After the commercial failure of the Sega Saturn, Sega went at it again, this time with the moderately more successful Dreamcast. The Dreamcast launched to North America in September 1999 and had very strong sales until Sony launched the PS2 which quickly slowed the Dreamcast's momentum. The Dreamcast disappeared as fast as it appeared and was discontinued in 2001. Despite its short lifespan it offered gamers quite a few fantasic games and is a very affordable console to collect for to this day.
