Sonic 4 costs $15?!

Worse than that, it's not even the full game, only the first in many many episodes. And it costs $14.99? Is Sega trying to repeat the deed of Blue Toad Murder Files?

Seriously. There are better games, FULL games for that price on PSN. Even cheaper, just bought Trine for $9.99. Don't waste your money on this one. At the very least, wait for all episodes to be released, and buy the bundle.

Yeah I'm waiting for a future bundle on the Sonic 4 stuff. $15 is a bit steep for that game.

Sonic 4 finally gets released! I don't think I've EVER seen as much media on a single game leading up to release as this one. Will probably have to pick it and Dead Space Ignition up.
