This Day in History: Sega Dreamcast Launches in North America

Today marks not only the fifteenth anniversary of the launch of Sony’s PlayStation but the eleventh anniversary of Sega’s Dreamcast.

Launched on September 9th, 1999 (the memorability of 9/9/99 capitalized on via a $ 100 million print and television advertising campaign) at $ 199, Sega — erroneously — claimed that the Dreamcast was the first time a system had launched at sub-$ 200 price-point (the Nintendo 64, released in 1996, had launched at $ 199 to compete with a PlayStation price cut). Bernie Stolar, then-president and CEO of Sega of America claimed, “The fact that Sega Dreamcast will launch for less than $ 200 is a monumental industry ‘first,’ ? There’s never been a next generation console to debut at such a competitive price. At $ 199 with our system’s hardware and game library we feel confident that we will take back market share from Sony and Nintendo.”
