It Lives! The Sega Dreamcast

Do you know what happened to the Sega Dreamcast?

Here's the story:

The Dreamcast leapt into stores in late 1999. It was the first 32-bit system to hit the market and it did well. It had wicked graphics, kick butt sound effects, a built in modem and a ton of Sega's brilliant games. For a while the Dreamcast was king.

Then in January of 2001 Sega announced the end of the Dreamcast. It was cancelled. That was it - kaput, no more games, no more add-ons, nothin'. Sega (the company that makes the Dreamcast) wasn't making enough money from selling the system, so they decided to stick to making just games. Ugh, that sucked.

Now it seems that the little white box might have one more continue left.


In a deal with Sony (the company that makes the Playstation 2) Sega has worked out a way to let online Dreamcast players go head-to-head against other players on the Playstation 2. What's happening is that Sega is making different versions of its games for Dreamcast and Playstation 2. You'll still need the one that goes with your system then you'll be able to play against anybody who has the game.


Discussions with Nintendo and Microsoft might lead to being able to compete against the GameCube, PS2, Xbox or even someone on a computer. That way you can play against way more people than just the ones on the Dreamcast. It'll be a total score if it works.


So far, the only game this works for is Guru-Guru Onsen 2 and it's only available in Japan. Sega hasn't confirmed anything yet but it'll be great news for Dreamcast owners when it does happen.
