SEGA Amusement USA changing location and name

I guess there have been rumors flying that SEGA Amusement USA will be closing down, since their website has been down. The fine folks at Arcade Heroes got down to it and found out what is really going on.

It seems that SEGA Amusement USA will be changing locations from Elk Grove Village, IL to Wood Dale, IL. They have also confirmed that they will be changing their name from SEGA Amusement USA to Play It Amusement Inc. The company is still going to be operated and owned by SEGA.

This new change is aimed to keep the same employees and streamline operating costs by working closer with SEGA Amusement Europe. I don’t know why they changed the name myself, but whatever.

    Aw man! I never knew SEGA had offices near Chicago! I would have tried to catch a glimpse of them back when I was in college. I remember walking past the Midway offices back in 2005 and thinking "damn the torpedos!"
