X-Box Live Arcade woefully behind the Dreamcast in terms of awesomeness

Well it appears that the X-box is trying to play catch up with the Dreamcast.

They now offer a version of Marthon:Durandal on X-box Live Arcade.

Quote form the X-box wesbite.

"This title is only available to Xbox 360™ owners with an Xbox LIVE Silver or Gold membership, through download from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace."

Technically that is true. To get the faster upgraded version with a few add-ons you have to have the X-box 360.

But if you want play THE WHOLE TRILOGY (including the original version of Durandal!) all you need is a Dreamcast, a CD-R and a decent internet connection!

Download it at the DC Evolution website.

That's right. First the Wii and now the Xbox 360. The new gen just keeps on ripping off the Dreamcast...

Yes the DC Evolution website has had THE WHOLE TRILOGY up for awhile. Of course there are some drawbacks (the most painful being that you can't save).

But still. Three original games versus one remake.

Simple math people


Dreamcast > Xbox live Arcade

The Undead Console leaves another victim in it's wake...

Live the Dream people...

All hail the Undead Console!

All hail the Dreamcast!

I never appreciated the X-box very much..
The only thing I would like to play would be JSRF. Even tough its a sequel from DC.
DC rulez and the other consoles are a shame. I got a PS2 and a PSP, and I still think the Dreamcast is the best! Money spent on collection items related to the Dreamcast is a better option than buying anything that is released nowadays...

Nice post Caleb - it seems the DC is indeed still infuencing today's generation of gaming. Tsk. Anyhow, what's this I hear about FK having a post removed / sensored by blogger?

The X-Box has definatly taken a lot of what the Dreamcast started and run with it, including online gaming which Sega may of kicked off but Microsoft have close to perfected now. Downloadable content was something else the Dreamcast had first, and now everyone's doing it in some form or another, only now in most cases you have to pay for it!
