I'm just going to leave this here in case anybody wants to read up on the purchase. http://www.segasammy.co.jp/english/pdf/release/20130918_index_e_final.pdf

It's nothing to get upset about yet, people. If anything, be glad Index didn't go under, taking their properties with them.

True, but let's hope nothing gets taken to the ground like another IP we know Sega owns...

It could definitely be worse, but I'm going to remain skeptical about this until proven otherwise. I just find it really hard to believe any other company is just going to leave Atlus games to Atlus totally free from intervention.

Positive thoughts, Huntereb! Positive thoughts.

They can bank off these, if they're smart. The fact that they've created a subsidiary for Atlus's properties is a really good sign.

Oh yeah, maybe they'll go to Nintendo for help on these IPs, just like they did with other one they own... Thanks for making me feel better.

I don't care about your feelings. But ya know, hedgehogs have an awfully short life span to begin with.

I think sega will be smart enough to know that you dont fix what isnt broken. Sonic should have died 10 years ago.

Persona and SMT will be fine they're popular enough that'll still be localized/developed.
On the other hand don't expect games like Etrian Odyssey to be localized. Haha

You need go back and look at the numbers, EO4 sold much better than any of the previous entries, no doubt thanks to digital distribution. Pretty much on par with Persona 4 Arena and the PSP Persona remakes in North America. Plus, it hasn't been released in Europe yet.

Ignorance sucks =\

Yakuza latest games aren't being localized because Sega thinks there isn't enough interest because lack of sales.
Did a quick search and EO sells worse than Yakuza in the West and now that Sega Owns the IP I wouldn't count on it being localized haha
Oh and Persona 4 Arena sold 3 times as much in NA than EOIV.

Perspective. Using that sort of non-logic, nothing will ever top GTA V by today's industry standards. Not the best way to approach any market.

Don't be mad just because you can't get it up because the gum gum fruit *bleep*ed you up, rubber wang.

This isn't that bad. Gotta say, though, I was hoping it'd be Nintendo.
