I doubt anyone forgot it. Your either old enough to remember or your not. I've brought it up a handful of times. When I was young and had no money cause I was a kid it was great. As an adult with a job I'd prefer to just buy

darthv7210d ago

it was more akin to Game Pass because you get new releases on the Sega Channel. I liked it as it let me try before I buy (again like Game Pass).

shinoff21838d ago

I don't remember new releases on it but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt since I believe you got 10 years on me. My issue with gamepass though is mostly the base. They haven't bought into the buying part

ZeekQuattro10d ago

I never forgot it. Still have the router for it. For what that's worth.

BrainSyphoned10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

No one forgot. It is usually brought up in Game Pass discussions when bad journalists and Xbox sheep say "Sega was ahead of its time but Microsoft has evolved it to be the best service humanity has even known" Add in a Netflix and Blockbuster reference, copy and store in a word file for your next deadline.

Lets pretend that Sega didn't have it's largest number of games release on game pass ever during this quarter by not even mentioning it in your article about how their games underperformed in sales.

Hmm CTRL F ah zero mentions of game pass at all.

Abriael17d ago (Edited 17d ago )

Sega did not mention Game Pass anywhere in its documents, so why exactly should I *assume* that it's a factor while some of its games underperformed because they were *bad* and sega had to apologize because they were bad?

Do tell, console warrior.

Terrible editor and terrible game maker they have become..
These guys have so many sleeping gems they can bring back to life.. just as remakes to begin with.. Blu Stinger, Skies of Arcadia, Virtua Fighter, Story of Thor, Light Crusader………………….

"Hmm CTRL F ah zero mentions of game pass at all."

Lol!

Abriael mentioned in the article that the games which underperformed were released in Q3, namely Sonic Superstars, Endless Dungeon andTotal War: Pharaoh.

And guess what? NONE of those games were released on Gamepass! XD

recoctimocassirnff16d ago

You think just because those game weren't on GP, that it didn't affect sales?

The very fact that GP exists means it affects sales.

You know why I never bought Far Cry 6 even though I wanted to play it? Because I saw so many ubisoft titles, and basically every single FC title went to PS Plus Extra. So instead of spending $125 (Australian price, utterly ridiculous) I simply waited just over a year and then sure as day FC6 came to Extra.

And I can't be the only one savy enough to be doing this.

Profchaos17d ago (Edited 17d ago )

Let's not solely blame gamepass I played like a dragon on PS plus and got into lost judgement and all via a PlayStation sub.

It's subscriptions in general

However now I got a taste for that style of game I'm going to pickup infinite wealth when it's on sale mainly cause I don't have the time to dedicate to it right now

There was sonic superstars though which has not launched on a service but I feel that was outshined by Mario wonder given that sonic sells best on Nintendo and it launched a week apart

CrimsonWing6916d ago

If GamePass is so crippling to them then why do they keep putting games on it? It’s not like they’re force to.

OneLove16d ago

Brain dead comment. Zero correlation.

@JunonZanon I don't know how anyone can play RTS games on consoles, the controls are horrible.

FinalFantasyFanatic16d ago

I would have blamed their pricing scheme ($115/$120 for a new game? Charging out the butt for the Etrain HD Remasters? Charging extra for New Game Plus?), but some of those games did well anyway. None of the titles mentioned in Q3 exactly set my world on fire, I didn't purchase any of them, maybe no one else did either?

cue the panicked pivot to more live service...

Some of the greatest Sega products have been the result of panic like the 32x /s
