(Tim) - BREAKING NEWS AS WE RECORD... Sonic the Hedgehog looks to be coming to the C64 and maybe out as early as the week before Christmas. However, there is a catch! You will need a C64 / 128 with a 256k RAM Expansion Unit. Should be good for people who have the Ultimate 1541 II or the Ultimate 64. This has been developed by MrSID and details were released today on the Lemon64 Forum. It will be a free download as commercializing it will attract the attentions of Sega.
