How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

SEGA are up to something.
In a recent briefing in Japan SEGA claimed to have integrated Dreamcast technology onto a PCI card. According to Vice President Hideki Sato such cards are already in the demo stage and if the results are satisfactory we could see their release as early as the beginning of 2001.

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

I don't care if you had a AMD 1.4 gigahertz dual processor, and a Voodo 5 w/ 128 meg of ram on the board and another 128 meg of ram for your system, without this (proposed)card, you couldn't emulate Dreamcast games on your PC, remember these game consoles are almost friggin pc as it is, but they can dedicate their system resource far better, than a pc, because a pc has to allocate memory for so much other shit, I hope this works. But I expect the sys requirements are going to be very top notch!

The reason to get this card would be to play dreamcast games on your pc. For example, if someone already owns a pc, and doesnt want to pay for the console, this will probably be a cheaper solution.Plus, since your pc is already online, you don't have to mess with that sega.net crap.

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

Wow sega's making it to easy. All we have to do is wait for one person to buy it and strip the program off the stupid board and make a perfect emulator. The only use for actually buying the card after that would be for slow cpus to play the games and with all these cheep computers rising in speed buying a new cpu and downloading the emulator would probably be cheaper than buying a dreamcast.

You DON'T need a special CD drive to read Dreamcast games... A regular CD-ROM with an emulator (probably built into the card) would run them just fine.I think it soulds like a good idea. DC has WAYYYY to few good games for me to buy one (I have a PSX2!), but if I could play them on my PC for a lower cost, I would do it.

Hello!!!!!!!!!! all of you arnt thinkin right.DC will have a advanced chip 4 probaly around 200$.then everybody will think it will be cool cuz you can cheat DC which you cant cuz they wont allow it.if you want to know why wmail me at dccool009@yahoo.com

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

this is just another marketing ploy by a company that has been losing money since there horrible 32x creation, back in the mid 90's, for those of you that remember that piece of crap. sega needs to do something cause they have been losing the video game wars to sony and nintendo for several years now and they are sweating twice as hard since ms annouced the x-box. if u have the money to burn, rather your parents do, then have fun. i don't think this gimick will work. the graphics being offered on dc are far superior then anything your cpu will do so why bother buying dc games for a cpu. you do better off just buying a dc, but sega will never get another dollar from me anyway. ps2 will rule and x-box will knock sega outta the market. besides, there are already rumors of sega joining forces wit nintendo. thats how much trouble sega is in of possibly not existing in 3 years. you can thank nintendo for that since they scrapped there idea of creating a cd platform for which sony then decided to continue the project which is how sony was created to begin with. this ploy is laughable, and it wont work without the threat of having thier games copied all to be damned and losing even more money which sega can ill afford

Saga have spent quite some time under the rule of Sony PlayStations and N64's. And now it is time for Sega to rise form the ashes and once again rule the world of console gaming Sega finally have Sony and Nintendo by the balls and all they have to do is squeeze! ALL HAIL SEGA!

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

All Sega does is try to compete with the latest consoles out...yet they fail each time...Now they claim they are going to have something against the other new generation consoles. OOOO, I'm sure Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft are shitting their pants right now. (LOL) Sega has lived for too long, and now is its time to fall once again from this NEW VERSION OF DREAMCAST AHAH THEY RELEASED IT A YEAR AGO....AND PLAN TO UPDATE IT ALREADY! SEGA ****ING SUCKED AND SUCKS NOW AND WILL CONTINUE TO SUCK. Frankly, I believe sega has made the worst consoles. Genesis-ok, Saturn-shit, dreamcast-shit, gamegear-ok <--not too many "GOOD" games-- ALL IN ALL Dreamcast may be able to beat XBOX(The new comer) but... they will sit this battle once again to let Nintendo and Sony duke it out! THATS IT NIGGERS DIE FOREVER YEAHHHHHH!!!! jiNNSToRM

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

all consoles suck?hmm, well i haven't use my PSX in a while now but i think you ppl need to think about some thing when you say "consoles suck" because if you have noticed console run very fast and a a good detail (look and DC's texture qualtiy and FPS!) to achieve that sort of FPS on a PC would mean $$$$! :)Enough said i thinks :)

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

I think DC is an awesome system as well is PS2 but the only reason they suck is because the programmers that make the games dont know what people want and cant make games worth a darn. If only they had people on the designing crew that knew a thing or to.

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

I'm getting boththen i get the best of both worlds but by comparing the saturn (which was a technically superior system) and the psx (which to begin with was the underdog) I'd say the PS2 will be the system I use most cuz people turn out better games for the sony systems

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

As long as consoles are hooked up to TVs they will not be as good as my PC. Granted consoles do not suck, they are simply limited in their ability to provide a high-quality interactive experience. Some games I bought for my PSX I would never even consider looking at for my PC. Some RPGs (FFVII, VIII, etc) are better for consoles, along with almost all sports games. I would never, however by an RTS, FPS or Sim for a console. The FPS is graphically better on the PC, the consoles dont have the interface for an RTS, and the sims tend to fall under the RTS or FPS category.***THIS IS NOT A CONSOLE BASH***but I don't care what anyone says, ALL 3D CARDS MADE IN THE PAST TWO YEARS FOR THE PC BEAT THE DC, AND THE PS2. The MAJOR reason for this is the 640x480 TV. Even DTV and HDTV are 640x480. Why cant they make a 1024x768 TV!?!?!?

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

In case you guys didn't know, The DC uses the PowerVR engine (remember that from around the first 3Dfx voodoos time). I forgot what the exact name/version of the chipset, but I know its made by NEC. Point is that it would be pretty easy to made a PCI card out of the DC. Similar to porting PC games to the upcoming X-Box. =)

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

I think it would be a cool idea to have the DC on a computer!! it won't be as bad.. the DC is good i think the amount of game sthat are on it are exellent.. the DC is a FIGHTERs need... with MvsC MvsC 2, SNK vs CAPCOM. SSF3 SSF3-2 and Dead or Alive the dc is and exellent console.. stuff the graphics.. as if the gamer vendors will use the x box od ps2 to the full its still sae old shitty graphics!!!! Thahts what i think anyway

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

Hey, if Sega wants to sell it's soul tothe devil then let them. But please beinformed that the devil has a 64meg AGPvideo card, and he wants to know how thatfits into the mix, at least before he spendshis hard earned money. I mean, I like gamingon a console a much as the next man who ownsa high end cpu with alot of bells andwhistles (NOT MUCH). However, this move willserve to open the realm of hand to handfighting games to the pc, an area which hasbeen missing for some time now. Many of uswould like to be able to play Tekken, orStreet Fighter, or some kind of boxing gameon the pc, especially in multiplayer format.But, still, and I am serious about this, Iwant good graphics!!

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

That's just great: a DC Compatible card, which will include DC software reading by a PC, which is impossible unless you patch your CD Drive with a special GD writer firmware, so if they enable GD reading by a CD Drive, that means everyone will be copying games, making Sega's business SHIT...So guys, don't start thinking you'll see DC Games on your PC, but rather have an acceleration card based on the DC's Architecture...

How do you fit a Dreamcast into a PC?

as the others have said sega better put up or shut up with the graphics end of the dc card, personally with my dvd and 800p3 i won't have a problem with it but what about the processor end of the equation and cd drive i know a dvd will spin the dc's special gig disk, but you can't make a cd drive spin any faster than it already is, most people have cd drive so how the hell are they gonna pull this off? i just don't see it becomeing a universally compadable interface.
