They selling the arcades most likely means the 650 employees leaving aren't from the arcades as those would be absorbed on the purchaser.

Not necessarily.

Sure it isn't mandatory, but more likely than they are the ones being severed, even more when they are asking for voluntary without defining department.

Sounds like it does have to do with the Amusement division https://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/373303/Sega_Sammy_struggling_to_weather_the_pandemic_despite_strong_game_sales.php

That the problems are there I have no doubt, they even sold their arcades. But that the voluntaries will be from the arcades that was sold I don't think matches.

In the 2000s, rapper Nas (whom I love) battled his rival, Jay Z for the crown of best rapper. At one point, Nas wound up working with Jay Z after their rivalry ended. Eventually, Jay Z became a billionaire and married Beyonce. Meanwhile Nas (despite a net worth of $80m) is often in great debt. At one point, they were considered equals.

Nintendo is Jay Z meanwhile Sega is Nas.

This is the blackest thing you have ever posted on this site.

As a fellow black man I fully get it.

Fo shizzle.

Time for Sony to step in, and offer them a huge pay check, for Atlus.
(apart from Yakuza... and the Atlus RPGs.... sega doesnt do much for me)

Bolded: Agreed.

Since the merge I've always hoped that Sega and Atlus would team up to do a Yakuza game, but with Atlus RPG style. Still waiting for this...*crosses finger

It's normal during recession, by cutting human resource will help them a lot. It's not indication the company will be gone. They have other income beside gaming that will help them. Also they have made a deal to sell some of their arcade amusement place in Japan. 



Really hope M$ goes in for the kill and buys out Sega in it's entirety from Sammy.

I do not know how to feel about such a big company asking 650 employees that , feels a bit wrong.

Well yeah if they upfront get a good sum of money then i would be more fine with it.( my dad had samelike experience and he got 70000 eur)

First, ths is sad as a result of recent events obviously affecting their buisness but mostly the people involved in it. Though, kinda have to commend them for asking voluntary resigns from the workers than simply slashing with no regards like western buisness do.Anywoo, stop the ghoulish attitude expecting a rapid buy from any big video game company, it is even less likely than Bethesda. It also wouldn't have Microsoft as a major player in this battle is there to any in the future.
