    You can't just reject Console Wars when its obviously wrong and then accept it when it suits your needs:



    Harris interviewed Al Nilsen, so how can that be?

    And was I trying to discount...
  2. Melf, let me start by saying that my only...

    Melf, let me start by saying that my only interest is to get the history right. I wish this conversation could focus more on the facts (or the closest alternative) as we know them, from all of the...
  3. Yes, it was developed FOR the west, as has been...

    Yes, it was developed FOR the west, as has been stated numerous times by Naka and co. That's why SoA and Katz were involved in the development from such an early stage. Obviously Kalinske marketed it...
  4. Yet another example of the widespread...

    Yet another example of the widespread misinformation in this community that some of us are trying to correct. This isn't even debatable. Katz didn't like Sonic (neither did Kalinske or anybody else...
  5. This is a very interesting topic and I wish there...

    This is a very interesting topic and I wish there was more discussion about it. The problem is that, as I said, nobody else has ever even mentioned this Sega/Sony partnership aside from Kalinske. I...

    Sonic 1 was the most popular MD game. Also on the top 10 list are both Shining Forces, Puyo Puyo, Super Monaco GP, and Landstalker. Aladdin might be on there but I can't remember.
  7. That comment was made facetiously. Of course...

    That comment was made facetiously. Of course Kalinske deserves credit. He deserves the credit due a brilliant marketer who is hired to sell a system and does his job exceptionally well. He deserves...

    Uh, then I guess it would be Sega of Japan that deserves all of the credit since they were ultimately responsible for the success of the system internationally. They provided funding to division...
  9. The situation was about as different as it could...

    The situation was about as different as it could be. Japanese gamers were obsessed with RPGs. It seems like 90% of game coverage in Famitsu during the time was of RPGs. They still hadn't caught on in...
  10. That kind of comparison means nothing. A company...

    That kind of comparison means nothing. A company is content when it is making money and developers are content when people are buying their games. The MD and its games sold consistently during its...

    I don't think they gave up on it. I think it was very successful and appealed to the target market: late teens/early 20s males that were hardcore arcade/action gamers. 3.58 million units might not...

    Translated from the book The Game War by Eiji Ooshita originally published in 1993:

    "The name was changed from Mega Drive to Genesis because "Mega Drive" was a term that invited misunderstanding....

    Nintendo/Square completely dominated the market in Japan from the NES days. Nintendo's monopolistic practices caused many stores to not even carry MD games. Sega could never compete on the RPG front...

    Melf, you have Kalinske-itis. From MD Collected Works (p. 17):



    And Nakayama has also said that Katz was only appointed in the position temporarily until he could get someone more suited for...
  15. Sigh. Once more this uninformed...

    Sigh. Once more this uninformed Kalinske-perpetuated myth. Nakayama made it clear from day 1 that Sega's focus for the MD was on the foreign market. That's what led to Kalinske even being given the...

    I meant juvenile as in undeveloped & simplistic (which it is). The debate is much more complex and definitely not black and white.

    Again, for his point to be at all valid it has to be shown that...

    This is a more specific issue since certainly not all repros are of fan translations (but some are).

    The arguments presented in that video are juvenile and miss the point:

    "People who sell repros suck! They profit off of the creativity of others!!!"

    But illegally downloading ROMs is OK?

    "Yeah, at least then nobody is profiting."

    According to Wikipedia, in 2007 he publicly released the PC-6001 version adapted to run on Windows as freeware, and in 2008 somebody ported it to real PC-6001 hardware.
