  1. Being able to save for the first time…

    Pfft, what about the save state feature in every sonic collection game ever.

  2. Will they fix the Super Sonic mid air glitch at the end of an act on Sonic 2?
    Will they include Knuckles in Sonic 1?
    Will they include a preview of Sonic Chronicles 2?

    *Every time someone says Sonic Adventure 2 was good, all Sonic players worldwide are disconnected from their online Smash Bros Brawl game*

  3. Oh, good. So it does have a lock on feature. At least they got that much right.

    What would turn this into a mega-badass compilation is if it were a straight up port of Sonic Jam.

  4. I’m actually seriously considering getting this now. I never pass up the excuse to play through the originals again, and there’s just something that doesn’t feel right about emulating them on PSP.

  5. What I’d really like to see is Tails and Knuckles in Sonic 1. And maybe let Tails actually fly in Sonic 2!

  6. Now Humblefellow has a good idea. That’s what would make this a must get game.

    You know what else would be nice, remember how Sonic 2 and 3 have those racing modes. It would be nice to play those without having to split the screen. You think they’ll inclde those modes on the DS? It would also be cool to have Sonic and tails Co-op, but Tails wouldn’t have to be left behind since he’s got his own screen (second player has their own DS).

  7. I was thinking the same thing Sonictoast, if they did something like that with that with 2 players.
    I bet it would give it that much more coolness to it, I would get for sure it if it had that.

  8. Didn’t Sonic Jam allow you to save on Sonic 1 and 2? In fact I’m sure of it.

    You know what Sega how about putting some effort into these money milking re-releases and perhaps add things to them or fix glitches and framerate issues? A proper 2 player co-op mode, as many have said would be welcome!
