UPDATE: The Humble Bundle Store have joined in the pre-order fun as well at the same price, which means if you're a monthly subscriber you'll get an additional 10% off.

Pre-orders have gone live over on Steam, with the usual 10% discount thrown in for those who want to secure an early copy. I really hope this ends up being the Sonic game we've been waiting for, as previews have been generally optimistic so far saying it's the old-school-like experience we fondly remember.

Seriously, I'm crossing everything.

    Genuinely can't wait for this. I've got the collector's edition pre-ordered on Amazon for Xbox One.

    Happy days, heated

    It'll be interesting to see christian whitehead studios creating a brand new sonic game, they've done great things with the android remakes
    Wanting this to be on pre order for the ps4. Ive been checking for weeks and I cant find it online. This is one game I am hyped for.
    Seems like a great game to get on the Switch for a bit of portable Sonic think i'll hold out
    pre-order? Cold
    Really excited to see how this turns out. Really hoping this can be a great new start for Sonic. The game looks absolutely spot on for 16 bit Sonic, just hope they have nailed the gameplay as well.

    Heated deal, really impressed the price is so low, they could have probably got away with charging more considering the hype this is generating and I was fearing the worst with the crazy price the special edition is going for on console (£80 on Amazon last time I looked!) but £13.49 is really reasonable.

    The only thing that gives me a tiny bit of pause for thought is that Sonic has always been a console game at heart and a console version would feel more true to the originals, that said as Sega sadly seem out of the hardware business for good I guess no platform can claim to be the true home of the hedgehog...

    I can't see how not playing it on a console makes any difference. Anyway I played this at EGX last year and the gameplay is that mega drive sonic you know and love, the physics are spot on.
    How much??? I was hoping for a £9.99 price tag
    Thanks for the heads up, cheaper then Xbox One/PS4 pre order so have some heat!

    £15.99 for consoles mate. Probably best to bring that price down with some CDKeys credit. [PS4] [Xbox One]
    I'm going to wait on this one. I've got too many dodgy sonic games. Still got to play generations and sonic world.
    I LOVE Sonic so getting this now
    I will be getting this day 1 on switch. Seems absolutely perfect for that console, and I do love some retro sonic games... Sonic 2 is still my favourite game of all time!

    FWIW, Sonic 3 was £49.99 - back then, too - when I got it for Christmas. Still worth every penny.
    Thanks, think I get the Switch version first.

    10% discount for pre-ordering = deal = hot, as 10% cheaper than its supposed to be.

    Just got a press release email from Sega. Release date is August 15th and they're also doing the collectors edition for the Nintendo Switch.

    Most of that original £49.99 was the cost of manufacturing the cartridge, also you can't sell on your digital purchase when finished with the game.
    It's looking great so far, can't wait to play it. Hopefully it's a great success for the devs too as we've been begging Sega to release a classic Sonic game for years!
    Now this will be interesting once they announce the switch price. I dont want any special edition rubbish just the base game for the base price. However i get the feeling this is going to be another of those £35 games.
