Yellowest Dreamcast of All Time?

Post#1 » Mon Oct 18, 2021 10:42 am

Just spotted this on eBay. I never thought I'd say this about a badly sun-yellowed Dreamcast but it actually looks pretty sweet. :lol: I almost thought it might be a limited edition Dreamcast before I examined it closer. I've seen some yellowed Dreamcasts in my time but this one takes it to a whole new level.

like I said on twitter. can't make up my mind if it's sun or smoke damage but now looking at it again on a monitor there's a very subtle fade on it.

I think it is funny that the modem did not yellow out like the rest of the Dreamcast.

The seller described it as a "sunburn"! :lol: :lol: :lol:

The "Open" button on the right also looks fine, while the "Power" button on the left is all yellow. Weird.

It's probably due to the position the sun shone on the Dreamcast, the left side probably saw more sunlight than the right, explaining the open button and modem not being as yellow compared to the rest

I never had a console yellowing, but it seems it is pretty common, any conditions under were it gets yellow?
