Sonic Generations Exceeds Previous Sonic Game Pre-Orders

While some people on the Twitter-verse are proclaiming that some stores broke street date on Sonic Generations, most are waiting for Nov. 1 to spin dash in for their chance to experience a game “20 years” in the making.

According to Sega, that amount waiting is one of the largest crowds the series has ever seen, with the developer touting that the game “exceeded all previous pre-order records from the 20-year Sonic catalog, making it the most anticipated title in Sonic the Hedgehog’s iconic history.”

Certainly not a claim to scoff at, even considering the concept of “pre-ordering” a title may not have applied back in the 16-bit Era. Given impressions from the few that have their hands on the game, the wait looks to be worth it.

    The wait BETTER be worth it. Well I know I’m getting the special edition so I know at least that will be worth it, who doesn’t want a replica gold ring and a statue of 2 Sonic’s?

    well,how can you not pre-order this game,having to play once again as both Super Sonic’s,re-picturing those stages we wanted to see with HD(and 3D)quality and beating the crap out of those guys which tortured Sonic through his 20 years?The only way you will not pre-order this is that you don’t have the money on time…

    Hopefully this’ll encourage them to bring back the classic gameplay in future titles!

    Hehe, I’m definitely thinking this will have them retracting this previous statement of not bringing Classic Sonic back.
