Dreamcast 10th anniversary

Sega Dreamcast is 10 years old or there about. The console was released in Japan on November 27, 1998. US September 9, 1999 and in Europe and Australia on October 14, 1999.

The Dreamcast was Sega’s last console and was actually a short-lived one. It was discontinued after around 3 years in most part of the world, but it lived until 2006 in Japan.

I never owned and have hardly never played the Dreamcast, but I’ve many times thought of buying one.

should be the place to start. I’ve also seen that Play-Asia.com, Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk have both old games and accessories. So it shouldin’t be that hard to get a console and some games.

You can read much more about Dreamcast on Wikipedia, blogs.sega.com have written a post with a lot of links to sites that write about the 10th anniversary of the Dreamcast, and IGN.com have an in-depth article about the history of Dreamcast. You can watch their video of it below.

There is also a new game coming in October for Dreamcast. Rush Rush Rally Racing is a new 2D top-down racing gam. It’s region free and will play on PAL, NTSC-US and NTSC-J Dreamcast. The game can be pre-ordered from the makers site at redspotgames.com, and they will ship worldwide. You can watch the trailer of the game below.

I’ve also found another History of Dreamcast video on YouTube which is also worth a look.
