Blimey charlie. First up, we don't know for sure what's going on either way. Secondly, it costs huge amounts of money to make AAA games these days. Sega already funded what, 2 years of this? If that 2 years hasn't provided a decent turnaround, then sure they're going to stop pumping cash into it. Games, like everything else, is a business. It has to make money to survive. And you don't make money by continually pumping cash into somethinig. Take Killzone2 - it's done now but god only knows how much that cost. And that's to make it, let alone to market it. Sony can provide that cash because they see it as a system seller. Sega, like most publishers, aren't in that field, so if a game simply isn't going to make back what it's going to cost to develop it then it's got to go. It sucks 'cause in this case it's a game we want to play.
