Sega denies rumors

Today a Sega representative stepped up to the plate to respond to the rumors of the demise of the Dreamcast and the newest rumor stating that Sega is secretly developing game titles for both Xbox and the Playstation 2. The first rumor of interest had been reported by Japan’s Nihon Keizai Shimbun stating that production of the Dreamcast would end by March leaving Sega to focus on software development only. According to Sega reps plans for the Dreamcast are "huge and long term." Sega spokesman Charles Bellfield re-emphasized this point by stating that announcements are set for next week about adding a hard drive and downloadable content to the game console.

On the XBOX and PS2 development rumor Bellfield replied "We have no acknowledged plans in terms of those platforms." Two statements issued Tuesday state "It is not Sega’s policy to comment on rumors and the company has not made any statement regarding ceasing manufacturing of Dreamcast or development for other videogame platforms," and lastly that Sega "globally reaffirms its commitment to Dreamcast" and report that more than 100 games are coming out worldwide for the console in the next year.
