SEGA To Halve Dreamcast Prices

Sega is slowly developing in to a media favourite. They are turning out 10 stories a minute and their deny then accept policy to news stories, brings to mind the classic, boy who cried wolf, fairy tale.

The latest story, reported by CNN today, is bound to make a Dreamcast owner of almost everyone. According to the news giant, Sega will drop its Dreamcast price tag to almost half of todays price.

The drop in price is expected to be implemented in March 2001 and could bring the price of the console down to USD 99 in the US.
This move is probably an attempt to reduce the hardware stock of the Japanese company, allowing them to focus on their newly defined target, software development.
Considering the limited numbers of Dreamcast consoles which will be available, this price change may lead to scenes reminiscent of the Playstation 2 war, fought in the streets of the US last December...

For all you morons that believe everything that is said in the news.. Sega is NOT giving up on the Dreamcast. What news sites and such have failed to mention is Sega has enought Dreamcasts made already to last 3 F***ING YEARS! so CHILL OUT! and second, Sega is planning on releasing updates for the Dreamcast.. to up the graphics and other little bits. Dont get pissed off just because they're going to stop making them.. there will still be plenty of companies out there making more and more games for this kick ass system.

Maybe Sega might reconsider if they sell all overstocked dreamcast units. That would put a larger installed base than that dismal PS2. I own all the systems even the ps2, and I am still not impressed with it yet(sony). Dreamcast has already proven they can muster a fight, they should not give it up yet and turn to the competition for help. As for EA, I still haven't bought a game from their sports line in about 5 years.

I have always been a fan of Sega, even after the shity Saturn, but the fact is this baby is plain good, but the developers weren't prepared t put any time into it at all, which sucked really.Has anyone heard of what they're doing with the set top box makers PACE..? Well, if you have, then I think thta's a bit of a crap idea. Make a new console I say, and make it badder.There are some quality games on there. And I have to say that I think Shenmue sucks, and I dont care if you hate me...cause it does. MSR, what a game, more of them will do nicley.I think that if Sega sell out of this "over stock", and then scrap the plans to scrap it, then it could make people a bit angry about the fact that they were tryin to get money. But then again, who'll by a console that's stopped being made and developed for..? Exactly.Oh yeah, I got a DC and a PS2, and the PS2 is sheer quality. Screw the X-BOX, PS2's here!BASKEYDragon, you're writin shows that you really do not have any social life. ;)
