Andriasang: If you're a Sega maniac, you'll want to put your ¥38,000 down now for this portable Dreamcast, which will be available at PachimonTV in June.
Hah, that's a pretty cool idea, but that thing is MASSIVE.
O...M...G! I hope this finds its way to the UK! Some of my all time fave games are on the DC! It had so many classics!
i want one i will import one if need be. looks mad
How much is that in American dollars?
WOW NVM lol
i have a dreamcast and all the games and played them all aswell but not worth playing to me never use it just sits gathering dust.
With tax over $500.00 USD!!!!! I would get one but that is just to steep.
It's like buying a PS2 all over again. That was the listed price when released.
Dreamcast sucked. It released too early considering PS and N64 was on fire during Dreamcast 1st year. And of a system called PS2 came out a yr later. The tech was there but where was the 3rd party support? EA of all people skipped the Dreamcast completely. Alot of the 3rd party companies who did release games were just mostly ported PS and N64 games. Edit. just saw the pic and that thing is awful looking. also why would anybody buy this considering the limited library and no future titles. Or am I missing something? Edit 2 They be better off porting these games to PSP/DS/NGP/3DS/Ipod/Ipad.
I could see people buying it for nostalgic purposes. But expecting people to pay almost $500 is absolutely ridiculous. Hell, next-gen consoles don't even cost that much any more. D: I'd expect a portable console that plays old games to be about $100, maybe $150 at the very very most.
Well you never know; some people spend huge cash on the most useless things.
released too early....hmm would you say 3DS released too early? what if wii2 releases too early as well? Could they suffer same fate?
With NGP about to release, & the fact that you can get a PSP for pittance compared to this, and you can play a lot of Sega games on PSP, as well as emulation for Dreamcast where all games would at least be in english.....it seems like a waste releasing this thing. Add to the fact that PSP can run emulation software for Dreamcast, it can also do for, for Saturn, Megadrive/Genesis, Master System & just about any other past consoles, not to mention it plays the games that we actually wanna PLAY, instead of just looking back at them hoping for fond memories, when in most cases (unlike with a song or movie) games we love from yesteryear usually end with us looking back & thinking, "wow, this looks like crap compared to what I remember". The fact is that graphics come along SOO far, so quickly, that from one gen, to the end of the next gen, can make you look back at a game you remember being the most graphically beautiful game you'd ever seen at that time back then half way through the lifecycle of last gen console, being at the end of a current gens lifecycle or very early into the gen after that, all of a sudden you are looking back at a 5-7yr old game.......it now looks pretty ordinary due to how far visuals have come since then. This is especially moreso, due to the transition of 2d into 3d ploygonal games. PS1 games like Driver, that I remember being high tech state of the art awesome 3d graphics at the time, look barely distiguishable to gamers now.......they look like block, muddy, messes. You look at PS2 graphics & things had come together a helluva lot more, the blocky blurryness, had become less convaluted, sharper & such....but were still fairly rough around the edges, now with PS3/360 things have come into there own....so much so, that graphics are not improving quite at the rate they were from PS1 to now. Just like 2d got to a point where they had almost hit there pinnacle, I imagine 3d graphics is at a similar point, & maybe a new technology to make games look more life like is on the verge, or needs to be discovered to take us forward in leaps & bounds...Maybe I'm wrong, who knows. Whoops, the point....What is the point of an over expensive handheld console that nobody bought as a full scale console, when it was new technology & should have been sought after by gamers at the time.....If not enough people wanted it then, then nobody in there right mind would want a handheld, overpriced version of it now. Just not logical....Makes more sense to release a Genesis handheld with a few hundred games pre-loaded onto it.
I bought Driver earlier this year znd of course it looks good. on PS3, but I alsoplayed it on a PS1 system on regular TV and it looks great to me. I have to it test again though.
It's decade too late..
