Sonic Mania (August 15th 2017, Christian Whitehead, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch) - The New Classic

Recommended Posts

Ah man, North America only, that sucks. Hoping SEGA of Europe has something up their sleeve. I wouldn't mind paying $100 but I actually don't own an Xbox or PS4 yet (are they regioned, I think they are) and I don't really game on my PC. As I said hopefully SEGA of Europe is planning something for us

I've never bought anything off of Amazon before. 

I've been reading that they don't charge you until the item ships, is that true? Also, now that I've added it to my cart it says "currently unavailable". Is it sold-out already or it's letting me know it's just not ready yet? I'm confused lol.

 

EDIT: On second thought, I'll just pre-order it from EB Games.

It's neat, but does Amazon ships to South America? Also, I was hoping for a physical copy, not just the download key :/ Maybe there will be ANOTHER Collector's Edition...? Still looks awesome, tho. I might get it in a way or another.

Current FAQ:

Q: I live outside of North America. Can I buy?

A: Amazon ships worldwide, fastest way to tell is add one to checkout then try to checkout. If you get a shipping cost or custom fees, you can get one.

Q: Can I play NA games on my System..?

A:

PC: Most likely yes.

PS4: Redeem the code using a North American account (free to do and piss easy). Download to your system. Play with either that account or your main account. Works 99% of the time. 

Xbox One: Dunno.

A: When do Amazon charge?

Q: Typically on the day or 24 hours before the game is released. 

Q: Will this come to Europe?

A: ... .... To be honest. Yeah something probably will... don't bank on it being this though. The game is going to be a huge hit. They know the thirst is real, just that they're kinda good at disappointing so... meh.

God knows.

Yeah, May 31st is more than likely a random place holder for the release date (anything with 31st as the release date is usually that), but I think it's safe to assume that Sonic Mania will release sometime in May.

Yeah, it's a nice collection, doesn't have all I wanted, but hey it's awesome they are doing one in the first place!

I'm going to wait and see if Europe/UK get a collection. I'd love a cd release of the soundtrack (even it's sold separately).

I'm gonna get Mania on Steam & PS4. What do you think the cost of just the standard version of Mania will be? As much as £30 or more?

European fans should take note that the Collector's Edition appears to purposefully not include Mega Drive OR Genesis on any of the items. The console Sonic is standing on is not branded Genesis or Mega Drive and the SEGA logo is in place where the UK Mega Drive & SEGA logos are. The cartridge is called a "SEGA Cartridge". So it appears that they made it a point to design this with Americas and Europe in mind.

This is a nice thought; though SEGA's response doesn't fill me with hope:

This is the second time you have posted in a non-contributive manner today with a prior post of a video-only post being removed. That and image-only posts are not allowed here so while having these things in your post is fine (and I definitely understand and agree with your point as I think this regional-exclusive thing is stupid as well as totally unfair. Sonic fans are all over the world so why leave some of them out with something like this? Everyone should have the opportunity to possess and enjoy it no matter where they live in the world), it can't be the only thing your posts contain as it doesn't contribute to discussion so please be sure to write at least a sentence to do that. 

As for the topic at hand, I'd figured something was going on due to all of the frequent notifications I was getting this morning as I'm following this topic. Finding out about the Collectors Edition for Sonic Mania was a nice surprise! I'd figured something was going on with the poll on the Sonic Twitter the other day but I honestly didn't put much thought into it as I can't take it seriously majority of the time so I'm pleasantly surprised. I went on and pre-ordered it right away as everything looks awesome which is fitting considering that's exactly what I've thought about Sonic Mania since Day 1 :)

This is payback for the 20th anniversary box.

Doesn't matter. Just stop with regional exclusive bullshit collector's editions. This stupid crap just screws over Sonic collectors in the UK, the same way the Gens one did to Sonic collectors in the US. Just have a limited worldwide release, easy. No need for only allowing one country to get it. I'm saying this as someone who doesn't even get collectors editions of games, but know full well this kind of case just pisses off anyone who wants an easy time collecting them.

So basically, no. Pre-order the NA version or get nothing seems to be the choice. Small hope that fellow EU Sonic fans will get something.

It literally seems to be Generations 20th anniversary CE all over again. I was kinda hoping SEGA wouldn't pull something like this again back in 2011 when I was absolutely upset about Generations CE not coming over here to the U.S., but here we are in the same predicament, but switched!
