Working Dreamcast Hard Drive

Carl Williams writes, "The Sega Dreamcast is a console that probably has had the most new games, new hardware interfaces, hacks, etc released for it after it was commercially dead. Take this new hack for instance, a hard drive interface. One that really works. Read on for more information." (Retro)

A working hdd... WOW I'm excited.

In all seriousness, it was ahead of its time. Had some great games. A boxing game in particular, can't remember what it was called though. I was always the sumo guy

And the in built browzer was slow as fck but kind of amazing at the same time lol as it had never been done before

Ready 2 Rumble Boxing was the boxing game, I believe, you are thinking of.

I agree, the Dreamcast was ahead of its time in many ways.

Dreamcast is the greatest console ever.......too bad it was supported by Sega who at the time had no money and no vision.

Dreamcast with Genesis money and vision and we be Buying Dreamcast 5 or 6.

I believe they had plenty of vision. That's why the console was ahead of its time. :)

Best gameing console I ever had. Shame that low life pirates killed it. Gaming on consoles haven't been as fun since it's death.

100 percent with you bro. Had a good time with the original xbox. You should build a PC

It had nothing to do with pirating, it went under due to competition, N64 and PS2. PS2 suffered from pirating back then too yet look how it well it did.

@JaXion5

I lived it! Pirating was the major contributing factor. Shortly after release a group online created a hack that you could burn to a CD to load pirated games.

Sales of games plummeted so publishers abandoned the platform. Sega put out a hardware revision that patched the exploit (see black Dreamcast) but it was too late.

By comparison, the PS2 was not nearly as easy to hack...

I recall great games like Vanishing Point, MDK 2,and Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare.

The DC was way ahead of its time. Direct from arcade ports made it my all time favorite home console. I say home console because my favorite all time is probably the Neo Geo because of the Metal Slug and Samurai Shodown series.

Kinda helped when sagas arcade platform was dreamcast based (NAOMI)
jwm2  +   365d ago
Oh absolutely. I grew up in the arcades and SEGA made many of my favorites. To this day I still play the DC and enjoy it the same way I did 12-14 years ago.

Dreamcast just had games that were outright fun to play.
jwm2  +   365d ago
Yes they had to. The games were designed to take your quarters, to keep you coming back for more. You could enjoy them in small doses and in 30 minutes felt like playing some more. Those are the games I love.
