  • Sega Dreamcast + iMac = iCast

    In what may qualify as nostalgia overload, an enterprising Canadian has replaced the insides of an old all-in-one iMac with a Sega Dreamcast console. The end result is the iCast. Read More

  • Dreamcast molded into a handheld form, dubbed DreamTrooper

    What gamer doesn’t have fond memories of the Sega Dreamcast? Apparently this guy wanted to relive those Jet Set Radio days while on the go – or in his cubical. This mod started as a Lazer Doodle toy and then after a bunch of cutting, epoxing, sanding, and dreaming, the whole thing plays 10-year old games. The whole thing is gigantic when compared to a modern handheld gaming… Read More

  • Limited Resident Evil: Code Veronica Dreamcast spotted on eBay: Only $800

    This here is a limited edition Sega Dreamcast, one of them Resident Evil: Code Veronica editions. Supposedly only 1,800 of these were made, which seems reasonable: not even Wikipedia mentions its existence. If you’re willing to part with $800, it could well be yours. And if I even had an extra $800 handy, I would seriously consider it. Dreamcast was too beautiful for this world. via… Read More

  • Peter Moore: Day Two

    I’m getting all wrapped up in this interview with Peter Moore over at The Guardian. In today’s second part, he recounts his transition from the demise of the Dreamcast to his eventual move over to Microsoft. Seems he held some resentment against Sony PR for getting in the way of his Dreamcast plans. Read More

  • Dreamcast: It (was) thinking

    The Guardian has a pretty cool interview up with Peter Moore, president of EA Sports. Back in the day, he was head of Sega of America. In fact, he was the guy who killed the Dreamcast. As awesome as the Dreamcast was, maybe it’s a good thing it died; it served its purpose. It helped usher in the next-gen era of console gaming by supporting broadband capabilities. It could even be argued… Read More

  • Gaming on the go with the portable Dreamcast

    Sure, it’s not the most portable of portables, but if you long for the simpler days of Dreamcast, why not build a version you can take almost anywhere? Also, a note to the guy who sold me the broken Dreamcast at the Detroit Lakes, MN flea market last summer; I want my $20 back. I’m coming after you like a tornado made of arms, teeth, and fingernails. via Nowhere Else 2.0 Read More

  • Dreamcast controller as a precursor to the Wii?

      This guy is thinking of suing Nintendo, alleging that he came up with an idea that the gaming giant copied with its so-popular-we-can-all-afford-long-pants Wii system. This video was apparently made about eight years ago. If it’s real, this guy might have a shot at some cash. Contrary to popular belief around the blogosphere, it’s my opinion that he’s wearing shorts… Read More

  • Rumor: Dreamcast 2? Why, when Dreamcast is still the best?

    Sega filed for some patents back in August that are looking suspicious. Flash memory cards? I don’t remember Dreamcast brand flash cards – though they did have the amazing VMU, the world’s first (and last, probably) combination Game Boy and memory card. To be honest, there really isn’t much of a chance this is happening – it’s down to the big three now, and… Read More

  • Dreamcast Watch

    I have thus far let my perverse love of timepieces go unquenched on these pages, but no longer. Here is a fancy Dreamcast Watch that opens up just like the original Dreamcast to reveal the time. Practical? No. Geek-tastic? Yes. It’s available now for pre-order for $129 and will ship September 29. If it was every your goal to have a portable Dreamcast, this is probably about the… Read More
