When will people ever let this DC2 idea die? Can't we just be happy that SEGA is still making somewhat relevant games?

Never. SEGA is not a small publisher.

You'll be seeing SEGA put out a PC rig by early 2017. Mark my words.

Shenmue 500k is actually 25k. They threw that 500k in the title to make people believe they had more supporters than they actually do...

I know that. Bertie told me. The KS has 67,000 backers.


We're pretty serious. We already have contacts with Sega of Japan interns.

Meanwhile, in the executive board room... "Gentlemen, we're at a loss for how to proceed in the upcoming fiscal year. It's time to check in with the interns and see if they've got any ideas."

If I were there as an investor, I'd advise them in Japanese to restructure Sammy Corporation,Inc by dissolving their Panchinko Slot business completely and replacing it with a Novelty Slot and Vending Machine business where they manufacture and sell Coin Slots for Laundrys, Food Vending Machines, Fortune Teller Machines,ATMs, Soda Machines, Casino Slot Machines, Nail dispensers, Ticket Dispensers. Roulette Gambling Machines.


Hell, anything but Panchikos. They're going extinct.


Exporting them(The Slot and Vending Machines) worldwide would also make them money.

Lmao!

I don't mean any disrespect in regards to these idea, they just don't make sense to me. Sega is pretty consistently slashing profits. What makes anyone think that they can take on the financial responsibility of releasing hardware? Makes no sense.

Shenmue 3 Kickstarter backers are not members of Shenmue 500k and they are not the same people that will buy a Dreamcast 2. You can't just assign numbers to other things when it suits you.

They're slashing profits from their two LEAST profitable divisions that were cut down to size in the previous fiscal: The Consumer Game Business and Panchinko Slot business. The remaining divisions WILL still post profits.






Yes, Barry I'm aware of that. I never assumed in anyway they'd support a DC2 campaign. Many Sony fanboys falsely assumed Shenmue 3 was now a Sony owned IP and people thought Sony was funding most of the budget, so the KS started to decline.

It would cost far less and be much more powerful.

Again, because why?

Will Sega buy in greater bulk?
Will component makers give Sega discounts for simply being Sega?

Why will it be cheaper and more powerful? Where is your proof? Evidence?

The Project Dream website is open.


http://www.projectdream.co/


It has elements of the Nintendo Dolphin website page from 1999.


The Admin showed me controller and SKU Casing designs he and his OEM engineer company designed.


These shall be used for the upcoming new SEGA PC Gaming Rig Crowdfunder "RingEdge Zero" we'll be starting in a couple of months.

The parts will be cheaper. SEGA is also an ARCADE manufacturer(Did you forget that?) So the build would be making double profit if converted into an Arcade Board.


Yes they would buy it in greater bulk. Especially if the parts are dirt cheap(which they are.)


SEGA are still partners of Intel & Nvidia. There's also MANY Japanese OEMs and silicon part suppliers desperate for contracts because they keep getting ignored each generation.


We already have a build and spec sheet. The main CPU will be a Core i5 Haswell, which is extremely popular and high end inexpensive ARK CPU Tray from Intel. Very popular among PC gamers.

What the hell...a near carbon clone of Star Citizen interactive website? I must say this is a rather poor first impression.

It's a THEME.


Also remember SEGA's 5th Generation? Remember, the Space themed codenames of "Mars", "Jupiter" and "Saturn" from 1991,1992 and 1993 and "Neptune" and "Pluto" from 1994?


It's obviously inspired by that.

A "theme" that oddly and specifically bears the exact text(even referencing by name) used by robert space industries instead the of the usual placeholder text. Like...you guys couldn't even bother to at least delete the text and put a coming soon placeholder page instead?

Even the "Get package" near the bottom of the page link back to Robert Space Industries. This is disgusting.

Again, I'd call that rather a rather poor first outing.

The site is in Beta stages and still under construction.

I have to side with JRcade. When i went on the site, i thought i was on the Star Citizen website. You guys need to polish up the site asap if you want to be taken seriously, it looks really unprofessional.
