I used to think that was some super high tech kit when you had to put an extra megadrive cartridge on for knuckles. :laugh:

No Sonic 3, no dice.

Also, apparently Knuckles will come with sonic 2. I hope they do the same with sonic 3.

Alternatively you could pick up all 6 of these, plus 43 others, for £9.99 if you buy the Sega Megadrive Ultimate Collection for the PS3 from Amazon. You'll be missing out on multiplayer leaderboards and individual trophies per game but you'll get a host of extras like video interviews, unlockable art, game histories and so on.
