I was gonna send in a story I found floating around somewhere but this seems to be it.

Some hackers apparently found some information inside the demo that contained info on an emulator inside the game that's going to house a few of the Sonic oldies.

Nice!
Achieving is something that everyone has to do at some point in life. Does it matter what?

I've already bought the original Sonic but it will be a nice extra for those who haven't

If it included Sonic 2 that would be awesome, I think it' the second best Sonic game next to Adventure 2 battle(which needs to come to the arcade ASAP)
Shame I thought the 3D Sonic section in the new demo was awful, I'll wait until it's much cheaper before I think about buying it.

Even though I already have pretty much every one of the old Sonic's on the Arcade this is still an epic move on Sega's part. Glad to see them rewarding their loyal community. Hope it's unlocked in a cool way, and there's an achievement for it or something!

Can Sega just let this old fossil of a game rest. Sonic was great back in the day, it's been milked to death now.

OH GOD YES.

On topic, I've already got the original Sonic game on the XBLA, but it's a nice bonus for people who don't! This is looking good.

It'd be nice if the save crossed with the XBLA versions but I doubt it will

Yes Sonic Adventure 2 does need to come out on XBL Arcade ASAP, would buy that for sure and am looking forward to playing the game when it comes out.

Nice addition but I already have the old Sega Megadrive Sonic games on the Xbox 360 because I've got the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection game :)

Looking forward to getting this next week though, had it pre-ordered for a few weeks now.

I think that's a pretty poor extra. Giving away a DVD of some of the old cartoons would be better, anything's better than giving away a game all your hardcore fans already own 3 versions of...I mean... seriously?

This.

Which reminds me, I need to get around to the last couple achievements in Sonic 1 and 2. Blasted time-based playthroughs...

If SEGA wanted me to buy it they would have made the CE available in the states.
