Sega of America layoffs confirmed


Sega of America has let go of 30 employees, a rep for the publisher told Edge. In an emailed statement, the company explained that during this time of "economic recession, harsh retail landscape, and the reality of business challenges to profitability," the company must take steps to reduce "cost structure and ensure long-term success."

In the future, it would be nice to see Sega invest in the promotion of its more unique titles (Valkyria Chronicles says hello) instead of focusing so intently on that past-his-prime blue hedgehog.
