I got mine there. I actuall managed to get like a Dreamcast, 3 extra controllers, memory card, and Shenmue for around 30 bucks. Not bad considering it can be tough to find good games themselves for that price.

The system and accessories seem to jump around from time to time, I just decided to go ahead and pay the $20 rather than risk having to use Ebay. You never know what you're getting in a system from Ebay. At leat EB i can return in store if it is messed up.

Yea I got one from ebgames.com for $14.99 that was messed up. I just don't have a store close by to return it to and was too lazy to send it back. I'll have to buy another one.

I'm just waiting for another deal to jump on. Hopefully one will come along soon. I miss the DC I sold a couple years ago!!

Late last year, EB was selling Dreamcasts for $9.99, then they jacked the price up to $19.99

Last year, EB was probably still getting a lot of DCs traded in as people bought new $150 PS2 and Xbox systems ($99 GCNs too). At this point, most people that wanted to get rid of their DCs probably already traded them in, so EB's inventory of used DCs is probably a lot lower now (and thus the price goes up just a bit over last year).

Love my DC. Pull it out quite often. And I've got four official controllers and Power Stone 2. :D

I think EB's regular price is $19.99, but they run it at $14.99 quite often. The $9.99 sale was a great price, I doubt it will go that low unless its around a holiday again.

I wish Gamerush had an online store. None in Columbus, OH.

Is there a really good on-line source for DC games? EB's collection is...spotty, and none of the retail places near me have anything but a zillion copies of NFL 2k1. I really want to stock up on some select titles before it is too late but haven't had much luck...

Same deal here. I want to spring for one but there is no decent source for games. A $20 paperweight isnt cool.

Thanks for the post! I just picked up the dreamcast with 2 1st party controllers, a 3rd party memory card, and crazy taxi for under $30.

Damn!!! I am mad because I had the Sega Sports Bundled system that was black with the black controller that said Sega Sports on them.

Only good thing that came from it I bought it for like 50 bucks and got NBA 2k1 and NFL 2k1 with it but I gave it to a little kid in my neighborhood that didn't have any video game systems at all. He actually still owns it till this day and plays both of these games.

Perhaps you haven't checked the paperweight section of your local Staples or Office Depot recently? Paperweights can be pretty pricey these days, and for a mere $20, I'll take a Dreamcast over fancy engraved crystal any day of the week.

I bought one at EB for $19.99, it was busted, so I had to return it for another one which works perfectly. I don't mind that I paid 20 rather than 10 or 15, a DC is worth 20 bucks. How much was it at launch? I wish I bought one.

They have a 14 day same item exchange thing. They gave me no problems either. He took it, opened the box, looked at it, went in the back and gave me another one.

What a nice thing to do. You gave that kid the best gift you can give.
