If you’re bored over the next couple of days and fancy a long read to occupy your time then IGN’s recent article on the ‘History of Sega’ could be well worth the read. Clocking in at a whopping 11 pages long the retrospective goes into great length explaining a great number of things about the companies past with pictures and interviews from industry insiders.
Covering all of Sega’s life from it’s early years IGN show some consoles that predate the Master System before detailing their rise to power, how Sega, like Nintendo, let a chance of working with Sony on a new consoles slip from their fingers and their ultimate demise.
IGN are especially grim at the end of the article describing Sega as “not dead, but they may be in shackles” citing the lack of quality games in recent years after a number of industry legends left the company like Yuji Naka and Yu Suzuki…
…Yu Suzuki who still works at Sega that is, as reported on here by TSSZ News. IGN have repeatedly claimed the former AM2 head honcho has left Sega despite a very recent news story to the contrary and refuse to correct their error. IGN also fail to mention Sega’s rise and continued success as a publisher.
