Rumor: Platinum Games takes a shot at Sega?

" Wow Sega put a lot of effort into this game, not like the last Sonic was any frame of reference. F%$#ers"
This is the apparent quote to what the announcers say late in the game but remember this is all speculation.

There is no way PlatinumGames will take a shot at their publisher who is going to publish 3 more games for them.

avantgarde843266d ago

no i remember them saying something about Sega but i was way to busy with the game to really hear.

Rikitatsu3266d ago

Its just a rumor from a random Nintendo fanboy.

ndpad3266d ago (Edited 3266d ago )

Most likely your right. We still covered it though hoping someone could give proof either way.

Remember this was from an actual forum and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Can anyone give a confirmation of this though because we can't find it in game in the credits or the gameplay.

avantgarde843266d ago

It wouldnt surprise me is all im saying

ChaoticStupid3266d ago

Rikitawhatever, how the hell are you not perma banned? you think everything was done by a Nintendo fanboy and you think anyone who even remotely enjoys the Wii is a fanboy.. You really need some kind of professional help. You probably think Nintendo fanboys steal your sock from the dryer and wont sleep without a light on because a Nintendo fanboy is under the be.... grow up.

tda-danny3266d ago

Nintendo fanboys really exist?

Rikitatsu3266d ago

Calm down Tiger, If there is a certain group that hates SEGA then they are the Nintendo fanboys, and I actually love Madworld and think the Wii has some pretty good games like muramasa and Fragile. However, I've seen how Nintendo fanboys always bash Sega, You can take the Nintendo fanboy site (oldwizzrd.com) as an example.

lol I know.

They come out every once in a while. But it's a blue moon kind of thing.

"There is no way Platinum Games will take a shot at their publisher who is going to publish 3 more games for them."

Like you would know. You're a Sega fanboy and you believe that anything bad said about Sega is false. Platinum Games is just stating the obvious when they take shots at Sonic. There hasn't been a decent Sonic game in forever.

Rikitatsu3266d ago

How I am a SEGA fanboy when I just stated a logical opinion? regardless of whether there was a decent Sonic game in recent years or not, There is not way (thinking logically) that PlatinumGames would say that to their publisher who are going to work with for 3 more projects. Be real!

I hate it when Nintendo fanboys get all defensive.

BRG90003266d ago

Why is this "rumored"? The game is out, and it's not that long. If that was said, people would know it, and you wouldn't have sites "speculating" about this quote in the game on a slow news day.

Let's put this to bed and move on.

N4g_null3265d ago

Actually SEGA is the only other company up there with nintendo in the eyes of the nintendo fans. The DC is still seen as the better console to the PS2. If any one understand s gaming it would be sega before MS or SONY. You would not hear any thing like that in the game. Sega does come up but I don't remember that being said in game.

@Rikitatsu

Did you even read the article? or follow the link to the source? How can you say that the site is a Nintendo website that dogs Sega, like Oldwizard, when the rumor started in a Sonic forum?

Axisian3265d ago

You're saying that a SEGA forums can't possibly have SEGA Haters?

Product3265d ago

@Axisian

I guess Gonintendo is a Sega basher then for it posting the same rumor?
Regardless like Scissor said Sega to most Nintendo fans is doing a great job with thier support of the system and Nintendo in general.

"If there is a certain group that hates SEGA then they are the Nintendo fanboys"

I think your living in 1993, when what u just said might have actually meant something. To say everything negative said about sega are from "nintendo" only fans is CraZy.

Especially when u add 360/Pc and sony fans into the mix

Plus sega has made many good games for the wii. So really if anything why would nintendo fans complain>>>?

Regardless of whether this is true or not...

...Platinum Games is fantastic!

Xander-RKoS3265d ago

Well...Madworld did make fun of nearly everyone who worked on the game...but making fun of yourself is different than making fun of your publishers.

I beat the game, never heard them say this. Closest thing to an outside reference was a Matrix one, but never anything against Sonic...heck I'm sure the game was already done when the latest Sonic came back and got it's reviews in.

Besides...Sega didn't put any effort into any game, I'm sure Platinum games wouldn't give away their own credit for making the game especially if they gave it to Sega.

Rikitatsu3265d ago

"Besides...Sega didn't put any effort into any game"

This gen only:
Empire: Total War
Virtua Fighter 5
Yakuza 3
Valkyria Chronicles
House of The Dead overkill
Yakuza Kenzan

I hate people who follow stereotypes.

Xander-RKoS3265d ago

But did Sega actually put any effort into making those games? No, they published them. Platinum made Madworld, Sonic Team made Sonic and the Black Knight and Sonic Unleashed, Headstrong Games made House of the Dead: Overkill, The Creative Assembly created Empire: Total War, Amusement Vision made Yakuza 3...get it yet? Sega made Virtua Fighter and Valkyria Chronicles, but didn't make Madworld and didn't make any Sonic games. Please learn the difference between developing and publishing.

Oh and don't take quotes out of context, if you read the rest of that line you quoted I said: "Platinum games wouldn't give away their own credit for making the game especially if they gave it to Sega." Meaning, Platinum games is not going to have a quote saying Sega made Madworld when they didn't.

Axisian3265d ago

I am pretty sure you just "Googled" the games and took a look at thier development studio.

I laughed pretty hard on this:

"No, they published them. Platinum made Madworld, Sonic Team made Sonic and the Black Knight and Sonic Unleashed, Headstrong Games made House of the Dead: Overkill, The Creative Assembly created Empire: Total War, Amusement Vision made Yakuza 3...get it yet? "

That is a proof that you are not qualified to enter an argument. first off with the exception of Platinum and Headstrong.., Sonic Team, The Creative assembly, Amusement Vision, Are all SEGA development teams, They are NO DIFFERENT than the teams who made Virtua Fighter 5 and Valkyria Chronicles. THEY ARE ALL SEGA DEVELOPED GAMES

There is no development team called SEGA, The teams at SEGA are named variously.. Sega WOW · Sega-AM2 · Sega-AM3 · Amusement Vision · Sega Rosso · Smilebit · Overworks · Sonic Team · Sega Studio USA · United Game Artists · Wave Master · STI · SegaSoft · Sega Racing Studio · Sega PC are ALL IN-HOUSE Developemnt studios at SEGA. With creative assembly being a fully owned first party development... Similar to what Naughty dog is to Sony.

In a nutshell:

Empire: Total War
Virtua Fighter 5
Yakuza 3
Valkyria Chronicles
Yakuza Kenzan

Are all games DEVELOPED by SEGA.

Next time, do not spout nonsense please.
