    Nakayama's hair aside (it's a classic Japanese 'barcode' hairstyle)...

    I like this part of the interview:



    (in case it's not obvious: "flipper" was the Japanese term for pinball)

    By "increased costs," I meant the costs of developing games (e.g., the greatly increased number of staff, the increased time). I was pointing out factors that were really out of the hands of Sony, to...

    I mean, DS9 is still an episodic series, so it's got all of the negatives (?) associated with that: different writers, inconsistencies, lots of filler, etc. A lot of the initial 'overarching...

    Interesting questions.

    One goal I have in posting translations like these is to hopefully move people away from the kind of hindsight-biased armchair theorizing that dominates any discussion of...

    Will you please actually read the article?

    It clearly says the development of the SH-2 occurred after Sega decided to adopt the SH. It then proceeds to describe the Hitachi staff designing the...
  7. Newly Translated 1993 Interview with Yuji Naka, Yu Suzuki, and Kan Naito

    I've just translated this interview which some of you might like. Especially good is Yuji Naka making veiled negative comments about Phantasy Star III.

    Enjoy!

    One reason I translate this articles is so we don't have to rely on what you think :D

    That was years later. The SH-2 was essentially designed by Hitachi specifically for the Saturn.

    Thanks - I hadn't listened to this yet. Although Ed's spreading mis-information at 56:43: "Originally, those [SH-2] CPUs were used in rice cookers!" :rofl: Not quite...

    No need to rely on magazines notorious for writing fiction - we have the actual time frame for Sega's adoption of the SH from the man that created it, Shunpei Kawasaki:

    Well, the 32X was entirely a concession to SOA because they didn't think the Saturn was marketable in the US. The deal was that SOA would handle the 32X and Japan the Saturn, and Nakayama pledged a...

    Thanks for the comments, Barone.

    To further put his comments in context: What Sato is saying about developers not being ready for the shift was also said by most of the third parties. As the story...
  14. *Must Read* New Hideki Sato Interview on the Saturn

    A new online magazine devoted to Sega came out in Japan the other day called Beep21 (by the same people behind the famous Beep! print magazines of the 80s and 90s).

    The first issue features some...

    The Yakuza series is very popular in Japan. As in, most regular people are familiar with it, which is more than can be said for nearly all of the titles on that chart. It's essentially Sega's version...

    Yeah - not sure what the two previous replies were about :daze:

    The screws are under the label (as I think the OP knows). There aren't clips like on a smartphone. The OP is asking how to remove...

    That was a lot of text to show that you don't really know anything about Sega's current business :)

    Just the monthly reminder for Sega-16 that modern Sega does a lot more than Sonic games, such as...

    A new video from Zetaman - and a very interesting one, at that:
