    Nintendo seems to have suffered the same problems as Sega beginning at the start of 1994. I'm not that knowledgeable in Nintendo's financials, but I will post this graph taken from here:

  2. Thanks - I corrected this to 'gained value'...

    Thanks - I corrected this to 'gained value' rather than 'lost value'. But it was just a terminology miss on my part. The point is still correct that this was bad for exporting. For example, a product...
  3. The exchange rate problems did cause Sega to...

    The exchange rate problems did cause Sega to start building up local manufacturing capabilities, but I don't think this started to appear until 1994 at the earliest. Even then, the most costly parts,...

    There's some mystery about what exactly was included on the financial reports (perhaps somebody with more accounting knowledge could chime in?). Sega reported non-consolidated financials, meaning it...

    Thanks!



    As I say in the article, I don't really think that's true. In 1995 Nakayama said that the Genesis was still very much part of their focus in North America. It's pretty clear from their...
  6. Sega’s Financial Troubles: An Analysis of Export Revenue 1991-1998

    Something new to share: I've acquired in-depth Sega revenue information for 1991-1998, including export revenues.

    The most interesting thing? Sega was in a serious bind at the end of 1993.

    How would you damage the label? You just have to unscrew the security screws on the back. Unless I'm not understanding something? Only Japanese carts have stickers over the screw holes.

    But it's...
  8. I doubt it... I mean, the shareholders only...

    I doubt it... I mean, the shareholders only really care about profits/growth forecast, and it just lowers morale among the employees who know it's not true, so there isn't much point. The company...

    VGChartz is simply not reliable for historic data. Where do their numbers come from? They don't cite any sources. They didn't even exist until 2005. Their historic data are just estimates or based on...

    Sega's numbers also kind of match what Nakayama said to the Japanese media around '96 or '97: the tie ratio for the Saturn in Japan was ~8 games per console, but in North America was only 3-4 games...

    Let's put into perspective how brutal this is for third party publishers.

    Let's say we have a standard 64 Mb game that retails for $60. Around 30% of the retail price is going to go to the...

    I don't have one, but I just googled it real quick: Are you playing via HDMI or on the unit itself? If on the unit, did you adjust the volume settings like this:

    There's no real precedent here, though. We're not talking about some random homebrew developer from outside Japan. Hidecade has connections at Sega who were willing to work with him to include Darius...

    You can see sprite overflow occasionally if you pause it, like here: https://youtu.be/HwcK-5n5o_w?t=687

    What part were you thinking exceeded sprite limits?

    Right - I think the concern people are having is that this is called a Top 100 list, but clearly it loses its validity towards the bottom since some games were only getting 1 or 2 votes. It's better...

    So how do we overcome some of the problems being brought up?

    Well, the best but most difficult way would be to have everyone rate every game they've ever played on a 1-10 scale. That solves the...

    Could you give some more info about how the lists were created? Did they poll readers? What was the methodology?

    Edit: I realized that Sega Magazin is on Retro CDN, so I looked myself. Here's how...
  18. Makes me think: Some of these are quite obscure,...

    Makes me think: Some of these are quite obscure, meaning they weren't released worldwide and/or don't come up in conversation much. I think Top 20 lists and such tend to not favor more obscure titles...

    Do it - call it Barone's List of Definitive Versions or something. People can't complain if you just post your personal recommendations (haha, if only).
  20. On that topic - is there a thread for this...

    On that topic - is there a thread for this already? If not, it would be great to put together a 'definitive version' list (I know there might be some disagreement on what should be included). And not...

    I'm not sure if you're questioning the authenticity of the list, or the taste of Japanese Mega Drive fans. If the former: let me assure you, the Beep! MD Reader Race is well-established and is the...

    The Streets of Rage 2 pirate ship is just regular tilting (of the sort seen at the bottom here for Gunstar Heroes).

    It combines column scroll with line scroll. It's not that nice of an example,...

    This talk about shoot-'em-ups got me curious so I consulted my favorite reference - the reader review ranking from the Japanese magazine Beep! Mega Drive. This is the best (probably only) good...
