Sega and Microsoft in possible games tie-up

Japanese sources report that Sega Enterprises is developing a powerful 128-bit microprocessor powered video game console in partnership with Microsoft.
Both companies have declined to confirm the reports. However, Sega is known to be working on a new video game console code named Black Belt that will likely use a high speed graphics chip set from NEC.
Microsoft has made a major push in recent months into video game software with technologies that improve games performance on PCs. The Windows CE operating system has been optimised to make use of RISC microprocessors which could give Sega an opportunity to produce a Windows CE based video games console. However, Sega and rivals Nintendo and Sony rely strongly on proprietary hardware and software technologies to help distinguish their products in the marketplace.
