With all of Sega's financial woes going on, it needs a savior. And here's why there's no better one than its formal rival, Nintendo.
it could certainly open up the roster of more characters in future smash and kart games. Imagine toe jam and earl racing in their ship against the of luigi or perhaps ristar fighting against kirby...
That would be great too, Nintendo could take care of the franchises.
Nintendo must buy sega to secure Sonic, Shenmue, skies of arcadia, streets of rage, golden axe n thousands of classic Sega Ip's
Sonic will do a lot better under Nintendo. Just like Mega Man would too. Not only if Nintendo buy Sega they get Atlus too DEAD
I don't think that is true. You do know atlus has a very big fanbase with sony platforms. Back to sonic my favorite character sega can't and after recent results from their sales shouldn't ever think that their fans went nintendo after they went out a considerable number of those fans went to sony. I hope they give the ps4 a try with a sonic game.
Now we're talking! It really is a perfect fit. Nintendo has worked with Sega on games in the past, with Smash and the Olympic games. Sega's IP's mesh together extremely well with Nintendo's since they are both from the same era of arcade games. And if I'm not mistaken Sega is apart of Nintendo's Tri-Force team which also consist of Namco and Capcom. Nintendo is the best suited to take Sega's franchise and make them great once again. Could you even imagine Miyamoto or his team working on a proper Sonic game? How about giving Phantasy Star to the guys who made Xenoblade Chronicles! Crazy Taxi could be worked by Platinum...yea I know...some of the devs I am mentioning are not Nintendo 1st party but they have a very close relation to them. And Smash Bros would be insane! Not to mention mashing Sega All Stars and Mario Kart together...or keep them separate but then have a yearly ALL Kart Smash when both franchises come together. Nintendo could easily corner the market on the best IP's and exclusives if they bought Sega.
Hell no, Nintendo shouldn't even touch Sega.
Why? because of Sonic Boom? the T.V show tie in game by a studio hardly associated with nintendo? Was it Bayonetta 2? Was last years G.O.T.Y not good enough of a sega sequel?
I want sega as independent as it could be. I am a sony fan after sega went out from the console I bought every sonic game on PS2 . It would be sad for me if they go away from sony and specifically me, and because I dont want to be selfish I dont want sony to buy them either. All the best sega
Indeed, better that they remain independant rather than being taken over by exclusivity. Even though their actions are questionable, i would never want to see that happen.
Except... most games other than Atlus' aren't very worthwhile...
wherever Atlus goes, I go.
Nintendo can have Sega but Sony gets to keep Atlus, Yakuza and Valkyrie Chronicles! That's the only way I'd be happy with this.
I'd rather see Nintendo pick up Sega then watch EA, Activision, SquareEnix or Ubisoft pick up Sega. Many Sega franchises will be screwed if these other companies pick up Sega. Hell I'd like to see Sony pick up Sega.
Nobody should buy Sega...All of their games should be available everywhere! I hate how Sony and MS get hate for wanting to buy exclusives, but when Nintendo is mentioned everybody loves it. Why do people have such fetishes for exclusives? Exclusive means your excluding. Is the game suddenly more fun when you know others can't play it? I don't understand. But hey, it's Nintendo they don't make mistakes ever! I love Nintendo, but I don't want to see them buy Sega. P.S. I know no exclusives are mentioned, but if Nintendo bought Sega do you really think they put the games on PS4/ XBO/PC?
Exactly why i don't want one of the console makers to buy them out.
The only reason i want them to be bought by someone is because i don't think they can save themselves. They are falling behind massively. They are cutting themselves off from their current fans and a lot of new gamers don't even know who they are. Current fans are so lost when it comes to SEGA now. If they keep this up it's only a matter of time before they go broke.
No! please don't. I want another Alien Isolation game. I don't want the next alien to be made to look cartoony so it can be put on the wii u.
True! We remember how cartoony resident evil 4 was when it was on the gamecube! /s
That is such an ignorant comment.
WTF all of you saying.. SEGA own ATLUS do you want Persona series become Nintendo exclusive? Valkyria Chronicles also, Nintendo own the smallest player base in the market currently, do you really want to see famous hardcore games wasted in a console no one have?
Don't you think with a lot of new IPs to utilize they would grow that user base?
How about getting those games would boost console sales and then everyone would have a Nintendo system. Problem solved!
Persona is already on 3DS so what
Are you talking about Persona Q? That somehow outweighs every other Persona ever?
A lot of SEGA Ip's are dark, and Nintendo can't handle that. The Nintendo now can't handle that, but in the 90's yes.
Wasn't there an article a few hours ago that posed the question that Sony should buy SEGA?
I doubt Sega would be bought out. If anything Sega will auction off their IPs.
I'm pretty sure that SEGA won't let other companies to take over the them entirely because as of now their business as a 3rd party dev+publisher is doing great and its paying off. They earn profit on releasing various games on Sony, MS, Nintendo and Steam platforms. It won't happen, I know it. IT would be a dumb decision if they let it happen. They won't get much on Nintendo these days considering that the Wii U is struggling to compete with Sony and MS. 3DS alone won't help them to lift up and regain the momentum that they have lost. Whereas on PS4 and X1 they will definitely earn more.
what are you talking about? If nintendo buys sega, then they are part of nintendo.
Imagine Smash Brothers including Sega characters.
If Nintendo got hold of Sega, would that mean we'd have PSO2-Wiiu edition? It would be a natural fit and I hear that Sega is in pretty bad shape, maybe not as bad as capcom, but still hurting hard.
sorry to ruin your horrible wet dreams of nintendo owning sega but thats not happening and they would f**k up every ip's personality for what you know them as.
As if Sega hasn't done that enough already. Honestly their IP's are better off in anyone else's hands but their own.
honestly nothing. i don't like how sega is today either but buy out sega? please... any woe that happens to a gaming company today is automatically doom to idiots they need to be bought they need to be third party they need to merge. how many times sh*t like this is said during the years and never happens cause you morons are so dramatic and over exaggerate crap and it wouldn't be better off in some other companies hands they have different styles of gaming and as hard you want your precise ip title to appear on store shelves its not gonna be that damn ip you been waiting for cause some other company took a different approach to it. so you can masturbate to your damn ip title on store shelves with your fake ass smile on your face to go with the fake reboot make over of that ip.
1. I never said anyone should buy them out, simply that their IPs would be in better hands anywhere but Sega 2. They wouldn't be worse if someone understood what made the game great (Donkey Kong Country to Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze as an example) 3. Wtf are you saying lol. I can understand why you have 2 bubbles now.
