Forums - Gaming Discussion - Sega should not make a console comeback at the moment (amico/Atari VCS)

Hopefully everyone agrees, reaching out to other Sega friends that want console comeback , Amico is a mess they barely have any 3D games, and the Atari VCS is a huge mess. I'm Glad we are seeing what's going on with these old brands and it's not looking promising , the only positive that making a somewhat console is Valve's Steam Deck which has positive feedback, I don't want Any company Microsoft/Sony/Nintendo buying Sega I've been reminiscing the Sega of old . but we've seen that both Amico and Atari first party IP's suck ATM, while valve has Half Life series etc. noone wants Earth Worm Jim except those that grew up from it which are small group and that small group knows it's not enough for 300 Plus console buy. I'll keep a close eye on Steam Deck how big the sales will be , and I think Valve is bigger than Sega ATM , If Sega was as big as Valve maybe they can re-enter but right now is not the right time .

zero interest. like absolute zero.

SEGA titles are not enough for me to shell out for a new console from them.



They should never do it. Even if they had pockets as deep as MS. What made SEGA special then is not what they would sell now. SEGA would just be making another Xbox or PlayStation-like console. Same Assassin's Creeds. CoDs. Maddens. Same shit everyone gets. SEGA would be trying even harder to tap into the typical AAA market. People who say they want SEGA back in consoles want a long-past era to come back that can't.


The other option is we made this Android thing in a box it plays old SEGA games and some other shit. That market is trash. If I could making the industry like the 90s again I would but in order for SEGA to come back money aside they would have to be just like everyone else and either Sony or MS would need to drop out to prevent oversaturation.

I was hoping the new Earthworm Jim would be on Switch anyway. Keeping it exclusive to Amico was a mistake, considering what's going wrong with Amico.

It's not being made anyway. Aint shit has been done on that and likely won't.

It might have a chance if they actually went full-stop, balls to the wall. And by that, I mean have the thing in actual stores as well as Amazon etc. and throw the same amount of market tenacity behind it that they did for the Sega Genesis and Dreamcast.



if anyone buys them out, nintendo ironically has the best shot of making it work...

Based on what? What's makes Nintendo's strategy more viable for SEGA?

Sega does what Nintendon't , If you knew a Sega Purist thinking process throughout. I don't want Nintendo anywhere near Sega.
