I have a friend who is really upset because the MegaMan Legacy Collection 2, and now Sonic Mania are not letting him play until 11am on August 18th (Their release date)

While on the PS4, both games were playable exactly at midnight on their release dates..

Sonic hasn' released for anything but the PS4. It's odd in the UK it released for both the xbox and Switch at 12.

Oh wells.

Why though?
Why did the PS4 get it 11-12hrs before the XB1?

It just seems odd.

Really? It’s not out for Xbox One yet? I was considering getting on and impulsively purchasing it but now I can’t I guess.

so, considering every other game i checked has it at normal "midnight" release (i say that because midnight releases here are an hour before midnight)

it's most likely when the review embargos get lifted for those titles.

But the reviews are already up, and Sonic is already playable on PS4.

well then sony paid capcom and sega, idfk.

usually it's review embargos, and with a sonic title, it makes sense that that's what it'd be
