This from a gamer who owns a PS2? :evil:I'm wondering how long they kept producing them / how much stock there is remaining...
ah, you're right. I heard it all wrong. :eyemove:
The concept was brilliant: A pure gaming console that is easy to develop for yet having great processing power. On top of that online gameplay out of the box and great games in every genre. It put the foundations of Xbox Live, and every Xbox fan certainly owes a lot to Sega in this aspect. They were too far ahead of their time in an era when people wanted their stuff to be well marketed and extremely mature. In the current market the DC would've done a lot better if only it had Nintendo's marketing. Back then all these mature games were hip, Sony catered that market with God of War, GTA, and that "Murder simulator" of which most people now already forgot the name again. Provided most of these violent series still sell well, they're not what they used to be like that, not in this politically anti-videoviolence climate where family values need to be promoted.the dreamcast concept was sound... it just failed to get off the ground unfortunately
The GDRom was a great protection mechanism, it still can't be read by any PC drive (except 1 or 2 after heavy modding), it's the complete absense of protection in the Dreamcast itself that did the trick. Again, a bit naive, unfortunately.The Dreamcast was a great idea and had a few issues been ironed out it could have done better, the GDROM protection wasn't that great, NOT having EA games on the Dreamcast hurt, people still angry about the previous hardware failures (Sega CD/32X/Saturn) was also a negative...
I really enjoyed my Dreamcast and still like the system.
:lol: I have 3[4 sitting in front of it, the one that's not hooked up being the Genesis I got from Goodwill for $4 with no hookups..]consoles hooked up to my tv: PS2, Dreamcast and Gamecube[XBOX/Wii's in the living room..]. Nothing wrong with that. I grew up a Nintendo fanboy but came to love nearly all consoles. I have like 10 or 12 now..This from a gamer who owns a PS2? :evil:
Yeah I own a PS2 as well... :innocent:
But I keep my PS2 in one room and the Dreamcast in another... Having both hooked up to the TV might be as bad as crossing the streams... :???: :evil:
