Sonic Turns 20 Today
Posted on Thursday, June 23 @ 13:00:48 Eastern by Josh_Laddin
Today marks a milestone anniversary for the blue blur, exactly 20 years after the original Sonic The Hedgehog debuted on the Sega Genesis to run right up to and past the Super NES [NSFW if your boss has a stick up their ass]. While Sega may have faded out of the hardware market, Sonic himself has never looked back and is still going strong (except when he turns into that damned Werehog). At 20 years, Sonic has lived about 6 - 7 times longer than the average hedgehog's lifespan (it's true, I googled it).
Sega's already been celebrating for a while, most notably with their Sonic Boom party during E3 where the majority of GR got royally wasted and generally lowered the respectability of the whole event just by being there. Later this year Sega is releasing Sonic Generations, the iconic hedgehog's new game that bridges the gap between old, speedy Sonic and new Sonic (who is more likely on speed). Sega's made the Sonic Generations demo available on Xbox Live and PSN for a mere 20 days, so if you want to check it out download it now!
