Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Has A Secret (Sega Dreamcast 2) Platform

Sega will be milking the announcement of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 for all its worth, doling out additional announcements and countdown clocks to drum up hedgehog hype. Perhaps the most interesting tease is the game's fourth platform. Sega's not revealing what that platform is for the time being, leading us to conclude only one thing: Dreamcast 2. Most likely releasing on 10/10/10. (Industry, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

this is a no-name site, with a misleading title and a rumor that's been floating around the internet for years with no credible materialization.

April 1st is still about 8 weeks away...try not to jump the gun next time
mikeslemonade  +   2121d ago
Xbox 360 is the Sega Dreamcast of the generation. It makes no sense to have two systems that would be playing the same games.
SilentNegotiator  +   2121d ago
Maybe it IS a no name site....
...but is legit.

"Playstation Network, Xbox LIVE arcade, WiiWare, and ???"
I thought prehaps it was going to be PSP2 or DS2 at first, because the site made it sound like a new platform and not necessarily a new service. I figured they might have to hide the PSP2's release or something, until I saw the above quote on the official site.

I'm perplexed. If it's a whole new service that they're keeping secret, perhaps it IS a new SEGA console.

My guess: A cheap console made mostly to play low end 2D games, that they will actually release in the US (Unlike so many DD-only consoles in places like Brazil). SEGA SENTER (Center).

That you describe has already happened. Sega recently launched a new licenced 2D console/wii rip-off in japan.
drummerx2709  +   2121d ago
The 4th platform is the iPhone. Its already been confirmed
colonel179  +   2121d ago
my guess would be...
the iPad.. I mean why not?

I am not sure if iPad games would run on the iPhone like iPhone games run on iPad, but it has a bigger screen, better resolution (i think) and is new... it would be good idea to appeal consumers to buy it...
grashopper  +   2121d ago
Why would they release a console then make their first party titles multiplatform?
Smacktard  +   2121d ago
Yeah, was wondering the same. What a crap site. Haven't thought this one out very well...
nogolis  +   2121d ago
ahhahaha what a joke. Yeah, 10 months away from release of this new system and no R&D or PR to be seen anywhere. That's such a realistic outlook. God people can be really stupid.
Razasharpz  +   2121d ago
Just STFU and appreciate that Sega is still around.
ChrisW  +   2121d ago
Just to let you know, young whipper-snapper, Sega was a very formidable console maker in its heyday! And us oldschool gamers welcome such exciting news!
cyguration  +   2121d ago
You shouldn't pull people's legs like that!

Some of us old-school gamers actually get excited with (fake) news like that :P

4th system is (hopefully) Genesis
I swear if it is the genesis, I'll buy that one even if it is twice the price.
ATi_Elite  +   2121d ago
twice the price! Hell you wanna buy my Sega Genesis? I even have the Sega CD
SaiyanFury  +   2121d ago
Genesis. It got a lot of my love in the early 90s. Actually I have it running on my low-def home theatre so I can play all my old games from the SEGA Master System, to the SNES. Good times. I don't think I'd pay money for another Genesis. SEGA's released it in multiple forms already. I'm happy with my original Genesis. Old hardware never dies.
HOSe  +   2121d ago
imagine if sega and apple teamed up and made a console together -_-, have powerstone as a launch title and im sold
ATi_Elite  +   2121d ago
Hey that's a good idea. One year Apple could sell the console then the next year you would have to buy the console that came with ports for controllers

then the third year you would have to buy the model that came with controllers and could actually play games.

@Krazie Bone: I lol'd cause it's true. +bubz
Tito08  +   2121d ago
I know this is a complete lie
But damn how would I wish for Sega to get back into the console business, because I loved every single consoles of theirs, specially the Dreamcast!!!!!
stonecold1  +   2121d ago
better than the gimpbox 360
sega was the best if this is for real sega i will support all the way
The_Zeitgeist  +   2121d ago
Sega is in no position to release a new console. They are having success as a game publisher now but are no where near as powerful as they used to be. Financially I just don't think they have the kind of capital anymore that is required to release a console.
DelbertGrady  +   2121d ago
Why did this get approved?
Theoneneo81  +   2121d ago
I agree theres no reall evidnce this is just pulling up random crap from no where.
Cueil  +   2121d ago
maybe people want it to be true
lonix  +   2121d ago
Talk about jumping to conclusions
More likely ps2 but yeh dc2 would kill xbotch3fixme
tedyesca  +   2121d ago
ipad, ipod touch, or iphone
Adolph Fitler  +   2121d ago
I would buy a Dreamcast 2, if it were to ever happen. I would also believe in The Bible and God if Jesus was making a 2nd coming.

Unfortunately both are fairy tales, that people still like to believe.
The Simple Truth  +   2121d ago
I's love to see a Dreamcast2
or maybe even a Master System 3 lol

With Shenmue 3 launch title!
massapeal  +   2121d ago
yes sega bring that bad boy out ever buddy miss it dreamcast2 babby dreamcast2 babby what do they really have to loose nothing if does not work out again go back make games or have Microsoft buy them out... sega could do this bring out a cheap system that run 720p or upscale to 1080i use the HDDVD format that might just work......
gameangel  +   2121d ago

Everyone knows the fourth platform is iPhone. Nice try lads.
MikeTyson  +   2120d ago
sarshelyam  +   2120d ago
As "drummerx2709" already stated...
...the mystery platform is iPhone/iPod Touch. The original image was up on the blog then mysteriously removed.

I wish Sega would make the Dreamcast 2.
AngryTypingGuy  +   2120d ago
A new Sega system would probably hurt MS more than Sony. I think more Dreamcast users went to Xbox.
Tito08  +   2120d ago
Yeah, most likely
I was a Dreamcast user(well, still am since I have one) mostly the fighting games were those that drag me to the DC and games like Crazy Taxi, Shenmue, Sonic Adventure, Sega GT.... I wasn't too much into the Xbox because of the controller n the rest of the games, it was Ninja Gaiden that made me buy an Xbox!!!!!
Shnazzyone  +   2120d ago
I'm guessing ipad
or iphone is they're 4th platform. Don't get your hopes up on a new sega console anytime soon.
fatstarr  +   2120d ago
i highly doubt sega would be making a real console
in 2010 with a psuedo 3d/2d sonic 4 to compete against the next god of war zelda wii and halo 4 lol

wouldnt they just make the game exclusive to their console then lol

ovb its iphone ds or psp or internet or onlive or pc lol
Tito08  +   2120d ago
I doubt Sega coming back into console business
But if they ever do, that's a sure day one buy!!!!

I like Sega...
I would buy a Dreamcast 2...

AngryTypingGuy  +   2119d ago
Well the 360 controller shouldn't be an issue at least. It's the best controller in the business. Much better than the overly bulky original Xbox controller.
