All of those worried on Dreamcast's success can take stock in a little bit of optimism tonight. Current projects of consoles sold-through (which means consoles in the possession of consumers) will top six million by 2001. In the press release, Chris Belfield, director of marketing communications at SOA said that through "programs and marketing" the company would combat the PS2 and Dolphin in coming months.
Furthermore, Sega of America is very optimstic that the six million number will be attainable by next year. For instance, they sight the fact Dreamcast will be the only console to allow out-of-the-box on-line gaming and e-mail opportunities. "This will be a fully sustainable business model and provide for a healthy revenue stream," Mr. Bellfield also said.
