    Sega doesn't care anymore?

    Post by supersonicdx on Mon Oct 19, 2009 5:05 pm

    WHY SEGA DOESN'T CARE WHEN SONIC SUCKS


    It's the money, stupid. And enough gamers buy crappy Sonic games for Sega not to care, according to an anonymous Sega employee.

    "Boss Rush was an anonymous blog, currently deleted, run by someone who actually turned out to be Sonic Europe employee Ben Andac (who is no longer with the company). Among other things, he clearly knew about the impending "Werehog" gimmick of Sonic Unleashed a full year before the game's trademark was even registered. On the subject of Sonic the Hedgehog games, Andac had this to say, as preserved by archive.org:

    Instead of using the re-structuring for good Sonic Team became complacent slaves of their earlier successes. Their primary goal now is purely business driven: to please the managing directors wth good ROIs; this is not so abnormal - it is a business after all - but they leave little room for creativity and originality in their particular brand of working practices. Clearly the blame does not lay squarely at Naka and Sonic Team's door - the direction of Sega (or rather Sammy) as a corporation; the narrow-minded short-term annual business-plan practices and development processes (i.e. tight development schedule) that demand yearly churning out of Sonic products all play a major part...

    So that's why Sonic is constantly in roughly three or four games a year, despite few of them being any good. To Sega, the Sonic franchise is now a money train the company is willing to ride all the way to shovelware station. As long as gamers keep buying lousy games starring Sonic, nothing is going to change."

    Well, I can't say I'm surprised. It is good buisness owning Sonic, but it sucks that they have to not care at all about what Sonic has become. Although at least we now know how little Sega cares about their official mascot (even though it's kind of obvious with many recent Sonic Games), to be honest, thinking in the perspective of a businessman, I could see why Sega would make crappy Sonic games; because they get the same money they would if they made decent games as they do when they make the crap ones. Do little work, get paid well. Sad, but true. Disscuss.

    I do admit that Sonic's gameplay is getting suckier as the years go by, but from a different perspective, Sonic gets closer to Amy every time a new game comes out. So I personally don't mind...TOO much.

    I'm a writer, plotline is very important in my book. But if Sonic starts shooting people, I'm going to be mad. (That's Shadows job)
    But has there been any update regarding Project Needlemouse? You know, the one that's supposed to redeem Sonic.

    Well, that depends on how you look at it. If there's no new updates yet, that could mean that they're actually taking they're time to make the game worth waiting for.

    i was not that keen on sonic when i found fully out about it,i agree,sega actualy doesnt care,andthats what i hate,ninteno for example know that their famous and still put heart ino games unlike sega,games with that have sonic in are whaen sega collarorated onwith another company

    i might respect sonic if he went back to advance but still had the same range of characters,all the latest sonic games for handheld wer BAD!
    the only one that actualy had a good range of characters was sonic chrons,which to be fair whas not that good,the best RECENT game with sonic in was super smash bros brawl



    *squeals*im gaeetin'' brawl too *screams like girl*


    oh and daze,whatch your spelling
