Watch a French Man Look At Sonic Generations’ Collectors Edition

It is near the stroke of midnight on the east coast of the United States of America. Unless you happened to live in Austin, Texas, the moment is now here. Sonic Generations will be live before you know it. Every reimagined level, each remixed track are waiting for your gaming pleasure. Sure, if you live Europe you have a bit longer to wait…well, unless you happen to live in France. Which is apparently the Best Buy of Europe.

The below video has spoilers only if you don’t want to know track listings and see inside books of art. And yes, it is in French, so if you are morally against such things, be sure to hit the mute button.

Normally this isn’t the type of video I’d put on the front page, but because of its continent-specific nature, and because it is part of the 20th Anniversary[tm] celebration, it only seems fair to throw it up here this one time. The collection itself looks as nice as the pictures implied, and how can you say no to two smiling Sonic’s looking up at you?

Though the documentary hasn’t been screened by outside eyes, the track listing celebrating the 20 Year of Sonic Music has been revealed, covering just about every major game in the series, with more than a fair representation of the spin-offs. The most glaring omission? Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic 2, more than likely because of the music right issues involved. But after the release of the fantastic soundtrack to those two games, I think we can let this one slide.

    My predictions were correct, it is multilanguage!!!  Shame the box was in French, I don’t really want the box back in German but whatever, awesome that I got it.  
    How did he get it though?  I thought it was through online order, unless his already came in?

    Lovely soundtrack we got here. A nice history lesson for less knowledgeable Sonic fans. Shame we don’t have any tracks for Sonic 1 or 2 here though. Stupid copyright laws…why can’t they just be like Sonic and not let any copyright law in the universe stop them from releasing music from their two most popular games?

    Seems odd they would list Sonic 3D Blast with it’s US name. Didn’t everyone else get it as Flickie’s Island?

      There may be some licensing problems with the flickies. Either that or swag thought it sounded better.

        I don’t see why there would be licensing issues…I’m pretty sure Sega would own the Flicky license lock, stock and barrel. But what really annoys me is that they used “Sonic Championship” on there…Sonic the Fighters sounds a lot more interesting as the title of a game. That, and it was called as such in Gems Collection, the only home release of the game. Championship only exists because Sega of America was afraid of a name.

    I lost it when he showed off the Gold Ring. I had no god damn clue that it could come out of the case like that.

    I love that Chaotix keeps getting official attention, no matter how minor it is. Makes me keep hoping for a re-release!

    I would do anything just if SEGA would release that statue for a good 100! The book and CDs and the ring are nice, but that statue is a must-have for any Sonic fan! Oh well, I can always dream about it, right?

    The songs on the soundtrack were announced weeks ago…

    That guy sure loved his promotional hat.

    I bet Amazon don’t give me a hat with my CE order 🙁

    I can’t believe it’s out. 😛 I’m deciding whether to get the Xbox version or the PC version. (Thank Amazon, they have the PC version for 30 bucks. :P)

    “And yes, it is in French, so if you are morally against such things, be sure to hit the mute button.”. Why this attack? All of us love Sonic no? Or your site banned French people ? pathetic.
