The PAL edition does include Net Functionality! At the bottom of the main menu is an Internet Features option. This will take you to a built in Dreamkey browser. The splashpage includes some promo art, the title "Sega Extreme Sports with 55DSL" and a broken image link to click on to log online and view the website. I'm guessing the image is on the disc but it's directory is mis-spelt or incorrectly defined.
Here's a video of the menu options and the browser (Sorry for phone, couldn't be arsed to set up my capture footage);
Hovering over the image link shows us the online directory the game tries to connect to, I have verified this link is http://www.dream-key.com/extremesports/index.htm
However putting this into Internet Archive shows that the entirety of http://www.dream-key.com is missing from the archive, and the link has been dead for years. I've chased up all the following links;
- http://www.dream-key.com/extremesports/index.htm > Reroutes to;
http://www.dream-key.com/extremesports/public_html/ > Reroutes to;
Anyone who can help me trace the remnants of this title's website I'd be most appreciative. Thank you dubcity for the find! I'd love to be able to get this title back online ^_^
::EDIT:: While trying to find other games that may include online functionality that have been missed, as Sega Extreme Sports has, I ran into this wiki page that states KISS Psycho Circus includes online modes. The only online mention on this forum I've found has been for the PC version. Does anyone know if KISS Psycho Circus on DC actually includes the online functions in any region?

It also mentions Soldier of Fortune has online modes. I've checked the US versions, I'm going to test PAL editions to verify there too.
KISS Psycho Circus is not VGA Compatible in PAL.
I can verify Soldier of Fortune definitely does not have online modes in PAL.
I edited the Wiki page to remove them being listed as online compatible.
