    No, there is no Dreamcast 2 in the making (at least, that´s what GS said), but this thread is a follow up to the rumour that appeared online and Gamespot talked about.

    So, do you think that there a place in the market for the return of Sega?

    Honestly, i don´t think there is, but i´m positive that i read somewhere a long time ago, right after Sega gave up consoles, that the company was making some internal changes, and could return to it.
    It´s true that, to some degree, the market is a bit stagnant at the moment.
    You have Sony vs Microsoft, and Nintendo alone in their own place (Nintendo is a diferent ball game when in comparision to the other two).
    Sega could give Nintendo´s a run for it´s money, and make the gap between Nintendo´s gaming and the other two (PS and MS) shorter.

    How cool would be to Sega release a Virtual console?
    Imagine a budget console were you would have all of Sega´s library, from the Master System to the Dreamcast, even Game Gear would be in it.
    Everyone knows that it would be a huge sucess, and a good way for Sega to make a comeback.
    Besides, the return of Sega would be something new to the table...

    No, they have no place. Their name means nothing anymore, thanks to them, they'd be surrounded by entrenched, better funded competition, they've got zilch for good internal studios now, so compelling exclusive content is out, etc. Sega can barely make it as a 3rd party publisher pushing crap out the door, going back to the hardware business would be a trip back to bankruptcy. And that sucks, because I used to be a huge Sega fan. Even had a Saturn.

    As for the virtual console, depending on price and selection, I'd probably buy it.

    I'd buy any console for Shenmue 3... but Sega's just not a publisher worth my time anymore.

    What if they decided to make Shenmue 3 but as a Playstation 3 exclusive?

    It'd never happen, so he doesn't need to worry about that.

    Sega can't make Dreamcast 2 because their hardware division no longer exists. It's no more likely than Konami, Namco, Capcom, or EA deciding to make a console.

    I think the new iPod will be coming in the backdoor, though, it would be more equivalent to a PSP or DS than a PS3 or 360 both when it comes to development AND power.

    Sega COULD pull of something stunning in the handheld world... but for the big consoles? I don't see it.

    I had a Saturn too.

    They can't even make decent software games anymore. They're not going back to hardware, even if the Dreamcast was severely underrated.

    The possible return of Sega?If it's done right,it could be the return of the third true contender to Nintendo and Sony,and show the X-Box how a real console is done.

    The console market is already crowded enough with the three ring circus of Nintendo, MS, and Sony. If Sega jumped back in (which they CAN'T since their hardware division DOES NOT EXIST anymore), the "console war" would become a disaster zone.
