As I said before, if anyone is talking bollocks then it is you, you know as well as I do that in the KEY MARKETS that count, ie Japan and U.S the Master System didn't even make a dent because the NES dominated the scene totally...The NES was the king of the hill during that period...Dreamcast was too little too late, because of prior mis-management, hence why you rarely if ever hear anyone refer to the Dreamcast as the SEGA Dreamcast as their name was rock bottom with all that happened before...poor sales in Japan of the console didn't help matters either....it was only in the Genesis era that Sega made Nintendo sweat...The Master System was a hit in Europe and Brazil. Again, not one hit wonder. "the Dreamcast threw in the towel soon as it got wind of the PS2 coming to town". Sega were on the verge of bankruptcy regardless of whether the PS2 was around the corner. They were selling at a loss for years. Continuous years of bad management lead to Sega throwing in the towel with the Dreamcast. So yeah, stop typing bollocks chump.
