Why are Sega so bad at releasing games? Platinum Games not happy

IncGamers: Platinum Games, the team behind Bayonetta, Vanquish and the upcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, has called on their fans to help save another of their in-development titles. (Anarchy Reigns, Industry, PS3, Xbox 360)

"The danger is that, with Sega’s continuing downturn in financial figures, Anarchy Reigns may not see the light of day over here at all – the company saying that their tactic is to now focus on “key IP”."

Key IP = Blue f*cking hedgehog, they keep flogging it and its gonna sink 'em.

I think Sega is boycotting Platinum for their flirts with Konami and Nintendo

Indeed. Sonic isn't the multi-million seller that it once was anymore. The last Sega-published game that sold well was a Sonic & Mario joint game. And none of Platinum's games sold particularly great for all the accolades they got. And Anarchy Reigns is just MadWorld for HD console owners which might end up only selling half of what MadWorld sold at best.

Sega just needs to publish lesser, better games. Forget Sonic for now, let him rest. They used to be kings...

indeed and if they checked back their game index they'll realize the sum of great games they neglected for a very long time.

Give it to a different publisher, this shouldn't even be legal.

the devs are saying its complete for both japanese and western versions yet sega aint releasing it this year? is it cause they're releasing that new sonic kart game, it better not :L

btw sega, make the next valkyria chronicles on ps3 and ps vita and the money will come to you instead of that browser valkyria game.

No matter what Sega is going to release it in a time where there are better games or ppl just lost interest in the game itself the longer you wait the more games are released and less interest you have in it when it launches ..... someone should do a petition and get it either out of Sega's hands or force them to release it

I was a die hard Sega console fan and loved its games and exclusives. but ever since they got out of the hardware business they seem out of touch with gamers in general. You would think focusing on software only would have them pumping out awesome Sonic games and other ips but it is not the case.

Why are grammar hard?

Platinum have got some fuckin nerve asking PS3 gamers for ANYTHING never mind help!!

Why is that? Is it cause the crappy Bayonetta port? That's Sega's fault. They were the ones in charge of the port. Platinum Games said they were only making the game for 360 and it was Sega's job to port it. Speak for yourself when you say they shouldn't ask us for help. All I play is my Ps3 and I have no problem with them.

Most of the platinum games have bombed hard sales wise, no big surprise. And like it or not, that browser game will probably make more money than a ps3 game.
