Finally some good news for those who were waiting for the PC release of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The product page of the game has gone up on Steam, revealing that the release date is January 31st. Like Sonic Generations it also has a cheaper price than the console version: $29.99 in the US, €24.99 in Europe and £19.99 in the UK. However, if you pre-order the game 10% will be taken off the price and it can be bought in a 4-pack.

GreenManGaming also has it up for pre-order for the same price, but you can get it for another 25% off with this coupon code: GMG25-XTYYZ-POSL1. The product page also reveals the minimum requirements that you need to know if your PC can actually run this game:
