    Sega goes back to making consoles

    According to qj.net, SEGA is making consoles again.

    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.
    [via Pocket-Lint

    I saw this "Zone 40" wii knock off once day in CVS Pharmacy. I LMAO so hard. someone does a review on this crap.

    My mom has one of those crappy zone things. I clicked on this thread all excited, then just saddened me that Sega's associating with whoever made that dollar store toy-thing. How the mighty have fallen.

    Yeh same here, when i read this on qj.net, i was all excited but then saddened by the disappoint on the stupid rout SEGA is making.
    i was looking at those consoles on thee pics and was thinking "wait, haven't i seem those b4?" then it dawned on me after i posted this "oh yeh...those crappy wii knocks i saw at CVS pharmacy"

    just like the ultra shitty chintendo vii.

    SEGA definitley picked the wrong time to make a console. At this point in time we dont need any more for the next few years. SEGA does still make some nice games though.

    This is really no different than the Atari Flashback consoles - they're just simple devices for playing a batch of old games. They're not really back in the real console business (and neither is Atari).

    The old Atari went out of business years ago.
    The current one is Atari in name only
