SEGA has confirmed that Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II will be super-spinning onto the PlayStation Network next month, with a wee dose of additional content for anyone who's already got Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I.

It's called Episode Metal Lock-On and features Metal Sonic in an unlockable chapter in which you get to play as the mechanical hedgehog. Episode Metal Lock-On is exclusive to owners of both Sonic 4 episodes and includes four acts that bridge the gap between Sonic CD and Sonic 4, exploring the origins of Sonic's other nemesis.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode II will be coming to the PlayStation Store on May 15th in North America for $14.99 and on May 16th in Europe for £9.99.

As much as I'm excited for this, I still don't understand why it's $14.99 when it's not even that big of a game. I'm still buying it, but I probably won't be the only one who questions this. I think selling it between $4.99 and $9.99 is a reasonable price.

£10 is far too expensive especially after the dissapointment of episode 1

This is episodic gaming done wrong. Episode 1 came out in October 2010! A year and a half ago! And that was $15 if I remember right. And now, after so much waiting, episode 2 is also $15? So that's $30 so far. Is episode 3 going to come out in October 2013 and cost ANOTHER $15?

TellTale Games still seems to be the only company who knows how to do episodic gaming releases correctly. You pay one fixed price (usually $30 or $35) and that gets you anywhere from 4-6 episodes depending on the game. And the episodes come out MONTHLY! Not a year and a half between each one.

There's going to be no Episode III, SEGA confirmed that. So, this is it.

That said, I'll be waiting for a price drop or bundle with Episode I. I missed it when it went on sale earlier last year, but $15 for a downloadable game, unless its of Trine quality or as content filled as Stranger's Wrath, is too rich for my blood.

If Sonic 4: Episode I/II, or more recent games like I Am Alive were $6-10 bucks, it would be a no brainer to buy and download. But $15 is ridiculous.

$14.99.................
I'll pass. I'll wait for a sale as I did the same thing with EP.1 when it was $7+ for plus members.
