Regular users of the PSN will have to pay $4.99 for both, and the same price for any number of other Sega titles also being rolled out the next several months on the system. This, according to Sony’s announcement today that the Sega Genesis Collection will be released incrementally through the Spring and Summer months.
But Sonic 1 and 2 users will be the first released, and subscribers to the Playstation Plus series can download them for free, first. Sonic 1 will be available free of charge for users beginning March 1st through April 5th. Sonic 2 will soon follow, available from April 5 through May 3. Release dates for commoners are March 29th and April 19th, respectively.
Other titles to be rolled out under the collection include Streets of Rage 2, Comix Zone, and Golden Axe 2.
