This is funny. If this is true don't expect heavy support by Sega. Maybe this is just something to test the waters and guage the market but this market cannot support 4 consoles and Segas days have passed.



"What have i done.? Is it too late to save me from this place? From the depths of the grave? We all are those .. who thought we were brave."

THIS SEEMS TO BE A PC more than a console and price will be high



It's Sega News Wire.

What more do you need to say.

I am Mario.


I like to jump around, and would lead a fairly serene and aimless existence if it weren't for my friends always getting into trouble. I love to help out, even when it puts me at risk. I seem to make friends with people who just can't stay out of trouble.

why do you need to write MIke from ...............



Id love to see sega back in the console business.

But GTX470 is not enough to have a full 1080p stereoscopic next gen games. You'd need GTX480 SLI physics card in 2011-2012 to churn out 1080p 3D with flawless graphics.



ummm, Microsoft tried a straight off the shelf system and I'm pretty sure it cost them billions in losses. I don't think SEGA could afford that.

This is clearly a bunch of BS.

Its actually the best way to go for a smaller company.

I mean, howmany billions has Sony lost making that Cell chip? They had to price the console at 599 at launch to boot and still take a huge loss. For 599 they could have easily built and  equal or greater power console in 2006.

The only way a smaller company can make a console/portable device is to use off the shelf parts, Google Android OS and sell it to you at cost.

Regardless, the story is still BS
