Well, they chose the PSP. That's their mistake.
It's not a mistake, it was a reasonnable strategic decision.
their last Shining on DS have been an enormous failure. same thing for their 3DS titles, even Sakura wars 5 on Wii was a failure. Except for Sonic fan, the public of Sega is not on Nintendo consoles.
Shining is not big enough for PS3/360/Wii U and PSvita is not enough popular for now.
PSP was the only viable option, especially because Sega have a very big fanbase on PSP (Yakuza/Miku/PSP/Valkyria)
1. That should be an instant red flag to SEGA that substance is more vital than appearance,
I don't want games with poor graphic, I never buy a game on new gen with PSX graphic more than 20€, except if their is an enormous collector edition.
Actually if Segafan love sega games, It's because Sega always made High production games. the Shining force 3 graphique were stunning. Valkyria Chroclicles is the most beautiful tactical RPg ever (and one of the best). Shenmue was one of the most beautiful games of his time.
Sakura wars 3 and 4 had stunning graphics
Shining force and Force 2 were the most beautiful tactical RPG in their time.
Shining Tears and Wind are some of the most beautiful 2D games from the PS2.
Sega stopping doing very beautiful games, will be the loss of their soul.
And the subtance of Sega games is also very big, the GBA/PS2 shining were very good in their style (hack n slash). Anarchy reign, Sonic generation/Sonic colors, Valkyria Chronicles, Miku, Rythm thief, platinium games and Yakuza series too.
Sega just nearly always made high production solid in graphic and gameplay, Sega not doing this will just be Sega anymore.
They already said it, they don't want to make low cost production, it's not their politics.
SEGA is much larger and well known than the company that created/published Agarest. They have more revenue from their long established reign
but they also have much more cost, don't forget it.
Even Namco bandai hesitate to release some of the Tales of out from japan.
But It's stupid to talk of it. You are talking like a fan who would love to see his series in US at any cost. I am talking like a marketer.
By a marketer view, Sega decision is pretty logical judging the size of the licence if they still want to make high prod.
Let's Stop talking about it, I'll never agree with you for it
