History of the Sega Dreamcast


Launched in September 1999 in the US and October 1999 in Europe.

Used a special type of discs called GD-ROM discs.

Great set of launch titles: Soul Calibur, Sonic Adventure, Power Stone, The House of the Dead 2.

Sega continued to bring out great games like Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio and Shenmue.

Third party developers created games like Quake 3 Arena, Marvel vs Capcom 2 and Resident Evil.

EA games were never released games for the Dreamcast, many Fifa fans bought a PS2.

Eventually the PS2 was more popular because it supported DVD movies and Sega stopped selling the Dreamcast. 10.6 million units were sold worldwide.


Finally, after so many years I got this domain back where it belongs.

The goal is to keep the Dreamcast alive and write some blogs about the past and also the future of the Dreamcast.
