Dreamcast is the best ever
The dreamcast totaly rules it is easily the best console ever. i never had the money to by a videogame console. when i was little I fell in love with sonic since than i been a sega fan i always hated how nes. Was always on top. SEGA always was the best in my book it just didnt have the money and the power to stand up to the cheap nes not to say that nes sucks but it was cheap and in some ways superior to sega though minnor differences. The dreamcast was and is the next generation of gamming and started it all. Later on the x-box stole it\'s idenity and with it hyped up computer software stupid typical americans fall prey to the sort of thing do to there egos and their jealousy and envy of the japanese destroyed Dreamcat name in america. So it never reach it true potienal in the us market it not hard in japan they praticaly breathe videogames It is culutural not just veiw as dolar signs. The Dreamcast was simple, original, powerful with great quality and potintal. Because of this it constricted with no limits. It keep pepole fome complaning about every little thing so americans didn\'t like it. They got have a game consule do every thing hell with your Xbox you dont need a computer anymore. No self independence what so ever no individuality and that what americans call freedom. So since i dont speak japanese im screwed but i think the dreamcast sould make a come back and crush them all. With full power of the japanese market behide it with the us cosent. I dont compltley think that it is the consumer i belive this ocured because american businessmen fear it potiental. Its to Authentic for their taste.

DC still remains a classic
This was my first console- And I loved it. The graphics can still be matched to current gen, and the controller is very comfy. Xbox gamers will be reminicient of the predecessor of the Controller S; PS2 fans can appreciate the colour-bled graphics, and Nintendo gamers can browse around the great titles on offer. Although it is not in service now, Dreamcast Online was what started it all, and Xbox Live would be, well, non existent. My DC is a little cranky from time to time, but after hours of Resi 4 or Burnout 3, I like to sit down with my DC, and play Sonic Adventure 2. For me, this is the definitive console that really did start it all- it\'s a bit like the McLaren F1 against the Bugatti Veyron; there would have been no contender for the fastest car in the world if McLaren hadn\'t bothered- and one thing is for sure-Sega\'s last console will never be forgotten.

This is really a good console.
I really loved all the fun i had on my dreamcast, but perhaps its for the better that they are purely concentrating on games... Its alot easier this way as we won\'t have to get seperate consoles for everything and it also means that more money would go into games as they won\'t have to spend on console development anymore

This Console mark the end of a great time for us Video-Gamers - The end of SEGA!

I\'ve never understood why SEGA was behind theircompetitors but one for sure: Everybody who was trusting the company saw who is really best - PHANTASY STAR 1 - 4 was everytime better than FINAL FANTASY 1-6, SHINOBI was unreached in the MEGA DRIVE-times and many more.

Firms like Konami and EA maybe Square too was guild that the Dreamcast couldn\'t live longer. The Machine has big Qualitys!!! The proof - Games exists on PSII and Dreamcast where better on Dreamcast! And the PSII it\'s better than Gamecube. So the Dreamcast could exist besides the new consoles...

become an indie-gamer :3
Feel like a drop in a sea of generic gamers? standout! Dreamcast will change the way you play and think about videogames, revealing the dreamcast niche: originality, simplicity and quality. Offering a wide range of outrageous japanese titles, this is a must have for fans of all things sega. Just because dreamcast consoles are no longer produced doesn\'t mean you can\'t enjoy the fruits of sega\'s hard work between 1999 and 2003, there are a lifetime\'s worth of games to be played on the sega dreamcast, and a whole lot of them available from playasia! I\'d easily give away my xbox and ps2 if it meant I couldn\'t have my dreamcast and copy of jet set radio - if that\'s not proof enough of how brilliant the dc is, then I don\'t know what is. :3
