    This from MSNBC...

    Jan. 29  That dirty word  convergence  has now married the video game and digital television industries. British set-top box manufacturer Pace Micro Technology and embattled Japanese video game firm Sega announced this morning that they have developed a digital set-top box that will play any and all Sega Dreamcast games. The hitch, though, is that the box won’t actually play game CDs  it will play them off of a hard drive, with the games being downloaded in only three minutes via digital television bandwidth.

    They want to stop DC-Production and Take such a risk: I saw a european-study about bandwith cable , and it said that this kind of tecnology wont get in a lot of homes in the near future.......

    Well - I have no idea who Pace is. But I don't really care either. It doesn't matter. I'm sure the strategic business planning that Sega has come up with for the convergence has been well scoped out. I think I would trust their judgement. I think we should be rejoicing that they have not declared bankruptcy.

    As far as moving to set-top, or getting out of console making - this is a good thing IMO. Fact is, I love Sega games. I could care less what they're played on. As long as Sega makes great games, I'll play them. VF4 could be on DC although I would prefer it on a PS2 or an XBox. Actually, the XBox would be my #1 choice for VF4 at home - I'm not a big PS2 fan. ;) The DC, I hope, will NOT get VF4 because it's likely just not powerful enough without some sort of upgrade, etc. The last thing we need is a downgraded port. Who knows? We'll find out soon enough anyway.

    cheers.
