    Sega has plans to lay off some workers at Sega Networks, the company's western mobile division. However, they have not confirmed how many employees they would let go.
    The company has stated it wants to focus more on famous IP based games made with their own internal studios. They also want to bring more popular Japanese games to the west.

    Meh. The only thing keeping Sega alive is purely nostalgia.

    Waaaaaaaaaaay to expensive and waaaaay too risky to do it now.

    And that's bad news, i hope the rumored PC ports are still underway.

    They need to make a Sega CD PC.

    Hopefully it be a leach that attaches to my current PC and tries desperately to expand the life of my PC, but ultimately hinders it because no one wants FMV games.

    Sega is almost at its limit to self-destruct so please do not mention that lump they made for Sega Mega Drive (or Genesis, if you're in US). I loved Sega back in the 90's but now it's just a really embarrassing gaming company. Sega has all these awesome franchises Jet Set Radio, Outrun, Altered Beast, Streets of Rage, Crazy Taxi, Gunstar Heroes, Comix Zone, Ecco the Dolphin and Golden Axe but yet they only focus on developing Sonic games. Not really looking forward to Sonic Boom 2. :(

    But the Sega CD itself has a whole lot of potential.

    Dreamcast had more potential.
