DVD and Sony signing publishers to not put games on the system comparable to what Sony was doing to Xbox.

No, EA not fukkin with Sega was HUGE.

Easy Piracy
No EA
Sins Of The Dreamcast

that's why they failed.

Not to mention, the PS1 had game heat and being everyone's first DVD player.

He who holds EA controls the market. The Super Nintendo is/was the pinnacle of gaming if you understand evolution…


… that was a dope ass quote and needed to be left alone :hubie:

But even the mighty mighty snes struggled vs the lesser known Sega genesis. The master system made no noise in the us (but was a dope system itself)

everything Sega did between it and the Genesis really hurt their standing

and PS2 being fire and coming with the DVD player pretty much nailed that coffin shut

Sega's 7 years of transgressions preceding it basically doomed the whole console. It sold historically well out the gate but they burned so many bridges with their mishandling of the Saturn that when the PS2 came around, they didn't have the necessary support from third-party developers and retailers to compete. And since Sega was deep in the red (they needed a stimmy from their former president purely out of the goodness of his heart to keep from going bankrupt), it just wasn't feasible to stay in the console business.

Dreamcast actually had superior hardware and specs to the PS2 but PS2 supporting DVDs in a time where DVD players were DUMB expensive was an underrated game changer, too. DC only supported GD-ROMs


Close thread.

Its never too late to jump in, dreamcast has probably the best post-production community out of all the retro-consoles, games still being made for it today and all kinds of tricks. The ability to go online with it has even been revived

Dreamcast just recently got access to many Atmoswave games like KOF 11 and Guilty Gear Isuka
