well unfortunately sega never had a good enough cd system to be backwards compatible with. Sony did. Having to wait at least a year, and more than a year for nintendos new system is a long wait. If most people buy a dreamcast, which is the number one selling console of all time now, they probably arent going to buy another system or 2. I know I wouldnt do that, waste money on more than one system. I have a psx now and a n64, I dont really play either that much anymore, cause I am a computer man. I use the psx for the great rpgs that are out. I dont use the n64 for anything because of the lack of good games to play, or any games for that matter! Dreamcast is definately in my future this year.
