Ever wondered what a new SEGA Dreamcast might be like? If Ryan Peter were SEGA, he would be thinking about returning to the console market right about now. Here's why.
they can't afford to compete with the big 3 console brands
Rubbish idea ... they havent even saved yet the franchises they ruined or plainly abandonned .
I know it would be extremely difficult but the way Microsoft is going, it would be great if SEGA could take their core fans and their market since MS seem to be going with the casual. Although even trying to enter the market again and take their place they would have to have new IPs matching up to Halo/Gears/Fable, plus they would need to give Sonic a rest so they can do a well developed Sonic game in the future.
my dreamcast gets at least double the attention my PS3 gets. that says it all.
Yea.......it says your gaming preference is pretty sad
ha hes probably some xbox fanboy
Yeah, I want a Sega Master Mega Super Cast and I want it's release title to be the final damn installment of Shenmue dammit! Throw a bit of Powerstone on the pot to simmer and mix in a bit of Daytona USE :D Seriously though, although completely unlikely - I would support and buy it the day it came out.
Terrible idea. What niche of the market would Sega fill? The thing I've seen this gen is that each manufacturer has clearly defined a strategy different from the others. Nintendo have gone for lower power hardware, and casual appeal through motion and other non standard controls Microsoft are banking on Kinect and complimentary 'living room 'services. Sony are catering to mainly hardcore plus casual and pushing their other core business tech (Blu Ray, 3D, other media) Where would Sega fit in? I think it's better they remain a publisher, and focus on rescuing their IP.
I had a sega genesis, it was awesome. What was even better was the dreamcast, i only played a few games on it at my aunts husbands house and i loved it, it kept me playing all night to the point where they had to take away the controlers lol
They couldn't even if they wanted to. Well they do get some huge profits from arcades in Japan but that's still not enough to launch and sustain a console in all markets. Maybe if they launched in japan first and wait see how that goes?
