Electronics giant Sega unveiled its consumer video conferencing system, codenamed Dream Eye, in Tokyo today.
Dream Eye, which is the first in a line of peripherals planned for Sega's Dreamcast game console, will ship in Europe in time for Christmas. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.
The system comprises a pad and microphone, and the connection is made through a standard home telephone jack.
Jean-Francois Cecillon, Sega's European chief executive, said the company is working on a line of peripherals, including zip drives, DVD, and downloading music to devices.
Sega is also examining the mobile phone market and portable gaming. "This is an explosive market and we will be there," said Cecillon.
