The home-made Dreamcast Arcade machine

Shaggy May 8, 2009 1



Of consoles in recent memory, the Sega Dreamcast perhaps has the most arcade-to-console ports of any console in the past decade. In part this comes from the fact that Sega used Dreamcast based hardware for many arcade games released towards the end of the 90’s and the beginning of this decade (known as the NAOMI) and so it was pretty easy for any company to modify the game code for the arcade version of a game to run on the DC. IIRC, Sega also released an arcade stick for the DC at one point but there is no better way to milk the arcade experience out of a Dreamcast than to build an arcade cabinet for it (or get a NAOMI cabinet, but that might be cheating). Someone named Tjerk Otten did just that and you can check out the photos of his homemade cabinet by clicking on the link below. I find it to be a pretty sleek design, all I would add personally is some artwork to the cabinet but it still is a cool piece of work.
