Re: Sega reports large losses for previous year - planning layoffs
 

Its pretty easy to predict what will happen when independent studios get absorbed, there is a well established precedent in the gaming business.

1. Emphasize obscene profits at the expense of quality
2. Close the studio when HQ decides to cut costs.


Yes, its very possible that SEGA's managers are retarded, but its jut as possible that they are not.
I'm pretty sure they had good reasons to buy OOO. I'm also sure it wasn't cause OOO was competition. So it would be weird if they shut it down so quickly.

Also, something I read on SEGA's business strategies section of their homepage: "In the toy sales, mobile phone and PC content and animated films businesses, the Group must reinforce these operations, mainly by listed subsidiaries."

But still I wouldn't be surprised if OOO was forced to pick only one game and shut down the other projects. (if not worse...). I have no clue which game gives them most profit.

Who knows...
