Sonic CD to XBLA?

by

Major Nelson delivered some interesting news today if you were attentive enough. While announcing the Microsoft PAX lineup for this week, Sonic CD managed to squeeze in on the list of XBLA titles. Sonic CD is widely considered the best Sonic the Hedgehog game ever made and would be quite the coup for Microsoft if it were exclusive to XBLA.

Considering the opportunity to play the game has been scarce with the Sega CD long gone and very few ports to newer systems, this is very exciting for fans of the blue blur.

The story has not yet been confirmed by Sega or Major Nelson, however being on his blog you can expect it’s only a matter of time. More as it become available.
