The lights are on
In an interview in the January issue of Game Informer (Tomb Raider cover, issue 213), Sega's executive vice president of sales and marketing Alan Pritchard revealed that the company is going to release a Dreamcast collection title that will compile some of that system's most popular games, similar to the Ultimate Genesis Collection title that was released this year.When asked about the persistent rumors of a Dreamcast 2 console, Pritchard spoke about Sega's plans."The Dreamcast fans are very devoted. You see on eBay people are still buying the games and system. We actually have a Dreamcast collection coming out soon. We are looking to bring some of the old Dreamcast games to market digitally and packaged. The titles are still to be announced. The Ultimate Genesis Collection did huge numbers on PS3 and 360, so it’s an important part of our business. We’ve already been releasing some Dreamcast games digitally; Crazy Taxi [for one]."And, just for the record, Pritchard once again scuttled any speculation that the company was looking to make another Dreamcast system, saying, "Unless there’s something I don’t know – no one has told me about getting back into the console business.For more on Sega, read the full interview in the current issue of Game Informer.
