Simon Jeffery responde a fãs de Sonic depois de comentários polémicos feitos na Business Week


Fonte 1 Fonte 2 Fonte 3

Os fãs de Sonic ficaram escandalizados ontem, quando num artigo da Business Week(que pode ser lido na fonte nº1), Simon Jeffery, o presidente da filial americana da Sega, terá dito que o futuro dos jogos Sega se encontraria em jogos licenciados e que Sonic já não era considerado fixe para quem tivesse mais de 12 anos.
O escândalo foi tal que certos fãs de Sonic enviaram um e-mail ao dito presidente e por supresa, obtiveram mesmo uma resposta, com este a afirmar que tinha sido mal citado e que os seus comentários tinham sido descontextualizados. Os e-mails podem ser lidos aqui em baixo:


In no way did I mean that Sonic isn’t cool for the over 12s. I am an over 40 – and I still love Sonic. Press interviews often result in misleading quotes – as is the case here. What I was trying to convey was that SEGA needs to build better quality Sonic games, that appeal to everyone – not just the under 12s. It is a fault of some of the recent games, not of Sonic, that the current situation exists – and that is something that we are working hard to change.We believe Sonic is one of the coolest characters in videogame history – and we are striving to make the games themselves better.Sorry my meaning was taken out of context – fans like yourself are important to us.


Simon


The trouble with a one hour press interview, is that only bits and pieces actually get written into the article. My actual sentiment is that SEGA needs to work hard to make Sonic cool for everybody by building better games that appeal to fans of all ages. I’m in my 40s, and am a big Sonic fan myself.I’m glad that we have fans like you who care enough to write to me – because believe me, I care about Sonic too, and want to make better games that please everybody.


Simon
