they should release a new sega console next year with a lot of first party titles. id love a new crazy taxi, powerstone, house of the dead, sonic, vector man and a lot of other titles

it would be awesome if the lack of sega released games is because they are waiting to release a new console with an onslaught of first party tites.

Powerstone is a capcom franchise.

they would go bankrupt if they do

Sony doesn't have the money anymore to release a console. They're not broke, but it's really expensive. It's also a pretty hostile market right now, with three major competitors. They could make more money by just releasing games on all the systems. Seems they aren't doing that with enough frequency though.

Sadly, Sega's name doesn't mean much anymore when it comes to consoles. They had some great ones, but only the older, die-hard gamers really remember how good they were. For my part, I also remember how incompetent they were at times too, which eventually led to their dropping out of the console market.

Looking back I realized I said Sony instead of Sega not having money. Hope anyone that read it realized the mistake.:(

Sega is GREAT at developing interesting and cool new IP's, but then they always screw them up or stop releasing games of that series.

Localize more of your games, Sega!

NexGen1145d ago

They keep refusing to localize. This is what happens. I want my dang phantasy star releases.

Sorry brutha ........ Sega hates america.

DemonChicken1144d ago

and my yakuza, god as i said on another article, sega has something against my wallet.

All i see is bloody sonic on their us blog (has to be at least one article on a page), which i'm seriously getting tired of. Not like I have anything against sonic but seriously there are other games i'm interested in.

Lack of localization on what they deem "too japanese" for this western market is probably what's hurting them.
We saw no phantasy star online 2 over and that could've sold a few hundred thousand copies easy.
I hope they localize Nova and that new shining title.

TM3331145d ago

No doubt. The crazy thing about PSO2 is that even though it's FTP in Japan, I'd gladly pay for the game to have it here in the "West". Somebody needs to be fired at Sega and then they need to get someone in charge who can give gamers what they want.

FarEastOrient1145d ago

Too Japanese? This is a Sega problem as a whole, since Atlus and NIS America were able to be successful and translate games for the west.

MrSwankSinatra1144d ago

If they localize Shining Resonance i'd pay 100 dollars for that, but unfortunately SEGA doesn't care about us anymore unless you like Aliens. SEGA will give you plenty of that......

Pillsbury11145d ago (Edited 1145d ago )

Kind of glad they didn't bring pso2 to the west as I was hopelessly addicted to PSO.

I have been too scared to touch an MMO since Haha

I would sure buy Yakuza 5 in an instant if they ever brought it over .
