SEGA ANNOUNCES THEY ARE OFFICIALLY MAKING ONLY MOBILE GAMES FROM NOW ON, NO MORE CONSOLE OR PC GAMES

translated article: http://www.japantoday.com/smartphone/view/arts-culture/fans-mourn-segas-exit-from-the-console-video-game-market

WHY DID YOU LET THIS HAPPEN /v/???
>>
Sega have been shit a while.

>>285082825
/v/ is full of Reddit and Nintendo cancer.
>>
So, does this mean that chris-chan won?
>>
>>285082825
literally nobody cares about sega anymore

they make shit games now, and rehash older ideas that were shit to begin with.

The only thing I would like from them is PSO2 western release, and that's about it.
>>
>>285082825
nothing of value was lost
>>
>>285082825
If they made good games and didn't keep porting the same games over and over, they would survive

How the fuck does it take 1.5 years to make Sonic 4 Episode 1 and another year to make Episode 2? Even then the games were still fucked

Well hopefully they die soon and start releasing those IPs so competent developers can buy them and we get the games our childhood deserves.

At this rate it wouldn't surprise me if the vast majority of devs/publishers are strictly mobile in a few years.

It's just a no brainer from a business standpoint. There's way too much easy profit in mobile gaming compared to console and PC gaming.

This is a complete lie. It's a very volatile market where most developers will end up killing themselves, and those who are left will be forced to make mobage and other freemium shit.

Sega Sammy Holdings, the parent company that now controls one-time video gaming pioneer Sega, is looking to seriously overhaul its structure and business operations. Statements from the conglomerate have stressed that this is an ongoing process, but one of the first steps seems to be Sega ditching the console video game business to focus on what it considers the areas of biggest growth, mobile and online PC games.

On the plus side, mobile Sonic games probably won't be so shitty now.

... It's just a damn shame that all modern mobile devices use fucking touchscreens. God, why couldn't they have just made Sonic Runners a 3DS eShop game or something?

It's over, /v/. Vidya is dead. I'm packing my bags and heading over to /tg/. See you there.
>>
I've been wondering if this is why we haven't had much Project Diva news or announcements. If we don't hear anything in march, I'm getting the feeling the PD arcade is going to come to a close too... They seems to suggest they're exiting all arcade business that can't be converted to online games, so versus games like that mecha TPS (borderbreak?) and card style games might survive, but miku seems up a creek, not to mention all their console single player games. On top of that they're closing shop on western publishing, so those hoping online games means they'll finally get PSO2 are probably out of luck too.
>>
>>285089152
> It's just a damn shame that all modern mobile devices use fucking touchscreens.

Ofcourse they do, part of the reason the 3DS hasn't sold as much as the DS is that somehow even after all the DS sold to older people. Systems with buttons are back to being stigmatised as childish.

Mobiles are gimped as game playing devices in order to be fashionable even though adults will bring them out to play games like candy cursh.

SEGA wasted too much time trying figure out what sonic needed to be in a 3D world. They still haven't figured it out.

Reminder that Gearbox drained over 40 millions out of SEGA for the scam that was Colonial Marines.

They could have used that money for:

I'm pretty sure Sega killed themselves. They seemed like they were desperate to get out of that contract with Nintendo so they released whatever shit as fast as possible. I think Boom was originally going to be a multiplat game but was shoved to the Wii U for the contract.

Not popular and they're mostly niche mpw. Not much point in using an IP in the mobile market if only a few hundred thousand will ever want to play it.

The mobile market is high volume, razor thin profit. Tying themselves down to those IP would be worse for them than just copying what's popular(endless runners, puzzle games,etc.)

But it clearly says pc games. Sega is only leaving the console market.

In the last years the bulk of profits (after pachinko) for Sega-Sammy were retail PC games. Not digital shit, no steam shit. RETAIL PC GAMES. As weird as it sounds. Its only logical this step. I hope this means pc releases of atlus titles.

The least they could do is sell off their fucking IP that they don't even use anymore. Yu Suzuki deserves to have the Shenmue after all the shit Sega put him through. Platinum should bet back MadWorld and Anarchy Reigns. Billy Hatcher should belong to Nintendo, and Comix Zone should also return to its original creator like how it happened with Toejam and Earl.

Why do people want this? I really don't understand even though I've seen it so many times.

I don't want to spend $2000 to play video games and don't know why so many people do. I know there are advantages to PC gaming but I don't think it's worth the astronomical cost, plus having to learn how to build one.

Why can't I just have my $250 Nintendo console? Why do you want me to have to spend several thousand dollars on a PC even though my console works fine at a price I can actually pay as a poorfag? Is killing off consoles going to make PCs cheaper somehow?

A decent PC that can play everything costs 300-400 bucks. Everything above that is for people who need 4K + 200 FPS. Or its for those who want to play badly optimised Ubisoft PC ports.

That's pretty untrue. They own Relic and Creative Assembly. Not even EA would stick them on Facebook duty. At least, not without milking their titties dry, first.

They haven't been doing that since the days of THQ. Games Workshop refused to involve SEGA with their licensing and gave it out to a bunch of other people instead. They cannot make a DoW3, and the Space Marine sequel got turned into the 40k MMO.

If they can't manage to make successful and good games, why would going mobile change that? Seems like they're just delaying the inevitable.

Never released shenmue 3 or a new jet set radio, so fuck sega. I was a huge sega fanboy back in the day, sonic was so much cooler than mario. After the genesis they went so far downhill it wasn't even funny. The DC did have a few gems but sega failed to really capitalize on them, so this is all really their own fault. They could only ride the sonic train so much.

>>285094345
Well that's part of what I was saying, you need to learn how to actually build a PC to use it, and that's a field I know nothing about at all and would have to study a lot to figure out how to do it right, if I don't break the parts I try to build it with.

I respect the people that can do it, but it's not something I think I could do and it's why I wouldn't want PCs to be the only option to play games.

It's not hard dude. A girl can do it and it doesn't cost $2000. I built mine for $800-850 back in 2012. Now it's even cheaper by just getting a GTX 750ti for $150 to start.

Also forgot, here's a guide for parts.

http://www.logicalincrements.com/

That propaganda console-players like to spread about PC costing "$2000 to get into" is false. You can build a PC for roughly $500-600 that will be able to max out Ground Zeroes, maybe the Phantom Pain, and 90% of games with 60fps.

If you really don't wanna build one, at least take the crap machine you have now and slap a GTX 750ti in it for $150. Maybe even get an i3-i5 processor for $170-200 and boom. You only spent $350 to play games better than a PS4 or an Xbone.

First Tri-Ace, now Sega, this is truly the slippery slope that leads to the end times.

None of you faggots are breeding so kids now are being brought up into homes with parents that are tech savvy enough to get their kid smartphone garbage but with no interest or knowledge about PC or console gaming. So their kids are exposed to cheap trash all through their youth and that becomes the shit they consume regularly.

you're full of shit, there has been several articles on this already, they did not drop console fully they are putting it on back burner we may see a console release every few years from them, but it won't be anything on the scale that they have done over the past 20 years. They are focusing the pc and mobile market which means we might see an actual release of some of their great console games to pc or even a proper pso2 western release as right now their localization on it is very poor and it's a base game pretty much so far behind patches its not worth playing.

Here's some actual detail on how the localization for pso2 is going

http://www.pso2.com/us/

it's very poor, but with them pulling the majority of their share out of the console market we may see this get better.

autistic shit heads taking to their keyboard to mourn over a failing sonic franchise because of bad business decisions, sega is finally pulling it's head out of it's ass which it should have done back in 2002-2008 rather then make continual milking, but this really says nothing for the company as a whole as far as sega is concerned they may milk the rest of their stock and popularity in the console market beating it like a dead horse, and when they finally feel that wad of cash is becoming a little light they may put full focus to pso2 or proper releases in PC, who knows because of sammy overall we might see collaborations from sega and atlus instead of them fighting it out all the god damn time. Or possible PC releases of some of their biggest hits.

Sega of Japan ran its Western arms into the ground out of spite. Now its winding down everything since it can't make money or manage projects with any competency.

As for Persona 5 what's wrong with it, looks exactly like Persona 4 in Red with a cat instead of a bear mascot. Looks like possible game of the year material considering how big the persona fan base has grown in the US. I don't know how serious you are to a game not even released.

Sammy already owned Atlus. Sega has offered Atlus help several times in the past with their path to online, but atlus as hard headed as they are won't let competitors near them, especially when their north american version of SMT; Imagine failed and atlus backed out for shit reasoning and jp exclusivity to imagine. Now with sega and atlus under the same shit hopefully some shit will get done. But neither will effect each others franchises none of that shit changes and for you to think so you really haven't understood what has been happening with atlus in the past 5 years. Atlus/Cave by themselves has been fucking up for the past 5 years, with numerous lawsuits against them, petitions for games, and their hard headed nature to not be reasonable with other companies going as far to attack magazine ads and other companies. They have fucked up so bad they have dropped publishers and host from several people over the turn of the past 5 years, until sammy cut them a break.

Let's compare today's Sega with Classic Sega of the 80s and 90s.

The Sega of the 80s and 90s had globally popular brands such as Hang On, Space Harrier, OutRun, AfterBurner, Streets of Rage, Power Drift, Shinobi, ToeJam & Earl, Phantasy Star, Shining Force, VF, Daytona, Sega Rally etc. These games were popular everywhere pretty much. This was no accident; Yu Suzuki was very focused on making the likes of OutRun appealing to Westerners as well as Japanese folk.
Likewise Rieko Kodama and Yuji Naka made games that were very Japanese yet also accessible to western gamers.
Yuzo Koshiro's soundtrack for Revenge of Shinobi and SoR were western influenced and that resulted in huge popularity in the west.

Now let's look at today's Sega, where Sega's Japanese output is aimed solely at Japan, with no thought of the global market. Its not even an afterthought.

In the West, they publish TW, Footie Manager, and other "spod" PC games, which have no appeal to the Japanese.

Thus their market is horribly split, Sonic is their only current global IP, and thus their brand identity is feeble. There are two separate Sega's which have no connection to each other and both feel bland as fuck.

Capcom may be stupid, but they still have several of their IPs and much of their identity intact. Sega are just a nothing company and are literally becoming invisible.

>>
>>285102551
A proper pso2 release years ago could have saved them in the PC market, they have the site up

http://www.pso2.com/us/

If they do it now however it seems shallow as shit and poorly managed. Given the current localization is just the base game and so far behind in patches it's not worth playing.

They could have done several remakes on several of the IPs they been through also poor business decisions wrapped around these.
Hell there was a sega anniversary collection on humblebundle during december 2014 that was awesome and they should do more into the pc market by expanding their list of games to localize and port to the PC market it would drastically save their image.

They could have made a new Streets of Rage (Koshiro was devving it) on the Dreamcast but Peter Moore had not heard of SoR.

Imagine a SoR 4 which retained the 2D gameplay like SFIV, but with hugely detailed characters and scenery...people would go apeshit if they revealed that at E3. The hype would be huge.

But Sega will instead make boring imitative generic shit...their line-up is snore inducing.

They're just going to stop making console garbage. It says so right there on the first paragraph, you retarded mongoloid. I can't say I blame them, with consoles being literally kill in Japan and all that noise. Also, PC gamers are the only ones supporting them now. Remember how great VC did for them recently on Steam? That's when they made the decision to leave console gamers behind, since the garbage that sells on consoles (#1 in UK charts) is bullshit like The Order 1886. I guess Sega wants to keep making games, not movies with bullshit QTE end boss fights. Good for them, I wish them good luck.

Also, expect more and more developers to leave that sinking ship which is console gaming.

I don't live in Japan though, so that doesn't affect me. The home turf of PC gaming is the west. The home turf of Mobile is Japan. Consoles no longer have a home turf, they're just dead, ancient machines nobody wants, like Betamax or VHS.

>Valkyria Chronicles is pretty much dead given the studio who made it are long gone.
So what? It did pretty well recently on PC and Sega still owns it, so I'm pretty sure they could make new ones in the future once they stabilize and get solid footing on their new home platforms (mobile and PC). What's for sure though is that they're DONE with making them for consoles. That's 100% certain.

>Sega can't be arsed to go to the trouble and cost of porting them.
That's your personal opinion. I bet you said the same thing about VC as well, before it was released on PC.

>It took them over a year to localize their old arcade game ports for 3DS.
Did it? because I don't own a 3DS so that didn't affect me. Too bad for the 3DS folks right? Thank goodness 3DS isn't PC.

Not seeing it happen. We'll only see online games on pc that never make it to the west.

Lost World's wasn't a complete let down though it wasn't great.
Generations and Colours were really good.

I do. I totally see it happening. If VC for PC happened, then so can this. I guess we'll just have to see, right?
>>
>>285083671
I sincerely hope Sega abandons total war and let's CA get a better publisher.

Fuck, why not have Paradox publish Total war games from now on?
>>
>>285111710
People are disappointed that Sega abandoned a lot of their franchises/never released some of their games in the west just to release more shitty Sanic games.

I still don't understand how you people can be excited for online games never to be released here? I wouldn't say anything if they started releasing their games on PC (like Yakuza 6, VC4), but that's not happening.
>>
Good, fuck Sega. They've been pumping out shit-tier Sonic games and ignoring other franchises that consumers have been begging for for over a decade. The console market isn't their problem, their problem is they decided to act like complete fucking jackasses.
>>
>>285112308
Total War should be OK. They're not killing their western devs as far as we know, but they are killing support team and publications - forums, pr, communities might get axed.

But SEGA said they're killing their arcade projects that can't be converted to online PC games. Arcade only seems like a dead concept.

Thanks for the advice, consolefriend. Since Sega is now PC and mobile ONLY, I will be excitedly looking forward to the future :^)

No they will sell them to companies dedicated to buying up ip's so others cant use them against its parent company.

Virtua Fighter was and is always an arcade game before anthing else.
The game is still alive on arcades there whilst dead on consoles.
There is still another update coming to arcade this month and not on consoles.
Why do you think that is?

They won't kill their arcade games never.
At least not virtua fighter.

How many times do I have to repeat myself in this thread that I'm not only a console user?

Why can't you just accept the fact that Sega is shit for making stupid decisions? You can still play VC 2 and 3 on pc with an emu, so that shouldn't be a big problem.

I'd also be happy if they release more of their games on PC, since then it could be actually translated by fans.

Wow.. check out that huge library of games! It's a good thing I'm a PC gamer.. and since Valkyria Chronicles did very well on Steam, there's a good chance now we'll get to see a lot of those titles! Full Steam ahead, Sega!! (get it, full STEAM ahead? heheh..)

>all these people crying about abandoned IPs that will never get sequels
You guys are fools if you EVER expected Shenmue, Skies of Arcadia, Jet Set, or any other classic games to get sequels. Sega abandoned them years ago. People have been begging for sequels for a decade, Sega didn't give a shit. They were too busy churning out broken, halfassed sanic games to care.

Why they decided to adopt that self-destructive business model is beyond me, but it's all said and done now. Sega hasn't made anything good in years and they haven't cared about their consumers in years. Blaming their lack of success on the console market, instead of their own moronic decisions, shows even more just how arrogant and out of touch they are.

Fuck Sega.

Sega Sammy ≠ Sega

Haven't seen such bad bait in a while. However if you're not baiting, then look up Sega Sammy and you'll find out they're not the same.

I'm more afraid they're going to be adding new IPs to that list, frankly. I guess if SEGA dumps Project DIVA, crypton can always hire dingo to carry on, but everything else seems up for grabs.

>>285114051

I won't explain Sega Sammy holdings to another shitposter again
>>

They'll be fine. Persona 5 is going to sell like hotcakes, they'll make money, and Sammy will be happy and let them do their own thing.
>>
>>285114890
>look up Sega Sammy and you'll find out they're not the same.

Ok lets see what it says..

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sega_Sammy_Holdings

>Sega Samī Hōrudingusu Kabushiki Gaisha?, TYO: 6460) is a Japanese holding company formed from a merger of Sega and Sammy. They are both very involved in the arcade business (Sega with video games, Sammy with Pachinko), and Sega's fame also comes from their console systems.
>They are both
>both

Yup, Sega is pretty much still there. You're just some bitter faggot, mad that Sega left consoles behind and moved on to only Mobile and PC. Stay mad, bitterfag!

What about the comics?

I don't read them but I heard the Sonic comics have been recently not shit, it'd be a shame if they were killed off due to this.

>Index gets free
>>
>>285116160
Probably fine, since production is handled externally by archie (I believe) and they're borrowing the IPs at some royalty rate. It's essentially free money to SEGA.
