They brought themselves to their own demise, nearly ten years of shit games from their flagship franchise (Sonic), plus focusing too much on their eastern audience and putting the western market on the back burner.

It's funny because my point is proven by looking at the franchises mentioned in the press release; those are ones that do well in the west.  They could of had something with Yakuza, but poor marketing is to blame for mediocre sales in the west.

Could also be traced back to the fact that they rarely listen to what the fans have to say.  When they do, they do well, but the entire company hasn't caught onto the trend it seems.

sega do listen to fans more than any other publisher...thats what got them in this mess. sega are stuck in the 90s (this is how i like it) sadly nobody else does.

but yeah sega rarely release good games anymore. platinum games are pretty much the only sega games that genuingly are great (yet they never sell well)...sadly this could mean the platinum games publishing deal might be cancelled :(

thats about the only thing they wont listen to. i think its something much deeper than just releasing shenmue...i think they think shenmue is cursed thats the only reason why they wouldnt have release dit already.

as far as listening to fans they do it all the while. they constantly localise yakuza even though it consistantly sells terribly. no other publisher would go to the effort of localising such a complex game that never sells (yakuza 4 and of the end didnt even reach top 40 in the uk) no other publisher would give platinum games that sort of freedom either, EA, activision and capcom would never release an insane game like beyonetta tbh

People had to fight for Yakuza 2 and 3 though didn't they?  I know they did for two, but I don't remember if they did for 3 or not.

I see your point though.  I don't know why they're so reluctant to release Shenmue, I would buy ten copies and make everyone I know buy ten copies, not even joking.
