The Dreamcast is SEGA's swan song system that released on September 9th, 1999. Over 10 years aged the Dreamcast, as its name entails, symbolized SEGA's dream to obtain back the console crown. Unluckily, for SEGA and its admirers, the Dreamcast was completely overshadowed due to the hype of the PS2 and saw middling sales. Just over two years after the release of the white console SEGA pulled the plug on developed the hardware and turns into a 3rd party publisher to expand software for Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo consoles. The Dreamcast was the foremost console to arrive with online functionality out of the box marking a 56K modem.
