It's very simple. Sega's systems before DC sucked and ruined their fan base. DC didn't have a DVD player. I was one of the people that actually got a DC on 9/9/99. I remember friends missing out because the launch sucked.

You short cut the dreamcast for people whom did not grow up playing this they would underestimate the true run it had!

Dreamcast was the first Sega system I've ever owned (I started with atari 2600 so I'm old.) and I loved the Dreamcast.

The Dreamcast was the most mind-blowing, evolutionary system I ever had. I absolutely loved it and miss it. The controller was the BEST and you could play online. Crazy for 19 years ago!!!!!
If xbox was backward compatible with dreamcast games.. it would be great

What killed the Dreamcast? The Idiotic moron's managing it. I actually bought my Dreamcast for "Incoming" awesome game. Still have my Console (a spare) all my games and accessories. Soon as I knew it was dying, I bought up multiple pad's, memory cards, rumble Pak's, etc. It was going cheap last off. I was never really a Sega fan, but Dreamcast made me one. Brilliant console! Who could forget "Shenmue" "House of the Dead 2" "Millenium Soldier" and "Crazy Taxi". To name a few.

Sega is an amazing creative company, but their over exuberance & a few bean counting execs have ruined it. They also failed not to continue or include at the beginning some of their iconic game franchises, like Streets of Rage, Shinobi, Golden Axe ect. I would love to know what idiot decided not to include a DVD with the dream cast. Sonic, Crazy Taxi & Power Stone were incredibly fun games and it showed that sega still had it. But that 32X, GenesisCD & Saturn hardware failure really hurt them a lot.

I loved my Dreamcast. Had a subscription to the Official Dreamcast magazine also. It was larger than other magazines and came with a game demo CD each month. Was awesome.

To make it short, Microsoft Killed the Dreamcast. They just used the partnership with SEGA to get the Blueprints of the Dreamcast for their XBOX. Then, they left SEGA in the gutter to die. As soon as the Dreamcast died, Microsoft released XBOX. Thus, SEGA never ever released a new Console after the partnership with Microsoft.

U know what killed the dreamcast that after market remote that wasn't made by dreamcast burned all the remote ports on it good times I burned out 2 of them figured it out and pitched the remote 3rd one never broke ended up giving it to some one when I got next gen system
Ken Rose (14 days ago)
This video is not that accurate; the Dreamcast failed(and SEGA in general) because of bad management
The first reason the game costs Shenmu very expensive The second reason is the ease of gaming piracy and the accumulation of original games in the factory The reason for Sega's failure was because she was trusted in companies that do not have anything to do with football because the big companies that produce games like FIFA and PES did not work with Sega and Sega based on companies that did not understand anything about football. Sega has put her trust in companies that do not know the design of football games The PES, FIFA and WINING ELEVEN games for PSP2, Game Cube and Xbox were released ... This is one of the main reasons why people give up Sega

The Dreamcast wasn’t a failure because of arcade. I love the Dreamcast and still own one. It was the PS2 that killed it.

Ps2 killed the dreamcast dramatically and drastically dreamcast was only on store shelves for 561 days I believe wasn't that long until the ps2 took over by the wanted features it had

...There already was a *Dreamcast 2* it was called the *Microsoft Xbox* (Classic Xbox) first of all, when Sega’s hardware division chained up it’s doors, where do you think those people got jobs?!? Secondly...note the thing on front of the Dreamcast consoles which mention something about *Microsoft Windows CE* (Which provides proof that Sega was already somehow in bed with Microsoft in some way although, my understanding was that Windows CE was a Palm Operating System, for the original palm pilots of the 1999-2003 era so I’m still somewhat confused about how it’s applicable to a functional video game console). And 3rd I somewhat disagree on the “Death of Arcades brought on the Death of Sega” aspect of this video...you’ve lost sight of the fact that the Sega Dreamcast was really the very first system that came with a modem for online game play...that’s where video games headed...Xbox Live, PlayStation Network...Sega’s Online Network was BEFORE EITHER OF THEM

Nfl 2k and nba 2k were the most amazing sports games I think I've ever played when they came out. Nba 2k1 might be the best basketball game I've ever played. Live was always the game to have but once I played dreamcast nothing else compared. It was sad cuz no one had a dreamcast back then so no one would believe me (I didn't even have one I had a Playstation, I played on my neighbors dreamcast) lol about 6 yrs later no one played live anymore and nowadays 2k rules every yr. Haha they even stopped making live for a while

I remember going into Funcoland one sunday afternoon and they had "NFL 2K" playing on the monitors and saying to my girlfriend, "I thought it was a four o'clock game?" That's how good it looked at first glance. Also have fun memories of "R.E. Code Veronica", "Soul Caliber", and "Crazy Taxi". A nice system but couldn't stand up to the PS2 with games like "GTA-3" etc.....

Playstation is where it is at, waited for the PS2 instead, went from PS1, PS2, PS3, and now to PS4, I have the Dreamcast Emulator on my PC, so finally playing Dreamcast games after all these years, would of liked to bought a Sega Dreamcast back in 1999, but already bought the Playstation in 1998, and played it for a couple of years and lost interest for video games at the time, and finally bought a PS2 in 2004 when video games were improving, and stuck with the Playstation brand ever since

SabbathFan4Life316 (1 month ago)
The PS2 didnt kill the Dreamcast, Sega being run by a bunch of asshats did. All their dumb mistakes like the genesis add ons, the Saturn launch, snubbing Sony (to be fair Nintendo did the same but they made fewer mistakes) and pissing off third party developers (which is ironic considering during the Genesis era, Sega had the better rep among 3rd parties compared to Nintendo iirc) just came to bite them in the ass by the time the Dreamcast came around. So the Dreamcast was fucked from the getgo pretty much

Well they didn't fail because of me. I was an early supporter of the Genesis. As soon as I started my first job, I purchased a Genesis model 2 from Walmart. Also when I started working at McDonald's, I had a friend who was a few years older than me, introduce me to online gaming on the Dreamcast. Up until then, the only internet I've ever used was the computers in the school library to look up Game Genie codes from Galoob's website. I had no idea online gaming was even a thing. But I purchased a used Dreamcast at the Electronics boutique and oddly enough, it had all the documentation and still smelled like it was newely opened. I think the first purchaser tried it and returned it immediately but it wasn't defective. It worked just fine and my first online game was Phantasy Star Online. It was awesome and I played it every single day consistently for the next few years. Even after I got my Playstation 2 to play Everquest Online Adventures. I would go between both games and play them equally. I still have my Dreamcast and it works just fine. The plastic case is a little bit discolored from age though but I still have the box it came in.

No one is mentioning how sega killed off all third party support for their console by releasing it a lot earlier than they told third party publishers, effectively betraying their trust and ending support for the Dreamcast. By the way I loved the Dreamcast and wish it would of worked out better for sega.

In my opinion sega and Nintendo should hav merged back when they released the original game boy and game gear the Nintendo switch would probably be league's ahead of everyone amagine the kind of games they could hav made 25 years ago blowing are minds with all kinds of collaborative type games

I think ultimately dreamcast failed initially due to lack of rpg titles. While it had some good ones and its graphics were alot better than the ps1 it just didnt have the title quantity that Sony and Nintendo had. In the long run I would say it didnt fail as its last big company title released in 2015 which is 14 years after its discontinue. How many other consoles can boast that?
Chris McCue (1 month ago)
I'm a big Sega fan, and I was bummed out when the Sega console era ended. but even if it were an option for them to get back into the console market I'd want proof they'd learned from their mistakes in the '90s. I agree with you, focusing on just trying to make good games is fine. If they worked really hard at re-publishing their old library on Steam and other virtual consoles and made everyone love their brand, with that cash they could get back into some really high quality and creative games like they used to do.

I think the Sega Dreamcast just couldn't compete with the Sony PlayStation. I thought and still think the Dreamcast was the best system at that time. I loved the Power Stone series.

I have lots of fond memories playing my Sega Dreamcast. Sadly, the system's fate was sealed by Sega's mismanagement long before it ever came out. These days we have one true gaming company left producing home hardware (Nintendo), and two mass market companies that don't have nearly the level of innovation that we saw in the 90s.

Sega could have Recycled the Saturn when producing Dreamcast, instead of using Microsoft's Help.
