In the world of gaming consoles, the Sega Dreamcast is known as the one that got away. The first system to offer 128-bit graphics and modem connectivity, the 1999 Dreamcast marked SEGA’s last foray into the console business. After more consumers bought Sony’s PlayStation 2, Sega waved the white flag around the turn of the century.
However, I can just imagine where the game industry would be today if Sega had made enough money to continue building hardware. Perhaps we’d be on the Dreamcast 3 or 4 by now, with features that really challenged both Microsoft and Sony for dominance.
