Hi-Res PC Shots of Sonic Generations, Plus Silver the Hedgehog’s Reveal

We are in the home stretch. Bar any delays, in less than a month you’ll be able to get your hands on Sonic Generations. The hype is huge, with trailer after trailer after trailer teasing every single aspect of the game. This is what Sonic fan’s live for. And with the “finally-decided-to-tell-us” reveal of the game for the PC, Sega has let a few HD screenshots of that version be revealed, showing off such levels as Green Hill, Rooftop Run, and Seaside Hill.

Oh man, the cart came back!

Of course, other than the cart showing up, there really isn’t much new to the screenshots, other then a certain electrical icon appearing here and there. Perhaps that’s why Sega decided to show off Sonic’s third rival boss, representing the modern era of gaming: Silver the Hedgehog.

Looking to share some similarities with the previously-announced fight with Metal Sonic, I can be glad of just one thing: it’s not in a invisible-walled part of Soleanna. Admit it, if you were stuck in a boss where you couldn’t move at all, would you be happy to relive those moments? I didn’t think so. But here…Sonic will be able to run like the wind, and Silver can throw cars to his heart’s content.

All the shots that have come out today are hiding out below, so give the gallery a whirl.

    Classic Silver would probably rape my brain.

      *Facepalm* there is NO Classic Silver! Unless you are talking about Silver from 06, but its pretty much the same thing nothing different at all!

    NO! SILVER GOES FASTER THAN SONIC!!!!!!! ANd the 3DS version doesn’t come out till New Years. So you guys will still be posting stuff on Generations, they just wont be 1080p hahahaha. Geez cutscenes where are you? 

  • Reply

    Well this blew my whole theory that Classic Sonic fights Silver out of the water. But I like these screen shots, A LOT! I never guessed that Silver uses his psychic powers to “fly” alongside Sonic’s speed. Shadow can run on par with Sonic I knew that (DUH) but I didn’t see Silver being able to run (or rather “fly”) on par with Sonic. NICE SEGA!!

    Silvers Hopefully LAST appearance.since hes god awful as a character.

    • Reply

      He’s not god-awful. It was his writing that was god-awful. Hopefully the new game will see to that

    Eeeesh! These screenshots look amazing!

    At this point, is it really possible to not be hyped about the game? 
    IT’Z NO USE!!!

    Sonic’s reaction to Silver being in his game.

  • Reply

    yeah silver ….. like we all didnt know that he was not going to show up here now hope that the actual fight from what it looks like isnt going to get us trapped against a wall where he can zap us in the air knock our rings out of sonic fall on the rings and rinse and repeat here from that game that as far as i can tell almost everyone really does hate that title but i cant wait for this game i need my NEW GOOD Sonic fix here

    I hope this game works with Nvidia 3D Vision

    I’m really tempted to cancel my ps3 preorder if they can guarantee DLC (casino night) for the PC version.

    In the thirteen screenshot, it looks like that
    Silver is trying to do his best impersonation of
    the prince from Katamary Damacy…

    THAT HEDGEHOGS CARRYING A CAR!!! *Shot*
    But in all seriousness, it’s amusing how they brought the cart back. Speak about the details Sonic Team is giving us. Oh and the picture where Sonic and Silver clash…Silver’s face makes my day XD

    At the 3rd picture on the third row….. “It’s no use!”

  • Reply

    Silver may turn badass in this game, but I bet we’ll all still remember him as “Pothead the Porcupine”.

    • Reply

      Much agreed. 🙂
      Though I still can’t help thinking that
      Sonic ran headfirst into the car, sending it flying to hit Silver…

  • Reply

    some of the shots look like they could use a little AA. Anyway it’s really good to see the PC love from Sega of the late. Back in the day they were a huge backer of Microsoft’s then new DirectX

  • Reply

    All these are PC shots, right? Looks awesome.

    That Silver is carrying a car!

  • Reply

    Pretty cool stuff! For a second there, I didn’t read the title so when I saw the cart and seaside hill I thought this was Sonic and sega all stara racing 2 or something LOL!

  • Reply

    It’s been the best-kept secret* in gaming this year, but we’re delighted to (finally!) confirm that Sonic Generations will be released on PC(…)
    *this is sarcasm.

    I couldn’t stop laughing when I read this!!
    This game is gonna be epic. I don’t know why but I will be playing more time with classic Sonic than modern, and the modern one is great too.

    Silver’s in the game, and we have to fight him? IT’S NO USE!

    Just kidding, but I’m looking forward to it.

  • Reply

    I lol’d at the ‘IT’S NO USE’ tag.

    Are you sure these aren’t 360 screenshots? The X and Y icons are buttons on the 360.

    • Reply

      PC games using joypads usually use the Xbox ones. The 360 controller is the “Microsoft controller” if you will.

      • Reply

        I dare to disagree. Recently most multiplatform publishers include XInput supports, but 90% of older stuff and most independent productions utilise DirectInput as it is more flexible under most circumstances.

    • Reply

      Basically the game is using XInput for gamepad support which is sort of easier for them to do when working of the Xbox 360 build 

  • Reply

    The screenshots are really amazing and silver is somehow cool anyway. And of course he had to appear, it’s Sonic 2k6 after all but…
    … I do miss the time where Sonic only real rival was Knuckles. =P
    It’s funny how only Shadow, Silver and Metal Sonic can be the rivals today, as Knuckles DOESN’T RUN! lol (not enough at least. if he did, it would be weird)

  • Reply

    Man alive, Silver, Shadow, Metal, Perfect Chaos, Crisis City, Chemical Plant, Sky Sanctuary, the Death Egg, classic Sonic…it’s getting harder and harder to imagine how this could possibly NOT succeed. Clearly it’s got a lot going for it. Sure as heck hope it lives up the hype…

  • Reply

    Silver as a boss, throwing anything he can at you including a giant katamari of shit instead of a cheap as hell battle where once he grabs you you’re prettymuch dead? I have no objections

    Although since Shadow’s on the arc and Metal Sonic’s in stardust speedway, it’s a shame Silver doesn’t have his own level. Also a shame you only fight one of these rival bosses as Classic Sonic

    Sonic all by himself in the Ocean Palace’s Bobsled: Forever Alone.

    (X) BOOST

    It better really be the x key or I’m going to be pissed because there will be another consoiled port on the PC.

    • Reply

      But Sonic has always primarily been a console game. It SHOULD be played with a gamepad, and that’s the only PC game I’ll ever say that for.

      • Reply

        Then again, we can have good games with stupid people like super meat boy, who made incredibly bad controls on the pc version of the game.

        I just wanted to see like, Key GUI. It shouldn’t be that hard for sega to just plop the x key on there.

    Is it just me or is little planet extremely close to Crisis City?

    Also isn’t there suppost to be another demo coming out?

    • Reply

      What would be the point? SG will be released in about a month. also, did anyone else notice that that cart in the picture looks like a Lego car? Lol

    • Reply

      Probably not until the game’s actually released, and it’ll probably be a more “complete” Green Hill Zone demo.

    Got my Collectors Edition of the 360 version of the game from an Australian website by the way. I am happy now.
