Which is the best?
By comparing them using all the
aforementioned factors, we must say-
Why though? In terms of technological
performance, the Dreamcast wins hands down. This in itself is a very great
contributing factor to the Dreamcast's edge. Many people would buy the Dreamcast
because they know that the system is good, and games for it will be far superior to any
others graphically. Dreamcast also has good third party support, and great games
like Shen Mue and Blue Stinger will be released for it. These games boast amazing
graphics, innovative gameplay and sophisticated worlds made possible by the Dreamcast's
processing power. The Dreamcast may be expensive now, but expect that to change once
the official US launch draws near. Prices will be made more affordable, and units
will be sold rather quickly.
In terms of marketing, Sega will have to
be more aggressive. Their failure with the Saturn, Sega CD and 32X will deter many
former Sega fans from buying the Dreamcast. Why should they? So far, Sega has
done nothing to earn their trust, but must do so in order to guarantee success.
However, the Dreamcast may have some contest come Winter 99...
