    Default SEGA to Join Next Gen Console War with SEGA Zone





    No leaks, no rumors, no teasers, no frustrated execs. Apart from revamping the Mega Drive in 2009, it seems that Sega has successfully kept itself under the radar about their plans of going back to manufacturing consoles - that is, until now. Electronics news blog Pocket-Lint has the goods on what appears to be the new Sega console.

    It's called the Sega Zone, and it will launch along with 20 classic Sega titles, plus 30 more for added kicks - all from the publisher. 16 of those will be motion-controlled. For that, the package comes with two black Wiimote-like controllers with pretty much the same function.

    While it's a console in the strictest sense, it doesn't appear to be a legit entry into the 7th gen war, even with its blatant Wii-ness. The Sega Zone is to launch this summer, priced at about 50, or almost US$ 80.

    Really...

    ...too bad it ain't the same old Sega we grew up on. R.I.P. Master System Slug Maze Game. :/

    Honestly, I'll prolly buy one though, even though this is merely looking to be yet another multi-game compilation gadget that plugs directly into your TV. I'd say considering this to be competition to the Next Gen wars to be quite the joke!

    What would be cool though would be for them to release an updated Dreamcast with Wii controls and bring back Wonder Boy and Alex Kidd as mascots featuring a whole new Alex Kidd adventure, as well as a Metroidvania-ish Wonder Boy in Monster Land sequel. And why not bring back Phantasy Star, but return it to it's 2-4 darker roots.

    To dream...

    Really?

    Is Sega just going to license anything now? This is a sad day.

    That thing looks like the $20 game systems you can buy in drugstores.

    We need a proper system from Sega, if they're to rejoin the console making market (like a Dreamcast 2 or something). Although, I wonder how they'll be able to get a new system off the ground and sell well enough if the company went ahead with the idea.

    I think Sega has been out of the console wars way too long to come back. There simply isn't enough market left.

    What they need to work on is improving the quality of their game titles.

    They need to hire back their old staff and go back to their old ethics!
