Sega restructures to expand efforts into Digital and Social Games

Video game giant Sega lays off 73 and restructures with an eye towards capitalizing on digital downloads and new formats such as social gaming. Articles and analysis by:

Gamasutra: ” For Sega, this means moving more aggressively into mobile platforms, digital content, paid downloadables, and social gaming.” ” The San Francisco office will now focus exclusively on digital and downloadable content (as the newly formed “Digital Division”) while London will act as the company’s administrative hub, as well as handle traditional console and PC games.”

GameSpot interviews Sega CEO Mike Hayes: ” With digital and traditional, there’s a huge amount of gray area. They’re certainly not mutually exclusive. There aren’t these blocks where nobody talks to everybody else.”
