Right. Czar or Tsar is basically a King or emperor, a bit like Kaiser. All these words stem from Ceasar.
Governernment health care is socialist. Ok. Britain has government health care . Before the world wide recession London was one of the leading financial centres in the world (according to some it was the leading financial centre in 2008). Now, what you need to ask is: Does that make Britian socialist or capitalist? Or you could accept that rigidly sticking to either of these ideologies is nonsensical.
As for Sega, I'd probably rather they were still making consoles instead of Sony and Microsoft. I like the Nintendo model of the console maker also making most of the key games.

@Adam: Castle Crashers is one of few currently available 360-exclusive games I'm really sorry you can't play. Shadow Complex looks to become another. That brings us to the BAD of console exclusives: How do we know exactly WHY it's exclusive? On numerous occasions, it's because Microsoft paid the company to do so, whether permanently or temporarily. THIS is a circumstance I find inexcusable. If a game is going to be any kind of exclusive, it should be because the developers want it to be and for no other reason.
This problem seems to be cooling down a bit, with more games releasing on PSN and Live Arcade in the same week. I hope that trend continues.

I don't really mind exclusives too much even if it works against me (unless its something I'm REALLY looking foward too), mostly because it has been around for as long as game consoles themselves, really. Nintendo was especially notorious for this back in the 8-bit days, and it's something that isn't likely to go away.

But it didn't matter that Nintendo did it. I mean who even played their Atari anymore? And who even owned a SMS?

Well, sure it mattered. That was probably part of the reason the SMS didn't really have a chance to take off. It also kind of killed competition before it could even start. Honestly, that's not even Nintendo's only questionable business practice from the time. I know it seems unimportant today, but it is an interesting piece of videogame history.

^ United States =/= World.As i said, the claim "And who even owned a SMS/SMS didn't really have a chance to take off" it's false.Sega made profit of SMS in some contries you know.Ever heard of Brazil for example?
And other Sega Consoles for exaple the Mega Drive outsold the SNES here at portugal to the point kids at the time didn't know what a SNES was.So don't generlize it as if the US market it was the same outside the world.
that asideI own vey much to Sega, it was because of them i started to play video-games, did you know that only this year we have a Nintendo Portugal? just to reflect how nintendo cared about our market. Their consoles were distributed by a toy's publisher that only made the gameboy(s) shine. Other Nintendo Consoles hardly had ANY sucess.If i wanted a new Sega Console? Heel Yeah, but only if the console market have 3/2 major consoles in total including Sega.

@ 47. The Fox
Your right, it is interesting when we look back.
@ 48. MrPinguy
I know. But Brazil really didn't have a Nintendo. Nintendo would of knocked them out anyway pretty much anywhere except some of Europe and Brazil. Yeah, SEGA shot themselves in the foot by not making an amazing game for launch. By the way I could sell a single flash drive and make a profit if I were a flash drive company.
Edit- Do you live in Brazil? or speak Portuguese? or maybe a rabid SEGA fan?

Wait, so the trends of the United States don't equal the trends of the rest of the world? Because I totally didn't already know that. The thing is, especially back then, the best gauge of a consoles health was how it was doing in the U.S and Japan, where the NES had a 80-90% market share. Brazil and parts of Europe just weren't enough to sustain it.

I am from Portugal and yes i'm a Sega fan, but Nintendo also gave me joy of course with the Gameboys/DS , Hell Metroid is my 2º favourite Franchise XDIn fact the Wii is my first Home console and the PS2 was my first sony. before it was Sega all along
"I know. But Brazil really didn't have a Nintendo. Nintendo would of knocked them out anyway pretty much anywhere except some of Europe and Brazil. Yeah, SEGA shot themselves in the foot by not making an amazing game for launch."Me & other Kids in 90s here: SNES What?There were SNES here, knocked out SEGA? Nope. Actually if there is one company knocked out Sega in a worldwide scale was Sony, not Nintendo.There was a Lauch tittle here, and guess what it was?
@FoxOne thing is saying that " Brazil and parts of Europe just weren't enough to sustain it." which is true, other is saying that hardly anybody had a SMS that is false.
EDIT: Don't try sell flash drives here, we got so much of them here ok? We're NOT the end of the world T_TThere were only 2 console companies at the time, Nintendo didn't care so Sega got it here, just because Sega was almost alone in the market doesn't mean we HAD an empty market overall. Lame prespectives of Portugal... (We are helping the USA in your military affairs if you don't know )
