Virtual Live Arcade

According to the games site Gamespot Sonic the Hedgehog, the original MegaDrive game, will be available for download as part of both Microsoft and Nintendo’s downloadable game services: Virtual Console for the Wii, and Live Arcade for the XBOX 360.

According to the site the XBOX 360 version of the game will be vastly superior. Renamed Sonic the Hedgehog: High Speed, the game is set to feature HD (high definition) visuals which Nintendo’s Wii is incapable of supporting.
