Where as the white digital jukebox could only previously muster gems like Brick, Parachute and Solitaire, it now boasts Sonic the Hedgehog amongst its growing library.
For a bargain price of £4, iPod Classic owners and owners of fifth generation iPods, can download the little blue hedgehog from iTunes.
It’s probably the least likely pocket-gaming device we could have thought of five years ago, but now it packs a decent 16-bit-like punch. And we’re told Sonic is only the start of things to come.
Sonic the Hedgehog isn’t available for the iPhone owners, sorry. Don’t worry though; a retro games app is bound to spring up soon enough.
