Money to burn...

If like me, you have the urge to tell absolutley everyone you meet about how freakin' amazing the Dreamcast is, but somehow manage to refrain from doing so in order to prevent yourself being labelled a "fucking loser," rest assured that there is now a more subtle way to show your support for The Greatest Console Ever Released (tm).

Before you wander into your local tatoo parlour with a page ripped from a magazine and demand the artist copy a 1:1 scale schematic of the Dreamcast onto your face, have a little look at this beauty:


It's a wristwatch that is modelled in the shape of a Dreamcast! When closed, it resembles a little chrome coloured console, but pop the GD-lid and inside you'll find a fully functioning analogue clock face, complete with Dreamcast logos!

You can sort of get an impression of the dimensions of the thing from the photos, and I think it's quite a cool bit of kit - but why launch it now, so long after the console's mainstream demise? Even more puzzling...why make the thing in the first place?! You don't see people walking around wearing chrome PS2s or Xboxes on their wrists...

According to Playasia.com, it costs about $130 (which is about £70 in real money). If you want one, you clearly have more money than sense, but go there now to avoid inevitable disappointment. It looks like it's only availible from 29th September, but i presume there's some kind of pre-order list.

People dont go around wearing PS2/Xbox watches because the PS2 one would be a bland design and the Xbox one wouldn't fit on your arm. The Dreamcast is still the fairest console of them all, looks wise.

To be fair though, you'd have to be one sad fucker to wear any kind of console based wristwatch...

You could say the same about just about anything, though. And hell, at least Dreamcast is one fandom that doesn't feature dodgy fan fiction.
