Sega's last home console they ever made was the Dreamcast. Like the Nintendo 64 and GameCube, the Dreamcast can fit up to four controllers. A typical controller contains the Control Stick on the left, a Control Pad on the bottom left, a Start Button on the bottom middle, and on the right, a green Y button, a yellow X button, a blue B button, and a red A button.

The Dreamcast was released on November 27, 1998 in Japan, September 9, 1999 in North America, and October 14, 1999 in Europe. The console was priced at $199.99.

Like the Saturn, the Dreamcast also only sold more than 9 million units worldwide, though a little less than the Saturn by about 100,000 units. After the Dreamcast was discontinued in 2001 with games continuing sales through 2002, Sega withdrew from the console business and transitioned to a third-party publisher, the same rank as HAL Laboratory for its Kirby games.


Only three Sonic games were released for the Dreamcast -- Sonic Adventure (1998/1999), Sonic Shuffle (2000) and Sonic Adventure 2 (2001).

Nintendo vs. Sega

Although it looks more similar to the GameCube, the Dreamcast was more of the Nintendo 64's other competitor.
