MS helped make the Dreamcast...if it survived to make a DC 2 then The OG Xbox wouldn't have come out... PS 2 would have still survived
The reason DC was phased out was because of sales lost to PS2...you're tryna change too much. You would have to change the fact that sony was making more, and better games than Sega was at the time. If it was the other way around, how would the ps2 possibly survive? What would the incentive be? I'm sure MS would've tried to enter in the console game by themselves though. But maybe not.
But like I said, the Xbox was better than the DC, and I don't think Sega worked on the original Xbox, so knowing they can make a better console better than anything on the market by themselves, they most likely would've entered in the console race solo.
