What is Sonic DL?

What is this pecularliar listing in the Playstation Store titled Sonic DL all about? It can be found under PS3 add-ons. Let’s do a little speculation, shall we?

– The release date is 13/10/2010, the same day Sonic 4 Episode 1 is released on the PAL Playstation Store
– The image is the Project Needlemouse teaser image which probably means this is related to Sonic 4
– Because it was listed on 13/10/2010 makes me think that this is probably related to Sonic 4 Episode 1 and not Episode 2
– This could be a temporary listing for Sonic 4 Episode 1 DLC that was never taken down
– It could be that no DLC was ever planned and this is a temporary holding for Sonic 4 Episode 1
– Could the ‘DL’ stand for ‘DownLoad’? Was this the working title for Sonic 4 Episode 1?

What do you guys think?

  1. This listing has, despite the date on it, been around for ages. It was simply a placeholder for the Sonic 4 segment.
    As for it being in add-ons, let’s see it this way-each episode is pretty much adding on to the story of Ep.1 and so forth.
    I’d just think of it as a placeholder until Dimps set up the Sonic 4 section, nothing more.
    Or maybe perhaps it was a forerunner to the Sonic section in franchises, given that obviously consists of Sonic Downloadable bits and bobs.
