BRING IT AWWWNNNN, I know they couldn't let people use real money but it do incredibly well if it did award Market place points.

They could do some cool stuff with this. Give away points, games, and damn a tourney to get a wpt seat would be sweeet. ha, they could even give away their own bracelets (rubber prob) for big tourney wins, I'd sport one.

Oh wait, no. It's in Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.

I don't have the UGC but I hear that in the UGC they didn't allow S&K connectivity with Sonic 1, 2 & 3, but here, you have full connectivity with all 3 games, so..... yeah.
