In a stunning announcement today, Sega has decided to finally throw their hat back in the race for Console supremacy.  Said to be more powerful than the PS4 it can run multiple tv’s throughout your home, all broadcast at 4k resolution, uses a hotswapable SSD bay, and will include 5 brand new Sonic the Hedgehog games at launch (including 2 first person freerunner style view games).   Sega Japan CEO Hajime Satomi said in an interview, “We feel that we know that the public REALLY wants now and this is the culmination of 12 years of R&D.”  More information as this story develops.

*UPDATE*

There seems to be some confusion about this article still.  Just to clarify everything, this was an April Fools joke, notice the LOL and the publish date in the below picture.

The picture used at the top was found on the internet as an artist rendering of what they want the console to look like and the same guy even made a Youtube video.

All of this is fake!  I wish I could say “I’m sorry” for crushing your dreams but this probably the best April Fool’s prank that I’ve ever played.  Special thanks to Chris for coming up with the idea :)

        People are still searching for it quite heavily, its been one of the better jokes if you ask me. Just proves how much people loved the Dreamcast.

            Rumors are super fun dude, but Sega may make hardware however I doubt it will be released as a new “Sega” console, they will probably just sell their tech to the other guys…of course that is only if all these rumors have anything to stand on.

      Hate to break it to you but Sega, long ago, stated that they are out of the console biz. However the popularity of the Dreamcast is still shown in how many people wish for the Dreamcast 2 to be real. Alas, it is not, April fools.

          Happens every year man, a new rumor, a new guess that they may get back into it. Only time will tell. However, there is definitely an outcry for a new system so who knows. haha

      Because drawing a picture using a computer is so incredibly difficult…

      the pad alone looks like a flattened xbox controller with different colours. Don’t believe everything you read online kids.

    This is 100% an April fools joke! Trust me, I wrote the article. The image used is a mockup made by someone else who desperately wants to see a new Dreamcast like we do. I must say that this is the most evil April fools prank I’ve ever played.

      I saw a trailer for this today.. Though I saw that the controller looked similar to that of the xbox360 controller, I still had faith…. Thanks scrub ;~;

    Haha, haven’t purchased a console since the ps2 came out. If sega comes back into the hardware business, I’ll most likely buy the console in a heartbeat. Nonetheless, i guess people didnt pick up the fact that this article was published April, 1. I bet these are the same people who believed sheng long was real back when egm claim to have unlocked him with their near impossiable trick.

      Yes, this is 100% an April fools joke. However it does show that there are still people out there who dream of a DreamCast 2 haha. And I totally unlocked Sheng Long myself back in the day ;p

    I really hope Sega does release another console because I love the Dreamcast! And I would buy their next system when it came out.

    EA Sports turning their back on Sega is why I only play Xbox now. Sony feared competition from the Dreamcast back then, and they can still suck it. I don’t miss Madden, I’d rather play the NES version of Tecmo Super Bowl on my PC with updated rosters.

      Yes EA sports did not support the DC, but I’m not entirely sure what that has to do with Sony…Also all Madden games are available on the xbox…
