    Heres an article I found while scrounging around the net. Can't comment on the legitimacy of the reporting (Though it appears reputable) but if anything it would make for some interesting conversation[​IMG]. I'm glad Sega wants to stay on its own and I hope it remains so.

    By the way, lets try keep this discussion civil ladies and gentleman. Just giving a prewarning.

    Multiple companies have tried to buy Sega in the past. As for the Square aspect... Hrmmmmm. Sega couldn't afford them independently - they'd need a rich backer.

    I used to work in a Business School library: Red Herring is *very* reputable.

    The author of the story also wrote the "Opening The Xbox" book, which I happen to be reading at the mo'.

    Too bad for MS.

    I would love to see some FF games on the X-box. I think the system is perfectly suited for those type of games.

    I think MS has finally figured out that their Dev temas know how to make PC games, but not console games
