He wasn't my favourite voice for Sonic, but still glad we had him for this long.

I like all of them, even the Japanese voice actors (which make Sonic sounded like a Bishōnen).
It's really hard to pick who's my favorite, I really can't.

Industry Insiders Explain Why Video Game Movies Are Getting Better And More Popular



Quote
Dmitri Johnson, who co-produced Sonic under his company dj2 Entertainment, was involved in the movie's on-again-off-again production since 2012.
He said that "everyone thought it was a joke," during the early phases of production, but that attitudes changed following the film's highly successful release.
"Shortly after that, the incoming calls definitely increased from studios [and] networks saying, 'Hey, whaddya got next?'"

So... what's this I've been hearing about a 30th Anniversary Concert? Or is it just rumours?
Not that it matters much to me given I can't go to America.

Yeah, that news was revealed in February’s issue of Total Licensing Australia magazine.
Since it's on the reputable magazine, most likely it's true.
It's just there isn't any detail about that information other than it probably will be virtual due to COVID-19.

Lol.. That's different kind of "virtual".
This "virtual" here according to definitions from Oxford Languages means
"carried out, accessed, or stored by means of a computer, especially over a network."

Aw.. It would be cool if Sega made a virtual convention hall or concert and VR players can attend the crowed. Maybe in VRChat which has become a rather public VR service.

Heck Lil X Nas held a concert in Roblox of all places. But I know sometimes Phantasy Star Online 2 have special guess characters non-canon to PSO2 lore, such as Hatsune Miku, so they can do it there as well I guess.

It would be cool if happened but the target audience would be limited.
Not everyone has VR device, but everyone could always watch youtube stream.

VRChat would be a good platform for it given you don't have to have VR to play it. Just a functioning microphone for chat.

I read it in Steam page it's still in Early Access.
But it's been released years ago (1 Feb, 2017), why is it still in Early Access?
