Great idea on Sega's part. I remember when I first found out about SOS' exclusivity to London, I threw my very first e-tantrum on the Blognik comments complaining about how SOA never did anything like that. However, I happen to live on the east coast, so I don't think I'll be able to make it to this one. I wish Sega would rotate the venues to different geographic locations so that Sonic fans living in different parts of the country can have a go.

Relevant for Everyone Not Near L.A.

SEGA® Corporation is proud to announce that Sonic the Hedgehog will celebrate his 20th anniversary on June 23, 2011.

From the first day of the release of Sonic The Hedgehog™ back in 1991 on the SEGA Genesis™ console, Sonic the Hedgehog quickly became a popular gaming icon due to his super fast speed and his cool, edgy character. In the twenty years that the video games have been available, Sonic the Hedgehog has notched up over 70 million units sold worldwide.

As well as videogames, SEGA’s iconic blue hedgehog has enjoyed huge success in areas such as comics, apparel and toys and even starred in his own animated series.

SEGA Corporation will be celebrating this special year in style with events around the world, details of which will be released throughout the 20th anniversary year of 2011.

There's hope.

Man, I'd love to go, but a) it's on a school day and B) it's in CA. Maybe if there's some kind of event in Seattle, I could go, but idk if SEGA's gonna do that.

If your hobbies include dressing up as furry woodland creatures, I'm ok with your attitude towards me!

In fact, I encourage it!

I don't particually get involved with fancy dress (as we used to call it before cosplay took over) as other people do. The only time I've done it is for my Uni Christmas party... however chances are I would have looked like the odd one out if I turned up to a costume party wearing 'normal clothes.'

But I don't have as mornic views to say ARGH! That person is dressed up as Doctor Robotnik and that person is dressed as Sonic! I must away!

Exactly why would you "Stay the hell away from the event" if people would be cosplaying there?

They're wearing a costume at an event that invites people to wear costumes. But you're going to stay away from it because people will wear costumes? What exactly is YOUR problem with it?

As far as I understand it, SEGA of America is very very very keen to not step on the toes of what we're doing over here with Summer of Sonic. A more appropriate comparison could be the UK Community Days that ArchAngelUK established a few years ago when he began working at SEGA Europe. The UK Community Days weren't much longer than a couple hours long in a venue some place, play a bit of the latest Sonic game, go out and hang in a pub for the rest of the day/night. This seems to be an attempt at bringing this Stateside, only in the evening and in a club.

I'm looking forward to it - not least because I'm interested to see how SoA does it and to see from a community perspective if it checks all the boxes. I'll also get to hang with some of my closest US chums as well - this will actually be my first ever trip to America, so I'm really stoked that I'm being given the opportunity to see this unfold. Plus I'll probably get a little bit razzed with SEGA peeps later in the evening afterwards, that'll be fun!
