This is on sale today in Europe but weirdly in the UK this is only available through Argos.

Can't wait to play Power Drift again. 8)
Is it a single download of the entire bundle, or spearate games?
I think if you can't download individual games I'd rather have the cartridge.
A bit annoying as I was saving one last scratchcard to get a download of Power Drift.

And thank you from me too!

I own all of the games digitally except Powerdrift... but I can't wait to see if they release it on it's own and this physical release is going to be stupidly rare by the look of it!

I'm off to Argos now to pick up my reservation!!! :D

Also thanks from me (and my mate), awaiting an update to see if his dad managed to purchase us both copies while I was at work.

Strange how there was nothing then suddenly it sneaks out to no fanfare! I think I'll order it to be delivered as I won't get out of work tomorrow before the closest Argos shuts.

EDIT: Just ordered it. Yay :)

Yeah it's really odd, no promotion, Argos exclusive and Power Drift & Sonic aside most of the more desirable games* are all missing. It's almost as if they don't want it to succeed.

The box art is really substandard too, it's like one of those rubbish no budget spectrum covers from back in the day that we all laugh at.

Will still probably pick it up for Power Drift.

*(Sonic 2, Streets of Rage 1&2, Golden Axe(did they do one for that? I can't remember) Shinobi 3, Thunderforce 3 etc.)

Well, not too weird, they did for a time have the Villager amiibo as an exclusive after the insane amounts it was going for, and I think the Blue XBONE S might be an Argos exclusive as well.

Even so, this is probably not going to do the 3rd collection any favors of coming here if this one's a store exclusive with barely much promotion. Still, I think they still sell new copies of Sonic Classic Collection on the DS to this day, so you never know....

It's a single download of all 9 games so you can't get Power Drift by itself unfortunately. I only have Galaxy Force so the package is still a good deal for me.

My 2 local Argos stores ate out of stock for 5 days so had to order from ebay. Looking forward to Thunder Blade and Power Drift.

I was kind of pumped for this originally, but I think I'd only really be interested in Power Drift now....which I can sort of already play on MAME, minus the cool 3D. Maybe if it drops to a tenner in future...

Got mine today and had a quick go on Powerdrift. Nice game but I will need more practice since I kept slamming into the walls/columns on the first circuit :oops: . Also, is there any reason why the game automatically puts your car in 'high' gear on the start line?!? I kept forgetting and having really sluggish getaways as a result!
