Sonic Generations & M&S London Confirmed For EB Games Expo Australia


Live in Australia and want to check out Sonic Generations and Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games before release like everyone else in the world? Well, you’re in luck, as EB Games Australia has announced that those two games and more will be present at this year’s EB Games Expo, with more games to be announced at a later date. Unfortunately, the company hasn’t announced what platforms the games will be on and say “Playability of game differs for each title”, but with both Sonic Generations and Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games playable at other events a month before, then it’s very likely attendees will be able to get hands-on time.

EB Games Expo Gold Coast 2011 will take place October 15th and 16th in Broadbeach on the Gold Coast of Australia at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre. Tickets are available to purchase from EB Games’ website.

Pics of the Sonic Colours Figure, Argos Drops Price

EB Games Australia is now listing the Sonic Colours: Special Edition that other countries have been listing for a while, which comes with a Sonic Colours themed action figure, but until now we’ve not seen a picture of it. Two pictures are now available, but why two you say? Because it appears you get different Wisps with your Sonic figure depending on which version of the game you purchase. The Wii version comes with a White Wisp, an Orange Wisp and a Cyan Wisp, while the DS version comes with a Yellow Wisp, a Red Wisp and a Blue Wisp. Seems odd that the Blue Wisp would come with the DS version, since it only appears in the Wii version. If you pre-order, you can still get the free Sonic hat too.

Argos, who we told you will be giving the figure away with pre-orders in the UK, has now
slightly lowered their prices for both versions. The Wii version has been dropped from £33.99 to £31.99 and the DS version has been dropped from £25.99 to £24.99.

Thanks to Blue Blood at the SSMB for the heads-up!

EB Games Australia Reveals ASR Pre-order Bonus

EB Games Australia have revealed their bonus gift you can receive when you pre-order any version of Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing. The gift looks to be the toy race cars based on the game that were revealed last year in concept art form to be released this month at Toy Globe.

EB Games warns you that the racer you get may vary on purchase so it appears you dont get to choose your favourite character, you instead get what they give you. It’s unclear wether Australia will still be getting the Ryo Forklift DLC code ArchangelUK revealed for Europe where he stated Australia might get it but wasn’t sure.

Will you Australian fans be grabbing this deal? Let us know in the comments.
