13 Technologies That Died on Arrival

2. Sega Dreamcast

Although it fared better than the Sega Saturn, the Sega Dreamcast, which was released in 1999, failed to do as well as the company had hoped. Primarily due to the newest wave of consoles, namely the PlayStation 2. Sega marketed the Dreamcast as more inexpensive and accessible than the expensive Saturn, but it still failed to thrive on the market. Although now considered to be somewhat ahead of its time, the Dreamcast was the very last console system that Sega produced, capping off their 18 years in the console market.
