Sonic the Hedgehog 2 coming to PS Plus next week

Get it earlier than everyone else, and for free

Sony has just issued the latest details about what's in store for PlayStation Plus subscribers, and among the discounts and specials, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be available as a free download. Regular PS3 users will have to wait longer for their chance to get it, and, of course, won't get it for free.

It's part of Sega's continuing Genesis Collection rollout on the PS3, bringing classic first-party titles from the publisher's old-school console. PlayStation Plus users first got their hands on Sonic the Hedgehog earlier this year.

All of the Genesis Collection titles are and will be free for Plus subscribers - Sonic 2 goes live for the premium PSN service on April 5.

Other features coming to PS Plus in April include the release of PSN mini game Duael Invaders, a free Yakuza 4 dynamic theme, and early access to the Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds avatar DLC bundle. That will be available April 12.

And if you're looking for a good deal, Stardone and Hamsterball with both go on sale April 5, while new PSN game Dungeon Hunter will be available April 12 for $9.74, a 25% discount from the regular price.
