SEGA Dreamcast was launched back in 9 Sep 1999 (US release date), it was the last Sega non-mini console before finally deciding to stop making hardware and focus only on software (games). Sega Dreamcast shelf life-span was only less than 2 years (if you count from US release date until the date it’s getting discontinued world-wide). It was discontinued world-wide on 31 March 2001. Though it has such a short shelf life-span, but there are tons of great games – in this case great multiplayer games – you can play on the system and thanks to its 4 controller ports, there are many multiplayer games that were designed and created to maximize the feature – available to play in 4 players locally.
