Take a look at Sega's beautiful, doomed Dreamcast (pictures)

The Dreamcast is perhaps gaming's most glorious failure. The latest episode of Adventures in Tech tells the story of Sega's incredibly innovative yet ultimately doomed console, and to celebrate we've compiled a gallery of gorgeous Dreamcast photos.

Without the dreamcast the ps4 wouldn't be as amazing as it is because the dreamcast set the trend for alot of amazing features available today on modern consoles

Great console I remember playing virtua tennis on it and it was so fun but it died so quickly, sad

Oh my! Those was my favorite games! Powerstone to play with friends was just as hilarious as bomberman for N64, and Grandia 2 its one of my alltime personal best rpg

Dont forget Jet Set Radio, Shemnue, Virtua Tennis, Code Veronica...

Tears flowing down...

i can go on and on with how rich in hits the DC gaming library was..... I cannot BELIEVE why it failed suddenly, i just can't!

I still have my Dreamcast hooked up in the living room along with my PS4. I still play it at least once a week. Can't get enough House of the Dead!

The WiiU to me is like a successor to the Dreamcast. VMU's were great at the time, but the WiiU controller really takes the concept to the next level.

DigitalRaptor1404d ago

I feel the same way about the Wii U's gamepad.

Except Sega led the way with innovative online features. Wii U is getting some really cool games, but nothing on the level of Shenmue. Dreamcast had its crown jewel within one year of the console being on the market.

Death1404d ago

I still have my launch unit along with a couple NIB ones just in case. Probably my favorite console to date. The games still look and play great.

thereapersson1404d ago

Even as much of a PlayStation fan as I am, I sometimes ponder what gaming would be like currently had it been the DreamCast that won the console battle and not the PS2. Heck, everyone can see that the DreamCast had some great features - the first console to have an online option out of the box, for example.

never came out in Australia so I have no attachment to this thing.

WonderboyIII1404d ago

No it did. I bought it here from Bankstown (Sydney) with Shenmue. I still have the console.

Fishy Fingers1404d ago

One of my favourite consoles of all time.

HappyWithOneBubble1404d ago

I never had a Dreamcast. At the time PS1 was too good to even care for another console. Then the PS2 came lol.
