NEC has responded to Sega's complaints that the company was responsible for significant delays to the manufacturer's forthcoming next-generation console, Dreamcast. The company responded to an email from an investor in Videologic with an admission that it was indeed to blame. "We had some trouble modifying the PowerVR 2 [graphics chip] for the Sega machine, which led to the delay of the total development schedule of the new chip," said Hajime Kinoshita, an NEC investor relations manager. "For that reason, NEC's shipment of the new chips to Sega is behind schedule." The PowerVR 2 was developed by Videologic, hence the investor's concern. Kinoshita pledged that NEC was "making every effort" to ramp up chip production and thus minimise the effect the delay has had on Dreamcast shipments. Sega originally complained that its goal of one million shipments of the new console by December had to be revised to Spring 1999. ® Click for more stories Click for story index
