But will the games still get localized?

>Good relationship

Am I missing something? I've never heard of them even having that much to do with one another...

I imagine that's addressed in the third one from the bottom.

Also, Chess is a game of skill much like all gameplay only video games. So it is pretty mindless if you think about it.-mtjormitch

Why wouldn't they? Atlus USA still exists ya know.

I just want to know what's going to happen to Atlus USA. If they're taking them down, then all hope is lost. Otherwise, there's still a decent chance Sega won't screw everything over.

Is this how Bioware fans felt when EA bought them out?

Obviously all my fears are not allayed but this is enough to at least put me at ease until I'm given reason to feel otherwise.

I have a friend convinced that Nintendo secretly owns Sega and has for a while now, so when he read this news his reply was "So Nintendo bought Atlus, good.."

Then went on to explain that Nintendo did this so they can still make money through Atlus by putting SMT and Persona games on Sony consoles.

>_> No I do not believe him, but I found it funny anyways.

I don't think Sega is nearly as bad as EA... Is it?
Hell, is Sega even that bad?

Seems fair enough, except for "Sega's know-how will enhance Atlus' brand".

All they "know how" to do is Sonic here, Sonic there, Sonic Sonic everywhere... :(

I don't see Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony. I see Mario, Zelda, Uncharted, Resident Evil, Gears of War, Alan Wake, Heavy Rain, etc. Play games, not companies.
