Sega buys US game studio Secret Level

Sega will acquire Secret Level to create an internal game development studio

Sega Holdings U.S.A. will acquire U.S. game developer Secret Level for an undisclosed amount, Sega announced Monday.

The acquisition is part of Sega's new move to develop at least some of its games internally, via an in-house development arm, which the company also announced Monday.

The company decided to acquire Secret Level to form the foundation of its own game development studio, rather than build one from scratch, said Simon Jeffery, president and chief operating officer of Sega, in a statement.

Secret Level was an external game developer for Sega prior to the acquisition, with titles including "America's Army: Rise of a Soldier," "Magic: The Gathering -- Battlegrounds," and "Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter."

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
