Ohh the Dreamcast , what a machine, for me the most exciting games console i have owned. so many games of high quality which came out every month. Japan Numbers are seeming low ,but then it released a year before the rest of the world in Japan with only a few games, Sega Rally 2 , Virtua Fighter 3TB ,Godzilla Generations and Seventh Cross i believe. Not much of a launch bonanza. Unlike the USA and Europe launches. They should have waited a year and done a global launch ,having the games they had at European launch for a Japanese launch would have bagged them many more sales ..
Instead of leaving Dreamcast on store shelves in Japan. It truly was a great piece of kit. new high end graphics, Online play, the Internet , i never had a PC at this time ,Dreamcast opened up the internet for me. I did my first online ordering on my Dreamcast .
Bleemcast - what a brilliant piece of software, shame the court battle cost the Bleemcast guys so much. How crazy is it . Tekken 3 ,Grand Turismo 2 and Metal Gear Solid run better on Dreamcast and look better then on Sony's PS1 ,PS2 and PS3.
The only reason i bought my PS2 was to play Virtua Fighter 4 ,which was programmed for Dreamcast but never released, probably due to the DC version being much better then the PS2.
Dreamcast was a beast and till this day it remains so. Play Sturmwind and tell me that it doesn't look as good as Resogun or any other shooter of this style on our current systems.
Dreamcast -- The day it was discontinued - True Gaming died a little
