Come to think of it, Sega have been making some shitty games since 2002. I hope it’s Microsoft that buys them and burns them to the ground Like they did with Rare.

Because I’d rather pay $20-50 for the next shitty sonic game, than $89 for that same shitty sonic game where the price will stay for the next 8 years.

In all seriousness though, They’ve put out some great games on all the rivals consoles. And Microsoft would be less of a stick in the mud about Multiplatform.
As long as it’s not Sony, I can live with it.

But I totally see the name becoming Like Atari sadly. Someone will buy it and use it to sell the actual fucking garbage they want to churn out.
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

Could be worse. It could become like Intellivision.

Sega wants to release more Atlus ports, remasters, and remakes

Persona 4 Golden success was 'far beyond expectations.'

Sega wants to release more Atlus catalog titles across various platforms following the success of the PC port of Persona 4 Golden, Sega Sammy president and CEO Haruki Satomi said during Sega’s financial results briefing on November 6.

“As for Steam, while we haven’t been actively releasing Atlus titles on PC, we felt that there was much potential there and put out a direct port of Persona 4 Golden for PC, and the user response was far beyond our expectations,” Satomi said. “That being said, we hope to release Atlus catalog titles across various platforms, whether as direct ports or in the form of remasters or remakes.”

The PC version of Persona 4 Golden launched via Steam on June 13.

I still think that had Sega of Japan relinquished more control over to Sega of America, they would've been in a much better scenario. Nakayama was scared of the freaking Atari Jaguar, and pushed out the aborted-at-launch 32X. Then there's the whole Saturn mess, and then burning bridges with EA and 3DFX over the Dreamcast.

Sega should've knocked it out of the park by being a third-party developer, but they were so broke after the nineties that only a miracle would've elevated them up to the same financial stature as Capcom. Then they created Sonic the Hedgehog 06 and Shadow the Hedgehog. :vomit:

The only times that Sega has done Sonic well since Sonic CD has been when they have outside help. Sonic 2, 3 and Knuckles had help in the United States, and Sonic Mania was a fan game.

If Sega could have better leadership, I think they could make better decisions and games.
