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


“I’m truly excited about the Crowdfunded prospect for SEGA RingEdge Zero/RingWide Elite. There’s virtually no competition in the PC rig business and most PC gamers are left having to spend heavy budgets on building the perfect rig as Alienware is both expensive and just doesn’t offer Quality for its less expensive rigs. The design and spec build we’ve chosen has Intel Core i5 Haswell, the most popular and strongest quality performing CPU among PC gaming enthusiasts.

“Quality” and “Quality Control” is something missing in-game hardware brands now in days. And is something SEGA had with all of its consoles.

If we can get just a million backers worldwide, our upcoming KS could be funded in record time and with SEGA licensing it could have it out on the market in less than a year!”

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 is rumored the system may be a PC-console hybrid, and it might use x86 architecture while sporting a NVIDIA GTX 740 GPU, an Intel i5 4460 at 3.4GHz, and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. The new system will have WiFi controllers.

It might be released by the end of 2016

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 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.....

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
