Can anyone give me a quick rundown on how Sega became a Japanese company over the years?

>> No.4271973

1) Be in Japan
2) Form a company
3) That company happens be named Sega

That's about it.

>> No.4272007

>>4271973
This. Sega was always a Japanese company. I'm not sure what op's question could possibly mean otherwise

Ok.

In 1940, two Amrican business men opened a business to make and provide slot machines to military bases.
However, in 1951, the US outlawed slot machines on US territory, so they sold Standard Games, and created a new company in Japan known as Service Games, service referring to military service.
Since Japan is not a US territory, they continued to sell slot machines to the US military bases on Japan.

In 1965 the company changed it's name to Sega, and the business aspects were handled by two Japanese companies, Nihon Goraku Bussan and Nihon Kikai Seizo.
However, Sega was still owned by David Rosen, an American business man.

In 1969 Sega was sold to Gulf and Western Industries, another American enterprise, and in 1974, Gulf and Western made Sega a subsidiary of an American company renamed Sega Enterprises, Inc., allowing them to take the company's stock public.

It wasn't until 1984 that a multibillion-dollar Japanese conglomerate CSK bought Sega, renamed it to Sega Enterprises.

>TLDR: Sega was an American company up until 1984

I thought OP was being retarded, very interesting facts.

It seems to me the 1965 merger marks the point where it became a Japanese entity. Just having an owner from another country doesn't mean it's of the foreign country too. I mean the New Jersey Nets isn't a Russian basketball team just because a ruskie owns it.

>> No.4272073

>>4272070
The business aspects were handled by those Japanese companies, however all the games and (rights to those games) were made by and handled by the American Sega company.

Also, those two Japanese companies were founded by David Rosen

>> No.4272087

>>4272073
But still, the important fact is they were incorporated in Japan - not America, but Japan. That makes it a Japanese company.

>> No.4272115

>>4272087
But it was created by, and owned by American companies.

>> No.4272121

>>4272115
Okay, try and tell any court that a company incorporated in Japan is in fact American. Go ahead, try. See where that gets you.

>> No.4272390

Seeing as Japan has been a satellite state for the United States since they lost the Pacific War, every company there belongs to us.
