View Full Version : If Dreamcast died tomorrow would you........

Buy another Sega console? I can say that I would NOT. Sega has a history of making consoles underpowered compared to the competition. But of course, Sega is always first in bring theirs out. Why doesnt Sega make a machine that wont be technically inferior in a year? PSX's architecture was planned out VERY well when considering what will be needed to compete for many years like it has done. DC is more than holding its own against PS2 right now, and makes it look sick even. Sega made good choices with DC, but they could have beefed it up a little more. Like I said, it is holding its own.

But for Sega to get anymore of my money, they will have to build a monster machine in the future. Long live Dreamcast.

I would. I've gotten more games for my Dreamcast, then I have for any other system I've owned. And all of them are awesome. It has become my favorite console of all time. I had a Saturn too... Actually I still have it.

If that were the case I’d buy all (or as many) closeout “DC games”, that would surly be in bargain bins @ $9.99 or less.

Hell I might even open my brand new “sealed, bought on 10.26.00” PS2 and bust-open still sealed games too.

Yeah but the PSX was technically inferior to the N64,, and it still whooped it's preverbial ass. Point is that, the leap from DC to PS2 is minute, not enough to call the DC "underpowered" in the least.

I don't think the DC is by any means underpowered. I mean, for the time it came out it really kicked the proverbial @$$, but like always technology moves foward and the curious thing about technology is that when it leaps it does it exponentially.

Soooo, when a new gadget comes out it USUALLY leaves others in the dust.

I don't Sega could have made the DC more powerful without incurring a loss WAY bigger than the one they experienced.

ANYWAY, to play devil, the Master System was more powerful than the NES. The Genesis was faster than the SNES, it just didn't had the special effects the SNES had (mode 7, etc.). The Saturn was a powerhouse too, it just didn't had the hardware special affects that the PSX had, so it didn't look as good. They designed a 2D machine, not a 3D one, "slight mistake".

BUT to answer your question, YES, I would buy a Sega console again anytime. They have proven themselves to me that they are back on track and the DC has more quality games in its early age than any other console out there, what else could a gamer ask?

If Sega makes another console, I'll buy it. Unless, of course, it sucks ass.

If playing one of --if not the-- greatest game of all time is "lame" then sign me up for biggest lamer around. Calling Cannon Spike a "real" game (as opposed to a fake one?) is just pompus. Don't try to elevate yourself over other people here just because you are pumped about some run of the mill shooter from Capcom.

With the 150-175 games that are out now, I bet that I would be very happy with at least 50 of them. Dreamcast is the best console I ever owned (yep, beating the SNES which once held the title) and I doubt it if Sega will drop the console in 2001. They may announce a new Sega console, sure, but when you think about it, that would be 3 years in Japan, meaning Sega didn't abandon it. Keep in mind I said announced, not released. I bet the next console will come out Holiday 2002 and Fall 2003 in America/Europe. However there will be Dreamcast games made into 2004 or possibly 2005 depending on how popular the Dreamcast became in America. No doubt is Sega in the backscenes making their new console but if Dreamcast is a success in the Western Half, it may be delayed a little longer in America.

Like any console, there needs to be 10 AAA titles that already came out. I bought a DC on impulse and its the best damn impulse purchase I ever made. I won't get it until I am in college or out working after graduating from college. By then, I should be able to pick up some hot Dreamcast 2 titles and be a happy gamer.
