Sonic CD Release Date, Price and Launch Trailer!

You heard it right. Sonic CD releases tomorrow for XBOX LIVE worldwide at 400 MS Points, on PSN in Europe/Australia for $5 American and on iOS for $1.99. Android too, but price unknown. PSN America gets it one week later for $5. Sega has released a trailer for the launch. Here’s what was said in a press release sent via E-Mail….

“Sonic’s 20th Anniversary has been a banner year for him – as well as for everyone at SEGA. Gamers around the world are rediscovering their love of Sonic through his adventures, new and old. Whether you’re a long-time hedgehog aficionado looking to enjoy a favorite moment from Sonic’s past, or a brand-new player who wants to join in on the fun, there’s no better place to start than with one of Sonic’s most celebrated games, Sonic CD.”

All I gotta say is…5 bucks?!! DAAAANG That’s way cheaper than I was expecting. May buy it for both my console and iPhone.

    I cannot believe this is only $5! When I have time to play this game, I will get it again.

    5 bucks is a steal. I am going to buy it twice just to show my support. That is 2 more than s4e1…. yup

  3. I’m getting this for 360 and iPod Touch (assuming they support first gen Touch, which they should considering S4E1, SMB2 and Chu Chu Rocket do)

    So, the game is pretty good? I never owned a Sega CD system.

    • The game is great! Totally worth $5 (I’d price it at $10, but SEGA is being generous). Those used to rollercoaster levels as seen in 2-3&k will be disappointed in the layout. It is much more like a Sonic 1.5, with a bigger emphasis on platforming and exploring.

      Just grabbed the game. It looks amazing. Having the original and American OST is a nice treat.
      It takes some getting used to, but for 5 bucks, hell of deal.

    This game really was worth more the 5 bucks. Makes you question why such a piece of shite like s4e1 had been sold for 15. I really hope that sonic CD, being brought out with such hype will set sonic’s standards back to normal with good physics and such. Taxman’s retro engine seems amazing.

    It’s 4,49 € in the EU. Can’t wait to finally play Sonic CD. 🙂
