Sonic Nails Down Date And Price

Today, Sega of Japan announced full Japanese release details for the PS3 version of Sonic the Hedgehog, and they also took another step in clarifying the PS3 software price controversy.

The fleet-of-foot blue hero will blaze into stores on December 21, and will sport a retail price tag of 6,800 yen (just under 58 USD). This is actually a current generation amount; most PS2, Xbox, and GC games are assigned that price. Does this mean we can expect a $49.99 deal here in the U.S.? We should find out before too long, but PS3 owners should probably anticipate the normal - yet still not officially confirmed - $59.99 tag.

This information concerns only the PS3 version, as we still don't have a Japanese release date for the Xbox 360 Sonic.

At the same time, Sega further announced a price for Sega Golf Club, which is slated to ship for the PS3's launch on 11/11. The former arcade hit will also retail for 6,800 yen, which brings us even closer to securing and verifying the accepted $59.99 prediction.
