Sonic Comes to PS3 and Xbox 360
One of the reasons I bought my Sega Genesis was for Sonic the Hedgehog. It was a great 2D scroller, and I especially liked the fast action.
Well, Mr. Sonic is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360, Sega has revealed.
“Sonic The Hedgehog represents the most recognizable example of classic SEGA properties that we will recreate for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360,” said Naoya Tsurumi, CEO of SEGA of America, Inc. and SEGA Europe Ltd. “When Sonic The Hedgehog debuted on the SEGA Genesis in 1991, he reinvented the action-platform genre with speed and attitude. By harnessing the power of these new platforms, we are confident that Sonic will once again raise the bar for action gaming in 2006 and beyond.”
Sonic the Hedgehog will ship for the PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime in 2006, coinciding with the critter’s 15’th anniversary.
