Sega Europe is "in great shape"


Sega Europe president Mike Hayes has told GI that despite Sega US cutting 30 jobs yesterday, the European wing of the company is in "great shape."

"No, we're in great shape, in fact we're still recruiting," he said. "We've reinvented ourselves in the last five years - when I joined the company there were 30 staff, now with full time QA we're up to 650-something.

"In a way we've filled ourselves out, and we're still filling out Spain and Australia, our network crew which covers Football Manager Live and our PlaySega venture.

"So we're actually in good shape, and we're also having a very good trading year. In the market share results we were fourth biggest in the UK. It was Nintendo, EA, Activision Blizzard, then Sega - so we're actually having a really good time," added Hayes.

Good for them.
