I've noticed that pretty much every main sonic game is available on the PS Store and that, Sonic (2006), unleashed and generations are available on disk

I was just wondering if there was anyway to get sonic 3 and knuckles on PS3

If you buy/download both Sonic 3 & Sonic & Knuckes & then you get the options to play as knuckles in Sonic 3.
If You also get Sonic 2 you can play as Knuckles in that & if you get the original your able to play the Blue sphere levels.

From memory there listed in a bonus section when you bring up the select button menu.


That doesn't work on the Mega Drive ultimate collection disc, ONly if you buy each game seperately of the store.

All the Sonic games are on it but you can't get the extra stuff you would get when combining the cartridges, There only available when you buy them off the store in 'Sega Vintage Collection' form.

Just went back & checked & to get Knuckes in Sonic 2/3 & the blue spheres, You have to get each game & then on the S&K menu there's a bonus content option allowing you to select to play as Knuckles in Sonic 2 & 3 as well as to play the blue sphere levels.

That is how it works on 360 but neither game is actually on the PS Store

And they wont appear on the PSN anytime soon, SEGA NA have taken a different approach and have been remastering the games and giving them the Sonic CD treatment (Widescreen, extra options, not emulated, etc), and the next one out is Sonic 1 (already available on iOS and Android) at some point, followed by Sonic 2 and eventually Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

'' The port features widescreen graphics, a time attack mode and the unlockable option to play as Tails or Knuckles.''

Is there any news on when the remaster will hit the PSN, or is it just sometime in the future, those extra features really interest me

Plus it would be worth the wait for the others if the first is good

No time is given, Taxman has said that they decided to release the game on iOS and Android first because they can patch the game for free, so this time, they can tweak the game freely anytime a bug is found by the obsessed Sonic fan community, and when they feel it is ready, then throw it out on PSN, XBLA, Steam, etc.

Been playing Sonic 1 on Android for a while now, the attention to detail is great, so I can't wait to see how Sonic 2 and 3&K turn out, the improved soundtrack alone is worth it, they re-sampled all the PCM channels in higher quality and fixed the audio so it doesn't drop out anymore, so it sounds pretty damn good.
