Make sure your bladder is empty for this next bit.
The game will be priced at $29.99 / €24.99 / £20. RETAIL.
We reported a few days ago that GameStop were accepting pre-orders for the game, but this just blows my mind. Twenty quid for a retail copy? Seriously? Platinum Games, I love you.
Sega have reduced the prices of the of Sonic Adventure and its DLC (XBLA, PSN) and Happy Tree Friends (XBLA). The best thing about this news is that we’re not talking about a sale here, this is a permanent price drop. The new prices and reductions are as follows:
Sonic Adventure: $4.99 (price reduced by 50%)
Sonic Adventure DLC: $2.99 (price reduced by 40%)
Sonic Adventure: 400 Microsoft Points (price reduced by 50%)
Sonic Adventure DLC: 200 Microsoft Points (price reduced by 50%)
Happy Tree Friends: 400 Microsoft Points (price reduced by 50%)
My speculation is that Sega are attempting to lure in the last few Sega fans that haven’t yet bitten the bullet and bought the HD release of Sonic Adventure to warm them to the idea of buying the oncoming batch of HD releases, i.e. Sonic Adventure 2 and NiGHTS Into Dreams. I am not a fan of Sonic Adventure, and I do not agree with Sega’s decision to make the DX content from the GameCube version paid DLC, so this deal still isn’t enough to lure me in. But what about you guys? Any readers that have yet to buy Sonic Adventure, or Happy Tree Friends for that matter, and are now considering it, drop us a comment below!

What more can I say? Sega’s highly anticipated HD rerelease of their Dreamcast classic, Jet Set Radio, has been officially priced by Sega of America via their blog. PS3 and PS Vita owners as well as Steam users will be able to nab the groovy game for $9.99, while the XBLA version will be 800 Microsoft Points. In this humble writer’s opinion, that’s a very fair price indeed!
Playstation Plus members will be able to purchase the game on Sep 11th, a full week before it will be available for regular PS3 users on Sep 18th, which is one day before the sub-human XBLA and Steam using scum like myself will have access to it on Sep 19th. At least that’s not as bad as PS Vita owners whom will have a long wait till Oct 16th to buy the game.
Of course, if you’re anything like me and not American you will be wondering how much this game will cost in different territories, and for mobile devices. Unfortunately Sega have yet to release that info, although I can’t see them being much more expensive than the prices above.
And if you have a Jet Set Itch that you need to Jet Set Scratch sooner rather than later, then check out our competition where you can win a hip and cool Jet Set Radio hoodie!
