While Nintendo Co Ltd is contenting itself with on-line share prices, Sega Enterprises Ltd and Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corp are to develop a videophone. The videophone will be in the form of a $265 adaptor based on Hitachi Ltd’s Super-H RISC chip which powers the Saturn games console. It is expected by mid summer. Sega is targeting first year sales at 20,000 adaptors, and the two plan to develop new applications for the videophone in the entertainment, education and medical fields. Sega’s position in the games console market has taken a severe knocking from Nintendo’s 64-bit console, the N64, and Sony’s 32- bit console, PlayStation. Until recently, Sony had the pitch to itself, but Nintendo has proven itself to be a worthy rival, running itself to the top of the charts since the N64’s release in late September(CI No 3,065).
