A little blurb for ya on this Monday.  Sonic 4 Brand Manager Ken Balough has informed me that SEGA Football Manager and all Sonic titles on iOS devices are discounted and that all of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross relief efforts.  The sale/relief effort will extend through the rest of this week.
