Microsoft Japan has filed the paperwork to start an investigation into buying out Sega. Electronic Arts is also examining buying Sega, all or in parts, according to comments from EA.

We will see what happens in time...

Microsoft does say it is interested in acquiring Sega to beef up it's XBox appeal in the Japanese market, and believe Sega will do that. So how about that?

Anything is better than Sammy Corp, except EA. Make of that what you will.

downside - potential interference with sega's work from the new owner

upside - increased exposure of sega product and financial stability

i think it could be a good thing

This isn't a rumor. It's official. Whether they will or not, is the question.

I think the main complication is that Sega is supposed to merge with that pannicia (sp) company...
