Sonic the Hedgehog is now 20-years-old. To celebrate, Sega is bringing two Sonics together in Sonic Generations for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. To sweeten the deal, Sonic gets a rare "collector's edition" bundle, full of collectible tchotchkes.

Sadly for North American and Japanese Sonic enthusiasts, this special edition version of the November-due game is for Europe and Australia only. Our PAL pals will get one collectible figurine immortalizing classic and modern variations on Sonic; a commemorative gold ring; the "20 Years of Sonic Art" booklet; and a 20th anniversary soundtrack collection. See visual details in the gallery above.

The CE also includes the "History of Sonic: Birth of an Icon" documentary, an "exclusive collection of interviews and footage charting Sonic's life from inception through to becoming one of the most iconic characters in videogame history" according to Sega.

Add to that some fancy packaging, some downloadable content and you've got The Works. Sonic Generations goes to Europe and Australia on November 4, but at least those of us in America get it a few days earlier (November 1).

DISCUSSION

You know, as a Nintendo fan this hurts. No offense to Sega fanatics, but Sonic is a rather mediocre franchise, with maybe 4 or 5 out of the 30 or so sonic games actually being any good and even then paleing in comparison to the typical mario game.

Even if you disagree with that, you've got to agree that the sonic franchise wasn't particularly ground-breaking in any way. Basically Sonic was designed to compete with SMB and every time nintendo re-inveneted Mario, a similar Sonic game was released.

And Sonic gets his 20th anniversary celebrated with a really nice package. What did SMB, Zelda and Metroid get for their 25th's?? Jack and squat.

The only comforting thought is that this won't be released in Japan/NA, meaning that is screws over most of the Sonic fans and that the new Sonic game will probably suck.
