Hey guys I came across this article earlier so thought I would post it, the article says that after years of making 3D Sonic Games Sega are finally making another 2D Side Scrolling Game like Sonic 1, 2 & 3, check it out.

'Sonic The Hedgehog 4' Announced

Sega has revealed the future of Sonic the Hedgehog, and it looks like the speedy blue tornado is returning to his roots after several mediocre releases. "Sonic the Hedgehog 4" is a direct sequel to "Sonic 3" and "Sonic & Knuckles" and will bring the franchise back into 2D. The game will be released episodically, with the first episode coming to PSN, Xbox Live Arcade and WiiWare this summer. A trailer is available on GameSpot.

To editorialize a bit, this is a brilliant move by Sega. As much as people love the classic gameplay of Sonic, there's no way that sort of gameplay could sustain a full $60 release. By putting it out episodically, Sega can charge $10-$15 for each pack and not feel the need to stick in random character filler. Looks like it'll just be Sonic running really, really fast, and that sounds perfect.

Just imagine the sort of insane time trials that'll come out of online leaderboards for a 2D Sonic game. I have a feeling that the online community is going to take to this title in a big, big way.


After reading this I think this is an awesome move by Sega and can't wait for this Game to come out on the PSN Network just hope M$ don't chuck any money Sega's way again for another delayed exclusive.

What do you guys think?

It's nice to see Sonic return back to his 2D roots, but I think the damage has already been done to the Sonic Franchise. So much so, I cannot imagine this will get a huge following - but at least Sonic will go out with a bang rather than a whimper. :)

Was tempted by the 360 when I considered upgrading from my PS2 but after the RROD problems I decided to stick with Playstation and got a PS3.

RROD twice. First time it was still under warranty. Thankfully second time with some gentle coaxing.........they replaced it.
So far so good, we have two and no probs at all with the newest one.

Twice ouch can't believe all the problems the 360 has had in its lifetime if Sony or Nintendo had done that with the PS3 or Wii they would have been hauled through the regulators and everything but MS seem to have a knack of getting out of stuff.
