Secret Sega game stash uncovered...

How one "loses" an entire room aside, it supposedly contains every Sega game ever made.

The old-school Sega fanboy in me thinks that the holy grail doesn't look much different than this.

Hopefully they actually play some of them to remember what made them great and make them realize why they're so god-awful now.

I'm a bit skeptical that this is a somehow-forgotten room in "Sega HQ." It just looks like a couple of shelves in some big fanboy's bedroom.

No self-respecting fanboy would have that many copies of Sonic 3D Blast.

I just hope that when they found it, someone abruptly screamed, "SEGA!"

I was a Nintendo guy, but opted for the Genesis instead of the Super NES. And Sega really burned me with the 32X, so that bitter taste kept me from wasting money on a Saturn. Though I have a Dreamcast and that was a pretty nifty console, but for Sega the damage had already been done.

Re: Secret Sega game stash uncovered...

it looks like their in-house game library... two of the companies i've been at had rooms similar.

It seems almost too obsessively packed and organized for a corporate room. My "evidence" also wonders how 2007's Appleseed EX ended up in the "lost" room and why Sega has such a select grouping of 3DO, SNES, and other titles in their software stash.

Looks to me like Sega of America. I'm pretty sure Sega of Japan have a far more impressive vault containing, among other things, one of the two Neptune prototypes - and no doubt many more amazing goodies.

Besides, only Sega of America could lose a room in their own HQ.

i would guess Sega's game library is filled with other non-Sega games for research purposes. just as the library has a ps1 dev kit. The library also sports spools of cds and GC minidisks (probably builds for testing).

Yeah, I guess you'd have to be a hell of a fanboy to have such a collection, it just looks so much like the shelves I've seen in obssessive collections, the ones where the collection has gotten out of reasonable size.

It's a hell of a collection though, I wonder where the X-Box games are...

I wish Sega would get back on their game though, they've really faded since the demise of the Dreamcast and their hardware division.

Did anyone read the original blog? It says on there it was never "lost" it's just no one ever told them it was there.

It's not hair splitting...

[8/14]Slight clarification based on the Kotaku article that went up today. The room was not forgotten by anyone in SEGA, they just didn’t inform me or the other community guys that it existed. When we were doing a tour of our new space, we came across the room and made our way back to take some photos and show them around.
