Game Over Dreamcast

Have you heard? The Dreamcast is calling it quits. The rumor started rolling its way across the net in January 2001. It seems that Sega didn't make enough cash on the Dreamcast so they're canning it as of March 2001.

Aaaaargh! Not again!

Sega did the same thing with the Sega Saturn. It came out, a bunch of people bought them, then whammo, no more Saturn. That sucked and so does this. There's a good reason Sega has a bad rep for its hardware.


Sega says they're keeping the Dreamcast alive by working with Pace Micro Technology to combine the Dreamcast with a Digital TV set-top box. This SOUNDS good, but the box is gonna cost a bundle and all the Dreamcast games you have now are toast. The set-top box doesn't have a cd drive. No cd-drive equals no cd-game. You've gotta pay to download 'em instead. That's right, download an entire game. My modem hurts just thinking about it. They say it'll take three minutes to download a game onto your system through the digital TV network. I'll believe it when I see it.


Sega's gonna stick to what they do best: making games. They make some of the best games you'll ever play. Games like Samba de Amigo, Crazy Taxi, Jet Grind Radio, etc. They'll be churning them out for the PS2, Xbox and no doubt for Nintendo. They'll be rockin' games but it's gonna cost a few hundred to get the system so you can play them. Do you have that kind of money lying around? Didn't think so.


Sega, good games, bad hardware. Keep that in mind next time they try to sell you a system.
