For those who can remember the very first release of Sonic the Hedgehog in 1991, time certainly has flown by, but with Sonic still lurking somewhere in the background on a different platform, or with a new generation of players who ensure his impact on the gaming world lives on!
The days before Spin-Dash…
Sonic is one of the world’s most famous game characters, Sega’s official mascot and considered the very reason for their success during the early 90’s. This Thursday, both SEGA and Microsoft celebrate 19 years of Sonic the Hedgehog by offering special Birthday discount pricing for one day only. All Sonic the Hedgehog games available for purchase on Xbox LIVE Arcade will be reduced from 400 MS Points to just 240 MS Points each!
If you’re a Sonic fan and have all the titles already, then unfortunately there is nothing new announced that you can purchase. This year, Sonic Adventure, Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and Kinect enabled Sonic Free Riders are all upcoming Xbox LIVE Arcade games still awaiting official release dates.
