SEGA’s Dreamcast was released on November 27, 1998 in Japan, September 9, 1999 in North America, and October 14, 1999 in Europe. Unfortunately, it was also SEGA’s final home console, marking the end of the company’s 18 years in the market. Today, gamers are breathing new life into the Dreamcast by creating custom portable consoles, like the 2DC by GmanModz. This creation uses a real Dreamcast motherboard, and doesn’t rely on emulation like many others. Read more for a hands-on video and additional information.
