If its going to be better than the ps3 then it will be a long long time untill its going to come out... some of the ps3 chips are not even fully developed(as far as I know) so unless the sega is going to use the same parts... and clame that its better or they are going to have to develope something new.... oh well. I hope that it will turn out well. I did enjoy lots of the past games for sega.
also I really like how you could put little mini games on the VMU, that was a really cool idea and how when you have a VMU in the controller and your playing it shows game info on the screen
A new sega console? I have to see it before I believie it.
i want a dreamcast >_<
have to become rich first though =(
Now this is interesting. I remember when they vowed out of the console market, they have been watching it for some time and have obviously decided to step back in.
I own a Dreamcast, I use it regularly and when I do, I am always amazed by the graphics and how they stand up to todays console with ease (anyone wanting to argue with that, play resident evil CV on DC.) but after 7 years, will they still be making them as good as they used to? and even if they do will anyone take notice (The DC's sales were absolutely criminal for how good the console was.)
I knew there was something wrong with the story when I read the first post. Sega will not be releasing a console anytime soon, if ever. There are still people that would stay away because of how they screwed things up in the 90's. Plus there are already three systems out. 4 would just be too much. Plus there is no money to be made selling hardware except licensing fees. Money is in the games which is what they do now. Don't hold your breath to ever see Sega branded on another console.
Yeah Sega gave up making consoles after their failure with Dreamcast 1. Don't get me wrong I thought it was awesome. COme on internet...
I was waiting for the "April Fools!" shout to come out (although a bit early), but I suppose being old and mistranslated works just as well..
Truthfully, there's no way Sega would come out with another console at this point in time. For one thing, I don't think the market would support a fourth console, and Sega has sort of a bad reputation after how the Dreamncast tanked (even though it was amazing).
Finally, if any of the more recent games are any indication, a new Sonic game isn't exactly something to get excited about. (Although I heard that the Wii Sonic wasn't exactly terrible. I played the XB360 version for a short time though, and the controls were HORRIBLE).
i am one who happened to get a dreamcast. i had asked for a ps2 at the time but my parents got me a dreamcast. it wasn't too shabby. i loved sonic. the opening cutscene with the tidal wave was just amazing. i hadn't seen anything like it.
the VMU was a great step in terms of memory and having used as something more. the marketing of it could have been done so much better, but it is hard to compete with a name like sony.
Hope it gets rebadged, i think it would be a mistake to call it dreamcast II, after the first one not out selling its rivals, and with sega been out the market for so long, a new name would be a better idea. SEGA VS (Virtual System) sounds a better name if you asks me, mixes old (master system) with new technology (Virtual) and is alot more catchy
