Dreamcast is arguably the top console for hardcore gamers. It has many great and quirky games. I still play my dreamcast so if the xbox turned out to go under like the dreamcast (it wont...your not that keen if you even think it had a slight chance) it would be a complement to say it went out like the dreamcast.

if your trying to troll use the Saturn as an example.

Some people have a false pretense that this console is going to fail, so they keep bringing that up. The reality is that this console is going to do great once it gets to $399 or less. I predict the $399 price around Christmas of 2014. Trust me on that one.

The reason why people think that the console is going to fail is because the PS4 has more preorders, and the Xbox One has a bigger price. They're not looking at the big picture. The situation right now is the small picture, and making any assumptions based on that is not smart.

The dreamcast had to go up against the PS2, which had some serious hype after the massive success of the original Playstation, had some serious piracy issues, Sega was pretty low on cash after the failures of the Genesis addons and the Saturn and 3rd parties were rather pissed off with how Sega handled the Saturn.

MS, on the other hand, has tons of money to throw at publishers and has good existing relationships with them, is very similar in power to the PS4, is releasing at virtually the same time as its competition and the majority of games these days are third party. The only major missteps are the price, their arrogance about the whole DRM issue pissing off all their fans and (potentially) the bundled Kinect.

Xbox One has a serious uphill battle if it wants to even sniff Dreamcast's legacy. That console had a ridiculously awesome game library considering how short of a life it had. X1 has its work cut out for itself...

What if the PS4 goes to $299-349 then?

MS has mysteriously set themselves up on the losing side of a price war, like their first entry in the console business.

I highly doubt that the One failing would put Microsoft under.

Dreamcast was different as sega had/has some of THE BEST first party IP's in history, created by them, & Objectively better than microsofts bought out few & the dreamcast had zero unpopular policies tied to its existence.

All who owned the DC loved it, sadly not enough owned it.
