Sega's best days are long gone sadly.Sega can make a comeback dreamcast 2 please! if they were to be funded or team up with samsumg it would be the way to do it_they need good smart management. if they came back tomorrow with new games and sequels to even old 2d games, they would make millions. always was a sega fan.
I want the Yakiza games but f***ing sega does not want to bring them over god damn it or when they do they cut s*** out. s*** all they need to do is change stuff to English text and make them DD games if the following is that small in North America.Sega got that online ball rolling for consoles and PSO was great fun. The fact they haven't re released Chu Chu rocket just shows how they have no clue. Too busy making countless Yakuza games that still play like they did on the PS2.
What killed it was the ease of piracy. Not far after release people were creating SELF BOOTING ISO's that you could easily burn and play games where you did not need a modchip or swap disc, etc.DC actually sold pretty well in it's short time. What killed it was lack of content from key third party devs. EA, Konami, SE, Namco all made either zero games or hardly any games.
DC's remaining games were generally very good. The 2k sports were great, Sega's arcadey games were solid, fighting games were all nice. Actually more games ran at 60 fps than PS2's first batch of games which were pretty lousy in year one. Yet PS2 still succeeded despite being about $150 more. When PS2 launched it was $300 and DC was already down to $150. DC even had a built in modem.
Goes to show that like any console generation, content is typically king. Although, Wii is a key outlier due to it's unique gameplay approach.
I didn't bother with DC. I wanted EA Sports and Ace Combat. None of them came out on DC.
