Those controllers were designed so well.
so comfy.


ALSO, the game where you raise a fish with Leonard Nimoy doing narration, pretty sure it's called Sea man or something was both fun and mortifying. I miss you, year 2000!

They fucked up the saturn and should have straight up recalled it and waited a few months before dropping the dreamcast.

Didn't have much of a lifespan with the PS2 coming out so soon after it.

In my case: hardware failure. It took 2 RMAs to get a dreamcast that didn't destroy itself.

The model for consoles (and I have no idea if it's still true today) was to sell the console at a loss to reach more customers and assume people would purchase games and peripherals to bring you into the green.

In my case they couldn't pull a sale until I could actually play the console more than a few days. Maybe the library wasn't as strong as I remember it though.

It couldn't play DVDs.
