Manchester United will always get a minimum of 5 minutes additional time at Old Trafford and, most importantly, Sonic will always be one of gaming's true heroes. The Sega icon put a face to the console name and, say it quietly, the zippy hedgehog is actually celebrating his 19th birthday this year. Of course what better way to celebrate this than with a brand new adventure and we'll get that in Sonic 4, which is due out later this year. In the mean time, Nintendo fans can kick off the party early by playing some of Sonic's finest console ventures together, on the same media for the very first time."
