After a series of less-than-stellar titles released by SEGA over the past few years, the House of Sonic is looking to turn over a new leaf. In an interview with Famitsu magazine, SEGA CEO Hajime Satomi hopes that the company could win back trust of its loyal fan base. According to Satomi, quality will be SEGA’s main priority.
“I’ve been talking to the employees about how we should start putting serious consideration into quality from this point on. Especially in North America and Europe, where it’s always been more of a focus on schedules, I believe that if we can’t maintain quality, it would be better to not release anything at all.”
At this year’s Tokyo Game Show, SEGA hopes to become a “brand” once again by starting with an announcement at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.
“Since we’re seriously considering quality, I can’t make that promise for the time being, but I believe we will announce something for home console at Tokyo Game Show… Sega in the ‘90s was known for its ‘brand, but after that, we’ve lost trust, and we were left with nothing but ‘reputation. For this reason, we’d like to win back the customers’ trust, and become a ‘brand,’ once again.”
This new mindset is a step in the right direction and I hope that SEGA will make good on its promise. Do you believe that SEGA could return back to its former glory? Sound off in the comments below!
