    Pretty much the same way it's pronounced when you boot up Sonic 1.

    Exactly the same here, I think those Amerikan's are just trying to be cool [​IMG]




    But of course, they are not... (except for a couple which are worth a mention...)

    Fun to be Finnish - we actually pronounce Japanese stuff right naturally - If you read my message and do not see millions of SEGA logo videos, enable your flash and start listening... and that is just how Finnish also would read out loud text "SEGA"

    I would link the frikin' 90's Finnish commercial of "16-BIT SEGA!" (as it said) to prove my point but that would be boring.

    I pronounce it Seh-Gah, though there IS a bit of an "ay" sound.

    Say-gah but I suppose that's because I'm American and I also grew up on the original Sonic games and that's how it's pronounced in the opening XD

    Any way other than the way it's said in any intro is incorrect.
