Forums - Gaming Discussion - The Sega fanbase doesn't want console maker to go 3rd party (Microsoft/Sony/Nintendo)

What happened in 6th gen to Sega really devestated us but most of the Sega community including me don't want any of the big 3 to experience what we felt so much anguish, we felt hopeless it happen to us but we don't want anybody to feel what we felt, hope the big 3 Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft will always be around IE forever.

Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

Nothing lasts forever I am afraid!

Personally I find it odd that people have such emotional attachment to these platforms, just play them, enjoy them, don't stress about the small things.
End of the day, we use these devices to be entertained... So a different brand/sticker isn't the end of the world in my opinion.

I hope they all go 3rd party. Also, I only became a Sega fan after they went 3rd party. IMO their games are MUCH better these days.

I'm a diehard Nintendo fan boy to the extent that I actually bought (and enjoyed) the Wii U on launch day, so I'm probably biased, but I think Nintendo is the only company who innovates or differentiates their consoles from pcs (in ways that I care about), so I'd be disappointed if they stopped making consoles. Even as successful as the switch has been, and from a business stand point it males sense for their next console to just be an upgraded switch, I would be much more interested in seeing what other whacky things they've done R&D on.

Traditional Hardware (ie ps and xbox) will inevitably reach its limitation. Those companies will become subscription services just like Netflix, but for games. Their consoles will be manufactured as non proprietary machines or simply high end TVs.

Virtual reality and portable systems will become the hardware from which gamers choose, as far as console wars. Until then, the big 3 will remain as long as no one bigger than Microsoft enters the market.

I don't mind who stays and goes, as long as having flourishes. When Sega died, I took it really badly. I think i stopped gaming for almost two years. I loved Sega over Nintendo because Sega invested in New IP's and did experimental games. If you loved gaming, for me, Sega was the company.

PlayStation is my new Sega. This is what they have consistently done since PS1 days. My greatest fear is, subscriptions will become a thing, big blockbuster games will start to due, GaaS will grow, lots of smaller games which will be cheaply made and pushed out will become the main thing, but since I'm 40, I hope when this happens, I'll have moved on from gaming. That for me is when gaming will no longer be a hobby of mine.

Well. The world will keep turning regardless.

I would love a next gen dreamcast 2. Imagine blue stinger next gen or illbleed 2 and sonoc adventures 3. Amazing potential. Sadly it won't happen

Wish Nintendo would go 3rd party. I want their games on PC.
