Dreamcast compilation on its way for Xbox 360 and PS3

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on December 16th, 2010

If you love Dreamcast and own either a PS3 or an Xbox 360, we have some good news. SEGA is releasing its Dreamcast compilation to both platforms very soon. The price is an affordable $29.99 for the compilation. So you can play all of these classic games without dragging the old console out of the closet.

The titles and a date have yet to be released, so we hope it has a good selection for the price. Even if they only include some of the hits, it will be well worth it.

Turn that trash down! But dad I’m just playing video games. On my boombox. Modder XCKDIY has created the awesomely retro Dreamcast Boombox casemod. The Dreamcast console has been jammed into a portable boombox, and he installed a front-facing LCD as well.

The Dreamcast’s drive has even been integrated into the player’s original drive tray, keeping it all authentic. The four controller ports are in the front, so you can easily hook up your controllers for some multiplayer gaming.

Millennium Falcon Dreamcast

She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts. Very true. Especially when you cram a Sega Dreamcast into a Millennium Falcon toy. User “Pezzapoo” of the Ben Heck forums sure made this one look good.

The DC game port facia fit into the toy with only about a millimeter to spare. That’s when he knew it was magic. In case you were wondering, two side docking ring fans keep the hot DC from melting. Anytime some modder puts a console in a Star Wars ship, somewhere far far away, an X-Wing gets it’s wings.

Handheld Dreamcast looks like a Stormtrooper

Handheld Dreamcast looks like a StormtrooperThis must be how Stormtroopers get their game on, since it matches their armor pretty nicely. It really is a nice piece of work. Created by Hailrazer on the Ben Heck Forums in about 90 hours. He used a kids toy called “Lazer Doodle” for the case.

It reminds us of what used to be. And it reminds us of the Dreamcast’s short life-span and the untimely demise of what some consider to be one of the greatest video game systems of all time. It features a Sony PSOne 5″ LCD screen, an InterAct Quantum Fighterpad controller, stereo speakers and a battery pack which lets him play for about 2.5 hours per charge. Nice!
