    I think if it was just two tracks they would have switched them already. I think the lawsuit basically bans them from using any version of Sonic 3 until royalties are paid.

    The first few minutes is absolutely painful watching this person play.

    Haha, totally agree but worth it none the less.

    I'll never forget swapping my snes with a school friends 'megadrive' for a few days just to play sonic 3 and he'd had a week. I'd never even played it yet took it home and completed the whole game in my first shot. Missing a few chaos emeralds right enough but that was the first and last time i ever played sonic 3! Imo sonic 2 is the daddy of them all!

    You missed playing the lock in games then.

    I admit I love Sonic 2 the most.

    And we care about your opinion because?
    Sonic is a good game, its popularity does not matter, you sound like a silly 12 year old who wants to compare things for the sake of it...

    DUSTINODELLOFFICIAL has uploaded real hardware captures of the prototype music.


    Personally, I prefer the prototype versions of the Carnival Night, Ice Cap, and Launch Base music, over the final/MJ versions.
    I'm also hoping to see more protos in the future.

    Really!? I have a hard time liking them... I guess it just sounds so different I can't separate the final MJ versions to these.

    Yoooo this is incredible. The PC music was the real deal the whole time?

    I understand.
    The MJ versions are good too, but to me, the proto tracks fit with the rest of Sonic 3's music.
    Apparently so!

    Am I the only one who prefers the Nov 3. 1993 Prototype/Sonic & Knuckles Collection Music over the Music that sound like knockoffs of 80's songs such as Ice Cap Zone's "Hard Times" by the Jetzons and Launch Base Zone's "I can't wait" by Nu Shooz?

    I always love it when prototypes are dumped. It's cool to see the development process and i hope more prototypes exist and are found.
