I found a guy selling one locally, listed as "Dreamcast, still in the box, barely played it" that was it, no pictures and it was cheap. Here's what I ended up with, all in MINT condition, looks like it was never played. Dreamcast in the box, 6 games and an extra new controller still in the box. He said he played it a handful of times when it 1st came out, but then he boxed it up when he moved and just forgot about it.

Now I'm on a mad hunt for games, I need suggestions!


I'm jealous, I'm still in the market for a mint boxed PAL Dreamcast, not that easy to find sadly :(

But looks like you got a great deal :)

I feel like it was a great deal, considering that the local "retro" game store nearby is selling a USED one in the box for a ridiculous $200 :shock:

Ouch! $200 for a regular Dreamcast is absurd. If it's one of those Limited Edition DC's it could be a reasonable price.

@ RavenholmDX / astroZombie: Both great finds. Love the mint CIB Dreamcast you've found.

Just brought a black BBA off from ebay. Hopefully later this summer, I will purchase a Sega Sports Dreamcast to complement it.

Wow, black BBAs would be pretty rare wouldnt they?

Are you going to use it for Q3A?

Yeah they pretty rare and came out only in Japan. I need to buy Quake 3 Arena soon, but I have both Phantasy Star Online and was planning on using it for home-brewing. I will ask for help with setting up the connection once I receive the BBA next week. I want to thank this forum for convincing me to use ebay.
