Saturn--not Dreamcast--pioneered console LAN

Beer + Videogames... (Gaming Fact of the Week) No, it’s not a typo.

Well no duh. Dreamcast was even compatible with Windows. And you gotta realize that Peter Moore - a main contributor to the Xbox brand - first worked on the Dreamcast.

In many ways Xbox was the Dreamcast 2.0: similar controller, built-in online, 4 controller ports, etc.

I remember playing online with the dreamcast 56k internet. It had free online through netzero or you could use your AOL account. It had a web browser too. Take that 360!

Yup! all that you posted there is true but the majority of ignorant gamers chooses PS over dreamcast.

Then ms xbox show up with better online service and better software but the majority of ignorant gamers once again choose PS2 over xbox.

and with that "Take that 360!" you are going to get a lot of agrees CONGRATULATONS

Saturn's design was gorgeous. It still looks extremely sexy! Nothing beats PS3 fat though but still, if you compare Saturn with even today's console, it looks fantastic. FAR better than Xbox 1/360/360s, Wii, Gamecube, N64 heck even the original fat PS2.
