By Hyde Park or so. Got a friend who's itching to get some controllers and would like to get 'um local rather than online if possible. Thanks.

google is where smart people ask dumb questions. Or ya might wanna try the yellow pages, or that new thing where ya type in what you're searching for and it comes up with local listings. don't recall what that's called :?

well when I was in Chicago I had to travel all the way to Naperville's Game Crazy for some descent dreamcast merchendise and they had quite a collection.

The Game Crazy of Burridge where I lived had a soso dramcast line up but you could get the shit.

So far I think all Game Crazy (atleast the ones I have travelled to in States) carry Dreamcast merchendise.

Can't remember much about my time in Chicago other than I use to go to the Music Recyclery for everything. But of course that was back in 2001 when the Dreamcast was still around. Still, they had all kinds of stuff. I picked up my Game Gear there, as well as some Sega CD games, so I have no doubt that Dreamcast stuff would probably be available, depending if there is onen near you.

He ended up finding one controller at Game Crazy, then decided not to go out of his way to find another because he and his roommates are all splitting up so he's not sure about needing a 4th controller and whatnot =P.
