I'm wondering if those screen images are simulated. You'd think that at lease one of the two monitors would have a scan line visible, but it was a professional photographer, so I wouldn't count it out on that alone. Keep in mind, the majority of gamers back then were much younger than they are now, so magazines seldom checked their facts. If you really want to know, surely there's an author listed for the article, you could try contacting them. Sure, it's been a while, but I doubt that someone would forget whether a game did or did not exist (I'm not convinced there ever was a Sonic 2 CD). And I can't ell exactly, but I think that sprite of Sonic is from the Sonic CD save screen. Also, I don't recognize the Zone from the picture, but my knowledge of Sonic is hardly encyclopedic. Does anyone recognize the zone from the picture?
