Any one recall if the Dreamcast was getting this much doom and gloom.....

No. It had way more potential than the Wii U.

Yeah I recall getting it at the time because it was way more advanced than N64 and Playstation

I remember Sony fanboys badmouthing it ad nauseum as they waited for their precious PS2, yes.

Nothing like this. It just kind of... died.The PS2 announcement helped to know the wind from its sails and it never recovered.

It wasn't far from this. There was the same tone to the discussions - supporters saying that the sales were fine and big games would push them higher and EA weren't important anyway, with some calling anyone who disagreed a troll, and others saying that the sales weren't so good and developer support was underwhelming and the imminent release of other consoles was overshadowing the machine, with some calling anyone who disagreed a fanboy.

There is, of course, the key difference that Sega had had a dreadful decade and were losing more money than they could afford, and Nintendo aren't in anything like that position.

Reading this back with the benefit of hindsight is somewhat amusing: http://boards.fool.co.uk/sales-of-dreamcast-5804562.aspx?sort=username

Not much, the press actually liked it quite well.

Nintendo and Sony fanboys were destroying it, though.
