Sonic Heroes EU PS2 Box Art

US ratings board the ESRB has rated Sonic Heroes for the PlayStation 3, suggesting the PlayStation 2 game will finally be making its way to the US PS Store following its release on the European PS Store last February. No official word from SEGA or Sony, but as soon as there is, we’ll be sure to pass on the details.

  1. I already got it for gamecube a while ago, so I’m perfectly fine.

    Sweet! Now all they need to do is release a Sonic 3 compatible with Sonic & Knuckles and a new game and I’ll be all set!!!

  3. SolidSonicTH says:

    My PS3 won’t be besmirched by the game I declare as the start of the “dark era”…

  4. Awesome, even though I’ll stick with my PC version. I do hope they fix all the glitches though, since the PS2 was by far the worst version before.

  5. sonic heroes is amazing 😛
    it has the best collection of stages in my opinion :3

  6. Will they release it as a PS2 classic?

  7. Sawwwwwwwwnic Heroooooooooooooes!

  8. I liked Sonic Heroes, but the PS2 version was poor. They should release the GC/Xbox/PC version and just make it playable with PS3 you know.

  9. Sonicrush1991 says:

    No Xboxeh ;-;

  10. Cmon, why no love for Xbox? This is the only main Sonic game I haven’t played, and finding an old copy is proving difficult :/

  11. Hopefully they updated it to work as well as the GC version and not the PS2 one…

  12. Matt Martinez says:

    Oh sweet!!!!!! AND IT’S COMING TO PS3!! Cause PS3 rules motha****rs!!!

  13. I never noticed that the PS2 version was poor, was it frame rate issues or something? It’s been years since I last played it…

    Hope this comes to Steam!

    • Wow. It released in EU first on the PS3 and no words for a year? dammit sega! why don’t you give americans fine digital gaming first and not us the EU? Also, It’ll come to steam eventually as they had a PC version aswell

      • We get almost everything first. Why not let Europe get things first once in a while?

        • I’m not saying Europe should get most things in a while, It’s just that america has so much more than Europe. But I see your point there.

  15. I remember reviewers bitching and whining about the difficult controls and me thinking “You can’t be very good at computer games then”. I loved it, it was far more representative of the bat poop crazy Sonic world than any of the adventure games.

  16. Already got it on PC and Gamecube.
    Been here in the UK for PSN for a year now, and if I decided to buy it, I would have it for all three consoles [PC version is an XBOX port so…]
    Anyway, this is good for the Americans.

  17. I think this is worthy of a Freak Out Friday. Maybe next time, though.

    MANNNNN would I love to see this game in HD lol =D

  19. this is a good news for ps3 owners like me but one thing i will dislike about this future release is its a ps2 classic so no trophies :( right hog father.

    • Matt The Hedgehog says:

      Actually, there will be trophies. After all, the Jak and Daxter Collection had trophies for the 3 games, and look at the old Sonic games. They’ve added trophies. So I think it’s safe to say there will be trophies.

  20. I’m going to put my Sonic Heroes PS2 disc in my Wii U and stand there until it plays for me.

  21. Not the PS version. Didn’t it have clipping issues with springs and such?

  22. TheBlackHoodedGamer says:

    Ummm, yay? Wait.. PS2 classic? So, not really a full-on re-release like the Sonic Adventure games? O_O Good Lord, that scares me considering how poor the PS2 version is.

  23. Djaikniffsta says:

    I live in the uk and have ready got this. It’s pretty good, but has moments of bullcrap. Watch out for the scripted error in final fortress with team sonic: after a tornado jump your meant to land on a rail but sonic always misses. You have to move slightly to the right just before he lands. I think the reason this got reviews between that of sa2 and 06 was that it had moments of bullshit (unlike SA2) but it was fun to play (unlike 06)

  24. Dr. Robotnik says:

    They’re releasing just now in the US to prepare for the rumored Sonic game. It’s gonna be called Sonic Heroes 2: The REAL super power of Teamwork! I can feel it…

  25. ChaosPoochyena24 says:

    I need this. I got Sonic Heroes for the PS2 but its so scratched up its unplayable, so this will come in handy :). Plus it has one of the best Sonic songs: What Im Made Of… :3

  26. What goes up must come down, yet my feet don’t touch the ground…

  27. I want a new game ):

  28. If this has enticing new features and it doesn’t get released in the Australian (European) store, then I’m gonna order this off of my US psn alt account 😛
