I could see Sega selling off its IPs eventually. Imagine a Samsung or another big manufacturer wants to get a hand in, they'd need some history. Sega has great history with games that they don't even use, and arent in the position to. It'd probably require a Sega fan CEO, though.

Sony DOES have the cast.

The problem is half of them don't fit in a party game, they've lost the rights to a quarter, and they only included a third of the remainder in PSASBR in favour of multiplat characters no one gives a fuck about.

If they'd been able to include shit like Crash, Wander, Solid Snake, Lara Croft, Spyro, and a couple of the villains of their classic franchises - such as Dr. Nefarious instead of boring shit like Zeus - it would have been cool as fuck.

Instead we got Fat Princess and that one cunt from fucking Star Hawk.

This is something they could easily do in any existing modern gaming platform if they really wanted to. And "all past games" is literally impossible because licensing, costs and low demand.

>2 TB version retails at $499

So hardware an order of magnitude more powerful than the PS4 for $50 less? How big exactly do you think are Sony's profits on each PS4 sold? If we're talking about unrealistic shit, might as well ask if someone would like to buy a PC with quad-sli 980s with 16GB VRAM, 32GB RAM, an 8-core 16-thread Xeon, all for $100. I'm gonna guess the answer is an unanimous "yes".

I find it both funny and sad that people here actually get excited at the mere idea of being forced into buying yet another gaming box due to software exclusivity, because this one has their favorite company's logo slapped on top.
>>
>>284740474
I think rather than just having your favorite company's logo on it, its more like confirmation that the company is healthy and putting as much (read more) effort into their game boxes than other companies. There's no reason for these old, beloved IPs to be revived except on a large budget with implied excellence and with more to come.

Being a SEGA console, what's the major flaw that it would have?
>>
>>284741181
So, you really buy consolemakers' bullshit that the best/biggest games are exclusives because they say so? The biggest budget game out there (and one of the highest rated if you care about that) is GTAV if it hasn't been dethroned yet, and it's a multiplat. Games need to make back what they spend, so making a very expensive game and limiting it to the userbase of a single console is asking for trouble. This also means that big budget first party exclusives are under severe pressure which is why every one of them is a predictable me-too pandering to the lowest common denominator.

Expecting Sega, or any company at all, to make big budget niche games, put them behind a $350 paywall, and actually make a decent profit is as unrealistic as expecting absolute top-of-the-line gaming hardware for $350. The absolute best situation for any publisher is to be multiplat, as it gives them access to the entirety of the playerbase of all platforms combined, plus they aren't saddled with hardware costs eating into their game budget.

This time around... Not enough mainstream viability. Beyond hardcore fans and enthusiasts Sega would really have to market the fuck out of it to gain enough ground in between the other three giants....
A part of me hopes that after the whole Xbone fiasco, Microsoft will remember their friendship with Sega during the Dreamcast/Xbox days, simply buy 'em out, make them a "Marvel" like division within the company that is basically free to operate how they see fit, and try to attract as much talent that's left as possible to make a system like >>284736347 come true that satisfies Xbros as well.

>why did Sega abandon so many of their franchises when they went third party
SEGA is without a doubt the worst at business practices in the industry. Even worse than 2010-2013 Microsoft. It has always been this way.
The funny thing is, they still own the vast majority of their franchises from the genesis days. In fact, they've actually picked up a few more (total war, alien, bayonetta, etc) so if they wanted to pull a move like OP is suggesting they would certainly have the franchise library to support it.

No.

Sega is a company of incompetents. Even if Angels came down and left them a business plan they would somehow fuck it up.

Segafags need to learn that Sega's success was a complete fluke. The only modicum of success that they ever found was with a toy executive running Sega of America. Then the japs back hope in nippon got upset that he was making the company too successful, because they wanted to make weird bullshit nobody would buy. If not for Kalinske, Sonic would still be a spiky brown sociopath who was fucking a knock-off Jessica Rabbit. Kalinske vetoing Sega of Japan's stupid shit is what made Sonic as successful as he became.

Then the nips got upset and bounced him. The next CEO was the lunatic who said shit like 'RPGs on our platform will damage the brand' and blocked games from Grandia on the Saturn from being localized and basically singlehandedly drove the Saturn into oblivion. Dreamcast was a pretty successful platform but it was killed by Sega's own incredible incompetence.

Sega's biggest enemy is Sega.

that monster corrupted the image of true beauty!

>>284736347
Yeah, but no way a console could pull that off at that price
>>
>>284748582
Do you honestly believe if they had never focused on 3D with the Saturn and had instead just stayed true to 3D it could have been a successfull platform?
>>
>>284736347

nope.

3 consoles and a PC is enough as is.

If they made those games PC exclusive, I'd buy all of them.
>>
>>284749291
Rushing it to the market with incomplete memory and 3D capabilities to beet Sony to the race was probably their all time biggest mistake, bigger than the 32X even. Still, a lovely system, too bad only Japan got to enjoy it...

>He also said that the code for Panzer Dragoon Saga is lost, meaning the Sega Saturn version will be the only version to ever exist.

Congrats, OP. I'm fucking miserable now.

It could've been successful if the release date didn't get pushed up. At least mildly. At least it would've done better than it did.

>>284749291
I believe that if Kalinske had remained in charge of Sega of America that Sega would still be in the console business

Sega in the 90s was a company of extremely creative and talented developers with absolutely no business sense and nobody to reign them in after Kalinske left.

>While CEO of Sega of America the company grew from $72 million to more than $1.5 billion and the market value of Sega grew from less than $2 billion to more than $5 billion.[citation needed] The Genesis and Game Gear systems were highly successful during this time. Later the commercial failure of the Sega Saturn video game console in the US was exacerbated by Sega's announcement during E3 1995 that the system was available in selected stores effective immediately instead of on the planned date of September 2, 1995, which had been dubbed “Saturnday”. Kalinske was generally completely against releasing the Saturn early, but was forced to do so by Sega of Japan. With few games and consoles in stock, the pre-selected retailers simply weren’t ready to begin distributing the machine, and those left out of the loop were so offended by this move that they refused to distribute the Saturn at all

Kalinske had business sense and knew what people wanted to buy and how to move product. And he clearly didn't have too much of a negative effect on the games; Sega made some great ones during the time he was in charge.

You mean 2 consoles with one on the way out...
Xbone is already an irredeemable failure and I doubt Nintendo will do much with the Wii U after the new Zelda is out. And the PS4 has a disappointing number of games, both in the now and on the horizon. Worst console generation since the first.

It's perfect.
>>
>>284749187
This, the beginning of the end of consoles being powerhouses came with the PS3. The $600 didn't even cover the cost then and Sony and M$ agreed to not overstep the specs on this generation because of it.

You're not getting a console that can compete with high end PCs for under $600 ever again, or at least until manufacturing and resource extraction for the parts becomes extremely affordable for some reason.

On other words, we have, at least for the foreseeable future, hit a wall with console power. We are going to have to accept that high end PCs will always be more capable but only in the hands of the few while everyone else gets ports. The trick to solving this is to stop putting so much effort into visual fidelity. I know people don't want to hear that, the the PS4 and Xbone are perfectly capable of running fantastic GOAT games if we stop caring about muh realistic grafix

1.Rockstar had a shitload of money eating flops all last gen. Starting with GTA4. It didn't flop but you'll have to be an idiot to sit there and say it wasn't a failure.

2.Crappy carnival games on the wii kept their doors open and paid for those flops. It also paid for GTA5 and all of it's marketing.

3.AAA needs to do that. A and those handful of decent budget titles can make do on a single system with a large enough base of customers.

>>284749913

Didn't stop Sega from making crossover games with those characters, did it? Or Nintendo and Capcom for that matter. I was replying to the probably underage anon that said Sega doesn't have the cast to justify a crossover game like Smash when they already have an All Stars series that spans sports and racing games.
>>
>tfw /v/ has the best speculative threads on 4 chan
I just wish they would happen more

>>284750465

It's not speculation. It's merely someone dreaming of SEGA's come-back into the console market.
>>
>>284749752
Kalinske once worked for Matchbox and personally discovered that the reason Matchbox cars didn't sell in Spain was because the distributor was forging their own and selling them in place.

The shitstorm would have been glorious. It would have made $599 look like nothing.

Hello, voice of the soul of Sega here. I am plotting my return as we speak.

First I will take down Microsoft. They no nothing of this war, they will wiped away quickly.

Then I will move to Sony. So kind of you Sony to finish me off. I hope you song mind if I return the favor.

Then, Nintendo, it will be just you and I, just as it always should have been, and this time things will be different. NEC pls, nobody remembers you

Ask away.

SEGA still owns the rights to almost all of these. They own exclusive rights to everything Alinen through 2018

I'd find it funny.

Numbers become confusing if the installments are not regular.

Even if they are, subtitles are better for marketing after a while. See: COD, Halo

Sega vs Capcom when?

Fuck, if they can do a comic about it, they can do a fucking game.

Key individuals within Sega dug its grave to be more exact.

Yes, sounds awesome and always had dreams of another Sega console.

>>284751191
whats wrong with the actual name?
>>
>>284751679
I plan to unleash an upgraded port of the game on Xbone and PS4.
>>
>>284748582

We know. Damnit all to hell we've known this shit for years. We watched it happen!
>>
>>284752156
Where can I read up on all this?
I'm 24 so I was a kid when all this was happening but I've always loved my genesis. It's my favorite console.
>>
>>284751805
I meant make a continuation of the original phantasy star series. Why the fuck would I mean more PSO when its what killed Phantasy Star?
>>
>>284747983
Why wasn't there a proper port of Streets of Rage 1, 2, and 3 to arcades, with enhanced graphics and sprites? With THUMPING urban/electronic music?

Also, that doesn't look very good, reminds me of the DARK AND EDGY reboots that plagued the 7th generation.
>>
>>284752035

Please post a picture of the character in question so I know whether you're retarded or it's a mix-up.

If this console is the return of arcade style games I'd buy two of them. Oh wait it isn't real.

I'll keep dreaming.

Book called 'Console Wars'.

Really shows how mentally handicapped the nips running Sega were. They had a dude who brought many companies great success and bounced him because they were so asshurt they couldn't deal with him telling them their ideas were shit.

Would that be ten Michael Jacksons or ten-year-olds?

>>284753647
he said
>Knights into Nightmares
Obviously he meant NiGHTS but accidentaly added a K in the front
>>
>>284746892
literally the exact opposite. You LAUNCH with your star franchise so people want to buy the system for it.
>>
>>284753768
all of my kek anon, all of it
>>
>>284753775

And my original point was the drastic change of the character if the 'K' was canonically added to the name.

>>284736347

How do we top Jet Set Radio FUTURE? What word sounds better than that? "Forever" would still abbreviate as JSRF, so let's not use that.

How about Jet Set Radio Heaven? Heaven sounds more important than Future, and we can use this as an excuse to add angelic powers to the gameplay.
