30. Sega decided that they needed a platform for Crazy Taxi other than the arcades

so they dumped this gem on the market. (IMHO)




We bought one JUST to play Crazy Taxi Christmas 2001 and played for nearly a year before we realized he console was dead ended.

The Dreamcast was the first entry in the sixth generation of video game consoles and was released in late 1998, before its contemporaries Sony's PlayStation 2, Microsoft's Xbox and the Nintendo GameCube.

Sega discontinued the Dreamcast in North America in March 2001 and withdrew entirely from the console hardware business, making it the company's final console and foray in the business. However, support of the system continued in Europe and Oceania until the end of 2002, as well as in Japan, where consoles were still sold until 2006 and new licensed games continued to be released. According to Bernie Stolar, former President and CEO of Sega of America, the Dreamcast was discontinued because the new chairman of Sega wanted the company to focus on software.<4>

Despite its short lifespan, the Dreamcast had received cult status for its history and features. It was widely hailed as ahead of its time, and is still held in high regard for pioneering online console gamingit was the first console to include a built-in modem and Internet support for online play.<5><6> As of 2010, the console is still supported through various MIL-CD independent releases.
