Does this mean Xbox is going to buy SEGA? That would be insane!

Microsoft would have to pay north of 5 billion, it's not happening. The above rumor is even more ludicrous.

I highly doubt this rumour is true as well but didn't MS buy Mojang for 2.5 Billion and the only known game they had is Minecraft? If they pay $5 billion for Sega and Altus, it doesn't sound too far fetched to me...

This is a interesting rumor. I would not actually mean that SEGA is being bought just that would be handling the console marketing/dealings in Japan. Think how tencent handles Switch for Nintendo in China.



This is dumb and desperate. Why not just try to get Nintendo more appeal in the west by naming it Atari? SEGA has not made a console in 20 years. An entire generation grew up without them. Nothing says SEGA console-like Halo as a launch title that is also on Xbox One. So this just sounds stupid.

They spent what, 2-5 billion on Mojang for Minecraft. They would absolutely buy SEGA if they were that cheap. And they've been talking about acquiring Japanese studio (s).

Microsoft purchased Mojang for a company wide investment nothing related to their video game department, Sega has no mainstream appeal outside of the video segment so an acquisition of Sega would be for their video game department only and for that price it makes no sense.

Microsoft has a Market Cap of 1.4~ Trillion.

They are 280x larger than that 5~ billion dollar number.

To put that in perspective, Microsoft's market cap is greater than Australia, Mexico, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia or Turkey's GDP.

Just food for thought.

Megaton if true.



To people talking about MS buying SEGA. It's not happening. SEGA is OWNED by Sammy Corp. SEGA is a Subsidiary. Unless MS wants to get in Pachinko machines.

If anyone were to buy SEGA, it would be interesting to see the price and whether they buy SEGA Sammy as a whole or if SEGA would be sold off by itself.

Also people pointing out that MS bought Mojang for 2.5B, also remember that they simply figured they’d make more annually from owning Mojang than that 2.5B would collect annually in interest. You know a company has just stupid money when they are making moves like that.



That would contaminate or taint the SEGA name real badly in Japan. Those people there have a hard time forgiving the littlest little dumb things people might do, even with mega popular Japanese people as well as brands. Something like this would be considered siding with the enemy. Dumb thing to do if they want to keep their good graces with their Japan fans.



I saw this rumor myself a few days ago. A Sega youtube channel also mentioned the possibility that the Sega June 4th hardware announce is Microsoft related. Would be a smart move by MS to sell the system in Japan, Japanese consumers are hesitant to buy non-Japanese products, with the main exception being the popularity of the iPhone. By letting Sega sell it instead, they overcome that hurdle. Such a partnership would likely also mean that Sega games would all release on Xbox, including Atlus stuff, maybe even some timed exclusives, which could help to sell the console in Japan. Would Xbox light up the Japanese sales charts if this is true? Maybe not, but I think it could allow them to at least match the success of 360 in Japan (1.6m), if not exceed it somewhat.
