Sega Testing Waters for New Console?

Sega may not have the best track record when it comes to the success of any console they have released. This could be said about some of the many games that have been released from Sega as well. But could it be time for Sega to come back to making consoles?

I think this could be a plausible test of Sonic the Hedgehog's relevance. The Sonic creator who has since left the franchise now talks about how he would love to work on a "Dreamcast 2".

not only is it NOT going to happen because of $$$

what i want to know is why do so many people always say things like i wish sega made a new console or i want a new sega console

what has sega made this generation that would make people want their new console so badly
the only relevant thing sega themselves have made this gen is valkyria chronicles besides that ZIP

between the software side of sega and the hardware side. Software wise they have gone downhill making mediocre titles with a few diamonds in the rough. Not like the old days of sega programming with lots of hits on the genesis.

Hardware wise, sega knows what they are doing. Rivaled only by namco in the arcade market when it comes to well built games in the arcades. Thing is, people now a days are wanting more substance than the classic quarter muchers can produce. So while sega could build a kick azz console based off their arcade know how, they dont have the games to satisfy the longevity gamers are clamoring for.

If sega returned to the console biz they would take the place of MS in that the majority of the games would be 3rd party. Sega lost pretty much all of its talent when they closed the doors on dedicated gaming. They arent meant to be a multiplayer and the quality of their games is proof.

Sega programers developing for sega hardware is the equivalent of sony and their 1st/2nd party exclusive games. Best suited on their own dedicated platform.

The phoenix (rumored sega system a few years ago) may one day rise but I put as much faith in that like duke nuke'm forever actually coming out.

The Dreamcast is one of the greatest systems ever created and it didn't succeed. I think this is Sega's calling to not make another console. Sadly this is the way it must be, besides a 4th system never makes it into the market. Saturn, 3DO, Jaguar, all fall by the wasteside.

Sega makes some of the worst games in the business, yet some people are completely delusional when they talk about how they hope SEGA comes back with another console. The SEGA Genesis was one of the worst console purchases I ever made, I should have gone with the Super Nintendo instead, since Nintendo's games at the time were so much better, and they still are today. Theres no chance of SEGA coming back fully into the console market, especially since they make some of the poorest quality games, and besides what would be the great selling point for a new SEGA console.....Sonic?....Please.. ..get a life people.

The SEGA zone is just a re release of their old games. a It does not mean SEGA is going to release a new system.

They just want to use cheap materials/production to make a little bit of money on the side reselling their things. I would buy it. It's cheap and it's retro.

They published beyanetta, resonance of fate, valkyria chronicles and few more really decent games. I agree they dont need a console though, their time has pased.

SEGA games sucked for a loonnng time....Until recently Sonic generations looks good. Even though it would be interesting if they came back into consoles.

and the ancient old fanboy war will once a again begin...

Nintendo vs Sega..

Genesis does what nintendo dont.

Last Sega console I owned was the Saturn, which was ok. But, PS1 was supported much better, so I had to switch.

Drjft2686d ago

I dunno. I'd like to see them get into the console game again but it's a tight market right now.

HurstDarkStar2686d ago

I'd still buy it seeing how dreamcast was my favorit console.

Hayabusawoman132686d ago

I think it will be interesting to see, a new console in the market to give consumers more options.. plus there are Sega fans out there that will probably be happy. I will follow this one and see how it turns out.. I wont jump to quickly at buying one but wouldn't mind test playing it out to see if I like it...
