The Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing series served as enjoyable racing games that would distract you long enough if you ever got sick of playing Mario Kart. Unfortunately, that's all they can be: a distraction. When you're looking for a great party game to play with your friends, the All-Star Racing games are rarely likely to be brought up. They suffer from slippery controls, questionable game mechanics, and a poor online structure.

Fortunately, SEGA has a chance to make up for all this, as they recently announced a brand new Sonic racing game. The company has confirmed it won't be a sequel to any games they've released, so this is their chance to start over from scratch. But for SEGA to even dream of competing with the big dogs like Mario Kart, there are a few things they'll need to work on.

Way back when PlayStation 3 made its debut in 2006, one of the perks of the console was the fact that you could install Linux on it, effectively allowing it to double as a PC. Sony issued a firmware update to remove this feature four years later, citing security risks as the reason. This led to a class-action lawsuit, with early buyers accusing Sony of false advertising. Thanks to a recent settlement, they'll soon be getting their payout.
