PS Store Today: Trine 2, Sonic CD, L.A. Noire, a lot more

Merry Christmas from Sony! Sure, you have to pay for all of this week’s PlayStation Store goodies. But Sony Claus has been very good to us all the same.

This week sees the release of (deep breath now) Trine 2, Sonic CD, Apples To Apples, L.A. Noire, NCAA Football 12, Just Cause 2, Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Centipede (a PSone Classic), and Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 for the PSP. Whew! Now that’s how you do a PlayStation Store update!

More information on all of these titles can be found after the break. And a complete list of all of this week’s game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation.Blog. (more…)

XBLA Today: Sonic CD, Joe Danger

Sonic CD, considered by many to be the last great game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, is now available to download from the Xbox Live Arcade. Best of all, it’s been priced at 400 Microsoft Points ($5), which is a great deal for a great game.

Also available this week is Joe Danger: Special Edition, which carries a slightly higher price of 1200 MS Points ($15). Joe Danger lives up to his name as “the world’s most determined stuntman” by doing his best Evel Knievel impression. That includes jumping over buses and shark-filled tanks (although I think that was Captain Lance Murdock). But the most amazing thing about Joe Danger is that it was partially funded by Sony. Talk about your dangerous deeds!

More information on both games can be found after the break. (more…)

Sega officially laces up Sonic CD for PC, PSN, XBLA, mobile devices

A few days after Sonic’s CD adventure was inadvertently revealed by Major Nelson, Sega has officially announced that Sonic CD will be coming to the PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in late 2011. The game will also be available for mobile platforms including iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone and Android.

Featuring the first appearances of Amy Rose and Metal Sonic, the Sonic CD port will include widescreen graphics, the original Japanese soundtrack, special iOS features, Achievements/Trophies and the same story every Sonic fan knows and loves:

Following the classic story of the original, Sonic CD sees Dr. Eggman plan to cause chaos and take control of the future by stealing Time Stones from the Little Planet. Sonic must speed through levels and travel through time while fending off Eggman’s robots to recover the Time Stones, and save Amy Rose from his mechanical twin, Metal Sonic!

Sonic CD will make its public debut this weekend at PAX Prime. The game (actually, the XBLA version) will be available to play at the Microsoft booth.

Microsoft showing Sonic CD at PAX Prime

Now this is an awesome surprise. Microsoft’s Major Nelson laid out the company’s PAX Prime lineup in a post on his blog. Mixed in among other Xbox Live Arcade titles like Trials Evolution, Crimson Alliance and Orcs Must Die is an XBLA port of Sonic CD.

Sonic’s Sega CD adventure was last made available through the GameCube-exclusive Sonic Gems Collection (OK, it was on the PS2 too if you lived in Europe). It’s inclusion on the Xbox Live Arcade is a bit of a no-brainder as Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic 4: Episode 1, Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic Adventure are all already downloadable from the service.

Sega has yet to formally announce Sonic CD for the XBLA, so this could be a mistake, but it sounds pretty legit to me.
