With a new price drop and an unexpected surge in demand in Japan, Dreamcast production has resumed, although for a very limited run. CRI, a Sega subsidiary, will produce 2000 black Dreamcast units, which can be preordered starting next week. The final units will ship to customers in February or March 2002. Sega abandoned costly Dreamcast production due to the financial drain the modest-selling console was inflicting on the company. Sega has since returned to its core expertise of game development.
No plans have been announced for the North American market where Dreamcast consoles are available for $50.
