Maybe you're a Sega fanatic -- we sort of are. Maybe you need to have every Sonic title ever made. Maybe you...

Like rusty scaffolding glimpsed behind a tarp flapping in the wind, the numerous technical issues in Sonic the Hedgehog are a reminder of the blatantly unfinished work that permeates the platformer. Consider this video a "Men at Work" sign, warning you of loading times that pile up so high, the...

We haven't touched the Xbox 360 game Sonic the Hedgehog, but we're kind of glad we didn't. Following Revolution posted a video of the game's load times during some mini mission where you help out one of your human friends. And look what we have, a loading screen literally every five seconds. Serious...

Did we seriously just quote Alanis Morissette? It seems so, but think about it: Sonic, a very very fast hedgehog, is delayed... so, so, so, he's got to like, slow down. Isn't it ironic, don't you think? Ahem. Back to things that make sense. Sonic is going to miss launch day. By a bit. So, for those...

We've got a link to some screens here... screens o' Tails for the PS360 Sonic title. Did you like that? Who would have ever thought of combining those two consoles? Me. That's who. Anyway, check out the screens and you'll also notice what appears to be some sort of character selection screen... wher...

If Sonic creator, Yuji Naka, knew that this is where SEGA wanted Sonic to go, it's no wonder he left the company. The Sonic demo, if you haven't played it yet, is bad. Really bad. Believe me, I am a Sonic fan. I write for 360 Fanboy it's true, but I am a SEGA fanboy at heart. Thus, it hurts me even...

Sega announced today that the PS3 version of Sonic the Hedgehog will grace the Playstation 3 on December 21st at a price point of 6800 yen (the same as the current gen game price...

Here's an image that made the rounds on the internet this weekend: a purported box shot of Sonic the Hedgehog for the PlayStation 3 "caught in the wild." Take a close look at the upper-left corner: Zachary Hinchliffe has found the bottom portion of a GameFront watermark that was showing the Xbox 36...

Now that we know when Sonic is coming, why not take a gander at some movies shown at the Japan Expo -- which was held in Paris, oddly enough. The videos have no sound it seems, but they do give us a glimpse at the telekinetic powers of Silver (the white one) and show off one of Sonic's levels, too....

IGN has the scoop that Sonic the Hedgehog -- of the next gen variety -- will launch for the 360 on November 17th. This rendition of the classic franchise is supposed to take Sonic back to his roots. One can only hope, I suppose. The mere fact that the number of playable characters has been reduced...

Speaking with GameDaily BIZ, Sega's Scott Steinberg confirmed plans to contribute two titles, Sonic the Hedgehog and Full Auto 2: Battlelines, to the PlayStation 3 launch lineup -- Virtua Fighter 5 will follow next March. Neither game gives Sony an advantage at launch, since Sonic has already been c...
