Sonic Generations Buyer’s Guide

The release of Sonic Generations is in sight, so if you haven’t pre-ordered it yet, or you’re planning on getting it after release, here’s our list of the top deals we’ve found.

We haven’t tried to be exhaustive with this list, but these are what we think are the best deals. If you know of any better ones, let us know! Thanks to Shadzter, Jix, Jennytablina, and others no doubt, for helping us compile the lists.

Note: Where retailers are grouped together in these tables, they are owned by the same company and usually have the same prices.

Sonic Generations in the UK
We don’t know exactly what form the retail PC version will take. Judging by the prices though, it may simply be a redemption code for the Steamworks version. We’ll clarify when we know more.

Sonic Generations in the US
Unfortunately, Sega aren’t releasing the PC version of Generations as a retail disc outside of Europe. It is, however, available to preorder on Steamworks for $29.99, including free downloads of Sonic 3D and Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and other retailers are also offering download codes.

Our US table is really small right now – most places we’ve found are selling at RRP o_O – so if you know of a competitive price, please get in touch.

Sonic Generations Collector’s Edition
The Collector’s Edition is a bit tougher to find, as most of the best deals have already sold out. If you’re not in Europe or Australasia, you’ll probably have to import, as the CE is exclusive to those regions. Bear in mind shipping costs and the possibility of import taxes.

Honourable mention goes to Amazon UK, which sold out reeeeeeal early, but gets a few in every couple days. If you can catch one, they’re going for about £75.

RRP UK £99.99 £99.99
Retailer Country Xbox 360 Sony PS3 Conversion to £
Amazon DE Germany €95.99 ~£83.50
Grainger Games UK £98.99 £98.99 UK £99.99 £99.99 £99.99 Spain €126.95 €126.95 ~£110.50
* ships to Europe only.
There are also sellers for the CE on eBay UK and eBay US. The prices are usually very high, but you never know.
