Nintendo isn't the only company trying to expand their properties.

Quote
As Sega looks to turn more of its videogames into other forms of entertainment, it has hired former Break Media executive Evan Cholfin to lead those efforts.

Cholfin now serves as head of development and production at Tokyo-based Stories International, a joint venture of Japanese gamemaker Sega and Hakuhodo DY Group (the world’s seventh-largest advertising agency) that was launched to produce films, TV shows and entertainment for digital platforms in 2011.

Of the vast library of titles that Stories has the rights to adapt, it’s moving forward with “Altered Beast,” “Streets of Rage,” “Shinobi,” “Rise of Nightmares” and “Crazy Taxi” first as English-language live action and animated spinoffs. “Virtua Fighter” and “Golden Axe” also are part of the portfolio of properties.

Somehow I don't think these adaptations will be successful. The franchises they picked haven't been relevant in years, not to mention they'd be a difficult thing to adapt. What would a Crazy Taxi movie even entail? Why don't they make a new Sonic or Yakuza movie instead?

They are already making a Sonic movie...
An Altered Beast and a Golden Axe movie would be pretty cool.
Also, why not get Yu Suzuki to direct a Shenmue movie? Because by now I don't think a third game will be made...
I'd also like to see a Phantasy Star movie (preferably animated), based on the old series because the Online and Universe games aren't that interesting. Oh, and a Shining force one, same rules apply.
I think we should just wait and see.

I'd prefer if they brought back the video games first...

I guess they think they'll make more money from movies and TV shows than they would from games. It's not like that many people are clamouring for a new Altered Beast game.

Sometimes, the logical business decision stinks.

Logical business decisions? That's not SEGA.

I would like a new Altered Beast game, the first was pretty fun, although I didn't get that far. Not sure about the PS2 one, one of my friends said it's cool, though.
I also want a new Crazy Taxi.

Lets get an animated movie of Shining Force EXA since SEGA seems to like that one.
