Happy 20th Birthday, Sonic the Hedgehog!!!

GO SONIC, IT’S YA BURFF-DAY!!!  GO SON……………….uh………….yeah….anyway…

It was 20 years ago today (June 23rd, 1991) that the original “Sonic the Hedgehog” game was released by Sega for the Genesis (or Mega Drive; depending on what country you live in) console in the United States, Europe, and Japan.  Sega is already celebrating by releasing the Sonic 20th Anniversary Bundle for download for the PlayStation 3, along with the 20-day-only temporary download of the demo for the new game, Sonic Generations.

This may not be a suprise to see this blog post since I mentioned that I was a Sonic fanboy in my introduction blog.  But anyway, something interesting happened this morning.  It seems that the Sonic Generations demo downloaded itself from my European PSN account onto my PlayStation 3, Also, and just as mysterious, my entire Sonic collection ducked out of their usual places to come out and party like it’s 1-9-9-1!!

Oh, Sonic..er..”Sonics;” allllllways the camera-hog…

  1. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be
    on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get
    annoyed while people consider worries that they
    just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
    top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks


  2. This site was… how do I say it? Relevant!! Finally I’ve found something
    that heloed me. Cheers!


  3. This is the perfect blog for anyone who really wants to understand
    this topic. You realize so much its almost tough to argue with
    you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a
    brand new spin on a topic which has been written about for decades.
    Great stuff, just wonderful!
