The PS2 was the first DVD player for a lot of folks and that's something the DC didn't have. 

Tekken Tag Tournament better than arcade perfect, with four players via a multitap at launch was something else PS2 had over dreamcast.


PS2=Namco=Namco System 246

DC=Sega/Capcom=Sega NAOMI

Dreamcast was def awesome with two agetech arcade sticks and a bunch of capcom arcade games. Not to mention self booting backups. Normal people had sonic adventure and virtua tennis and those shitty dreamcast pads.


I think the fact that it was an easily hackable windows machine with a killer library is why it was a hit with gamers, and also doomed to not sell software. At any rate, if you were a fighting game player at the time, you would need both of these systems.

I think the opposite might be true. What if Sega waited until late 2000 to release a more powerful Dreamcast? Would it have had a better chance? Maybe.

that actually kinda happen...  the Xbox was almost a sore successor to the dreamcast even had the same lunch team.. if i remember right... might have to do some digging... also Sega was a big supporter of the OG xbox..
