250°
164w ago - Sega's Associate Digital Brand Manager Ben Harborne has shared two videos today as part of double Dreamcast PSN Tuesday, which showcase both Sega Bass Fishing and Space Channel 5 Part 2 below.

To quote: Space Channel 5 Part 2 will be boogieing into the PlayStation Store later on today along with SEGA Bass Fishing - can you say Double Dreamcast Tuesday? Pick up either one for a smooth $10 each. Man, that's refreshing.

SEGA Bass Fishing has been an arcade favorite for years, gobbling up quarters since 1998 here in the US. Bass Fishing then caused quite a splash when it launched with the [Register or Login to view links] on 9/9/99 - a day very dear to all of us Dreamcast fans.





In terms of gameplay, Bass Fishing is surprisingly easy to pick up and get into, and it keeps you coming back for more with layers of depth added by the different fishing conditions and locations. Cast out in 8 different locations and lure in the biggest, baddest bass. Want to look like a pro? Use your Move controller!

If you're fishing in the morning try a surface lure. If you're fishing in the middle of the day, use a heavier lure to drop down to the cooler waters and pick up the prize bass you've been...
 

Sega Leak Reveals PSN to Bring PS2 & DreamCast Games to PS3

700°
270w ago - According to Edge Online (linked above), Sega has leaked a confidential [Register or Login to view links] (removed now) of a meeting with SCEA held in August by accidently uploading it to their public FTP site.

Among other things, the document states a March 2010 release for Sony's new Motion Controller in Japan with the ambition of selling 4-5 million units world-wide. No Prices or Bundles are mentioned though, yet.

Furthermore, and for many of you maybe even more interesting, the document states that Sony wants to introduce a PS2 emulator for the PS3, allowing them to sell DreamCast games and "all PS2 titles on PSN".

Unfortunately it doesn't mention any further details or the possibility to play PS2 game discs.

To quote: We've contacted Sony and Sega for comment and have reprinted the document in question in its entirety below:

Last-Gen: The Top 10 SEGA Dreamcast Games Unveiled

250°
293w ago - The SEGA Dreamcast, a system that many would say was way ahead of its time and a system many would argue was taken from us far too young.

Before it was cool to participate in online gaming on a console, Dreamcast had it. Before it was cool to speak to your games, Dreamcast had a microphone.

Because of a grand list of shenanigans on everyone's part, the Dreamcast crumbled due to the unstoppable juggernaut that was the PS2. Love it or hate it, Sega' s last hurrah was an innovative system with its share of great games.

The following is a top ten list to crown the 10 best Dreamcast games of all time:

10. Marvel vs. Capcom 2
9. Skies of Arcadia
8. Power Stone
7. Jet Grind Radio
6. Sonic Adventure
5. Shenmue
4. Sonic Adventure 2
3. Soul Caliber
2. Crazy Taxi
1. Resident Evil: Code Veronica

SEGA Dreamcast: Ahead of its Time

100°
343w ago - In March 2001 the dream was over. A little more than eighteen months after its European launch, Sega discontinued its final console and retreated from the gaming hardware wars for good. Despite a strong launch and a line-up of great and innovative games, the Dreamcast couldn't stand up to the onslaught of Sony's all-powerful PlayStation 2. A project that had started out with high hopes and a real vision for the future of gaming now felt like another console failure.

Look at the numbers, and that verdict still stands. Dreamcast never achieved the sales or won the third-party software support that could have kept the dream alive and Sega in the console business. Pull away from the raw figures, however, and you can see that Dreamcast helped shape the console hardware and services we know today. Maybe with the benefit of hindsight we can see that Dreamcast wasn't a disaster. In fact, you could say it was ahead of its time.

Why? Let's start with the physical design of the hardware. Sony's original PlayStation had made efforts to make the games console look like it belonged in the living room, not the kids' bedroom. The 3DO consoles from Panasonic and Goldstar looked like regular AV appliances. The Dreamcast, however, bought us the console as a design statement: small, unobtrusive, white, curvaceous, friendly....
