I think the Dreamcast has a lot to offer, the opening range of games already
looks impressive and easily outstrips the meagre offerings Sony gave us when
it launched the Playstation. I also read that Sony were knocking off a
further 20 pounds of the cost of a new Playstation down to around 70 pounds
to help stave off the threat of the Dreamcast in the run up to Chrimbo. It
does make you think though of the huge amounts of profit they must have been
making initially when Sony were knocking Playstations out for 300 pounds a

Lee wrote that working on the interface on Dreamcast will make it hard to

push aside Playstation and the eventual Playstation 2 off the pole position.
Rumour has it that Playstation 2 will accommodate Playstation 1 games, as
well as access the Net. With Sony's distribution strengths, does Dreamcast have
a chance. keep in mind that Nintendo is also releasing its new box, and is
apparently moving away from cartridges to CD format. It makes sense for Sega's
market penetration to create joint ventures with Internet partners...anything to
make Dreamcast a success...especially with Sony and Nintendo pulling up
their sleeves.

By the way...whatever happened to 3DO? Is it completely dead and buried? I
would love to read your comments...especially on partnerships.
