The dream(cast) is alive! New Sega console info leaked!

***Update. New blog info!!!    http://kck.st/ys01Je Check it out!***

 

A leaked press release hit the internet late last night, in which Hajime Satomi announced Sega planned to dive back into the console market by Christmas 2012!!! Talk about great news for all us retro gamers.

Here is the rundown of this alleged upcoming console:

  • Based on Sega’s RingEdge arcade board
  • Aims to compete with the Wii’s successor on the casual side, while appealing to the hard core gamers as well.
  • HD Graphics
  • Comes with two controllers: One motion-sensing for casual games and the other, based on the Saturn’s 3D controller, for “hardcore” games
  • First announcement expected early 2012
  • Release date Holiday Season 2012
  • Price range $200-$250

Sega’s new console, codename Eclipse, looks to be picking up right where the Dreamcast left off. To compete with the big boys, Microsoft and Sony, Sega plans to have a “Fully realized, feature rich online experience. With no subscription fees. and a focus on releasing quality console exclusive titles.”

With sequels to the popular Jet Grind Radio, and Skies of Arcadia already in the works. Sega just might be on the right path.  Though in my opinion, the console world has changed a lot since the Dreamcast. Sure, when it came out it was way ahead of it’s time. However is Sega really ready to throw in with the likes of Microsoft? Only time will tell. More info on the new console, some games, and more technical aspects available on the Press Release video .

    Actually, SEGA are developing a new console, of course don't expect a 360 or a PS3 lookalike! I can tell you that it will be announced in 2013, and will be released in November 2014 to go with the Dreamcasts 15 year birthday. It is currently known that Shenmue and Shenmue II will be remastered in HD for the new console and then a year later they will be ported across to the X360 and PS3 - There were plans to release Shenmue on XBL Arcade but people wanted HD graphics, so they are hoping that this will pave the way for Shenmue 3 which is a highly demanded game.

    Thought I would mention, as I forgot to in my last post. The two names that keep popping up about this console are the SEGA RingEdge and the SEGA Sun and the 2014 date will put it in line with Sony and Microsoft, who are planning to unveil new consoles and set a release date sometime that year. I would also like to mention, this isn't a prank or some sort of false hope. I am a huge fan of SEGA, and wouldn't want to dis-appoint other fans! I'll be buying it, just for Shenmue! :D

    that Sega console picture is just a game system like the Wii (kinda), but it's really horrible only 49.99, In the picture they only put a Sega logo. Pretty good trick not a lot of people would recognize it.

    Ok the Picture of the Console with Sega Logo is a Zone 60 rip off Wii. And the Date of this has Crushed My Hopes And Dreams
