The Sega Dreamcast, the David of consoles. Some might wonder what a Dreamcast is, while others get all nostalgic when hearing the name.
Sega’s Dreamcast was the first sixth generation console to release back in 1999. Nintendo and Sony hadn’t released their new consoles (Gamecube and the PS2) yet and Microsoft was busy working on their first console entry – The Xbox.
Unfortunately Sega decided to pull the plug from the Dreamcast in 2001 after disappointing sales.
The console managed to sell more than 10 million units globally in it’s 2.5 years of existence. After this withdrawal Sega quit as console designer and became a third-party developer. Sega has been a shadow , a shell of it’s former self ever since.
