Moving up the grid

Sega has confirmed that Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed will launch alongside Nintendo's new Wii U console in the UK on 30th November.

This means that the Wii U edition is lagging behind the PS3, Xbox 360, 3DS and Vita versions by two weeks, but prospective Wii U buyers won't mind - it just means yet another high-profile title has been added to the already impressive UK launch day starting grid.

UK readers - has Sonic just become a day-one purchase for you?
