    Introducing the kickstarted console Sega DreamCast2
    In 8 days we will get our first glimpse at the Sega dreamcast 2 PC/Console Hybrid


    Lawsen and the other group working to resurrect the Dreamcast said that SEGA officials in Japan are in involved. And they are now planning to host the Kickstarter to get the hardware and designs finalized.

    It might be released by the end of 2016

    (edit: only read title, didn't think Sega was actually backing this, until I read the actual page)

    If this is true, this is simply awesome.
    Although I wonder if a huge company like SEGA doing a Kickstarter project is a good think for their image :unsure:

    I wonder what the rewards will be though. I mean, unless you give like ~400$, I don't think they'll send you the console once it's ready.

    I admit, I do to. Good memories of when Sega was a console maker.
    Their chances of clawing their way back are kinda slim, but it'd be cool to see them try.

    I think it is rumored to be $175 if it is not then I will just wait until the official release. Well.... Maybe if a t-shirt is a option I will back it. Maybe.....

    lol Alienware is overpriced. That's why you build your own PC.

    Well at least we know that if the NX fails Nintendo could possibly do a comeback in 2030 :creep:

    It could maybe work if they keep the best parts of a console...
    -standard, locked down hardware specs with a 5-6 year lifespan (most important)
    -console exclusives
    -standardized controller
    -sega "eshop"
    -sega nostalgia (can't rule out them feels! ^^)
    -maybe other things that sega can bring as a platform holder

    and PC.
    -better hardware per $
    -can play PC games too
    -homebrew, emulators, Linux, Windows!! ;p
