  1. I’ll probably Pre-Order 360 and get it on launch as long as I have enough money and then get the 3DS version for Christmas or my Birthday!
    So if the 3DS version is delayed a month or so, I’m not bothered as it won’t affect me!

  2. Definitely getting mine on launch day in Europe. I don’t think I’ll be able to stay off the Youtube spoilers longer than that. XD

  3. Only 2 months! I’ll probably get my hands on it a few weeks after the release because of where I live but I’m pretty fine with it. I’ll just have to fight my inner demons to stop myself from checking spoilers. 😛

  4. I will probably get this on 6th or 7th of November. I need to import CE from UK. I must resist spoilers!

    1. dude rockon i couldent resist watching playtroughs of unleashed (yeah i know but give me a break i was 9 i think so i bought everything including bad games *cough*06*cough* )but still i will just get it on the realesdate so good luck mate

      1. That’s similar to what I’m doing…No shame

        I’m playing all past Sonic games to celebrate The release of Generations and the 20th Anniversary 🙂

        And good luck Hunter hope you get the CE I’m finding way to get it too 😀 I’m so excited about this

  5. why is sega hating america right now -.-….not giving any info on ours when it’s supposed to come out sooner :(…

    1. uhmm maby they dont really have a realease date but hey dosent america get the games always earlier

      1. The November 1st US release date was confirmed via the ads at IGN, like the EU one was. I don’t think SEGA of America has officially revealed their date via a press release yet.

  6. great 8D uhmm do you guys know the price of the normal version cause on amazon it said 34.99 instead of 49.99 and im wondering if it will be the same price with euro’s

  7. I’ve already got the money I need for this game! Plus I’ve preordered it! All I need to do is rush down to the place I preordered from, buy and get stuck in!
