Sega Profits Cut in Half in Latest Quarter, Lack of Software Releases

gamrFeed - 5 hours 24 min ago

Sega's profits have been cut in half in its first quarter of the fiscal year, which ended June 30,2014. The lack of software sales is the main reason for the drop. Sega released only one title during the quarter, Persona Q Shadow of the Labyrinth. The game was only released in Japan and has sold 250,000 units to date.

During the quarter Sega's revenue was ¥88.3 billion ($858m). Profits dropped 57 percent year-over-year to ¥5.5 billion ($53.5m). Sega was able to sell 1.7 million games at retail, despite the lack of releases.

Sega's game division reported revenue of ¥21.4 billion ($208 million). Roughly half of that came from digital sales. The division also reported losses of ¥282 million ($2.7m).

Sega's Pachinko and Pachislot division helped pick up the lower game sales. The division made up more than 50 percent of the revenue with sales of ¥47.5 billion ($461m). Profits for the division were at ¥13 billion ($126m).

There will be no new release of an EA NCAA Football game this year. The man most frequently blamed for this is a former UCLA basketball star named Ed O'Bannon, who had the temerity to sue the NCAA and EA for using his image without asking permission and without negotiating to pay for it.


Call of Duty: Ghosts ‘Nemesis’ DLC Revealed - This time we're going 'small-scale'

Just Push Start - 6 hours 7 min ago

ghosts nemesis showtime 1

The fourth and final map pack for Call of Duty: Ghosts is set to drop and gamers won’t have to wait long to try it out for themselves.

Dubbed ‘Nemesis’, the fourth map pack for the Call of Duty: Ghosts season wraps up the quartet of packs spelling out ODIN (Onslaught, Devastation, Invasion, and Nemesis). Each of the four multiplayer maps offered are small-to-medium scale, offering players more of the run and gun experience they’ve come to expect with Call of Duty. This season is wrapping up just in time for gamers to get their fill before Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches later this November. Nemesis follows the structure of the previous three packs by offering four new multiplayer maps as well as an extra chapter for Extinction. Nemesis is set to arrive August 5th, 2014 first on Xbox One, with other platforms to follow.

  • Goldrush: is set in an abandoned gold mine in the Southwest United States, where an intricate network of cavernous tunnels and perilous shafts create the ideal setting for medium to long range combat; while two mine carts race along the abandoned tracks offering players a fast way to traverse the map. Players who complete the unique field order on Goldrush will unleash a howling pack of wolves that will descend upon their enemies.
  • Subzero: drops players into a frigid Canadian submarine base that has been hastily evacuated, with control room, submarine pen and research facilities all left eerily empty. Built around the traditional three-lane design, this medium-sized map harbors a mysterious terror that will decimate your enemies upon completion of the map’s unique field order.
  • In Dynasty, players are transported to a lakeside Chinese village surrounded by picturesque mountains, vivid gardens, and spectacular architecture – a serene environment that is anything but Zen-like. Multiple pathways crisscross the village in this medium map with a variety of elevation and numerous back alleys that create flanking routes. The unique field order on “Dynasty” allows players to call in an air strike of vertical takeoff fighter jets, while one lingers behind to give you unmatched air superiority.
  • Nemesis cranks the frenetic multiplayer action to unprecedented levels with the fourth multiplayer map, “Showtime,” a sadistic reimagining of the smallest map in Call of Duty® history, the fan favorite map from Call of Duty® 4: Modern Warfare® “Shipment.” In the futuristic arena of “Showtime,” blind corners and narrow pathways provide momentary reprieve from the outright mayhem within the central square comprised of several shipping containers. Tight confines call for shotguns and SMGs. Survive long enough to be rewarded with one of three killstreaks: lethal automated gun turrets at key locations on the map, an air drop with multiple care packages or a deadly gas attack that forces the action back into the center of the arena.

Wer wirdémon-Meister?

„Wer wird Millionär?“ – wer kennt diese Show nicht? Die Möglichkeit, in 15 Runden zum ganz großen Geld zu kommen, existiert nun schon seit vielen Jahren. Und so dient diese Show als Vorbild für ein neues Chat-Quiz-Format, das Sebi gemeinsam mit Cosi auf die Beine stellt. Ein Chat-Quiz, wie es das in dieser Form auf noch nicht gab.
„Wer wirdémon-Meister“, nennt sich dieses neue Format, in dem nicht nur Fragen aus dem Bereich „Pokémon“ gestellt werden, sondern auch Fragen bezüglich eurer Allgemeinbildung. Dies soll Abwechslung bieten und natürlich die, die weniger Pokémon-Wissen besitzen als andere User, die Chance geben, Punkte auf diese Weise zu erspielen.

Wie das ganze Format nun aussieht und wie die Runden funktionieren, bleibt vorerst geheim. Ihr könnt euch jedoch sicher sein, dass es sich bei diesem Chat-Quiz um mehr als nur ein einfaches Quiz handelt, bei dem stumpf Fragen gestellt und beantwortet werden. Darüber hinaus gibt es gleich für mehrere Gewinner Preise, die aber auch bis auf Weiteres geheim bleiben.
Damit nun möglichst viele User die Möglichkeit haben, an diesem Chat-Quiz teilzunehmen, möchten Sebi und Cosi von euch wissen, an welchem Tag ihr an der ersten Runden teilnehmen könnt. Unter Kommentare gelangt ihr zur Umfrage, die ihr bitte innerhalb der nächsten zwei Wochen nutzt, damit dahingehend geplant werden kann. Zur Auswahl stehen der 23. August, der 30. August und der 6. September für den ersten Termin. Beginnen würde des Quiz jeweils um 17:00 Uhr. Gerne dürft ihr auch mehrere Daten in der Umfrage auswählen, sofern ihr auch an mehreren Terminen Zeit habt.

Vielen Dank an renchan für die Grafik.
