  1. Microsoft can’t be too shallow to put these in… Something else is being held back about this release, I’m sure of it…

  2. Wow, those achievements are…not really achivements. 9 can be done by the end of Hydrocity if you know where to look for Chaos Emeralds…

  3. Yes, I own the Sonic Mega Collection
    Yes, I have it on emulator
    Yes, own the Ultimate Mega Collection
    Yes, I’ll buy this

    And yes, if they release S3&K on Live, I’ll buy that as well


    At least this will have something the UMDC doesn’t have; online play.

  4. This seems foolish. The Sonic Team originally indented it to be with Sonic and Knuckles, so why didn’t they put Sonic 3 & Knuckles on Xbox LIVE Arcade instead?

  5. One run thru of the game will get you all those achievements.. but still, great excuse to play the game again³

  6. Sega repeatedly releases Sonic 3 repeatedly. I disagree with that, but I understand that their goal is release Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles as seperate games, then possibly release Sonic 3 and Knuckles as another game.

    I disagree with it… but… whatever.
