Yeah, it's BS. They're the major share holder -- not the only share holder, and definitely not the 51% share holder.

I think you're going to see:
More Sammy games in Sega arcades (and there are a lot of arcades)
More games by Sammy, and maybe some cross-over stuff

That's about it for now.

Also, on this note -- Sammy make some pretty damn good games. I couldn't think of many other firms whom I'd rather have own part of Sega.

SSJDEMON: I agree with you 100%. Its M$'s fault for making such an easy console to exploit and Dreamcast is by far the best system to this day. The sad thing is.. the DC was eventually takin over by pirates that made self booting discs so easy to find and download. (so DC was unstable too but hey its better than xbox/gc/ps2 in my books). I kinda do feel bad about the 300+ dc games i have but hey what can you do..

Piracy isn't always bad, i do pirate at some stage, sure i do, but i aswell buy the
good games.

Heck, we don't have arcade's over here with new games from the NeoGeo, and
that's something really awfull because i want to play them, but no way i pay 500$
for a game which i play 1-4 hours (metal slug), yet i would insert coins, what
other option do i have left then pirate that "rom", and be able to play it?
Well that's their fault, they make me pirate it.

In the case of the Dreamcast, it was almost the same, i bought a JAP Console,
because i live in europe, and the PAL comes out way later, and PAL60 was not
100% a standard, after some time, european rights changed, and importing games
became illegal (i bought about 15), and at that stage, i didnt want to buy a Pal50
game, where i require a bootdisc, but i couldn't get imports anymore.

Heck, i didnt buy any games any more, but just pirated them.
Again i'd say its not my fault that i been driven towards piracy. After all this
dilemma's, i gotten used to "games for free", and now i collect them, heck, its
not like i sell them, and i own arround 10 Retail Xbox Games, to play on Live.

Without MS having set a Standard PAL60 nor Online play,
would have never gone back to pay for a game.

Now before the xbox PAL was like this:

1) If the Game comes out ever, it comes with atleast 6months delay
2) The Game has black borders on top and on the bottom of the screen, no this is
not 16:9 mode, although it looks like one, its just badly converted from NTSC to
PAL.

3) The Games run slower (About 5FPS)
4) You pay arround 10-15$ more per game, even though its old badly done.

Hell yes, this is what PAL used to stand for, and with MS, allmost all vanished
except the release dates, thats now 3-5Months delay. (still something to fix M$)

But overall, it was awfull to play Games in europe, and piracy made me enjoy
some games at all compared to the PAL version i was getting.

Piracy is sometimes the last resort to play a proper running version of a game,
at the time it comes out. If companies be any smarter or as smart as M$, you will
see that europeans almost don't import Xbox Games, because there is no much
need to do so anymore.

Thanks
