A new video by Sega was recently featured by IGN which gives us a glimpse of what the company has in store for the gaming community in the future. The video with the title The Future of Sega features Sega's Corporate Director Toshihiro Nagoshi discussing the core of what moves a person, dissecting what creates that perfect player experience citing the human eyes as the main component in what could be the company's main focus in creating their next generation of games.
Sega has been around since the 1960's, it's one of those company's who greatly benefitted from what was considered as the Golden Age of Arcade Games which started in 1978. By 1979, Sega's revenue was at $100 million from $37 million. But it never stopped there, after three years, the company was already at $215 million in 1982. It was then when the company ventured into the gaming console market which led to the release of the Sega Master System in 1985. The Master System was technically superior to Nintendo's NES but it was said that Tonka's poor marketing that led to the console's poor sales that never recovered even after the release of the Sega Genesis in 1989.
Sega became a casualty of the infamous console wars with their hardware selling poorly against the competition. By 2001 the company has shifted from hardware to a third-party software developer and the rest is history. Upcoming titles by Sega includes Sonic Forces
, Sonic Mania
, Total War: Warhammer II, and Football Manager.
