Sorry Sonic fans but your summer just got longer: Sonic the Hedgehog 4 has been delayed into the second half of 2010.
Sega's holding back Sonic 4 in order to "tune, balance, and maintain the kind of polish that an important title like this demands".

On a brighter note, the mystery platform that was teased on the official website has been revealed to be the iPhone and iPod Touch. It's perfect for those who don't have access to a Wii, 360, or PS3, not to mention it's also rare to see one of Sonic's home console adventures show up on a portable.
