The game is available to download for £24.99/$29.99/29,99€/$49.95AU, with a demo available to try before you buy. Oddly, SEGA hasn’t said a word about this on their blog or social media sites.

SEGA has announced that last year’s kart racer Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is now available for download from the Xbox Live Marketplace’s Games On Demand service for Xbox 360. The download weighs in at 3.82 GB and will set you back £14.99/19,99 €/$29.99.
SEGA issued a press release, which you can check out below.
SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. today announced that Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing™ is now for sale through the Xbox LIVE® Games On Demand platform for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The hit arcade racing game, starring SEGA’s eclectic ensemble of heroes and villains, is available for immediate download, allowing players to jump right in to frantic, explosive races with up to four local players, or eight online players.
Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing puts players on the track and in the shoes of a host of popular SEGA characters, from the blue blur himself to AiAi and Dr. Eggman, each with their own unique vehicle. Players must use their driving skills to drift and dodge their way to a checkered flag in a variety of single-player modes, as well as multiplayer races both off and online. The racer is the latest title to appear in SEGA’s growing library of download-ready games through Xbox LIVE Games On Demand, including hits such as Bayonetta™ and Aliens vs. Predator™.

It’s been a month since Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing was released in the U.S. and to mark the occasion SEGA have released the last game in the Superstars/All-Stars series SEGA Superstars Tennis on the Xbox 360 Games On Demand service. The game costs £19.99 in the UK and $19.99 in the U.S. and weighs in at 3GB in size so it’s not too big compared to other Xbox 360 titles. If you’d like to take a swing at a court first you can download a free demo before you net yourself the game. Let’s hope this re-release will get the online multiplayer ball rolling or in this case bouncing again.
