Sonic fans owning Apple TVs will be super excited to hear that multiple Sonic the Hedgehog titles are going to be on the Apple TV starting today! Sonic the Hedgehog is now compatible with the Apple TV, followed on Thursday, March 24th, with Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and finally, with Sonic CD on March 31st.

If you already own these games on your iPhone, iPod, or iPad, you will be able to download them onto your Apple TV for free.

Personally, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 was the first game I ever played. It took finishing the game to be able to play Knuckles, but that isn't the case here! You can play Knuckles from the start as well as Tails. Pulling on the nostalgic strings, the app stays close to the authenticity of the original game.

Pricing for all three games are $2.99 each. The only glitch mentioned so far is the game crashing when you play for too long. Which could be a good or bad thing when you think about it.

Sonic the Hedgehog is available for iPhone, iPod, iPad and Apple TV here.  

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is available for iPhone, iPod, iPad, and on March 24th on Apple TV, here

Sonic CD is available for iPhone, iPod, iPad, and on March 31st on Apple TV, here

Look out Ouya, Google is Developing a Native Android Gaming Device Thu, 27 Jun 2013 22:52:20 -0400 Kazemusha

This just in: Android creator Google is working on a game console based on its mobile platform! Are we surprised? Not really.

We Saw this Coming, Google

Amidst the slew of Android based gaming devices: Ouya, Nvidia SHIELD, and the Gamestick to name a few, it comes as no surprise that Google wants in. Why shouldn't Google make a gaming console based on its mobile platform? They've already put out Google branded tablets, phones, and laptops so why not a gaming console?

Google's decision to get into gaming hardware isn't only justified by the fact that they makes the software so many other companies are using for consoles, they also need to keep up with the competition.

The Apple Factor

For a while now, people have been speculating that an upcoming Apple TV may support gaming. As Apple is Google's main competitor in the mobile market, it makes sense that Google would respond to rumors by confirming development of their own gaming device. So far, Google has a one up on Apple, as the latter has yet to confirm any possible gaming console.

But what about the Indies?

I think it goes without saying that Google getting into the gaming market could take a bite out of the revenue stream that other companies, like Ouya, hope to claim. The search engine pros do have considerable clout in the tech world, and plenty of money to throw around, so it wouldn't be surprising if they managed to dominate the Android console market.

What do you think?

Are you excited for the possibility of an official Google gaming console? Or does this cause you to worry for upstarts like Ouya?

As always,
