E3: Sonic, Golden Axe on XBLA!

SEGA gems available now.

Sonic the Hedgehog and Golden Axe are now available for download on Xbox Live Arcade for 400 points each, Microsoft announced at its E3 press briefing tonight, which is good news in anyone's language. Besides Swahili, probably.

The confirmation came on the back of news of a whole host of new games for the service, including Bomberman Live, Undertow and Hexic 2. And the Live Arcade tally is expected to rise to 100 by the end of the year.

Microsoft's corporate vice president of global marketing, Jeff Bell, also confirmed Track and Field as an upcoming XBLA game. And, as we all know that Track and Field is the best game in the world, this is good news in Swahili as well as every other language.

While we wait, though, SEGA games of yesterday will suffice. What's the world record time for the first level again?
