Microsoft celebrates Sonic’s birthday with a sale

Happy Birthday Sonic. You turn 19-years old this week. That’s old enough to know better, yet not old enough to drink in the US.

Bummer.

To celebrate the occasion, Microsoft and SEGA have teamed up to offer select Sonic titles for cheap on XBL for one day only – June 24.

Here’s what’s on offer:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog (Arcade)
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 3
  • Sonic & Knuckles

All titles are 240 MS Points, for the day, instead of the regular 400 MSP.

Get ‘em while they’re cheaper, we reckon.

Thanks, Major.

    Avoid anything in 3D like the plague. Generally with Sonic the older the game the better it is.

    @10 That’s OK then, I’d assumed it was the Games on Demand version of 2006′s Sonic the Hedgehog!
