    Wow, TGS will totally suck donkey balls this year. Hopefully SONY third party studios initiative will compensate on the localization front.

    $#@! $#@! FUCCCCCCCCCCK.

    Sega completely sucks these days.

    Well, at the very least, it wasn't Nintendo. Although that would give more of a reason to get the Wii U.

    Hopefully Sega ends up being acquired by Sony and Naughty Dog ends up re-making Shenmue.

    I don't know why people are freaking out, what other games does Atlus make that don't get localized? Sega is bringing diva over, only real argument I see is Phantasy Star Online 2. As far as the games go, I highly doubt they would butcher up all of atlus's profitting series, most of the time when things like this happen the publisher lets the developer do it's thing. Deepsilver with SaintsRow4 for example.

    I only play persona games from them (and catherine which was awesome) and now I fear SEGA will be responsible for that franchise's death

    I would love nothing more than to see Naughty Dog re-make Shenmue, that would be epic beyond all imagination! (but they have to leave the Sega Saturn console in the game!)

    hmmm...hope restored??
    Naoto Hiraoka, the head of consumer software for the Atlus game brand, issued a statement on Wednesday to assure fans that business will continue as before. SegaSammy Holdings confirmedearlier in the day that Sega will form a wholly owned subsidiary to take over the operations of Index Corporation by November 1. Index owns and manages Atlus, a former independent company and the current brand of games such as Etrian Odyssey, Shin Megami Tensei, and Persona.Hiraoka acknowledged that the Atlus brand will become part of the Sega Sammy Group (specifically, the new subsidiary SegaDream), but added that the entire consumer game unit will remain focused on developing titles for future release. He said that his brand has maintained a good relationship with Sega from before, and added that he thinks the current potential for business synergy is very high. He specifically highlighted Sega's strong distribution network as beneficial going forward.
    He apologized for causing fans to worry, asked for their continued support, and asked them to look forward to further developments from Atlus.
    Since last year, Hiraoka has also been the president and CEO of Atlus U.S.A., Inc. in North America.

    ^You know what's funny about that?
    a gaf post said this yesterday:
    an official release soon to follow saying "its all good, business as usual"
    then two months later, everything is dead
    And the official PR release part of that has come true

    I knew Sony wouldn't buy them, they don't give a $#@! for RPGs anymore. Couldve been worse though, Nintendo couldve bought them.

    Bunch of assumptions for failure yet no evidence. The persona team will still develop the persona series, you guys are acting as if SEGA is MAKING persona now.
