In additional, tournaments for the PlayStation 2 edition of Guilty Gear X and WonderSwan Color version of Guilty Gear Petit 2 will be held at the festival as well.

- Sega is planning to enter non-game businesses to bring in extra profits. Munehiro Umemura mentioned that they will develop educational software, training / simulation software, know-how in content development, arcade facilities management and computer graphics technology. The new businesses are expected to represent over 10% of sales in the next 5 years.


This was directly taken from magicbox, they gave no credit to the site that originally claimed this info.
They steal there info without crditing the true news bringing sites. Mike is going to be pissed, I know I am.

Luckily this was copyrighted before these thieves stepped in.
Not crediting the site that brought this forward is not smart, especially when the info is copyrighted.
Boy was that a bad move.

Those games were directly linked to the creaters site, which was announced o n neonews.
So if the people taking the information are going to, they MUST credit the people that brought it forward.
Which they did not, there would be no question about it, if they added a link.
We gave credit to the site which is creating these games, they gave no credit to the informers.
Had they, Pandoras box would have remained closed.

If you get the Mega games - try to disassemble them

You'll find that the code could well be MAME with game ROMs - certainly is for KOF99 - I know - I had to take it apart for preparation for a legal suit - very dodgy business for SNK, especially as they have been informed what was going on.

Let's hope that they don't get too greedy for ready cash

I dunno about the other games but Samurai Shodown 2 has been out on the pc for a long time. There is even a shop nearby selling a cheap used copy. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

They can release whatever they want...
For me Neo games must be played on Neo platforms!

One question though if they convert Neo games to Pc then how much will they have to change it.

None at all - most of the above releases were just emulator + ROMs - except the first 2 that were done by Cyberfront - they were full conversions
