Well I hope everybody who wanted one of these already has it, as the creators received a cease and desist from Sega! You can read about it here.

Seems odd to me that they would care about a guide made years after the console was finished, but if you have a copy of it it's now a collectible!

What a respectful exchange. That was nice to read and props to all who were able to acquire these.
Looks like the value will skyrocket. If I had one it would go in the vault with the rest of the priceless gems but I snoozed so I losed  :10:

Why Sega felt the need to do this, probably the lawyers rather than anyone with half a brain.

Probably the same lawyers who felt it was a good idea to go after videos of Shining Force playthroughs on YouTube. Posting videos and publishing books about Sega products only generates interest in the brand.

That's incredible, particularly when you consider how small of a project this was.  Unfortunate.
