Thank you Sega for publishing Alpha Protocol

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

A Sega handheld? A really cheap one, like a 100$ handheld that is the spiritual successor of the Gameboy? I don't know, any guess is as good as this :))))

Sega doesn't know how to make a good Sonic game for ages, but their other stuff are pretty good actually 

Lets talk about SEGA on a global level.

Yakuza is gaining popularity to the point where Yakuza 6 sold on par with Japan. Yakuza 6 has not even sold 1 miliion copies.

Persona, which is not even developed by SEGA, is a key IP.

Sonic? - Global brand power but quality issues.

Bayonetta? - They don't invest in it.

All SEGA's classic IP are auctioned out ( Streets of Rage, Panzer Dragoon, )

What IP's are you talking about?

You know Sega's biggest franchise is Football Manager, right ? You didn't mentioned it.

I think if it's a new console/device, I would buy it. Sega has now enough quality titles/IP as a publisher to make its own console.

No they don't. SEGA does not even have a half the star power they did during their prime. They cant even make a above good Sonic game

They own Atlus.

Persona + Shin megami Tensei (SMT) + Etrian Oddesey + Catherine.

Sega itself..... is basically just Yakuza games atm.

Still they have enough IP, if they wanted to they could make a half decent attempt at a console.

I am aware that they own Atlus. Just pointing out the SEGA's first multi million seller in awhile is not their own creation.

To make a console requires strong global IP's. They can't sell consoles off Persona and whenever decent Sonic game they got in store.

That seems unlikely. FM sells about 1 million a year at most.

The Total War franchise is surely bigger than that.



I'm going to assume it's a Dreamcast Classic Edition until further notice.



Love and tolerate.

That is not revolutionary. NEW technology.

that would be a super dissapointment.
If thats the case, then shame on Zenji Nishikawa for reporting it as a "revolutionary scoop".
