I don't know about the other sites but jet grind radio's site has been down for months. All you could is trade tags, or so I was told. I never went there when it was up. I didn't have internet access at the time.

Sega are just transforming into a software-based company...

They just think that there's no demand for those parts of the site anymore.

Time to move on, methinks...

According to Sega, their old Dreamcast games have been discontinued although finding most of the older titles is not too hard (sega sports in particular) but finding something like a new virtua fighter 3tb is next to impossible. I remember back in late 2000 you could find new vf3, star wars episode 1 racer, and st fighter 3 double impact for $10 new, but times change. With the release of the last commercial dreamcast game, they have no use for supporting it whether online or by phone. EB just reduced the size of their DC display, and Circuit City's display is shrinking. The only place that looks stable is Best Buy, but I am sure that will change as soon as more X box and Game cube games push out the Dreamcast merchandise like the N64 was kicked out. If Sega won't support the Dreamcast, the fans will have to do it.

Dream Key is the PAL web browser.

I can find a PAL VF3 pretty easily.

Personally I think it's pretty unreasonable Sega have knocked down the part of the Daytona USA site where you get the key file, which is necessary for online play.

Deleted it? Didnt anyone explain to this person that you cant delete it. Its on a GD-ROM. And before you say you had it on your computer, it comes with the DC, you can order it free and it comes with a few games aswell.

Perhaps you ment he deleted the Internal Flash Settings of your DC which you can just create again very easily. Get FISA.
