Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed...!

Recommended Posts

It's going to have to be the 360 version for me, partly because it's the only platform I have that it's being released on and partly because that's where all the good online multiplayer action is going to be.

I'm getting it on PS3, Vita, 3DS and PC. Maybe the 360 version in the future but I don't want to give Microsoft my cash to play online at the moment as i'm more on my PS3 nowadays. Wii U version I probably will if I deside to get the console.

All the other consoles also have online play.

PC will have solid online play but there is a substantial lack of PC gamers who would play this game online regularly compared to Xbox Live.

PSN will have online play, yes, but as someone who's played both I can safely say XBL is superior because it has far less lag and is pretty much committed in every aspect of its design towards playing online. It's truly a premium service.

As for the Wii U... we have no idea. We don't know if that version will support online play or if the new "Nintendo Network" is worth a damn. I can't say there's any reason to be optimistic after seeing Nintendo's previous terrible attempts at online play. So I'd say he's right, XBL is kind of a mecca for this sort of thing. I prefer PC these days, though.

I'm getting it for the 360. There are really only two things that will make me get another copy of the game. Main thing being a really cool exclusive character, other thing being if I really wanted another title for the Wii U if I get that system. (Plus the Wii-U exclusive features make that a bit more appealing...)

As someone who has the classic Sonic games among many consoles I won't be questioning anyone who wants to buy multiple copies of this game. :P

360 for sure, already got it pre-ordered. 3DS, if I buy it it'll be a little later after release. Unless it has cool exclusives. Really, I'm hoping to get a review copy from SEGA for the SEGAbits review. As for iOS, if its happening, I'll day 1 that.

got 360 on pre-order too, waiting for bonus edition 3DS listing on Play.com so it all comes in the same package, or a place that does them both.

any one know a supplier who's got both up for pre-order and free shipping to UK?

Play.com has both:

EDIT: DERP! You wanted the 3DS Bonus Edition...lol, well fail on my part.

PS3 version for me. Thats where I got the original, so unless the WiiU version blows all the others away, then that's where my money will be headed for this go round. I might get one of the handhelds too, but I'll take a wait and see for those.

Nowhere in the UK has the 3DS LE up for order yet. Also, pretty much everywhere has free shipping.

Dreadknux has posted a new preview at SPOnG of the PS3 and Wii U versions.

Blazed through that preview and um.... yeah. The Wii U is still that far behind the other consoles? That's really sad considering that the game and console are going to be release later this year. As for the PS3 version, very nice. Now I'm not sure if I want to pick it up on ps3 or 360.

Yeah, thanks Dread :)

I appreciate the kind words about the rest of the game, but I suspect someone didn't do a thorough job of explaining what you we're seeing on WiiU :P

I know the build was an old one (done around GamesCom) and it's way improved since then. Relax folks, when you see WIP code, you will see issues we're busily battling against and winning!

He says the that graphics and lighting are "absolutely stunning on the PS3"...hopefully this will be the case for the 360 version. What I'm saying is that I hope that the 360 version will not have console specific issues in its version.

They're the same across the board, 360 and WiiU included...! You'll have to take my word for it for the moment mind :P

Yeah.. but wasn't there another interview where you said that the textures will look better on the Wii U due to more RAM [less compression]?

Yup. What I'm getting at here is that none of them are *inferior* to each other. Dread may have seen an old build with frame-tears and performance issues, but that's no longer the case.

WiiU has some advantages over others, but then so do PS3 and 360. Each console is different, and each does things in a different way. Our challenge has to make them look equally shiny regardless of CPU, GPU, Bus Bandwidths and memory differences. That's not as simple as it may appear :)
