This weekend SEGA announced that the Xbox 360 version of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing will feature you… well your avatar, as Microsoft continue to press home the advantage of having the Avatar system integrated with the OS.

This exclusive addition to the game will allow your Avatar to hop in to its “Avacar” and race along side Sonic and the other characters from the SEGA world. What you may not know is that each character has a unique special move called ‘All-Star’ move, when you’re racing as your Avatar the All-Star move sees Avatars from your friends list pick your vehicle up and race ahead.


The exclusive features for the 360 don’t stop there, because Rare’s Banjo and Kazooie will also be starring in the game along with their own special All-star moves. there is no word yet on whether the PlayStation3 version will have special features when the game is released in early 2010, in the mean-time can read TheSixthAxis’ early impressions of the title here.
