Sega: NA/EU Won't Get Inferior Version Of Sonic Unleashed

Sometimes, it's just a misinterpretation of the facts that can lead to widespread concern, but at least this time, Sega was good enough to issue a clarification.

While North American and European gamers will be able to indulge in the legendary blue streak's latest adventure next week, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Sonic Unleashed has been delayed in Japan due to "quality issues." Now, perhaps "indulge" is the wrong word to use due to Sonic's depressing decline over the years, but we do have high hopes for this next-gen entry. Lots of fans - and ex-fans - are hoping it can rejuvenate a dying franchise, so when we heard this news, the immediate assumption was, "hey...does that mean the U.S. and Europe will be getting a rushed, broken version of the game?" Thankfully, no. According to PSBeyond, Sega's use of the term "quality issues" doesn't relate to the game itself, but merely to the "sales strategy and marketing schedule." Sega of America has plainly stated, "there will be no quality difference."

Well, that's certainly good to hear. Let's just hope that after we get our hands on the game, we're not once again disappointed in the result. We've just about lost all faith in the character who once helped to define a generation - and a console - so Sega absolutely can't issue another mediocre Sonic game. If they do, we're going to pronounce the series dead, once and for all...

I've only heard good things about this one. The think that hurt sonic was going 3d wasn't suited for him because of free-camera issues. So this one, they made fixed camera angles and tracks for stages instead of open levels, to resolved the those bugs.

after sonic adventure 2 yea that was it, it had a good storyline but they just messed it up. Sonic 1-3 will always remain the best classics for me

Yeah I agree... Sonic was never meant for a storyline, or werehog -_-. The best sonic games are the ones that youp justg go through the levels. The only 3D sonic game I liked was Sonic Heroes.

Soinc Adventure 2 had the perfect formula in my opinion. I unfortunately bought the last sonic game, and man it was just horrible ><. I really hope this one turns out good, but I'm kinda iffy on that warewolf thing...

SONIC originals are THE best.the last one i bought was Shadow The Hedgehog...what a let down..anyways i have high hopes for this one yet again!! But this time im going to rent it first..If this fails they should seriously consider making a 2D with high res graphics..the formula works!!

I liked my Dreamcast Sonics but nothing could ever stand up to the 2D games of yesteryear. Everything's inferior to Sonic 2.
