    This. These are just feelings, not a rumor or whatsoever.

    And I'm sure the Shenmue guys wanted to make Shenmue III but that ain't gonna happen.

    The Dreamcast, while considered a great system that was ahead of its time in retrospect, still sold very poorly. About 10 million worldwide sales. Even the second-to-last finisher that gen, the Gamecube, sold more than twice that amount. And with Sega being a major publisher now and out of the hardware business there's no reason to make another console. If they want to make Sonic Adventure 3 or Shenmue III they'll be on the Xbox or Playstation (probably not a Nintendo system though, just saying).

    Meh. Sonic has sold better on Nintendo consoles, and I think they think that the PS3/360 crowd is still kinda put-off by Sonic 06....

    Shenmue probably, though, but that's not gonna happen.

    At first, I was excited, but I really don't see this happening.

    So someone who isn't working for Sega wants to make Dreamcast 2 with Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo.

    So it wont be Dreamcast 2 at all then...and he'll only be advising even if they want him.

    Title changed.

    Dreamcast 2 lol, with HD graphics and 3D capability, now if that were to happen, we could have more gaming console clashes!! but alas, this is not even a rumour, just a random thought by Yuji Naka...

    Most any great idea is a "random thought". And for every genius, one-in-a-million idea-type random thought someone has there's 10,000 more failed or dead end ones.

    The actual boss of Sega is an stupid guy who thinks Sega MUST develop only software.

    Besides, Yuji Naka leaved Sega some time ago.

    Hey, if your consoles sold as badly as the Saturn and Dreamcast did then you'd have the same mindset as the head honcho at Sega.

    For the record Sega has published some great titles since their switch to publishing.

    That doesn't prove that the Dreamcast would've succeeded. He just said that he though if they poured more money and made an even larger (and frankly unwise) investment it might work. They were also going against the Gamecube (successor to the awesome N64), the PS2 (the highest selling console ever made), and the Xbox (the first console from Microsoft, who was already a giant in the PC world and with PC gaming), they didn't have a chance at all. The Dreamcast may have been great but it just didn't have hope.

    I see Naka all the time. He has a home in my city.

    Dreamcast 2 = More likely than you think.

    NO! And the 1 billionthb time NO!! That guy is the main reason why SEGA collapsed and don't make any consoles no more. If you watched the 10 main reasons why SEGA failed, you will understand my point.

    Yuji Naka, you stay inside your fail studio and continue making crappy games! Don't come near SEGA, its recovering slowly and it doesn't need a horrific relapse!!!

    Wasn't Yuji Naka the guy programmed the original Sonic The Hedgehog, and produced Nights, Burning Rangers, and Phantasy Star Online?
    Besides I thought the Dreamcast was a great console. I still have one and still enjoy it.
