In an intriguing turn of fiscal events, Sega could be shifting it’s focus to developing and publishing primarily for the PC. In a recent article by Fortune Tech, analysts reveal that game revenues for PC are 2.5% more than TV display based platforms. While this may not seem like much, the difference is a few billion dollars.
In Sega’s case, some their best selling franchises: Company of Heroes, Total War, and Football Manager are all PC based developments. And the Total War property has seen 2 million units sold in the last year alone. In addition to that, the latest Football Manager was the fastest selling entry in the history of the franchise.
Honestly, this makes perfect sense for Sega to focus on the PC. Other than the partnership with Nintendo, and the poorly received Aliens: Colonial Marines, their console presence has certainly cooled over the last few years.
What do you think? Should Sega embrace the PC to stay afloat?
