this is a joke...right? terrible terrible console

darthv722631d ago (Edited 2631d ago )

sheep has never played one. I have many DC games I would love to see remastered on psn/xbla. Propeller arena and alien front online are a must.

9/9/99 FTW!

You a fool if you think the Dreamcast was a bad console. It had so many killer games and spawned many franchises. Hell even 2K sports games started there

underrate console, not terrible.

bumnut2631d ago

It was not very popular in the uk but it is one of my all time favourite consoles.

NJShadow2631d ago

Your comment is a joke. The Dreamcast was a great console with phenomenal games. Don't hate just because you weren't privileged enough to have owned one.

wray772631d ago

Your comment is a joke right? If not, then you're either too young or too ignorant to appreciate what it was like to own a Dreamcast back in the day. Nice clean graphics (compared to the consoles of the time)fun games with friends in person or online.

ArthurLee2631d ago

jinofthesheep you are JOKE. The Dreamcast was HD with the use of the VGA cable in 1999 you fool! Its versions of Capcom fighters destroyed the PS2 versions. Were you even born yet in 1999 when the Dreamcast was released? Cause it sure doesn't sound like it.

Dreamcast was one of my all time favorite consoles. So many good games that jinofthesheep missed out on lol

specialguest2631d ago

How can Dreamcast turn 11, when it died almost a decade ago??

Elven62630d ago

SEGA of Japan still releases Dreamcast games every now and then, a few other Japanese developers also release arcade ports.

Not to mention the fantastic homebrew community.

Shane Kim2630d ago

Gotta agree with jinofsheep. I have one, and only a handful of games are worth playing. Every Sega console after Genesis (wich would be Saturn and DC) was just crappy.

A tribute to the Dreamcast.

R.I.P and you should be happy to know that the console brand that killed you is in 3rd place this Gen with the Wii kicking a$$.

Karma is a b!tch.

milohighclub2631d ago

Wizziokid2631d ago

I loved this console, I wish it was a success but it was ahead of it's time. So many good gaming memories on that console.

R.I.P dreamcast and Happy Birthday!

darthv722631d ago

it is a success. It made the notion of console gaming online a reality. Not only for competitive/cooperative gameplay but also surfing the web.

Granted, it was not THE first console to game online but it did it way better than the previous attempts. From that moment, we can look at it as the tipping point for setting the basis to what we use now.

This console is the shit got one sitting next to my tv still play it till this day. This console had so much to give us its a shame it all went to waste.

I still have my software etc DC collectors ed store bag from when my wife bought it for my birthday.

I have mine connected to the vga port of my samsung 42" plasma. It makes the games appear stretched but oh man the clarity.

I wish the DC offered support for widescreen though.

KillerPwned2631d ago

O wow i wish i had that i only got the box with the instructions 2 controllers with 2 VMU`s 12 games all in orgional cases. I need to get more and build a stronger collection. I love yours
