Dreamcast gets price chop
OK, so it's not directly related to DVD but I thought that some people may be interested anyway...
Sega have just announced that they are to reduce the price of their ailing Dreamcast games console bringing it down to a sub-£100 price point. While some will see this as a last gasp move to shift their remaining stock it's still an excellent opportunity for people looking to move into next-generation gaming. The Dreamcast was the best-selling console over last Christmas and currently has by far and away some of the best games ever released including Crazy Taxi, Shenmue, Virtua Tennis, Metropolis Street Racer and Soul Calibur.
The new £99.99 price point should come into effect immediately and regardless of the fact that Sega are moving out of the hardware production game it is still a very tempting prospect especially considering the recent announcement that a new set-top box from Pace will include the ability to play Dreamcast software. This arrangement will hopefully spread to other set-top box manufacturers and maybe even some future DVD players (fingers crossed) will feature Dreamcast compatibility.
In addition to the hardware price cut, Sega are also set to introduce a budget range of software which will include some classic Dreamcast titles.
