Dreamcast 1.5 or April Fool?

We all love a good April's fools rumour and this one is no different, introducing the "Dreamcast Limited Edition Console".

Dreamcast 2, with plenty of Grrrrrrr but no classic swirl....

To be honest, I think it looks like the bastard child of an Alienware laptop mating with an Xbox but the premise is sound.

"The new console should have a new but similar design, wifi, wireless controllers (4 maximum) 720p or 1080p HD upscaling and HDMI output, internal 500g Hard Drive and a GD-Rom drive. The console should be able to play original Dreamcast GD-Roms and also have the ability to connect online to a Dreamcast Classics Store to purchase and download classic Dreamcast titles in digital form where it can be played directly from the Hard Drive."

Notice the effective use of the word should? Knowing the current video game industry, you're more likely to get a tug from one of the sailors in Dobuita than Sega listening to fanboy petitions but it's nice for us to dream. Alas, I think the latter option is more likely. Still, if you do have a few spare minutes it only takes a few clicks and could at least lead to more exposure to the possibilities of our beloved console's awesome fan base.

  1. I love it seen this before it has been around for a while now. The ability to play DC games would be great but not a deal breaker. It wont and to be honest probably shouldnt happen. In my estimation any attempt for a hardware comeback has already passed. Well in the traditional sense anyways.
