Mail from Sega

Post by Soilwork » Thu Dec 05, 2002 10:36 am

Hey,
Here is a part of a mail I got from Sega, I'm sorry if someone has already posted this.
Dear sega-europe.com member


This eMail is our notice to you that the Dreamcast
services - namely Chat, Message Boards and eMail -
will be retired from 28th February 2003. The
Dreamcast's online games are not affected by this
decision and games such as Phantasy Star Online
and Quake III: Arena will still be available for
you to enjoy.
(...)
I guess all the PSO players (including me) will be happy :mrgreen:

Some one should set up a ship and block that all DCEmu games will take place in and also have them all start off with DCEmu: in the title and also have them be locked with a password that only people on these forums will know.

I also had contacted with Sega about this. They are going to shut the servers down. Maybe they will release the server-setup software publicly though.... But right now they still don't know what they're going to do.

Yeah, that sounds good, lets just make it nesterdc since I can't remember if PSO likes spaces.

Grrr, Sega is pissing me off, They are making a lot of money of releases to the newer consoles, and they cant support the Dreamcast and the loyal fans. When are they gonna shut down the servers :?: :wiggle:
