How many people still own and use a Dreamcast?

Post by Calavera » Mon Jul 25, 2011 4:40 am

I was just wondering this, back when I first registered I had a Dreamcast and played the heck out of it. I was really interested in the emulators, I thought it was amazing that an emulator could run on a console instead of the computer. But as time went one I got less and less interested, currently I don't even own a dreamcast, just a few leftover games on accessories. I just wonder does anybody still own a Dreamcast and if you do, do you still use it? If you still use it what do you use it for? Emulators, Games etc... For me the Wii is the new Dreamcast.

I have a Dreamcast and the broadband adapter (which was almost five times the price of the DC). I also got a mouse and keyboard for it (wanted the mouse/keyboard/bba for use with my port of Doom). I actually really love the DC these days.

I have a few commercial games I play on it (actual GDROMs, not pirate images... the games are so cheap these days it's silly to pirate them when you can have the actual game with a manual and everything), I play a few emulators, and of course my port of Doom. :grin:

I want to work on a port of AROS for it at some point... the DC actually even looks like it could be an Amiga. 8-)
