Default Let's boycott Sega

So looks like sega release another half assed port for the iPhone.
I think it is time we sent sega a message.

Let's not buy their games on the iPhone untill they clean up their act.

Who is with me.

Let your rage out here.

They've certainly fumbled when it comes to their iPhone ports. My guess is a lack of confidence in the platform, which leads to less risks being taken and Sega attempting to push the games out as cheaply and effectively as possible.

You can always Jailbreak and use the Genesis emulator (I tried it once, noticed some minor performance issues but I'm not sure if it's the same across all games). Obviously I don't encourage the illegal download of ROMs.

But yeah, Sega need to realise that if they released the best of the Genesis performing perfectly on the platform, they'd make a killing.

What is doing Sega with iPhone games justs sucks.

Come on Sega, make it from scratch (you have the source code) or send it to me and I'll do native in Xcode

Eh, really does suck that they refuse to update any of their games really. Sad how a company can grow so big only to fall like this.

Too late. I was boycotting SEGA from the start.

Half assed rip-offs don't belong on the iPhone
LET THE ROLANDO LIVE!

I think Konami are also worth boycotting. They've released some really disappointing games of late.

Why boycott them? Surely them releasing steaming piles like that are, is going to bit them ultimately anyway.

Konami are on my sh!t list too, right now - until they release their latest Baseball title in the UK. Still can't get my head around why they'd not sell it globally - weird.
