    Footage of what appears to be an unreleased Sonic hoverboarding game for the original Xbox has found its way onto the web.

    As reported by Game Informer, YouTube user ProtonX3 discovered the code, labelled Sonic Extreme, on an Xbox development unit.

    There's no indication as to why the game never saw the light of day, but you can take a look at the footage below and find out what you missed out on.

    Don't confuse it with the similarly ill-fated Sonic X-treme - a 3D platformer planned for first the Mega Drive and then the SEGA Saturn before the plug was pulled in 1997.

    Source

    There's a video at the source and quite a few other videos on Youtube.

    Thank god this never got released, the last thing we need is yet another shitty Sonic spin off.

    It looks very mediocre and generic. I mean, other than Sonic being there, there was nothing that really would make a consumer go to that instead of SSX Tricky or the Tony Hawk game of that time.

    Wow looking at the trailer, my impressions:-

    Now that hover boarding really is SONIC SPEED -_-

    Even turtles move faster than that, maybe I'm exaggerating by this sentence but w/e [​IMG]

    Good thing it's cancelled.

    I don`t see this as cancelled... It just evolved to Sonic Riders, which imo was quite good if someone likes these kind of games.

    I agree. This build is obviously an incredibly early version of Sonic Riders, so I don't really see this as cancelled, more like it just fleshed out and given a name change.

    What was that Sonic game on the Gamecube many, many years ago? I think it was called Sonic Riders. It was a pretty good game IMO. Kinda miss it.

    If you mean this footage, they said that it was for the original Xbox, even though it's been many years, it may have been just leaked recently.

    What was with the "NOOOOOOOOOOO" voice clip? It sounds off.

    I do like how it uses voice clips from before the Sonic X VA's. Not that they were bad or anything...

    Sonic Adventure 2 music was the only thing worth even watching that video for 5 seconds.
