    SEGA profits tumble following lack of releases

    SEGA has released its results for the first quarter of the financial year, revealing a profit drop of 57.4 percent.

    During the period starting in April and ending June 30 the Japanese-publisher earned 88.3 billion ($858 million) in revenue, which was up slightly on the year before, but saw its net profits fall to 5.5 billion with half-year losses expected to come in at 7 billion ($68 million).

    The only title released in the quarter was Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, which only hit the Japanese market and sold 250,000 units. Older titles continued to sell to the tune of 1.7 million units with digital game sales making up around half of the income, but the bulk of the company's revenue came from its Japanese arcade businesses, especially Pachinko and Pachislot, which saw 47.5 billion ($461 million) in revenue and an operating profit of 13 billion ($126 million).

    With the year ahead promising Sonic Boom and Alien: Isolation, hopefully the company will manage to turn things around before the year's end.

    It's probably asking too much to see SEGA develop and localize more of its IPs.

    Maybe they should suck less... you know... like the old days? That just might work.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    I mean, Atlus has permission to use their dormant IPs but nothing's happened, so far.

    They have a fair number of releases coming soon so this won't be a problem. I've also applied at Sega so hoping I'll get an interview soon. ^^;
