Sega Dreamcast Console


System works pretty good, no problems with mine. All items, games included can easily be found on the internet. I found many of the games much fun, and like it better than play station. ps2 and xbox may have some rival games, but pound for pound...

Lots of fun, reliable, pretty good graphics

Not made anymore, games can be more difficult to find, memory cards eat up batteries

Sega Dreamcast Console

Product Specifications

Dreamcast features include 128-bit performance from a reduced instruction set computing (RISC) central processor, an independent 3D graphics engine and a dedicated 3D sound chip. Dreamcast uses a Visual Memory System (VMS) with a built-in LCD screen. Gamers can choose plays in sports games or plan offensive moves in RPG games without their challengers clueing in. You can also save special characters, moves or teams to the VMS, and swap info with your fellow Dreamcast owners by connecting your VMS card to theirs.
