Kaz hirai
SCEA's president has said some pretty strange things lately. Namely, in an interview with PSM, Kaz Hirai stated that their getting tired of Microsoft constantly copying everything Sony's been doing. In the same interview he said that games could retail for more than $59.99, but that their was no reason to worry because they certainly wouldn't go for anything over $99.99. So, Microsoft are a bunch of copycats and PS3 games could retail for more than $60.00... Sony's hubris knows no bounds.

Sonic the Hedgehog's birthday is upon us. Fifteen years ago, Sonic debuted on the Sega Genesis, changing platformers and finally giving Sega a suitable mascot. To celebrate, a port of the original game will be released on the Game Boy Advance with a save feature and the Spin Dash move that didn't debut until Sonic 2. In the mean time, Sonic has upcoming games on all the next-gen consoles.
