I my Dreamcast. Highly under-rated console, if Sega hadn't have screwed up the marketing and Sony fanboys weren't so obsessed with the PS2 at the time it would've done alot better. It was an innovative little beast. The joypad could've been better though.
The article was worth it for that quote alone.
Agreed TrolleyDave; too many people dismissed it as a poor console, but it was pretty freaking awesome, and it was fitting to be Sega's swan song. It's unfortunate however, that backups were playable almost immediately after burning. While it allowed access to pretty much every game in the Dreamcast's library, for free (that's a GOOD thing obviously), it's likely that it contributed to lower sales in the Dreamcast's software than what could've been, which hampered the console.
I'm probably wrong on a lot of accounts, but whatever, the DC was, and still IS an amazing machine.
Piracy was not the Dreamcast's downfall. Lousy 3rd party support and living in the ps2's shadow is what killed the console ultimately.
Yeah I know, the PS2 was the final nail in the coffin. I kinda forgot about that. ¬¬
I thought that piracy somewhat hurt the Dreamcast but, it didn't hurt it anywhere near as much as the popularity of Sony's (then) newest machine.
I agree with TD and SonicraX.
DC was the best system Eva.
Too bad i only have SA1 and SA2 (Japanese version) (Which it cannot play because for some reason it isnt region free).
I thought the Sonic Adventure games were awesome. If sonic games today kept that level of quality or better, they would have done much much better on the market.
It's a shame the dreamcast lost. I'm still a bit fan of most the SEGA stuff, and I still have my old Dreamcast (And Megadrive, for that matter). I still think the Dreamcast is a really good console.
My brother really wants a Dreamcast because he wants to play Sonic Adventure. I don't know why....
the dreamcast has that arcade/retro appeal - it was unmatched for it's fighting/shmup games and had perfect arcade ports, these games have aged very well and as such the dreamcast still has that hard core following.
However it did not have equivlents games which were the popular flavours of that time say 'metal gear', 'resident evil', 'rogue squad' nor did it have a casual appeal so people largely igorned it. It was only a few years agao i picked up a DC for £10 and realised just how good some of the games were, but it's a very concentrated range of genres which has huge appeal for me but i suspect not so mainstream
Sega should make a comeback to the Console wars but i doubt they will although i love sonic i think its about time they just kill him off because they're killing his reputation more and more with every release its sad what they have done to that poor hedgehog but yes dreamcast was awesome with Shenmue and Jet Grind Radio =D
Because the game and console is freaking awesome!
My brother gave me his Dreamcast the other day. Such an awesome system.
well technically the dreamcast isn't dead or not completely seeing as games are still sorta shadily made for the system in china.
though the same can be said for the NES with all the knockoff famiclones with pirate 100 in 1 carts it still churns out every year.
Alas, such a shame, so much potential...
Lot of 'what if's' there though
