Ravi Sinha writes: "So many features of the PS3 resonate with how Sega was handling the Dreamcast in its heyday. Several exceptions exist, but they're only so different in their timing, preparedness and resources. Both launched with a bevy of titles, but it was the Dreamcast that could be said to have gained more recognition in the exclusives with Sonic Adventure and Soul Calibur, whereas the PS3 was acclaimed foremost for Resistance: Fall of Man. Both followed their launch repertoires with high-ranking games - but while the Dreamcast leaned more towards fighting games and RPGs (Virtua Fighter III, Dead or Alive 2, Phantasy Star Online, Tech Romancer and Skies of Arcadia), the PS3 featured more variety (MGS4, LittleBigPlanet, Warhawk, Ratchet and Clank Future, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Killzone 2) with the single unifying theme being their large budgets. And needless to say, Sony and Sega both have had mixed success with accessories.
"However, in many ways, Sony has become the Sega we used to love."
