If Sonic 4's original price point of 1200 Microsoft Points ($15) was a little too rich for your blood, you can cancel that transfusion you set up with your obscenely wealthy uncle. Sega will drop the price of the game to 800 Microsoft Points today, and to $10 on PSN next week.
  • Sonic 4: Episode 1 (XBLA) -- 800 Microsoft Points ($10), down from 1200 Microsoft Points ($15)
  • Sonic 4: Episode 1 (PSN) -- $9.99, down from $14.99 (goes into effect October 18)
