So if Sega gets Atlus...

Can Sega even afford a cup of off-brand coffee? Didn't they just close most of their U.S. office during the winter? And I still haven't forgotten how they crapped on the U.S. when the Dreamcast died.

They're the only company that we know for sure that's bidding on Atlus, so i guess they can afford it.

SEGA has the arcade market on lock, everyone only thinks about the console/handheld games that get shipped out, but they are a COMPANY, meaning they do more than just one thing.

SEGA makes arcade games, arcade parts/cabinets/boards mainly that all the other companies have to buy from them to release games in arcades. While they ran their console market into the ground and continue to ignore the western fans and branch of their company, they are still making bank in Japan.

Also, seriously doubting more and more if PSO2 will come out outside Japan... its a very Japanese game in terms of their special events and costumes, and Japanese companies have this weird perception that the rest of the world does not know anything about other cultures (which is kinda true) but we know what a freaking kimono, not some "scary foreign clothing that's weird !" so they dont even bother anymore which is pretty stupid and sad.

I shudder to think if SEGA does release PSO2 outside Japan they will have that INSANELY DUMB separate update model like PSO and PSU had... ugh that was such a bad idea it literally killed the game.

Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...

The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

Persona 5 won't be localized in favor of the next Sonic game.

A few days later, I'm arrested for attempting to burn down Sega HQ with a bottle of lighter fluid and a match.

Old big companies like Sega tend to think their experience with failure and age make their input valuable. I think they'll push Atlus to focus on digital releases and less on physical, if they get a say in Atlus's decisions. Hopefully not.

Sega has a lot of money, size doesn't make value, rate of growth is what investors want. The biggest issue I have is that they might grow a bit from buying Atlus, but eventually their growth will flatten and they'll force Atlus to cut costs, and Atlus WILL be ruined if/when that time comes

Funny thing is that there hasn't been a new Sonic game in 3 years. SEGA has always tried to avoid making rehashes with Sonic and with their important franchises. SEGA has been working on other games like new Super Monkey Ball entries, Shinobi 2011, Puyo Puyo 3DS, Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed, Castle of Illusion, & ports of all of their old games for the PS3, 360, PC and 3DS. Sonic games after Generations haven't been too frequent like they were on the Wii and even in that time they gave us sequels of Samba De Amigo and NiGHTs Into Dreams.
