In a completely unexpected and surprising move, Sega of Japan has fired up the factories and have started to once again manufacture the Dreamcast console.  The demand for Sega’s great, yet previously under-appreciated console has risen considerably since the unit’s recent price drop (especially in Japan), and every effort is being made to satisfy the demand of the gaming community.

Although this in no way means that Sega will begin to release any future games for the DC, it surely has to be considered as a remote possibility.  With the high demand for Shenmue II imports by American gamers and the continuing success of Phantasy Star Online, we just may see some new releases for the DC after all.

At least there’s a glimmer of hope where previously there was none.
