The Football Manager series has dominated the market. It has become the only real football management sim left (occasionally there is a new one or two from SI Games’ competitors, but it’s becoming increasingly rare). Some say this is a bad thing as it means that SI Games and SEGA don’t need to do much every year to keep their illustrious fanbase. The question is; have they got complacent with   Read More ...

SEGA today detailed Sonic Generations. The Japanese outfit claim that Sonic Generations will celebrate Sonic’s 20th Anniversary, but given recent Sonic efforts we could be forgiven for being a bit sceptical on that one. Regardless, the game will have both the old-style chubby but awesome Sonic and the new lanky Sonic as playable characters. Basically, the story is that a new power creates time holes which pull Sonic and his   Read More ...

The latest delay “allows for the team to continue   Read More ...

Expect Tag Team battles and a special Battle Royal mode. Apart from that Japanese video up   Read More ...

SEGA has confirmed that Virtua Tennis 4 is coming to the Wii and 360, not just the PS3. The company only announced the PS3 version last year, leading many to suspect that Sony had secured title exclusivity for once. However, that has proven not to be the case. Virtua Tennis 4 will apparently support the Move, MotionPlus and Kinect, as well as actual controllers for the rest of us. Expect   Read More ...

SEGA has confirmed that they will be publishing another Platinum Games title. The publisher has so far published all of the developer’s games: MadWorld, Infinite Space, Bayonetta and Vanquish. Current rumours and the usual tweets suggest a sequel for Bayonetta is on the cards, but we have given up trying to work out the minds of those crazy Japanese developers so we’ll just wait and see.

SEGA has announced Binary Domain, a brand new PS3/360 game from the creator of Yakuza and other SEGA series’. Toshihiro Nagoshi is making it, and apparently it’s a squad-based shooter set in 2080 Tokyo. Robots are invading and things are getting a bit wobbly.

SEGA has deleted all the scores from the Sonic 4: Episode 1 leaderboards because of some good for nothing cheaters. Naughty (and impossible) times of 0 seconds have been deleted, as well as 99999990 scores. Disappointingly though, all the legitimate results have also been destroyed. Furthermore, it appears that there’s nothing SEGA or anyone can do to prevent the devious hackers from reposting the dodgy scores to the leaderboard.
