Sega related new.

First of all SEGAs answer too the Shenmue Campaign was:
Quote:
We got contacted by a member of Sega staff, and we can at least clear some things up.

"This is hardly an official statement, but I can tell you that despite rumours to the contrary, there is nothing in the works for Shenmue III. However, SEGA is aware of Shenmue's position and the special place it holds for fans, and we would never discount the possibility of doing another one.

There is no Shenmue 3 in the works because Suzuki-san is too busy on Shenmue online and will be for another couple of years at least. There is every possibility that he would want to do a Shenmue 3, but the general feeling is that it won't happen in the next 3-5 years; or until SEGA reaches it's current business goals - That is to become a top 3 publisher.

I’d tell our fans not to give up hope – but not to hold their breath either."
This is a shame but its exactly what I expected.

---

Secondly SEGA did a servay about a new game there making
Asking which of these names fitted with this discription of a game:
Crucible, The Gift, The Box or The Sacrament

The game discription was:
Quote:
“An open free-roaming action horror game where the player undertakes a terrorizing journey of suspense, fear, power and discovery, [sic] And where every decision has multiple consequences… Uncover an ancient test with unimaginable power that seduces you into evil, sin and corruption.”
Note: This game could be the game that Silicon Knights is developing for SEGA
because the code name for that game is 'The Box'.

--

Yakuza 2 has already sold 200,000 copys and Yakuza 3 has been announced
for a next gen console but no spasific details on the game, release dates
or which console it will be on.
I'm more then positive it will be on Both Xbox360 and PS3.

--
Also you can download loads of SEGA music including JSR, NiGHTS and Burning Rangers from here, (Credit too Fruits for the find.)

Nice, I knew about Sega and the publisher thing. They seriously need to fix Sonic Team before they think they can get to top 3... from 11 to 3 is a long way.

Shenmue online, pffft. Why not just send a personal letter of apology to the 3 people that were gonna buy it and be done with that.

I don't think its that impossably, They'll need to steal some publishing rights
from other companys like EA which is easy enough.
and make more IPs that appeal to main stream..
(But nothing like GTA or ill be dissapointed.)

I'd say top 5 is alot more likely goal though,
Unless they plan on making shitty movie/cartoon licence games but I doubt it.

Who are the top 3 at the moment? Nintendo, Electronic Arts, Konami maybe? SEGA aren't gonna match/beat them for a very long time. Plus there's the likes of Activision and Capcom standing in there way.

Its impossible. Sega should be happy with a top 10 spot. They seem to have decisions in their gaming side that reflect their hardware side.

There talking about top 3rd party so that counts anyone with consoles out
(Nintendo)

EA is number 1 Then Activision then THQ. (If I remember rightly)
I doubt they'll get too number 3 with out selling out too shitty movie/cartoon
based games or making GTA clones.. Which they will never do.
Maybe number 5, if lucky.

I don't see why they won't do that didn't they recently release Charlotte's Web and Iron Man is due out next year. Plus they already make quite a few anime based games so it wouldn't be that much of a leap.

I take it there talking about a Top 3 publisher in America then aswell.

World Wide, Iron man isnt actually a movie licence its the character
they have the rights too make games based on movies, comic books or cartoons of IronMan
Yes there is an Iron man movie comming out so of corse they'll make a game for that movie.
Who passes up that! There also getting another Marvel Licence.. I'm hoping its Sliver Surfer.
But its not like SEGA havent had Marvel Licences in the past.

I'll give you charlottes web, No idea what thats about but they didnt develope it.
Its annoying me infact, On there website they have the best game line up they have had
in YEARS.. and right in the middle theres Charlottes web bringing the standard down.
IDIOTS!
