SEGA Is Forcing You To Buy Sonic Origins

It seems as though SEGA has been rethinking its relationship with the blue blur. As a franchise, Sonic The Hedgehog is obviously iconic. It's mostly thanks to its earlier titles, but even so, developers have always tried to push the series forward, with varying results.

For the most part, it seemed that the teams behind Sonic himself were much more focussed on the future than the past - that was, of course, until Sonic Mania. The throwback title was an incredible success and proved that fans still want more of that classic Sonic action. This is probably why the remaster pack of Sonic Origins is on the way too. But it seems like they're a little too keen for you to pick up the game.

Is SEGA Delisting Classic Sonic Games?

SEGA Is Forcing You To Buy Sonic Origins

SEGA seems a little trigger-happy with the hedgehog's past, as it looks like it is gearing up to strip players of the classic titles they're remaking.

The company is now officially planning to gut the classic games from digital storefronts a month before the game releases - seemingly in order to drive traffic to the new remaster pack.

That means that Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic CD won't be available to purchase on the Steam and Xbox stores. It's hugely frustrating considering the games' current pricing at $5, while the remaster pack comes in at $40 at its cheapest.

 

If you already own digital versions of the game you should be good - but by the time the games are delisted, you'll never be able to download them from these storefronts again.

When Are The Sonic Games Getting Delisted?

The Sonic the Hedgehog titles are being stripped from the digital storefronts on May 20, which is about a month before the release of Sonic Origins, so thankfully you'll still have time to bag them before they're gone. Otherwise, you're going to be stuck having to buy the remaster pack if you want to experience classic Sonic games again.

Though Sonic Origins looks to be a great way to experience the Sonic titles of old, it's still a little slimy that SEGA is pulling Sonic from the internet. We hope you really like that hedgehog, because eventually, you're going to have to pay a very tidy sum for him.
