|Fast facts on the Dreamcast Jump Pack|
|Made for: Sega Dreamcast|
The Dreamcast Jump Pack (referred to as the Vibration Pack in Europe and the Puru Puru Pack (ぷるぷるパック) in Japan) is a insertable accessory for the Dreamcast controller's expansion ports. When placed in the controller, it allow compatible games to give force feedback to the controller, a concept pioneered by Nintendo with the Nintendo 64.
The Jump Pack is similar in appearance to a VMU, though has no screen, buttons or memory capabilities. The accessory is bulkier at the back, meaning the preferred position is to place it in the second second expansion slot (some third party alternatives are built in such a way where this is not necessary). Because the Jump Pack is removable, it can be placed in a number of other Dreamcast controllers - for example, in theory it could be placed inside the Dreamcast Light Gun giving the controller a more realistic feel when firing.
Dreamcast was the last console to have a removable vibration pack. All future consoles have had the technology built in to the controller.
