[XBLA] Sonic The Hedgehog

Upcoming Xbox Live Arcade title, I have no idea when though. Is anyone interested in this one?

I have to say, if Microsoft want to make a nice impression, they should release it before January - especially when it'll be a nice 60hz, HD version with achievements (compared to the bordered, slow 50hz version PAL Wii owners are subject to).

I think I'll be getting this if it's 400 pts.

Not an Xbox owner. But if XBLA has Sonic, does that mean Wii cannot have it?

Its mentioned on another thread that N64 Goldeneye might be coming soon as well. Anyone know if thats true?

I cant see any reason why the Wii and Xbox couldnt both have it? You can buy it as a phone download so its already out there on other platforms.

Sonic is already on Wii. Loved the original, but the sooner Sonic 2 comes out the better, personally preferred that one

It's coming - Peter Moore announced it in May (for the end of the year). It's two Sega deals, one for Xbox and one for Nintendo.

I wonder if Microsoft will prepare it to attempt to steal some Wii virtual console thunder. It would be quite effective I think, as in a 'why go for the old 50hz standard def emulation when we are offering a full HD experience' yadda yadda yadda. Muchos consumer brownie points.

I'm not bothered.

Played it to death on the Megadrive, PC, PS2, XBox, GBA, GP2X and now my PSP

Ooh, I nearly bought this from the Wii shop but if it's due on XBLA sometime soon I'll wait (if I can).

Presumably it'll be upscaled HD rather than a remake. I'd love to see a HD remake of Ducktails or Castle of Illusion on the Megadrive, they were beautiful
