Sega "Restructuring" Games Division
Sega switching from a retail distribution to a digital distribution. This is a big restructure, so an "unspecified" number of jobs will be lost.
Its a sad day when Sega, one of the big boys, has to change its Western operations. Sega said "Due to the challenging economic climate and significant changes within the interactive gaming industry, Sega has made the decision to consolidate its publishing business in order to focus on developing digital content and driving its existing intellectual property such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Total War, Football Manager and the Aliens franchise.”
The company further said, "This realignment of the business around existing and digital IP is a necessity to ensure that SEGA continues to invest and enhance its digital business offering, whilst reducing its reliance on traditional packaged goods."
