Sega never did anything wrong to the industry. They are and remain Saints compared to Microsoft and the Xbox. I would exchange MS for Sega in a heartbeat.

The industry must be so pissed at them providing the bulk of their software income.


How much of that is 360? I would say a lot



Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Killzone 2. its not a fps. it a FIRST PERSON WAR SIMULATOR!!!! ..The true PLAYSTATION 3 launch date and market dominations is SEP 1st

Yet another joke thread today.

Regarding your first reason, that would be one for the industry to be mad at Sony. As for your second one, nobody was working on Kinect games, so the removal of mandatory Kinect is a positive thing.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Well at least MS seems well on their way to rectify things if their pre-E3 news is anything to go by

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

No. I'm sure the industry is glad MS is reacting and trying to get boxes in peoples homes. That's all they care about.

I am a huge sega fan and would exchange Sega for Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft combined... But this is wrong.

They pissed consumers with 32X and Sega CD support, even through I liked Sega CD very much.

And they pissed off the industry with the early launch of the saturn.

Then they pissed off the industry again with the Dreamcast launch 3 years later.

 

Microsoft didn't piss anyone off yet, other than a few devs who were making Kinect games. 



everybody and their mothers knew about a kinectless bundle coming out at some point. I doubt the devs were surprised.



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

They may have pissed consumers, but not the industry. The industry just ignored them when they failed to sell (aka EA not supporting the Dreamcast).

Um, didn't they release a console, then drop it, then release a new one, then drop that one, then release yet another...all w/in like 5 years?

I can tell you that I would stay a Sega fan after that /sarcasm

Yeah I understand. The 32X was a complete fiasco, but then again, it didn't piss anyone in the industry it just hurt their reputation very badly and the ones they pissed were consumers. Sega Saturn actually had great support and wasn't totally scratched for a long while, it's actually the best-selling Sega console in Japan ever and it got a lot of japanese games, it wasn't dropped there even when the Dreamcast released. Saturn saw WAY better support than the N64, everywhere and that's a fact.  The Dreamcast still has a cult following, so I don't think it pissed too many people when they were forced to drop it for financial reasons, it was just an awesome console and in no way it pissed their fans.
