Unfortunately, even if Nintendo dropped out of the console market it probably wouldn't leave a wide enough hole for SEGA to risk filling again.

Nintendo isn't what's stopping SEGA from re-entering the market...

Or sony or microsoft should drop out so sega can make consoles again? /s

I kind of look at Microsoft as the new Sega..I mean Microsoft did help with the dreamcast it was ran by drirectx and Windows ce. Also some of the dreamcast team came over to Microsoft and helped design the xbox360 and market it, hence the similar look and swirl logo. It's like Sega passed their torch to them.

I love my dreamcast, still works to this very day as a matter of fact. But I love my Nintendo systems as well. Hope that doesn't bother you.

I agree with you but I wish Sony would drop out. No no not drop out, I just wish Sega would just come back into the console market.

too bad its only in japan i want one. specifically the dreamcast skinned laptop. i always dream and hope that sega would make a console again someday. been a sega fan since the genesis days.

But even the article says they are overpriced for their specs, and don't have any special features besides the skins. Just buy a nice laptop and airbrush it with a SEGA theme. You'll have a better laptop, and you can customize it to look how you want.

Sager makes the best laptops, they don't look the best but their price/performance is king.

Oh man, what a tease in the article title.

The top spec laptop is a Intel Core i7-3630QM with a GeForce GT650M and 8Gb RAM.

So more powerful than a PS4.
NastyLeftHook0  +   523d ago
you have no idea how powerful the ps4 oficially is, and that is a fact.
NameRemoved0017  +   523d ago
My expected ps4 specs: 8 core bulldozer @5ghz, mid end graphics card, 8gb ram, 3gb vram, 64gb built in solid state drive, 1080p native, 4k upscaling, hardware capable of playing ps3 games, and built in ps2 and ps1 emulators maybe (please).
tachy0n  +   523d ago
well if sony wants it to keep it affordable to the public, it wont be that powerful, thats a fact.
Soldierone  +   523d ago
It also costs over 2k dollars, more than a PS4 will ever cost.
kwyjibo  +   523d ago
Yeah, but surely you appreciate the irony. The other PS4 advantage is that it's not running Windows 8.

You could always tell them to not install an OS on it and install windows 7 yourself. Windows 8 is a cancer that needs to die before it spreads.

Theres room if Sega can pull of another dreamcast with next gen in mind.
They first to enter 128bit consoles First and beleave only one to ever think of a virtual memory card,56k modem.
They clearly were well ahead of there time imagin what they could do with dreamcast 2?
Fullmetalevolust  +   523d ago
My heart jumped at the idea then settled when I realized it's just laptop themed covers...what a bummer.
If Sega, as a software company can't churn out amazing innovative titles like they used to in the past, it's not with a new console that they'll try out new IPs.
I'd like to think that if they did their line up would be of past stellar games like: panzer dragoon, shining force,Sonic, Jet set radio, crazy taxi, another Nights into dreams, guardian heroes 2, skies of arcadia 2, phantasy star online 3, dragon force 3,etc...

all I can say is that it better have BLAST PROCESSING
bayonetta  +   523d ago
i miss dreamcast
INehalemEXI  +   523d ago
i feel you.
SockeyBoy  +   523d ago
Luckily I've still got one. Actually all the Sega consoles, they are a freaking blast. Actually playing Shining Force 2 now...far out I miss the old days.
SkullBlade169  +   523d ago
Still got my Master System, Mega Drive and Dreamcast. I use all 3 of them quite a lot surprisingly, shame Sega was too stupid to use their IPs that made them successful in the Master System and Mega Drive eras on the Saturn and Dreamcast, they may have fared better.
