First of all they sell the dreamcast at a loss in Japan saying there going to make it back on selling the games and then go bust and not only that never brought out the DVD player that they had already made and they did not bring out the ZIP drive that was suppose to come out as well and then they sold a microphone for £20 which was only compatible with planet ring and quake 3 what a waste of money that was. ...

8 May 2001
  • Excerpt: "...about the new console from Sega and the games that were going to be released along with it. Everyone was telling me to buy one, as it was going to be the best console around for games. But I already knew that the Dreamcast was gonna be big for a month or two then it would follow the same foot steps as the Sega Saturn did and I was right. Especially now the Playstation 2 and X-box is out, Sega just can’t keep up with the competition of consoles ...

29 April 2001
  • Excerpt: "...to the Dreamcast in the sega and sony battle, The dreamcast was clearly more powerful than the playstation, but the playstation had loads of games. The dreamcast is great machine which is at the moment showcasing games which look and feel just as good as the first games on the playstation 2. However the trouble is now sega have decided to stop making the dreamcast which means in the next few months shops stocks will dry up. You may be thinking ...

  • Excerpt: "First the Sega Saturn and now the Sega Dreamcast as Sega announced a couple of months a go to stop producing games for the Sega Dreamcast. This seems similar to what happened to the Sega Saturn as it just died out due to compettion from other consoles. The sad thing was that the Sega Dreamcast had the capabillity to produce good graphics and play good games but the games were never there and the choice of good games was certainly very limited. ...
  • Pros: It was capable of producing good graphics
  • Cons: Sega are not making any more games for it

I have Unreal Tournament on the PC and the detail with my old 12meg voodoo 2 knocks spots off Quake 3 on the Dreamcast. I must admit I haven't played this on the internet but I have played in both single and multiplayer mode, and the standard controls are ...
