Het ziet er naar uit dat Sega nog lang niet klaar is met de Dreamcast. Het bericht van vrijdag dat er een PC kaart komt zodat je Dreamcastspellen op je pc kan spelen blijkt waar te zijn. Naast een PC kaart heeft Sega ook plannen voor de nieuwe generatie mobieltjes, PDA's en allerlei overige apparatuur.Sega hopes to collect royalties by offering varying levels of hardware, software and design support to hardware manufacturers who want to incorporate Dreamcast technology into their products. So what hardware is being referred to? As previously mentioned, Sega plans to deal with Personal Digital Assistants, the next generation of Japanese cell phones (which should have high-speed communication ability), various forms of AV equipment, set top boxes and Personal Computers.

This last area seems to be the most interesting. Reports from Japan are indicating that Sega is moving apace at incorporating Dreamcast technology onto a PCI card. By installing this card, Dreamcast games can be played through a computer in perfect form. We're not sure how the whole GD-ROM thing works out at this point, or if Sega would be planning on re-releasing titles on DVD-ROM format.

Apparently, at the business briefing meeting in Japan today (11/1), Sega showed a sample of the device, and newly appointed representative director and vice president Hideki Sato commented that Sega is already showing off early design work and samples to potential clients. There seem to be a few problems remaining, but one representative at the showing commented that the product is far along-enough so that it may see release before the end of next year.

Sega of America knew nothing of this PCI card Dreamcast, and was unable to answer when we asked about the use of GD-ROM discs on a PC.Meer interessant leesvoer hierover op Dreamcast.Ign.
