A demo for Sonic Generations will arrive on Xbox Live Arcade and PSN tomorrow (June 23rd), letting players sample the 'classic style' of the game's first act, Green Hill Zone, reports Andriasang

The demo is only available for a short time, however. After 20 days it will be removed from both stores, with the demo expiring.

This poses a problem for PS3 owners in Japan, where PSN has still not been restored. If the problem hasn't been remedied by July 12, the day the demo expires, Japanese PS3 owners will not get the opportunity to play it. Of course, SEGA could extend the life of the demo in Japan.

Sonic Generations celebrates 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog, letting players take control of classic 1991 Sonic as well as the lanky modern day hero he has become. SEGA has promised it'll deliver the 'definitive gaming experience' to Sonic fans old and new.

Sonic Generations releases November 11 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Had a quick play - it's one level of brilliant fun! It appeared a little staccato when moving quickly and there seemed to be a very slight lag on jumping, but I'm sure they'll iron all that out with that polish I hear people talk about. Unlike Sonic 4 this really feels like an updated Sonic from the MegaDrive days. Colour me happy!

Couldn't care less and that's Team Sonic's fault for dragging up Sonic's battered blue corpse for countless crap sequels to a game that's 20 years old and holds no place in modern gaming. Nostalgia is fine, but until they develop a Sonic game that reflects 2011 as the original did 1991 I'm not bothered.

I'm not saying this isn't that game, but until reviews are posted and several people start singing it's praises I remain cold towards Sonic titles.

Same. I'm excited but expecting disappointment as I've been disappointed with the Sonic games for a few years now :(

Talking of excitement... I couldn't be any more for this game. It really does look like a proper Sonic game. Even though it does look amazing I'm still fully expecting disappointment, shame really.
