It might almost be as powerful as the PS5 or even the Sega CD.

Oh, so now the Wii U is suddenly twice as strong as a PS4? Boy, E3 sure couldn't come sooner to get all this back and forth spec nonsense straightened out.
That's assume ms or sonybshow anything . I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't.

Nevertheless I think that everybody wants to know the final specs of the Wii U. Oh, and you can expect both MS and Sony to at least show off some early working demos for their next-gen consoles.

Sega should make a surprise return to console gaming with the Genesis II. Launch line-up should include:

Sonic 4
Phantasy Star V
Space Harrier III
Streets of Rage 4
Landstalker 2
Gunstar Heroes Return
OutRun ~ Tropical Cruise
Thunder Force 0
Golden Axe ~ Death Adder's Revenge
Enter the Shinobi

YEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAH!

Yeah... wet dream wont happen. They are actually canceling projects atm.

I'd be happy if they at least finished off the Shenmue series. They make so many Yakuza games and the difference is not that substancial.

Problem there is Sega hasn't been making much quality software, so there's a chance that they'd tarnish the Shenmue franchise with some lackluster sequel.

The premise of my comment was that they go back to what made them so great to begin with. If it isn't broke, don't fix it. Think about how they built their reputation and try to bring back that magic. I think the graphic wars are overrated. Most of the high-tech software being released will be forgotten within a year or two anyway. Nobody really cares if Sega's not on the cutting edge of technology so long as they're making quality software. Case in point: I'd take a Streets of Rage 4 with 16/32-bit quality sprite work over one with the most up-to-date 3D graphics but little gameplay substance. 2D gaming has stronger lasting power.

At least wash it if you plan to have it on tv.

Also sega in its current state dont deserve to have a console.

I've been told not to comment on any hardware rumours of the Wii U. But I'd like to point out to people that as well as the full, HD game being played, content is constantly being streamed with little to no input lag to the screen on the controller too.
