Thanks to Simon Perry via email and some guys in our comments for jumping on this. At around 8pm Tuesday, Sega released the second demo of Sonic Generations on Xbox Live Arcade for Gold account holders.
Sega France, and later Sega Everywhere, late last week confirmed the release for Wednesday, but rapidly backtracked to bring it forward. The PSN release in America, however, was pushed back to Tuesday the 25th.
The demo, the best part of 650 megabytes big, contains the classic Green Hill Zone featured in the previous time-restricted demo, as well as the modern version of the same zone, which has previously only been seen in the press and at game shows. And via hacking of the original demo, but let’s not go there.
PlayStation Network currently does not have the demo, so we’d love it if you guys can give us the heads up when it does!
Ian, aka "bmn", is the guy that keeps TSS up and running. If something goes wrong, you know who to blame call. He's a developer for the Speed Demos Archive gaming site, and when he's not stealing about making invisible changes, he writes in an attempt to justify his existence. Poor guy...
