To be fair it all sounds good, if its an update for free (I've got all the Sonic games) thats great, and to be fair if it wasnt an update i would probably pay anyway (hell its Sonic !). Nice to see Sega redoing these.

Wish Sega would release a Sega app with lots of older games in it (Afterburner/Ecco etc). They've done that for various machines, just wish they would do one for iOS just like Bally Midway have done (well) and Namco (not so well !)

Ah, I didn't know Sonic CD was a complete port. I always thought he'd just managed to work some miraculous wizardry into an emulator on iOS. Good to know.

The one downside to porting rather than emulating is that it'll take longer for individual games to make it over, but it's not as though Sega was being generous with their emulator library anyway so I guess we're not missing much.

Yeah, I'm good as far as Sonic games go at this point. Been there, done that. Not much baby changes are gonna make me bite on that anymore. Just trying to keep squeezing a little more out of it, I guess... Meh....

SEGA Rally Championship 1995.

Get it ported, SEGA ... I'd pay handsomely for it.

I'm wondering if this might happen now. I said it in jest but now I think its a possibility.

Just read on the SonicRetro forums that the original Sonic port by SEGA has been removed from the App Store.

Looks like the new version is coming very soon.
