SEGA has revealed that Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 on Windows Phone 7 is this week’s Xbox Live Deal of the Week in all territories. For one week only, you can grab the game for just £2.29, down from £5.49. Oddly, SEGA says the game has dropped from $6.99 to $4.99 in the US, while the Marketplace lists it at $2.99.
You can buy the game from the UK Marketplace here or the US Marketplace here.

I for one am certainly not an advocate of SEGA squeezing every last penny out of their old games by re-releasing them over and over again…hell I must own about five copies of this game on different formats now. However this week we cant really complain as the Megadrive / Genesis version of Sonic 2 is XBox Live Arcade’s deal of the week. Rather than having to fork out the full whack of 400 points, the offer is now open for a limited time to download the game at 60% of it’s initial price.
For those who have played this game to death and are looking for something new, this will be of no importance. For those of you “achievement whores” out there, this is a golden opportunity to beef up your Gamerscore at little cost; the achievements are really no challenge.
Having said that, you might want to call your friends for that last special stage as the AI really won’t help you. Stupid Tails.
