Katana to Become Dream Cast?

Rumors that claim to know the official name for Sega's next console are burning up the Net.

by

TOKYO - Just two days away from the official announcement of Sega's next machine, and the rumors have started flying about its official name. Brace yourself....

Some people are saying that the name will be related to the word "dream." Others are saying that the official name for the machine is actually Dream Cast. Some are saying none of the above - and that Dream Cast refers to the lineup of developers Sega has assembled to develop for the new system and nothing more. The words "Dream Cast" were apparently spotted on printed material Sega plans to distribute at the Thursday press conference.

Whether any of this is true or not, all will be cleared up at Sega's press conference on May 21, where it will announce the name of the machine and hopefully more details as to the release date in Japan and the first round of games. We'll let you know when we get the news

Hmmm...Now the meaning for the odd name, "Dreamcast". Makes sense. A dream team of developers working to make games for the console --except EA. Or the name could be referring to the dream selection of quality software for it. Both sound good to me!

I too remember hearing the name for the first time and thinking what a bad name choice it was lol. However I will die before I give up my Dreamcast it will always have a place in my gaming collection. And Shenmue will live on as a masterpiece of gaming.

I remember hearing the name Dreamcast and hating it. I thought the name was too "wimpy" or mainstream. Needless to say, I got used to the name and came to love the console for what it was, and not what it was called.
