Just like SquareEnix, they think no one in the west wants to play anything except one IP (Sonic).

Ignoring the fact that many games like Phantasy Star, Valkyria Chronicles, Yakuza and etc have sold well over here.
>>
Because SEGA hates being successful.
>>
>>253968827
Yeah we're not getting more Yakuza because the previous titles made so much money in the US that Sega doesn't feel the need to bother. Yeah that's the ticket. You've done it again v.

If anything you should blame Sammy. It all went to shit ever since they bought Sega.

Fucking Sammy

Feels so fucking bad, man.

God fuck SoJ and SoA's stupid petty bullshit.
>>
It's because whenever Sega sends shit over, it fucking fails.

Usually, it's because its marketing team is pants-on-head retarded.

Even then, they should be focusing more on QA on the Total War games. Rome 2 was inexcusable.

>Sammy killed sega

Sega was doing stupid shit before they merged with Sammy. They had to merge with them BECAUSE of their stupid business practices.

You're like the idiots who blame Enix for 'ruining Square'. When Square has just been doing the same idiotic things they did before the merger to cause their downfall. Focusing 90% of their budget on Final Fantasy and killing all their other IPs. yeah, Enix is totally to blame for that...

>Yakuza
but muh dead souls
>>
>>253970081
I know, the infighting with SoJ and SoA drove the company into the ground. My point is, Sammy is probably the result of a lot of modern decisions. One of which being the OP.

>Why don't they localize anything

Xenophobic higher ups, also they probably think of the western fanbase as mostly furry considering all they localize is Sonic shit now.

That and they mainly care about Arcades which are basically dead outside Japan.
>>
>>253970793
It's a shame because Arcades are so fucking cool.

I hope they make a comeback like vinyl records.

Arcades are also dying in Japan too though, they must have some sorta long-term plan for this.

Expansion into the PC gaming market.

Notice how SEGA has made long strides to get major PC-centric titles.

they're localizing the hatsune miku games, and those are the best sega games.

Fuck you I don't like rhythm games
I want the other games like Yakuza, Phantasy Star, Shining series etc
>>
>>253971519
Those games are shit people only buy because Miku.

Sega is weird.
They are releasing a new Sonic game too and not making it a multiplatform.
That shit makes no sense in 2014.
>>
>>253971519
What an embarrassing thing to say..
To just flat out admit you have never tasted even ONE of Sega's arcade classics.

I'd never even listened to a Vocaloid song other than World is Mine before then.

Project Mirai 2 is better than outrun and streets of rage. I'm a segafag. The only game that comes close is house of the dead 1+2.

Afterburner is fun, but it's not as good as project diva, or even the K-ON games. Afterburner climax was real good though.
>>253971781
I diddn't know who miku was before the PSP games. You're just mad your games diddn't get localized.

The arcade game is even better than the console game.
