The Dreamcast was an amazing console. It almost lived on too. We almost had Dreamcast games backwards compatible on the XBOX, but Microsoft's deal breaker was the online multiplayer. "...only XBOX games on XBOX servers."
Dreamcast released 1,5 years ahead of PS2. Its lot of time.
The reason of its doom was not the missing dvd rom. Games were not that huge in that time. The problem was more complex
1 - they faked up the US release. all the big western companies turned their back on SEGA. No EA games came out.
2 - They simply run out of money.
3 - No games to compete with playstation. They had skies of arcadia, and shenmue, but where is Final Fantasy, or MGS. Comparing Sega GT to Gran Turismo or Need for speed is a joke.
On the list you could pack all SEGA consoles after Megadrive. Probably they all failed. 32x, MegaCD, Saturn all were major flops. the Flop of DC was the final nail in SEGA coffin. As I feel Nintendo will follow. They will focus on handheld in the future in my oppinion.
Fun fact: shortly after helping develop the Sega Dreamcast, a small portion of Microsoft employees who were helping develop the console ditched Sega, tore apart an HP computer, and proceeded to make Xbox.
how about Sega Saturn? and ugh your right like everyone else with the stupid DVD drive Sega should of went thru with it but they said they would not think anyone will catch on to it like the laser disc and vcd top of they said it would of been too expensive for them and the public to make in 1999 of release just proves ps2 never could of competed game wise
The Hyper Scan Combining cards and gaming It was a neat idea but the port for the power cord was known to break off, ruining the system. Also after a few uses the cards just didn't seem to work anymore. I still have mine but cant play it because of the power issue I mentioned earlier. It was really fun when I did get to play it and it was affordable.
o and the ylod on the ps3 sucks it happened to my ps3 so i let it cool down for 3 hours then i turned it on and suprisingly it worked for 2 hours then died. it never turned on again so i remembered i had a warrenty so i got a refurbished one that previously got the ylod because the fan and the power supply stopped working
nowadays Sega is just putting out shitty Sonic games to milk the franchise for every penny they can. Sega is pretty much a joke these days. They were doing good as a 3rd party developer, with Super Monkey Ball and Jet Set Radio for example, but now its just sad.
Now that this video has broken 10k views I will let you in on a secret. This is actually one of my favorite scripts I have ever written! Researching and talking about old game consoles is one of my secret passions in life :P
+Austin Elliott How come? Surely its not that bad? I mean, I dont own one, so i dont know how good it is, and the concept with all of its "features" sounded outright horrible (most things were fixed, I've heard), but it has a decent array of games and so.
Microsoft Xbox. Sixth gen. Microsoft announcing they were already in development of another console practically killed this thing off for a lot of developers. I think a lot of early 360 titles look like they could've made their way on to the original Xbox.
This is a funny story of how I found your channel:
I used to rely on IGN for game reviews, but as we all know by now, they're pretty much untrustworthy. So I'm searching YouTube for a good reviewer, and I found your channel. That was 1 year ago, back when you first started, and I've always watched all of your videos since
Randy Rogers I have to disagree with that statement as compared to the sales of other Nintendo systems it was pretty poor. As it lasted only 4 years in production, the release of the Switch was meant to hide the mistake they had made
I'll never forget the feelings playing sonic adventure and crazy taxi for the first time on my dreamcast. Too bad I traded it a couple years later for a ps2 :(. I've got one again now as an adult though :P.
I LOVED my Dreamcast! So many great games on it. I wish Sega would revive or at least port some more of the DC's library. I would be more than willing to pay full price for Skies of Arcadia... again. They don't even have to upscale it, just port it to the PS4 and I would be in heaven!
To everyone saying "WII U!"...The Wii U isn't really a failure. A flop of sorts? Sure, but they've still sold 10,000,000 units and counting, which is nowhere near as catastrophic as the consoles on the list. Most of these companies never made a console again. Plus The Wii U still has at least a year and a half of life, with a couple big titles like Star Fox 0 and Zelda U yet to come out. And even with the NX does come out, Nintendo has stated they wouldn't be dumping support for the Wii U right away anyways, so...~*shrug*~ No matter how much people love to hate on it, its situation not that horrendous to be on a list like this.
