Sonic 4: SEGA & Dimps Developing; Plus: Rumored Impressions?

Microsoft caused a bit of a stir among Sonic fans recently when it revealed on its website that the developer of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 would be none other than Dimps, who some would argue were responsible for most of the "good" Sonic games of the past decade. However, SEGA contests that this is not the full story. Speaking with Joystiq (via GoNintendo), the company elaborated that "Sonic 4 Episode I is being developed by Sonic Team in cooperation with Dimps." TSSZ News reveals a more elaborate answer given by SEGA of America Community Manager RubyEclipse on the company's forum. Check that and more out after the cut. Read More

SEGA Offers Discounted Bundles Aplenty on PlayStation Network

SEGA has had a variety of specials running since last Thursday for those who are on the PlayStation Network. Fortunately, they are slated to continue through the 18th, so it's not too late to get in on the action. On the PlayStation Portable, there are two game packages available, with the first being the "Driving Me Crazy" bundle, containing Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars and Full Auto 2: Battlelines. SEGA doesn't name a price on this one, just that you can save $12 by purchasing it, so if you're interested in those two, it might be worth looking at. The other is the "Set My Pulse Racing" bundle, which contains both Sonic Rivals games for $29.99, a savings of $16. And that price is probably close to what the other bundle goes for, too. On the PlayStation 3 side of things, you can score the "Love Conquers All" bundle of three Valkyria Chronicles mission packs for $9.99, a five dollar savings. They also have the "Unleash My Desire" bundle for Sonic Unleashed, containing six downloadable add-ons for $11.99, which is a discount of six dollars. Read More

Media: Leaked Gameplay of Sonic 4; Developed by Dimps?

SEGA has been teasing us for weeks and months on end of what exactly we can expect from Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, formerly known as Project Needlemouse. And now, things are beginning to come together. The previous trailer revealed by the company offered only a few brief seconds of gameplay video, video that seemed to create as many questions as it answered. But today, an "anonymous source" has given 1UP some offscreen shakey-cam footage of the game from Microsoft's recent X10 event: 1UP also has some screens with their report, and TSSZ News has uploaded all of it to their own site, just in case it gets pulled.

Media: Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing - All-Star Move Video, PSN Demo, More Achievements, No Wii DLC

While we've seen a lot of character reveals and footage of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing over the past few months, one thing we haven't seen a lot of are the characters' All-Star Movies. Today, SEGA and Sumo Digital have rectified that with a new trailer which takes us on a whirlwind tour of what several characters are bringing to the dance-- er, race: "Is your race in trouble?" asks SEGA. "Maybe a few missiles here or there or maybe a quick whack on the bumper from your friend will help get you back in the mix. I'm sure your rivals won't mind lining up behind you for a dance... or getting smashed by your favourite hammer." "Of course you could always just go super..." Read More

Fans Petitioning for Oldschool Sonic in Sonic 4

In all likelihood, SEGA probably thought they nailed it when they released the first teasers, production art and trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 4. They had the logo. They had the sounds. They had the music. They had the enemies. They had 2D, side-scrolling gameplay. The story picks up right where Sonic & Knuckles left off. And they had reduced the cast to its core fundamentals. What more could a fan of the oldschool Genesis Sonic the Hedgehog titles possibly want? The answer, it turns out, is the oldschool Sonic. There tends to be something of a divide among Sonic fans when it comes to the character, his design specifically. For some, the leaner, more modern hedgehog is their preference, but for others, it's when his eyes went green that everything went south for the franchise. Read More

SEGA Steps Up to Defend Younger Sonic Fans from "Elitist" Followers

Over the past several years, SEGA has introduced new twists, turns, and features to the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise which have not gone over so well with everyone. And while they have enjoyed the enthusiasm for the blue blur's seeming return to his roots in Project Needlemouse, they have not found all of that enthusiasm to be positive. "Now the vast majority of old school fans are awesome, absoluetly [sic] S-Rank superstars – BUT there are those out there that believe that all Sonic games should be for them. Needlemouse may well be going in a classic direction, how much so you'll have to wait and see – but just because it is it doesn't give older fans the right to shun, put down or shout down the younger fans," argues the Sonic City Blognik.
