The official price for Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 has been revealed.
It better be worth the $15.
Personally i think it has more worth then the COD map packs i mean your not just buying empty levels here mate day one for me wish sonyw ould update stores in the morning im going to be waiting all day for this lol and erm how much is $15 in GBP?
CoD itself stopped being worth it two games ago, and overpriced dlc for a game that is pretty much exactly the same as its predecessor is laughable. why even make one every year? Oh yea, greed. I think Sonic 4 has questionable worth because of a few reasons. 1. They can F up so much about the series. 2. "Episode 1", which leads me to believe it'll take more $15 parts to play the whole thing. 3. Sonic Adventure on PSN/XBL cost less than this before the DX addon, and it could have been updated alot better. Maybe a sign of their work quality to come?
I was thinking more like $10 but oh well. If it is a good game and if they can really take Sonic back to its roots with all the HD glory then I won't have any problem paying $15 for a great game.
I think I'll wait for all the episodes to get bundled together and sold at a discounted price.
Wow, $15 for a 4 level SotH game? It better be epic -.-
"and erm how much is $15 in GBP?" 7 pound or so ..or the cost of an n64 game that you would pay for on the VC
the iPhone game better be a hell of alot cheaper than that.
didn't expect anything more than 15$ anyway. Most complete games like castle crashers and Trine are 15$ each. Now let's see if the game lives up to the hype ( and price)
So let me get this straight, it's $15 just for the first Act(s)? Like is this a demo or something?
No, they're just releasing the game in episodes. You're buying the first so many stages of the game. The next episode will have so many stages and so on. If they release 4 episodes total, it'll be $60 if you want to get all of them.
Three zones, three acts each. If this is long as Sonic 3 then another episode or maybe two will be enough, although for 45$ I would have definetely preferred a retail release.
i thought it was 3 zones + 1 bonus stage for 4 acts ? is your information confirmed ?
Not pleased with this price, especially since I know there are more episodes planned. Ah well I should learn by now, *looks over at Capcom*

Too damn much
This game has been planned as DLC episodes for a lot longer than case zero was planned, Plus I wouldnt worry to much, Theres one thing a lot of people seem to miss with the dead rising dlc 'demo'. A game that has the fun opportunities of that will sell well even as a buyable demo, Theres really not that many games out there that will provoke the same response. Basically if free demos are over it wont be for long, becuase nobody likes making stuff nobody is buying On topic though, Wow this game just became a huge kick to the man jewels. I paid £60 for sonic 3 when it first came out, If they do more than 3 episodes this game could end up costing me more than the average 'new game at a shop' and considering that I can go buy mega drive ultimate collection for less than that, and probably still have money left over to donate to a sonic adventure download.....Well just epic pricing fail sega. I was going to go with 800ms points an episode, this is almost double that and an absolute joke, look at the latest mass effect dlc for a better understanding of value for money...... And while were here, why the hell is this costing me as much or more than any other game considering its a digital copy? Surely it should be cheaper because of that
yea be around that price maybe £9.99 but i doubt it i for one am not pleased about the prospect of paying £40-£50 for what is a hd megadrive game, yeah it should be good but for that price i could get a full retail ps3 game of higher quality and i suspect with more play time. but saying that i will probably get it when it goes in a cheap bundle
Thats more than i thought it would be :|
are buy them separate, hhhmmm ill probably only buy the first Episode anyway, cant see myself buying any more, unless its absolutely amazing ill pick it up, but if its like three or four stages ill pass
im not gonna spend a bunch of money on 6 super quick levels and less then 2 hours of gameplay. They should just have an option to buy it all day one. I hate bite size chunks bs. Everyone pissed at valve because they are waiting for half life eps. episodes is not for gamers because things can change and crap happens.
On the 360 which is around £10 and its for 1 episode I wonder how many episodes there will...Way too pricy imo.
15$? lol No way
"Episode 1" just suggests they are doing this to make more money
I for one will be buying this day one to support SEGA for constantly supporting the Sonic fans by not giving up on Sonic. So many franchises have gone forever! So i will be gettin this for my iPhone even tho im jailbroken Im willing to pay for this full price just to support SEGA an i love what they've done with Sonic 4. An SEGA actually takes time to respond to my twitter questions so they are not up their own ass thats for sure. I highly respect them. follow @spinalc0rd an @SEGA its all good =)
How about a release date now? That's all we want to know, not the price. Oh and drop it on the iphone, iphone and ipad are bad for gaming and now it's just delaying this game.
i dunno if i'm willing to pay that for episodic content. maybe 1000. 1500 is 500 points too much.
