Competition: Sonic’s 22nd birthday giveaway

Today at SEGA Nerds we are saying a big Happy 22nd Birthday to Sonic the Hedgehog. This day (June 23rd) way back in 1991 was the day that Sonic the Hedgehog 1 was released on the Mega Drive in Japan.

Since then Sonic has featured in more than 80 titles(!!) from home consoles, to PC titles, handhelds and a number of mobile phone games. It’s certainly been an impressive run for the little blue guy so far. Yes, not all of Sonic’s games have been master pieces, but it’s hard not to tip your hat to SEGA and Sonic – a character that has been on our screens for so long and has remained hugely popular across the world.

Competition time!

As we mentioned on our special Sonic-themed Nerdcast the other day – to help celebrate Sonic’s birthday, we are giving away the Sonic Hits Collection on Steam!

This pack features 14 awesome Sonic titles, plus some add-ons:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Little rules & regs bit:

  • The competition will run for one week, where we will announce the winner fist on our next episode of the Nerdcast.
  • Only one copy of the Sonic Hits Collection is available to giveaway and it cannot be exchanged for any other prize, or monetary sum.
  • The collection pack is only available on Steam and all games listed are only available for PC users (according to Steam).
    – As a result, the winner will either need to have a Steam account, or create an account to receive the pack. The prize will be ‘gifted’ through the Steam service to the winning entrant.

Well I think that’s all! Be sure to check back next week, or listen to our Nerdcast live to find out who the winner is!

Oh… and…

Happy Birthday Sonic!!
