Thats right today I got my hands on a very special item called Hanzo. I refer to it as The Hanzo cause it demands that sort of respect. What this item does is allow you to play Dreamcast with a VGA cable which enhances the picture quality in 480p. The device also allows you to play games in 480i for those games that don't support the VGA cable. Yes that's right the only downfall to this item like all other VGA cables for the Dreamcast is there is only a select few games that don't support it. No need to worry though cause the list of games that do support it look amazing on any LCD, LED, or Plasma screen.
This device also has a few other amazing features which include a scanline inducer which means those old fighter games that looked better on a CRT with scanlines can now look amazing on any of the new TV's that don't have scanlines. The other features include thick or thin scanlines and a light or dark feature. I would say thin scanlines is the best way to go and some games prefer the dark setting and look more realistic.
