Reading through Wikipedia WTF?

Post by Skynet » Mon Jan 29, 2007 4:51 am

Wikipedia wrote:Ecco the Dolphin - Ecco the Dolphin is the collective name given to a series of video games published by Sega which primarily take place underwater. They were originally developed for the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Dreamcast video game consoles, but have since been ported to numerous systems. The games are named after their main character, Ecco, a young bottlenose dolphin. They are known for being unique and highly challenging titles. Ecco was created by E. Ettore "Ed" Annunziata,[1] who also produced the Mega Drive game Chakan: The Forever Man.

The Ecco the Dolphin games hinge on the idea that cetaceans are sapient beings and have their own society under the waves. In the Mega Drive/Genesis games, humans are barely acknowledged and never by name. The cetaceans also call themselves "Singers". In the Dreamcast game, dolphins and presumably other cetaceans have united with humans in a cross-species society. Ecco the Dolphin is also currently available on the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console as a dreamcast game.
That's an error, correct?

@Butters: What was fixed?
@O_R: Coming from you, that's saying something. :lol:

So I'm guessing it wasn't and never will be released as a Dreamcast game for Virtual Console?

I fixed the error. They don't have any Dreamcast games on the virtual console. Just imagine how long the download would take. Not only that, but the games would take up most of the internal memory.

Years ago, Sky satellite television boxes in the UK were going to have Dreamcast hardware built in so you could play games on them, downloaded via the satellite signal. Unfortunately, the project was dropped :(.

i'm guessing he still has nightmares about it, and his psychologist suggested getting some closure on the topic. Hell even i still wonder about answers on topics from 14 years ago.
