Former TBLWrestling.com Web Manager, friend of JerseySmarts.com, and owner of MartyMusings.com Martin Hawrysko sent over a link this weekend that got me smiling and laughing a little bit. The link was to the video that you’ll see linked below.
Ha ha ha! How great is that?! Not only do you have the team at ThinkGeek.com reviving one of the most underrated consoles of the last generation, but they’re doing it on the cheap. And as for games, an eBay search shows me over 900 listings (plus I’m sure any GameStop or EB Games has some discs laying around for sale).
And I love that Dreamcast is now competing again (at least in terms of price) with PlayStation 2. Frankly, this is a battle that it cannot win since virtually everyone owns a PlayStation 2 (some 45.2 million sold vs. 2.2 million for the Dreamcast). But it’s fun and I got a kick out of it.
I would absolutely buy a Dreamcast, but the truth is that I really enjoy the Wii and Nintendo DS so much that I don’t want/need another system. And even more than that, I don’t really have any time to play video games these days. If I pick up an hour or two of gaming each month between the Wii, the DS, or my computer then that’s a lot.
But for those of you who want an affordable – and fun – alternative to the current generation of video gaming systems, give Sega’s Dreamcast a try!
