    That's right! Want to play Sonic the Hedgehog for the xbox360 a little early?

    Go to the xBox360 Marketplace and download the demo for free. It's 350 MB, and I'm downloading it right now, I'll be sure to let you know if it was worth it :)

    Ah, I love my 360.

    Downloading right now. =D

    EDIT: Wow. This is fun to play, but the demo was wayyyyyy too short. Though, I only played as Sonic. =) Which I assume is a good thing...

    Screens/vids please, and have someone mirror the demo to like Sonic CulT or something... I bet we can find some beta goodies in this (lame ass) fucker.

    Last time I checked, mirroring the demo is impossible, cause you can't get it off the xbox360 HD yet. As for videos, I have a crappy camera and it doesn't take more than 20 seconds of video.

    We all know someone from CulT is going to find a way to get it onto their computer, hopefully in a form that people using PCs can play it in.

    Happy X06, I'm going to go check the Japanese official site.

    Yeah, they'll find a way as soon as TeamXecutor releases their next project. It's a USB adapter for the Xbox console and HD.

    But that's not for a few more weeks. But yes, they'll buy the tool and do it when it's available, thanks to TeamXecutor.

    As for a time when it will be released for the PC, it's going to take the XNA framework from microsoft to do it. Of course, that makes things a little difficult, because there has to be some conversion from the xbox propietary code to windows compatible, which btw, is what the XNA framework is all about, portability. However, it only is super easy if you have the source code. Disassembling the executable file, which is encrypted by microsoft with a key that ONLY they know (for the time being), is deemed impossible as of now, even though people are able to flash the 360's CD firmware view it on a comptuer. People are working hard to crack the xbox360, and until they do a lot more work, Sonic won't be coming to the PC anytime soon.

    Cool. :) But yeah, the whole Eagle thing reminds me of Super Mario 64. If anyone finds a way to get the music, please zip that bad-boy up. But yeah, the sound effects could get annoying, or it could just be the quality of the video. Either way, this would be one reason why I'd buy a 360.

    I liked it when sonic ran a little slower, like in the other demos with the commentary :). Still looks good though.

    Is it true that simply jumping is no longer enough to kill an enemy?

    I will continue to be pissed until Sega fixes the damn camera...the story looks great, the graphics look great, the music is (mostly) good, and even the voice acting is passable. But the camera has a bigger influence on gameplay than anything else, and it's still just as broken as it was last gen.

    I am honestly in awe regarding how un-Sonic-y the music is. SA2's heavy rock and rap was godly compared to this. "Sir, you got your Final Fantasy in my Sonic". It sounds like nothing except a flawed attempt to sound medievil and epic. And way to ruin the level complete theme, holy crap.

    Everything else looks great.

    I probably should get back to work on my site someday...
    Does anyone have a rip of this music so I can hear how bad it is?
