Sonic Generations Gets PC Release

It’s been long rumored since the announcement of the game itself, but it’s finally been confirmed that upcoming retro-game-remade Sonic Generations is getting a PC release alongside the console versions.

The listing has popped up on several digital distribution sites, including Direct2Drive and GreenManGaming. Interestingly, it seems the PC release will only cost $30, a $20 drop from the console versions.

The PC release will feature all the levels and amazingness as the console versions, and will also use Steamworks, Steam Cloud Saves and have stereoscopic 3D support for the PC gamers with even more money than your average PC gamer.
