Japanese company doesn’t say how many jobs it cut in U.S. operations.
Probably included all employees of Atlus. ROFL!
And now we'll never get any games.
Where else would "SEGA of America" lay off employees?
good lucks to those who have been laid off,hopefully they will end up with some good job opportunities.
Dang, hope they get hired by another company then. This doesn't really look very good for gaming, Sega bought Atlus which is sort of good but then.. Sega is closing Kazuya sites outside of Japan. & now they're laying off staff in America. I hope it doesn't mean we get less Japanese games from Atlus, etc.
Oh this can't be good for future western releases...
I feel sorry for the people who lost their jobs and I hope that they will all find new jobs with a company that will appreciate their talents, which Sega obviously do not. I love the way the article says that Sega has had trouble coming up with new hits. This is not the case as Yakuza 5 is a hit but Sega can't be arsed to localise it for Western market. When will Sega realise we don't want any more games featuring a blue hedgehog. I was much younger when Sonic first came out and yes I played it, but as I got older my choice of games changed and I am certain I am not the only one who feels the same. We have grown up and so should Sega!! If Sega want to survive next gen then they will need to localise more games to be successful, such as Ishin.
They better not be from Atlus.
