News coming soonEdit

Just something we'll want to keep an eye on. JOEBRO64 12:07, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

    • No Dreamcast 2 is disappointing :( . Oh well. I am curious what it will be. Kinda glad it's on June 4 as well; I can't imagine trying to manage the new news on the day this is on the Main Page. (Of course, if it leaks early, we're screwed). Red Phoenix talk 13:46, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
      32X 2... ? Popcornfud (talk) 13:47, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
      It could be the Dreamcast 3, if they're getting ahead. JOEBRO64 13:49, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
    • Maybe it's a mini console? I don't know what it could be, but I highly doubt this is gonna be some kind of new tech-savvy game console (the console industry nearly murdered the company, after all). If it is one, I'll eat my words. Namcokid47 (Contribs) 16:35, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
      There have been rumors that Microsoft may be buying them out, but I doubt that's true. Who knows. JOEBRO64 17:08, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
      I'd find that a little sketchy. Sega Sammy Holdings just restructured Sega on April 1 of this year again, and Sega reported a highly successful year with an operating income of over ¥14 billion last year, and despite the complaining that it had reduced, ¥9 billion the year before. I can't imagine that Sammy would want to part with it at this moment in time. Red Phoenix talk 17:42, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
      Microsoft offered to buy Sega or merge them with Xbox in the early 2000s, and they rejected the proposal. This was when Sega was on the verge of collapse after the sad demise of the Dreamcast, and were severally struggling financially. If Sega rejected the offer then, why do it now? They're such a massive company with billions of dollars, they don't need Microsoft to survive. Namcokid47 (Contribs) 18:35, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
      Namcokid47, it was actually Microsoft who made the decision, not Sega. Bill Gates rejected Sega because he didn't think they had the muscle to take down Sony. Microsoft probably would have run Sega down into the ground like they did with Rare anyway, so I'm happy it didn't happen. JOEBRO64 18:37, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
      I was just about to correct myself, yeah. I think Microsoft would have an easier time acquiring a smaller studio like Nippon Ichi Software instead of going after giants like Sega. Namcokid47 (Contribs) 18:40, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
  • They're making a Game Gear Micro. JOEBRO64 01:31, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
    • I heard about this through Discord. It sounds neat, but not something I'd pay $40 for. It's for the diehard Sega fans (which does not include me, really). Namcokid47 (Contribs) 00:10, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
