Sega psp games

SEGA has recently reported its results for the past fiscal year. Overall, they made a profit of 33.46 billion yen (around $330 million US), which is a 53% increase from the fiscal year before it. One of its top selling games was Aliens: Colonial Marines, having sold about 1.31 million units despite being critically panned by just about everybody. Thankfully, its most successful title was Sonic & All-Stars Racing: Transformed, which sold 1.36 million units and was much better received critically. Its other big seller was Phantasy Star Online 2, which had 2.5 million registered users. The money made from the game’s paid items supposedly exceeded SEGA’s expectations.

In the US and Europe, Football Manager 2013 and their official Olympic game London 2012 managed to sell 940,000 copies and 680,000 copies respectively. Yakuza 5 sold about 590,000 copies in Japan. SEGA still hasn’t made an announcement about whether it will be released internationally, though.

SEGA also revealed its plans for the new fiscal year. In their report, SEGA stated that they will bring 7 SKUs to the Wii U and PS3, 4 SKUs to the Xbox 360, 6 SKUs to the 3DS, 2 to the PSP, 5 to the PlayStation Vita, and 11 SKUs to the PC. In addition, they’ve announced that they plan to “make [their] game software compatible with the next-generation consoles”. Hopefully, we’ll learn more details about that right around E3.

What games are you hoping SEGA will release this year? I’m hoping for a Rhythm Thief sequel, Castle of Illusion on the Wii U and a Skies of Arcadia remake. Give us your thoughts in the comments below.

    Jet Set Radio Future HD. It’d make me a happy man.

  • A new jet set radio game. Or remake jet set radio future.
    I really really want it.

  • I Just need Jet Set Radio Future for anything, & Phantasy Star Online 2 for Vita

  • I HOPE a new Project Diva is within the 5 Vita games. Valkyria Chronicles 4 wouldn’t hurt either…

    • Valkyria Chronicles 4 better be for the PS3 or I’m going to be pissed.

    • Actually I expect Sega to do PS3/PSVita cross-platform games like Namco did with One Piece PW2. Yakuza and Valkyria Chronicles are the most likely contenders.

    Shining Force 3

  • Imo, SEGA is doing exelent. Cant wait for what they will bring to the table.
    Project diva F for ps3 in europe would be a great start !

  • Now if only Sega of America would move it’s butt and finished localizing PSO 2 for US & EU and release it already! I play on JP servers and it’s a great online action rpg (it has room for some improvement in some aspects) but its damn fun.

  • Compatible with next gen platforms? God I hope this just doesn’t mean that streaming crap.

    I hope it’s upgraded ports!

    A Yakuza Super Collection for the PS4 all running at 1080p native with upgraded assets and good AA with a stable framerate (whether it be 30 or 60) would be amazing.

    I’m still waiting for Shenmue HD though 🙁

  • Crazy Taxi, Shenmue I amd II

    skies of arcadia for 3DS, a US release of the Phantasy Star Generations remakes that were on PS2 would be great. Jet Grind Radio and Jet Set Radio Future are getting a breath of new life these days. People online are paying a lot of attention to them. My bro-in-law keeps blubbering JSRF as well. I owned and played both and thought they were awful. Awful controls, awful level design, awful frame-rate, awful music. sorry, but I can’t get myself to like them.
