  • Sega unveils new arcade hardware and mech game (video)

    Sega hasn’t given up yet on the arcade business but isn’t really investing a lot of resources into their gaming machines either. During the AOU, an arcade exhibition that took place in Tokyo last week, the company presented two new pieces of arcade game hardware that both are PC-based. Both RingEdge and RingWide use Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 2009 as the OS. Read More

  • Sega planning some sweet new arcade hardware?

    A few trademarks have been filed by Sega in regard to “stand alone video game machines, arcade game machines with built-in screens” and a few other terms, obviously relating to new arcade hardware. Good for you, Sega! Arcade machines aren’t the money printers they used to be (in the 80s) but a successful arcade-based franchise like House of the Dead can end up on consoles… Read More

  • Vinyl collection of Sega Genesis themes

    Oh man, remember the “Ultimate Genesis Collection” for Xbox 360 and PS3 that’s supposed to be here soon? Well if you preorder the Australian version (called the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection) you can get a free limited-edition vinyl album of theme songs from some of the games. Read More

  • SEGA cuts about 18% of staff

    Edge is reporting that SEGA has confirmed laying off 30 staff members due to “economic recession, harsh retail landscape, and the reality of business challenges to profitability,” according to a company spokesperson. Read More

  • Sega's Wii gun for House of the Dead: Overkill can't be got in America

    House of the Dead: Overkill comes out for the Wii next month, and it promises to be a violent, superfun adventure for all of five minutes. (Kidding!) That said, the experience will benefit from this Sega gun-shell, which is currently penned for release only in Europe and Australia. What, America is too immature to handle fantasy gun violence now?

  • SEGA releasing 40-game ‘Ultimate Genesis Collection’ for PS3 and 360 early next year, will cost $30

    You guys! SEGA will be releasing a title for the Xbox 360 and PS3 called “Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection” early next year for $30. The game will include 40 classic Genesis games, all upgraded to 720p, and will also feature unlockable content like “arcade games and interviews with the original game developers.” You gonna buy it? Hit the jump to see the full… Read More

  • Get your combination NES-SNES-Genesis right here


    I saw one of these things at PAX. It’s a great idea; after all, the actual hardware involved has become extremely small. You can fit an NES into a cartridge if you want to. So it makes sense to stick all the circuitry in a box, add some cartridge interfaces, make some ambiguous controllers, and sell it as a super-console. The one I saw was NES and Genesis, like this one, but there’s… Read More

  • Tokyo Game Show: Let's Tap – "a game even penguins can play" (2 videos)


    Sega’s Let’s Tap [JP] for the Nintendo Wii has one of the strangest taglines I have ever heard: “Even a penguin could play this game!”. Let’s Tap’s key point is the controls. Users are not supposed to hold the Wiimote in their hands but to tap its surface to play the game. It’s a pity Sega didn’t let me try it out but at least I could take a… Read More

  • Tokyo Game Show: Sonic World Adventure for the PS 3 (video)

    I am a huge Sega and Sonic fan. The new entry in the neverending series for the PS3 delivers more of the same gameplay-wise but at least it looks absolutely awesome. Check the video I shot at Sony’s Tokyo Game Show booth and judge for yourself. Read More

  • The Sega Vision is not what you think it is

    Our skepticism regarding the Sega Vision was well-placed. While the device is real insofar as you can buy it, it’s not Sega’s re-entry into video game hardware. The company told Unofficial RPG Site that the Vision is “primarily an MP4 video player with some basic games functionality, and not a new handheld gaming machine.” Furthermore, the device isn’t manufactured… Read More

  • So, is the Sega Vision handheld multimedia device real or not?

    Let’s play a game: is this thing, the Sega Vision, real or not? It looks pretty damn clunky to have been designed any time in the last five years, hat’s for sure. Be that as it may, the Register swears up and down that’s it’s real as can be, and that Sega plans to release it “early next year” in the UK. The system is being planned as a “PSP… Read More

  • Hands-on: Sega's new RAMBO Arcade game (It's so bad, it's awesome)

    My favorite game center in Tokyo got the new Sega arcade game “Rambo” (obviously based on the movies of the same name) in this week. It runs on Sega’s Lindbergh system board. And the gameplay is terrible, even for a lightgun shooter (I happen to be a big fan of this type of games). All you do is press one button and kill (almost) everything on the screen that moves. So no… Read More

  • Peter Moore: Day Two

    I’m getting all wrapped up in this interview with Peter Moore over at The Guardian. In today’s second part, he recounts his transition from the demise of the Dreamcast to his eventual move over to Microsoft. Seems he held some resentment against Sony PR for getting in the way of his Dreamcast plans. Read More

  • Dreamcast: It (was) thinking

    The Guardian has a pretty cool interview up with Peter Moore, president of EA Sports. Back in the day, he was head of Sega of America. In fact, he was the guy who killed the Dreamcast. As awesome as the Dreamcast was, maybe it’s a good thing it died; it served its purpose. It helped usher in the next-gen era of console gaming by supporting broadband capabilities. It could even be argued… Read More

  • 3 new Sonic Chronicles videos, now with terribly useless narration!

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=39541 My hopes for Sonic Chronicles are remarkably high. I mean, come on – it’s Sega’s attempt at recreating the glory that is Super Mario RPG with the Sonic cast, and it’s made by Bioware, the only company to make an RPG worth playing since 1997. Sega/Bioware released 3 new videos today: an introduction, a gameplay video… Read More

  • Sega releases awesome Thunderforce 6 promo clip

    http://blip.tv/play/ih_E5SKJ5FQ
    I love 2D-shooters and played all of Tecnosoft’s five Thunderforce games over and over. Sega has taken over development for part 6 of the legendary series and it comes out for the PS2 on October 30 (for $57). As of now, it’s unclear whether the game will be officially sold outside Japan as well. The promotion clip the company released today… Read More

  • Yes, that is Sonic the Hedgehog brandishing a broadsword


    Am I taking crazy pills? No, wait. I mean, is Sonic Team taking crazy pills? Because apparently they’ve made a Sonic game where you fight with a sword instead of running fast. Would you make a Street Fighter game where you collected coins and rode around on karts? How about a Ninja Gaiden game where you roll up a nice big katamari? Sonic and the Black Knight will provide Sonic fans with… Read More

  • Sega E3 2008 part deux: MadWorld for Wii

A gory game like this for… Read More

  • Sega E3 08: Alpha Protocol, Sonic Unleashed


    I’m not sure what it is about E3, but I’m slowly getting the itch to play me some RPGs and RTSs, but more on the latter later. Let’s rap about the former and first up is Obsidian’s (They created Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic II The Sith Lords and Neverwinter Nights 2) Alpha Protocol, which is an RPG with a fair amount of action gameplay thrown in to keep… Read More

  • Current top 10 of Akihabara's most expensive retro games (photo report)

    Here are the top 10 of the most expensive retro games currently sold in Tokyo’s Akihabara district (based on my research in about 10 stores). I took the picture above in the place I love the most on this earth, the Super Potato used game store in the heart of Akihabara. Believe it or not, I didn’t see anything cool gear-wise so this list must do as a “live” report from… Read More
