Sega keeps its most promising games locked up in Japan

From all appearances, it seems like we’re living in an age of unprecedented growth and opportunity in the video game world. Strangely though, the end of 2013 looks a lot more like 1993 than it does the future, at least when it comes to games traveling over international boundaries.

Like i keep saying , Sega is definitively the worst company of this gen . And many people simply didnt even see it creeping up , as they were busy (righfully for the most part) bashing Capcom or Square enix .

They mishandled almost each of their properties , new and old , and almost never listen to their fans .

Despite my lack of love for Sega this gen , i stil hope they'll leave Atlus alone in their corner

F-U-C-K YOU SEGA! If only you did not have the license of all those awesome games then I'd have no care for a shitty company like you! Isolationist my ass, they're just being too conservative. SCARED to even make a small leap for the Western Market. Bunch of cowards. dumbfucks.

Part of the reason Sega is out of the hardware business, idiots making bad business decisions and treating Japan like it's a top tier market. The Dreamcast and Sega Saturn launched in Japan a year before it came to the U.S, neglecting the biggest market and Sega wondered why both sold like crap.

Looks like I'm going to have to go invest in Rosetta Stone. Their stocks are about to skyrocket!

Good. They are going where the profit is. They still could reskin the characters or change weapons to guns or add more swearing to the dialogue and blood to make it appealing to American gamers.
