Check out a cut "baby Sonic" scene from Sonic the Hedgehog

The baby blue blur

Sonic the Hedgehog, just like any other movie, as a bunch of scenes that didn't make the final cut. Some of them didn't even get finished completely. That's what we have in the video above, which is an in-production scene that features baby Sonic. Check out the baby blue blur running around Earth in the spot above.

GameStop was accidentally selling Animal Crossing: New Horizons and other first-party Switch titles for 50% off

Whoops!

GameStop's website had a major hiccup earlier today, and it lead to some insane deals on first party Switch games.

We're not quite sure what the cause was, but GameStop's website was selling major first party Switch games for 50% off. Animal Crossing: New Horizons was included in the mix, as were Luigi's Mansion 3, Smash Bros. Ultimate, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and many others. This was obviously a mistake that GameStop scrambled to fix.

The first attempt at a fix ended up bringing GameStop's site offline. Even worse, when the site came back, the deals were still being offered! The site went down a second time, and when it came back everything was set straight again.

Now the real question is, will GameStop honor those 50% off sales? Those who managed to snag the insane offer are keeping a close watch on their inbox to find out.

Japanese retailer believes the games market will revolve around Animal Crossing: New Horizons for quite some time

Total domination

Last week, we shared a report from Japanese retailer GEO about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The game was obviously their best-selling title of the week, but it also broke numerous records that are likely to stand for years to come. GEO has now offered up more commentary on the game's sales, and they see bright future ahead.

According to GEO, Animal Crossing: New Horizons will once again be the best-selling software of the week, which is no surprise. GEO also states that the game is moving Switch Lite units, which goes hand-in-hand with the stock shortages we reported earlier today. The game's immense success is getting all sorts of attention, and it doesn't seem to be dying down at all. That's why GEO expects to see the game topping the charts for months to come, with the whole game industry in Japan revolving around the game.
