speaking of Dreamcast Collection vol 1, check out the thread I started in the lounge, its on a special 1 day offer on play.com at £3.99!!viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4483
personally I don't think they should put Shenmue on a DC collection, least of all because both games would probably take up one disc, seeing as they each took up 4 discs on the DC!! they should release them on XBLA though, and I can't wait for JSR, I just hope to god they don't fuck up anything like the wrong music or no online, Sega seem to be some what retarded when it comes to finally answering Dreamcast owners prayers, they seem to just cock them up on purpose!! I'm looking at Soul Calibur port and Crazy Taxi Specifically lol
Well, when the consumer is not rising up, then they can cock-slap (
) us all day long.
Its basic economic:)... If we as concumers complained about their products, then thinks might change! By buying there product, then we are kinda woting for it! Its not like they put their company on the line by releasing a new sonic game every 12 hours. But as long as they can puke up cheap titles for big proffit, then they will keep doing it. Sega is not in the buisness to satisfy die-hard fans, they are in the buisness to make money!
These days everything is very mainstream! Sega does not have a living console now, so the need for pushing these kinds of titles is even more important.
If Nintendo became a third party developer, they would drop mario in a hearbeat if it was necesarry.
Cause Mario, wich is the flagship of Nintendo would not have a sentimental value to the consumer.
But since Mario is good comersial for Nintendo consoles, then they will keep making these games, even if they lost some small sums of money on it.
(not that mario is bad buisness or bad games, i like them alot)
Same shit is with Shenmue! Why would they promote Shenmue on a 360 if they can make twise the profit on Sonic the hedgehog 43? They do not give to shits about us Shenmue fans, and I understand them very much! If I was a capitalistic Sega CEO then i would not make Shenmue if the risk/profit ratio was high! I would put the money in the pocket, make Sonic games, and pray that the consumer would keep letting me control the market.
