News went out that Sega in August 2007, set out to protect their patent trademark Dream cast with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office. This includes all forms of peripherals from dance pads to joysticks and everything in-between. While this may be a bid to develop these items for other systems, it could be a dream come true!
Officials at Sega have denied a new system in the making, however, in the world of gaming just as in the world of Pro-Wrestling, never say never.
The original DC was far beyond its years and is perhaps the most under rated system in all of gaming history. The fact that games are still being produced even in 2008, is definitive proof of its cult following and strength of the system itself. The DC can play just about any system games before it such as the Sega Master Console, Sega, Genesis, Sega 32X, Atari 2600, 7800, Jaguar, ColecoVision, Intellivision, Turbografx, MAME, Nintendo, SNES, even several PlayStation games! in truth, the DC plays original PS1 games with better resolution then a PS2!
One can only hope that the Dreamcast 2 becomes a reality. With such devices as a wireless one glove fits all control system. Sega was and is the ultimate underdog in the gaming world and has among the very best titles to support a new system.
With Sega creating tons of games for other platforms, it allows them the opportunity to strike at any time and crush 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. The new system would undoubtedly be far and away the most advanced gaming system even taking the Wii to task. Sega can do it – they should do it. Will they do it?
Only time will tell…..
There is plenty of speculation that Sony is working on a Playstation 5, and Microsoft is ready to bring to market the Xbox Scorpio. Is this the Xbox Two? Who knows, maybe. It seems likely that these consoles will be appearing sometime in the future, with the Xbox coming soon Scorpio arriving soon.
SEGA might be unlikely to jump back in to the console market, but if there is a company that can do it, then surely it is SEGA. The only mistake they really made was with the Dreamcast, and although it was a big one, they totally defined the console market back in those times when console gaming was taking off. Still, many still wish for a Dreamcast 2, and, why shouldn’t they? The Dreamcast is still regarded as a console that had so much potential. There were some good games of which we can play today via a Dreamcast emulator. For me, it is really sad, the Mega Drive was totally awesome. Still, we have amazing SEGA games to play today, if nothing else.
If you got this far, when you go to some forums on this topic, people will say this site is crazy stupid for thinking it could happen. But hey, the reason for the DREAM is in the name itself – Dreamcast 2!
