Ok, Since I guess your not a gamer, let me set you strait. Sega is still here and are not going any-ware. They are a software only company now and make tons of games for all game systems(xbox,PS2, game cube&boy) PC, NGage Etc..). They also make middle ware, like the Multiplayer middle ware that Nokia has decided to use. They did NOT buy Sega!!!!!
