    It was always a shame that Dreamcast didn't do better... it was a good system.

    I will also agree, and say the Dreamcast. It was a good system, but everyone was waiting for the PS2 to come out.

    Turbografx-16 was a cool system. The handheld they had that played the same games as the console was groundbreaking stuff.

    I think them not utilizing 3rd party developers killed the system.

    Most people will say the dreamcast. It's truly unfortunate that they had such terrible timing with it coming out...

    another reason it failed might be because the saturn wasnt that great and it pushed sega's fans away and so there was less ppl to enjoy the dreamcast

    Dreamcast, because it was the first next gen CD using system, but because of the crap that Sega did with Saturn and the CD add on, it lost almost all of it's market.

    logan the dreamcast of course had more of a chane of being a longer lasting console thats why it is more misunderstood why sega ended the dreamcast so early. And if sega didnt come around we still would have been playing crap atari instead of them. haha nintendo vrs atari i wonder how would win.
