Sega really needs to get its $hit together. They cant afford another f**k up.

LostDjinn1040d ago

Agreed. Some of their games are awesome (Yakuza series for example) but mostly they seem to have lost their way.

Abash1040d ago

SEGA has so many beloved series being either mismanaged or collecting dust that it pains me to think about it.

ironfist921040d ago

Well they did help finance and publish Alien Isolation...

BC_Master_Haze1039d ago

I was thinking the same thing, that could be a way for them to see that getting behind good games is worth while. Maybe they'll try to find more studios passionate about the franchises they are allowed to use :)

They need to look at the way Ninja Theory are making Hellblade, their most recent interview with Playstation Access shows how productive they are as a team.

Making assets that can be easily tweaked for multiple uses, but made to look completely different and create varied looking environments quickly and easily, for a fraction of the cost of high budget AAA projects.
Same goes for enemy characters.

Ninja Theory are only using like 13 people to make Hellblade, according to wikipedia (not he best source, but for example), Sega has over 2000 staff, for that amount of people they could be working on more than a hundred games.

Sonic, Nights, Eco would be fairly easy projects to put out and each of those would easily sell more than a million units each, especially if Sega released them on current gen consoles and PC.
Their financial issues would be a thing of the past!

Oh how the once Mighty have fallen.........smh.

True_Samurai1040d ago

Sega if you want my money.... Release Shenmue 1 & 2 HD and give me 3. And BOOM profits

elninels1039d ago

I agree, its not that easy. What if they screw up bringing those games to the hd era? It'd be like screwing up ff7 hd.

All confidence would be lost.

Companies are always oblivious to the obvious.

The corporate suits are not true gamers and hence the disconnect.

SilentNegotiator1039d ago

The first game only sold 20,000 copies in its first two months in NA. I HIGHLY doubt that they would EVER consider making a sequel.
