Post by TreyDay » Sun Jun 30, 2002 2:12 pm

Does anyone know what was in the last Dreamcast that Sega was suppose to put something "more valueable than gold" in the box?

Do you actually know or are you asking? If you're asking, I have no clue :lol:

it was a DC signed by all the developers, and every 1st party sega game made. Some gaming magazine got a hold of it and held a contest.

Doughboy would be correct. Gamepro held it about...oh...I'm guessing in March. Yeah, it was the end of March. You had until April 31 to sign up. I entered the contest, but so far no one has knocked on my door, so I guess I didn't win... :(

I entered it as well. What kills me is that some person who probably isn't really into Dreamcast (like all of us) won it and keeps it stored in his closet or gave it to his 2 year old cousin to play with it or somethinig. Which is probably true knowing Gamepro's target audience.

Yeah. I hate people who don't know what they actually own and give it to a cousin or brother to blow up.
It's thinking...

It should have been given, along with all its extras, to the Smithsonian, as a tribute to Sega's final console.
