Dreamcast was born 10 years ago today.

The Sega console released in Japan on November 27, 1998, and didn’t reach the West for another year, launch in the US on September 9, 1999 and Europe on October 14 the same year.

The Japanese machine launched with Godzilla Generations, Virtua Fighter 3tb, PenPen TRiIceLon and July.

Dreamcast’s life was brief: cessation of production was announced of January 31, 2001, thanks mainly to competition from PS2.

Water under the bridge. Happy birthday, little man.
