Sega and NIntendo need to get together, have a drink or two, think of all their best/worst systems, maybe prank call Atari, then build a system that will rape sony and Microsoft. Forget gimmicks, realize kids have dads that were 5 in 85' and had their systems playing Contra, Bump n' Jump, TMNT, Dragon Warrior, Zelda, and Super Mario Bros 2. They did not play track n' field, kurby, and barbie. So dad is not going to buy this crap.

they need to file a trademark for "we suck". one wouldnt know that i used to be a hardcore sega fan boy back when i was a kid during the 8-bit sega master system, 16-bit sega genesis, 32-bit sega saturn, and 128-bit sega dreamcast days but after sega got out of the hardware biz and they finished porting over all their dreamcast titles to the ps2 and gamecube, most of their games just started sucking (with the exception of panzer dragoon orta for the original xbox). seriously though, wtf is this crap? people are screaming for stuff like skies of arcadia 2, shenmue 3, and an actual good, modern sonic game but instead they come out with crap like this.

Sega, where the hell is Shenmue HD? I'm more concerned with that.

Cmon Sega... if you're going to develop a game with dancing, why go for what seems to be a generic dance-game and not a sequel to, I don't know, SPACE CHANNEL 5?

The world has been crying out for this game. Now mandatory kinect makes perfect sense. *Sarcasm*

If you want to dance, hit the club. It's cheaper, sometimes free, and you get to check out chicks. If you're lucky you might even go home with one. But with dancing games it's just you and the game on screen, and all the sadness around the space.

SEGA is entering an incredibly-small and vicious market. 

Unless they come up with some brand new concept, that hasn't been taken by Dance Central or Dance Dance Revolution, their product will sell poorly and layoffs will begin miserably.

Now I finally find a connection between games and violence. If someone makes another GODDAMN FUCKING DANCE GAME INSTEAD OF SOMETHING ACTUALLY WORTH PLAYING, I WILL FUCKING KILL SOMEONE.

A dance game is definitely what Sega needs to regain its market share. Yawn.

@KimCheeWarriorX When the NES and Sega wars were going on it pushed each system to make better games. Most of which were ONLY type games, now money is so involved there is very few games that are only on one system. Sonic has been pimped out so much since sega went to making just games that I doubt they know where he came from.

@jtthegame316 I feel like you but the sad truth is that most creative people from that "good times" left Sega or was forced to leave after Sega stopped supporting their hardware.

@silvergol @Raventhade Just Dance is another competitor to Dance Central and Dance Dance Revolution. 

No, SEGA can't do the same. These three games alone control a big portion of the market for dance games. As I've stated previously, unless you offer something new to the table, your product will most likely fail to meet sales expectations.

Most people can't see how they could do it in a way which would actually earn them money. Release 1 & 2 HD to pave the way (which is already finished), then make Shenmue 3 with the exact same graphics and engine, which wouldn't cost them 1/4 as much as the originals did.

But as always, devs have no imagination.
