The number three is quite an important one for SEGA fans: the highly successful Mega Drive/Genesis was the third SEGA console (excluding the many variations of the SG-1000 and Master System), Sonic 3 & Knuckles is considered to be Sonic’s greatest 2D epic, and fans often request Sonic Adventure 3 and a Shenmue 3. It is fitting, then, that we make such a big deal of our three year anniversary. While three years may not seem like a long time, for a website it is quite a feat. For three solid years our writers, admins and mods have strived to bring SEGA fans the best general SEGA fan site we can. We’ve done our best to keep up to date on SEGA news and reviews, from official stories to fan projects, and strived to create as much original content as we can. As such, we are very proud of our many features including the My Life with SEGA video series, Tuesday Tunes, writer round tables, the Friday Five (which will return soon), the Sonic Talk podcast, and our general SEGA podcast the SEGAbits Swingin’ Report Show. We have also redesigned the site a number of times, but always for the better, to give readers and followers the best visual experience we can.
Of course, all of the above means nothing without a crucial element: our readers and community members. Without all of you, SEGAbits probably wouldn’t have lasted as long as it has, and would be nowhere near the success that it is. As such, we want to give a huge “thank you!” to our readers. Thank you for frequenting the site, thank you for the comments and news tips, thank you for the hours spent in our forums and thank you for making us the number one general SEGA fan site on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. Also, a big thank you to the many members of SEGA’s staff who helped us out with articles, interviews, contests, and events. You know who you are, and you’re awesome. So here’s to three years, and here’s to many more!
Check out these notable articles from our past three years: our first post, our second anniversary post, our exclusive preview of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, our interview with Steve Lycett, our interview with Nagoshi, that time we got angry at Kotaku, our incredibly long special edition podcast looking back at ten years of SEGA games, our Dreamcast marathon, why we’re glad to be SEGA fans.

Happy Anniversary! I wouldn’t have met the people from Sega and revived The Website of the Dead without you guys. I sm thankful to be a part of this awesome community.
Sorry, but you have to subtract all the time the web site was down yesterday.
Ah! But we add the development and building of the site, which balances it out!
I was going to leave the comment count at 3 to commemorate this occasion, but…eh.
Happy Anniversary! You guys are great.
Congratulations! SEGAbits is definitely one of the best blogs for videogames, let alone for SEGA related topics, on the internet!
3 more years! 3 more years! 3 more years!
I’m so very sorry, DCGX, because George, Will and Barry made it perfectly clear to me recently that SEGAbits is not their future, so they’ll be shutting the site down in favor if BITScast. That should launch very soon. 😀
News to me! Though I know AJ will be changing his videos to My Life with Tamagotchi…
Damn it, Barry! That was going to be announced later in the week. Way to go.
By the way, what’s Tamagotchi?
Although I am out of the loop on recent Tamagotchi news.
While I am far from being an active member of the community I really appreciate the work you guys do! Just commenting to say thank you and keep up the excellent work!
Congratualtions SegaBits. You’ve grown even bigger and better than when you used to be Nerds :D. I’m glad I could be a part of that, even if I haven’t been as active as I used to.
I first found this place when Seganerds.com went down sometime ago. I wish I had found this place earlier. I now come here daily and hope to still do so in the future. Congrads on the 3 years guys!
Congrats guys, I really enjoy the enthusiasm and informative content for Sega, especially the interviews with Nagoshi & Lycett (how did you pull that off?). Good work so far and good luck in the future, friends. 🙂
Happy Birthday SEGAbits!
I personally never expected the site to get so big, I know George did, though. It’s been nice watching it grow over the years.
It’s really strange how life can work, many years ago I thought would never work for a website, let alone a popular one.
Don’t wanna get all emotional and deep, but SEGAbits means a lot to me, it’s helped me a lot, not just with my web design goals, but it’s helped me realize when I was pushing myself too hard too and better manage things without overworking myself. I would stay up many nights working on segabits, not healthy at all. Also snapped at George and Sharky a few times..
but that’s all in the past 🙂 we’ve all gotten older and wiser, and I see a good future for SEGAbits. I look forward to doing what I can to improve SEGAbits even more in the future.
and of course our community, I love it. I post on quite a few forums, but SEGAbits is by far my favorite, everyone here is just really chill and awesome, so thank you! 🙂
Happy 3 year anniversary Segabits. 😀
We definitely appreciate all who check the site, comment on articles, and/or chat in the forums. Really helps make what we do worthwhile. =]
Best SEGA fansite hands down
