Sure I like Sonic, but I don’t think this is much of an incentive really to buy a tablet at GameStop ?! Sure you’ll get Sonic about a month before it’s available anywhere else, but is it really that big of a deal? I don’t think so, but hey maybe someone out there REALLY loves Sonic…
Right now, gamers who purchase a tablet, including the Samsung Galaxy, Acer 100 and ASUS Transformer, being sold at 200 GameStop locations and online at www.gamestop.com, will receive a copy of Sonic CD, pre-installed and ready to play today- far ahead of its official launch in December. This exhilarating Sonic game is compatible with the proprietary Bluetooth gaming controller being offered with the tablets.
“After 20 years of working with Sonic the Hedgehog, you would think we have learned how quickly he moves, and how impatient he can get,” said Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America. “We just could not wait to share the classic look and sound ofSonic CD’s cherished gameplay and characters. GameStop customers will get to be the first to see the efforts that have gone into restoring this title for a new digital generation, and we know they are going to enjoy the results.”
Following the classic story of the original, Sonic CD sees Dr. Eggman planning to cause chaos and take control of the future by stealing Time Stones from the Little Planet. Sonic must speed through levels and travel through time while fending off Eggman’s robots to recover the Time Stones, and meet up with the game’s classic friends and enemies.
Sonic CD will be released on all digital platforms, including Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network, iPhone® and iPod® touch, iPad®, Windows PC Digital Download, Android and Windows Phone.
