Sonic ’06 Xbox360/PS3 discontinued?

If your looking for a Sonic fix on Xbox 360 or PS3 this Christmas, don’t expect to find it in your local high street or shopping centre. Many major video game retailers in the UK have now removed stock of Sonic the Hedgehog for Xbox 360/PS3 from their shelves. Stores include: GAME, Gamestation, HMV, Zavvi, Currys/Digital and Comet.

Many online retailers have stopped listing the game too or have it listed as ‘Out of stock’. Gamestation’s site had it listed as ‘Out of stock’ this morning and removed the game this afternoon. Some online retailers still have it in stock at very cheap clearance type prices.

  • HMV’s website lists both formats currently out of stock;
  • Zavvi’s website lists both formats at clearance type prices;
  • AmazonUK only list it by other sellers and no longer sell it themselves now;
  • GAME’s website list the PS3 version as ‘Stock alert’
  • Gamestation’s website listed both formats this morning as ‘Out of stock’ and now this afternoon it is no longer listed but replaced with “No results” messages.

Sonic X DVDs discontinued

Penpen2nd of the Bumbleking Forums recently received an e-mail from the anime DVD seller/publisher Right Stuf that the Sonic X DVDs have been “marked for close out”, and will be discontinued as soon as it’s sold out.

I was recently able to confirm this with their customer support. This means that these DVDs may soon start disappearing from store shelves for good. If you want them, you’d best pick them up now. As far as I know, this only applies to North America, or wherever Funimation distributes the DVDs.

Sonic X will be airing in reruns as part of 4KidTV’s Saturday morning line up this fall.

Dudes, Stop The Fighting!

Right, call this an apology to VCP if you will (not to the SHQ Invaders, since they happen to be…. ‘just visiting’).

VCP, I shouldn’t have snapped at you like that. Your way of describing Sonic’s world is new to me, so I cannot say for sure whether you were right and I was wrong etc, but because of my outburst, I was wrong. I had no right to snap at you like that, and if it’s OK with you, I’d like to delete the topic (if I just do it anyway, the SHQ fanboys’ll have something _more_ to dig at me about, that I’m trying to cover up what I started -_-).

Eastwood was right – look man, I didn’t mean to get off on a bad start at the MoFo, OK? I should have just left it and thought about it, but what can I say? I have a flaw – I act on impulse, doesn’t most people do that? Still, I’m sorry anyways… but come on – there was no port of call to just spam like that (so I’ve heard from another topic, I only just got on and have no real time to chat…). Also, if VCP never wanted a fight in the first place, how come about 5-10 Sonic HQ fans have suddenly appeared on my Message Board? A certain ironic possibility arises there…

In either case, bringing more people to back VCP up was just plain stupid. Like Joshu said, this only made the problem worse – all I want is a nice little community in which we can have a laugh and talk about Sonic in – or is that idea copyrighted by Sonic HQ too? o.O
