Re: We Need Sega To Make Gaming Consoles Again
I don't think SEGA will ever hit the console market again. The Dreamcast was an awesome system but it and its exclusives vastly undersold their expectations. SEGA has been making big capital profits, but the cost of entering the market and risk of failure are both massive. The three conglomerates in MicroSoft, Sony, Nintendo have all been around for years. Nintendo caters to the casual gamer market(The market APPLE will go if they ever decide to enter console gaming). Microsoft and Sony are in complete competition with each other. But let us remember, most games are shared between consoles and only the exclusives are not. The exclusive franchises are big selling factors for consoles, and to be quite honest, SEGA are already producing what would be their exclusive titles if they made a console, for 3 very big established consoles.
Finally to add to that, a lot of their partners and support they had back in the 90s, are now with one of the big 3. That makes things harder to set up too. There is just no real reason for them to risk it. They are making a lot of profit already.Instead of a new console, I would simply prefer if they revive the old game series exclusives they had such as Shenmue etc.

I call dibs on GTS, Pepsi Plunge and running knee in corner. I am sure Sheamus will take the rest.
