Sonic Unleashed has been brought to PC thanks to intrepid modders. My first question was “why?” but now it’s “how?” as the game doesn’t exist on the PC format. it’s simple: they modded Sonic Generations to make it run silly. No wait, that’s not simple at all.

Nelson’s confirmed that Army of Two, Midnight Club: LA and Sonic Unleashed have all been added to 360′s Games on Demand service.
Buy them. You may as well. Apparently, “THE BEST WAY TO SEE LOS ANGELES IS AT 245 MPH.” You can’t argue with that.

Microsoft said today that some both GTA IV and Dead Space are to be added to 360′s Games on Demand service this month, which is probably pretty awesome.
Dates and other titles:
- October 13: GTA IV
- October 20: Sonic Unleashed, Midnight Club LA, Army of Two
- October 27: Dead Space, DiRT
Call of Duty 3 and Tom Clancy’’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 have already been added this month.

Sonic Unleashed has a new DLC pack available for 250 MS Points ($3.00)
The 528 Mb Chun-nan Adventure Pack has four daytime levels, as well as two Werehog areas in a “mountainous region best known for its dragon roads and majestic peaks.”
These are the same levels featured in the Japanese PS3 release, apparently.

A bit of concept art has surfaced showing just how different Sega’s blue hedgehog might have looked in Sonic: Unleashed.
Yeti, gangsta, tiger-striped — good thing they went with the werehog, eh?

GameStation’s dropped Sonic Unleashed to £19.57 in its deal of the day, as you can see here.
The news is even better if you’re a PS2 owner: the game’s yours for £9.78.
Buy. With impunity.

We’re told this morning that GameStation is to put Fallout 3 on sale for half price today, at £20.
The limited edition tins are also being reduced, with the console versions costing £25 and the PC CE at £20.
Sonic Unleashed is also getting the drop treatment this week, down to £20.
Fallout 3 for £20 is a bit silly. You owe it to yourself.

Japan still has Sonic bound-and-gagged tightest, but North America’s now officially detaining the blue hedgehog-man as well. Probably as some kind of symbolic gesture.
According to IGN, Sonic Unleashed’s PlayStation 2 and Wii iterations will arrive on schedule, but after that, the scrambling begins. First up, the game isn’t hitting North American Xbox 360s until November 24 – a week after its scheduled release. The PS3, meanwhile, won’t be downing its helping of hedgehog until an unspecified date in December.
Bad signs? Probably. But we still hold out hope that the game’s been delayed because it’s too awesome, and Sega’s feeling merciful.

Speaking to Kikizo, Sonic Team studio director Yoshihisa Hashimoto has said that Sonic Unleashed is going to be the game to win back the hedgehog’s fans.
“Yes, I do think so,” he said when asked if the faithful will be pleased.
“Because Sonic Unleashed has the game play elements that loyal Sonic fans want. It is not designed to be in the same format as classic Sonic, but we took out the best part of classic Sonic and successfully revived it to be a new Sonic the Hedgehog of the 21st Century.”
Hashimoto did concede, however, that criticisms of recent Sonic games were valid.
“I think the fans’ evaluations are fair I often read the forums run by Sonic fans on a routine basis,” he said. “I hardly feel any discomfort from their comments. I often find myself rather agreeable to them.”
More through there.

Well this is strange. According to a report by Siliconera, Sonic’s latest adventure won’t be making a pit stop in Japan until spring of 2009. However, the game’s release date remains unaffected in other territories.
And that’d be fine – if not for one perplexing detail. Apparently, Sega is slowing Sonic’s Japanese release in order to improve the game’s quality. But unless Sega unleashes a patch when the blue blur finally collides with the land of the rising sun, it appears that everyone else will miss out on the game’s elongated spruce-up. After all, the game arrives next week in North America and soon after elsewhere.

Sega’s put out a new video of Sonic Unleashed, showing Mr Hedgehog running along the beach and being a werething.
It’s down for a November launch on Gamespress and listed as a November 28 launch on Game.
After the break.

Video after the break, screenshots over at CVG. All looking very nice indeed, we think. Very smooth and brightly coloured: just how Sonic should be.
In other Sonic the Hedgehog news from today, he’s apparently the UK’s favourite video game character.
Click the links to find out why. Game’s out later this year.

According to this Campsonic exposé of the current issue of GamesTM, Sonic Unleashed lead designer Yoshihisa Hashimoto says that each level will last around five minutes, so that the player never becomes bored.
“There are a couple of guidelines we followed in designing the levels,” he said. “The first is that each 2D or 3D section should last around 15-30 seconds. The second is that the overall stage should be no more than five minutes long.
“We try to switch between 2D and 3D as often as possible so that no one sequence lasts too long. The idea is to create a pace that never allows the player to grow bored.”

After the break. Hopefully downloading Firefox 3 later will make video on the internet work again, because if we try to upgrade Flash one more time we’re going to get reported to the Flash police for theft. In other words, we can’t watch it.
Hopefully you can.
