Best Buy Stores in US Break Sonic Generations’ Street Date

Twitter user Ceej64 has alerted us that she was able to buy an Xbox 360 copy of Sonic Generations at her local Best Buy in Dallas, Texas. Ceej64 shared a photo of the game (above) and her Xbox Live Gamertag PMS KillerKitty (as publically shown on her Twitter) currently shows the game is in use.

Our very own Brad Flick reports on Twitter that Best Buy in Burbank is also selling the game early.

Thanks to Ceej64 and Brad for the heads up!

Best Buy Black Friday: Buy A 360, Get “Sonic 360”


Hey, my American brosks, I have good news.  Sonic the Hedgehog for the X360 is now at a “best buy:” free.

On Black Friday, that famed day after Thanksgiving where mothers kill each other over a laughing muppet, those in the U.S. can head on down to Best Buy and get an X360 Elite and six games, including the infamous Sonic the Hedgehog.

Xbox 360 bundle: Numerically, Best Buy pulled together an even better deal for gamers eying a new Xbox 360. But reviews may say differently. This Black Friday deal includes the high-end Elite console and six games, all for $299. The Xbox itself is a great value, with more online features than the PS3, a larger catalog of games, and a higher install base – so more of your friends are likely to own one. But the six selected games are a little weak. Here’s the list (with review scores from Metacritic): Sonic the Hedgehog (46 percent), Spider Man: Web of Shadows (68), Wall-E (50), LEGO Batman (76), Pure (85), Ghost Recon 2 (86).

So, if you don’t own a X360, want one, and like this game, you can get it at a steal with the purchase of a console.  If you don’t own a X360, want one, and are curious to play this trainwreck, then it’s at a reasonable price of zero dollars and zero cents.
