it sure is...

but as much as people like to blame sony for killing the dreamcast, I have to disagree: they just got a better marketing department, and it's not a crime to have that. Sega should have known this.

Sony didn't kill the Dreamcast, Sega killed the Dreamcast. Like Betamax's signature says, "Superior marketing of an inferior product will always win over inferior marketing of a superior product." People will buy anything you want them to buy if you make them want to buy it.

yep...
sega didn't spend enough time marketing it (many people hardly even know what a dreamcast was until sega announced it they would stop it, ironically enough).

The stupid thing is it probably gets more attention now than it used to.
Why? the press jumped on it when sega killed another console.

Sometimes pranks come back to haunt you:eek:

As far as is known, Sega won't be releasing any more consoles, ever, period. Sega stated that they would rather get into the developement end of things and develope games for other systems. So far, I have heard of games being mentioned for X-Box, Game Cube, GBA, and PS2. Also there are rumors of Sega games coming for the PC as well. So, why worry about consoles when you can do just fine developing games for others.
BTW, IMHO, Sega Saturn is not superior to nor even the equal of the PSX. If it was, why did it fade so fast? Of course this is just how I feel.
sincerely,

The DC was superior to it's competition, yet it's gone. Your point? ;)

The Saturn had games of a level of quality that only a handful of PSX games have reached. It was just poor to develop for, and not well-received by the masses.

The PlayStation and it's mass pirating craze, and games-by-the-cart-full library, was welcomed by every John & Jane Kiddie. Of course, the PSX had a moderate amount quality titles that set it out from the rest, but it's not all that it's cracked up to be, IMO.

This is the US market, mind you. The Saturn's performance was radically different in Japan and the like.

The import scene on the saturn was incredible.. Tons of games in Japan never got translated and brought over.. Good games too..

Radiant Silvergun
Shining Force 3 senario2+
Grandia

to name a few.. The saturn is actually quite a powerful system that never was fully utillized.. The saturn had a 2d chip as well as 3d chips.. Which is why the Saturn excelled at 2d games.. The psx has to use its 3d gpu to render 2d stuff.. Ever wonder why 2d games slow down so much on the psx? The saturn also had more ram and the inclusion of the ram cart gave it even more.. I haven't seen any game on the psx that rivals Virtual Fighter 2 on the Saturn graphically IMO.. 60fps high res glory.. Even tekken 3 on the psx don't do that.. Well, the 60fps but not the high res.. hehe..

I played Tomb Raider 1 on both the psx and saturn.. The game looks better on the psx, but runs smoother on the Saturn.. :)
