Sega Dreamcast

From Sega Retro


The Dreamcast (ドリームキャスト) is a home video game console manufactured by Sega as a successor to the Sega Saturn. Dubbed as Sega's "Super Console"[1], it is a "128-bit" machine designed with then-cutting edge hardware and a focus on the internet. The Dreamcast was originally released in Japan in November 1998 before seeing a Western release the following year.

The Dreamcast was Sega's seventh and final home video game console, and was discontinued in early 2001[2][3] due to financial constraints within the company. It had sold at least 8.2 million hardware units and 51.63 million software units by March 2001,[4], with estimates suggesting 10.6 million hardware units in total.
