Sega Comments on Revolution
« on: August 03, 2005, 10:09:40 PM »
The latest issue of Nintendo Power has an interview with Sega's president, but the best comments weren't in the magazine.

In September issue of NP, Sega of America president Simon Jeffery had an interview with the newly-redesigned magazine.  The content in the magazine isn't anything special, but the online version of the Q&A is a different story entirely.    


The online interview, which can be found at Nintendo's website, includes all of the questions asked of Jeffery in the print interview, along with a bunch more.  The talk touches base on all things Sega, from why Sega left the sports business to how Sonic is coming along these days.    


Nintendo Power also asked Jeffery about next-gen games, and possible Revolution development.  His answers?  Well, here are some snippets.    


We’re very interested in Revolution at the moment. We obviously haven’t made any announcements, but we, like other people, are talking with Nintendo about what Revolution will be, about potential opportunities on Revolution.    


We’re very excited about the prospects of Revolution, because, like we were talking about earlier, the Nintendo platforms have been great for Sonic and the classic franchises. We think Revolution can absolutely be the same. But I think you’re absolutely right. If Nintendo does choose a different model than Sony and Microsoft, then it might be very difficult for some third parties to adopt this three-pronged, multi-platform approach.
   


For the whole interview, pick up the latest Nintendo Power and/or click here.

Sega would be crazy not to release a Sonic game on the Rev. Oh, and this;

Quote

NP: This is kind of a wild idea, but it could be very cool. At E3, Nintendo announced that the Revolution would have the capability to download NES, SNES and N64 games. Would it be at all feasible, do you think, to partner with Nintendo and perhaps add the Sega Genesis to that list?

SJ: That’s a pretty wild idea. (Laughs.) You should talk to Nintendo about that.

The Genesis with the Revolution's downloads?  Not sure they would work that out.

Nice URL, www.nintendo.com/sega.  10-15 years ago someone would be shot if that was real.

Here's my favorite quote.  
Quote

A product like Sonic is very family-oriented. It’s all about entertainment rather than trying to be controversial or anything like that.
 Perhaps he's not aware of the new Shadow the Hedgehog game.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

That's Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic's mature-oriented angst-ridden numetal-listening cousin.  

It's completely different.

Yeah, one could say that Shadow is the blacksheep of the Sonic family.

Interesting interview. While I don't expect Nintendo Power to completely spin-free, they're finally willing to be a bit more honest.

it’s interesting how something like Panzer Dragoon Orta would have done on GameCube if it had come out on that versus Xbox. That’s an interesting scenario. I’m not sure what would have happened there


How about this one: Rave reviews, rabid fanbase, somewhat decent sales, Panzer series doesn't fade away into obscurity. Works for me!

Quote

NP: Why do you think that has come about? It wasn’t all that long ago when Japanese content did dominate the American market. Why do you think that’s changed?


Alternate answer: GTA and Halo. The kids love to run around shooting hookers and drive Warthogs.

Quote

. So I think one good thing for the market is that in three years’ time there are going to be less games coming to market. That’s got to be a good thing.


I hope he's right. Now if the prices don't go up, we'll be set.

Quote

Other than that it’s being built by Naka-san and his team, to be illustrative of what we expect next-gen to be, that’s pretty much all we can say right now.


Does a new Sonic game made by Sonic Team mean anything now? I hate to cut up on them, but they've been cold on consoles for a while....

On another note, why do "Professional 666"'s avatars always make me feel dirty?
Just some random guy on the internet who has a different opinion of games than you.

Yeah, crotch shots and ghosts licking young ladies are real family oriented.
