Now the DC was definately the underdog of it''s era, and it''s sad to have to admit it given it was (in reality) a bloody fine bit of kit. I can even recall, when these were put on sale in Electronics Boutique stores, a few days earlier helping to create some pre-order promo flyers using scanned in images from a Sega catalog, via a parallel scanner, and trying to carve an isolated image using Photoshop on a 286 PC with nowhere near enough memory and the many crashes that involved.

Mind you, i did end up owning one (along with a copy of every official, and some promotional copies of never-released titles), and damn near every accessory whilst it was still being retailed (including that rare Ethernet addon which i never actually got to use). I gifted the set to a collector a few years ago, but the second fishguts console (used for spares) eventually became a case for various different SBC''s (and i am talking way earlier stuff then the PI) and even the high-capacity optical drive got reused. A good end story to a much missed proof that Win CE was actually useful for more than PDA type application and data collection devices.

I''m surprised that there''s no mention that the core operating system in this console is Windows CE. This was kind of a big deal at the time, and was Microsoft''s way of getting a good look at what went into creating a console.

I gather quite a number where sold in Australia, though I can''t say I saw much of them.

I''ve seen 2ndhand controllers in 2nd hand stores.

while the Sega Dreamcast wasnt a bad console it was let down by the games that were released for it, most were boaring imo. the best games were Virtua Fighter 3 $ Crazy Taxi

Certain games like Sonic Adventure and Skies of Arcadia had mini games you could download into the VMU to play "offline." These were fairly basic due to the graphics limitations of the VMU (very low res monochrome).

The Sega Dreamcast's VMU cards not only stores thye progress on the games, but on the games, (I don't know for sure, getting all my information from the internet and not owning a Dreamcast yet myself), you can download games onto the VMU card. (This I am sure of)
