the UK gaming market. Both retailers Game and Gamestation are reporting that sales of the Wii and DS are down 40% and in fact, it is reported that Game have dipped into the red in their overall sales and are partly blaming the decline in hardware sales of the Nintendo Wii for their misfortune.

As the news of the potential lack of interest in the Nintendo Wii filters through, news that Nintendo have no intentions of reducing prices on their hardware over the upcoming Christmas period is also appearing. Presumably the company expects the Christmas sales figures, which have historically been highly successful for Nintendo, to be high enough to not need any encouragement from price drops or incentives to customers.

Bungie Reveal Possible Halo Reach DLC

Oops! Looks like someone at Bungie will be getting a slapped *insert body part here*.

Whilst discussing Halo Reach on the official Bungie blog, screenshots were posted up in an attempt to assist players in the task of installing Halo Reach to their Xbox 360 hard drives. Those screenshots happened to show the achievement points tab on Bungie’s own dashboard and those points don’t add up to the same Gamerscore points tally that comes with the retail game alone. This has led many to predict the release of downladable content for Reach in the near future.
