Windows CE-based Dreamcast to arrive in US this fall

Sega will make its next attempt to wrest control of the home video game market away from Sony and Nintendo this fall when it releases its eagerly awaited Windows CE-based Dreamcast machine in America. The Dreamcast, which went on sale last fall in Japan, will hit American shores on September 9th, selling for $199. The Dreamcast is expected to be a big success, with over 30,000 pre-orders from retailers. Sega is expecting over 200,000 pre-orders by the time it launches.

Sega says the Dreamcast features a 56 Kbps modem so that users can play Internet-based games, browse the Web and get email. One possibility, and this is rare with game consoles these days, is for Dreamcast to actually ship with a game, Sega Rally 2
