Petition: ‘We Want More Sega Games (Like Bayonetta) On PC’

Petition: ‘We Want More Sega Games (Like Bayonetta) On PC’

Bayonetta. Virtua Fighter 5. Vanquish. These are all Sega games that must receive PC ports, according to a petition born out of a Twitter campaign from last December.

But why those three games, specifically? As the creator of the petition explains, they’ve been chosen because they fulfil three criteria:

1. Do we feel the PC market can support this game? 2. Is the port likely to be economical? 3. Do we feel we are asking for too much at once?

Which the above three games fit because, as a NeoGAF poster elaborates:

Both Vanquish and Bayonetta run on the same engine [Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance] does and is already ported to the PC. And Virtua Fighter 5S runs on Windows. Clearly these are not very expensive projects at all.

This is actually a very good point. While it might be that Japanese game developers are, generally, not very interested in PC gaming, Sega already has a fairly large presence on PC. Look at their Steam catalogue, for example; they’ve got a hefty amount of PC games already. They’ve got Sonic. They’ve got a large chunk of their classic 8-bit and 16-bit console games. So why stop there? Why not have Bayonetta? And later on, perhaps even Valkyria Chronicles and Skies of Arcadia, or even Shenmue?

Currently, the petition is hovering at about 1900 signatures out of a required 20,000, a number which it managed to reach after a day or so. Sega is already aware of the movement, and hopefully, a successful petition will help convince them to expand their interactions with the PC platform just a bit further.

  • I want valkyria chronicles 2 and 3 on the ps3……….though I have determined sega is run by a bunch of cruel people who just want to tease and hurt game enthusiasts………maybe they are still upset the sega Saturn bombed??

  • I actually really enjoyed both Vanquish and Bayonetta, so sure I’d love to see them on PC. It has been proven in the past that ports that are done well, usually recoup their costs and more quite easily (Alan wake). The problem I see is you will always get people that will complain about the port, and wont just be happy in the fact that they got it in the first place (if it happens). But that’s the internetz.
