Major Nelson has posted an update for September’s Xbox Live schedule, and the long-awaited port of Sonic Adventure to Microsoft’s service is scheduled for release on September 15 for 800 Microsoft Points, which is roughly $10 or so. The port is upscaled–that is, not in widescreen–and is based on the PC version of the game rather than the Dreamcast release. Still, it’s a pretty good deal if you don’t have a copy of the game on another system.
Also, the other Sonic Xbox 360 game coming up, which requires you to flail around like a goon, was priced today at $49.99, so it’s also a bargain in terms of dignity.
The lack of widescreen annoys me. I mean really, who wants to play the game with those ugly sidebars?
Would it really have been that hard to make it 16:9, Sega? Really?
Blame Backbone, who’ve become Sega’s “let’s lazily port over old games to online services” flogging boy.
I see. Once again I’ll have to depend on the community to hack the everloving **** out of this to bring it up to acceptable standards.
Easy achievements, plus I bet I can get em all in one day.
i’ve this to many people before, stop bangin on about backbone last time i checked they had nothing to do with this, backbone specialize in emulation, this is not emulated, sega just can strech out things such as menu BG’s thats all…
Backbone? Well, they’ve done a horrible job With Marvel Vs. Capcom 2….. I think I’ll just look for the DC version…
