If Sega is smart (which they're not) they'd have thought this would've been a natural for the Xbox 1 or 360 because of all the MS consoles who have XBL mics that hardly ever get used.

And most ex-sega fanboys that I know all migrated to MS's consoles after Sega died.

Even the DS would've been better suited than than the PS2. With any luck, Sega will re-consider platforms when they release it elsewhere.

Why are you surprised?

We all know Sega isn't smart. They're a company that is famously anti-money.

Instead of releasing games on platforms that will obviously get them more sales, they instead release it for the platform that will get the least sales.

I think they're doing it on purpose.

I guess I really wasn't surprised. Sega is just feeding the beast that killed them.

I just don't understand the logic of wanting to waste money on desigining a controller simply for having a microphone, then there are 2 systems that already have them in droves. One is even built into the system itself!

Sega of Japan needs to have their heads checked.

Anyone think Seaman could be fun on the Wii?

You also have to take into effect that this is Japan, where they sold about 3 xboxes.

If i was sega why the fck would i release a game on a console(Xbox/360)
that has no fan base or instaled user base in the country that
I will sell the most of?

Seems like this is a pretty easy descion, Sega will make more
money selling this on the ps2 in japan, looks like a no brainer
to me, or just another anti sony rant.................... :roll:

I'm just irritated that they aren't putting this out on the DS. Like a previous poster said, the system has a mic built in! That coupled with the touch mechanics (instead of using a cursor) and enormous popularity in Japan, seems to make the DS a no-brainer.

That being said, I'll still buy it on the PS2 if they release it in America. What are the chances that they'll bring back Leonard Nimoy? :D

I'd be upset along with a lot of others if they didn't release something on the DS. There's just so much that can be done!

Leonard Nimoy is awesome.

360? Xbox? They want to actually sell the game in Japan. Besides, even in the US, the PS2 will sell more copies. They are making the right economical choice...even though they don't always.

Seaman was already on PS2 in Japan... so perhaps that's why they're doing PS2 again, because they already have the PS2 mic out and etc.

But I don't think they've made "the right economical choice". DS software sales are topping PS2 software sales, at least in Japan. Plus it just seems more suited to the DS market (and the system itself).

I agree 100%, it makes perfect sense to release it on the PS2 in Japan

The original xbox modded out is supposed to of been a emulator's wet dream. Unfortunately didn't have that luck with my ps and ps2. The DC model has some fun emus.

If sega didn't do the genny add-ons and fuck up the original saturn design and launch date. They would be still around in second place to sony ofcourse.

Some day though if I live long enough I'm getting a 360.
