"[E]verything you know about video gaming is about to change, thanks to Dreamcast."In this free GDC Vault video from GDC 1999, then-president of Sega of America Bernie Stolar delivered a keynote that introduced Sega's final console prior to its US launch. Stolar extolled the virtues of its pioneering Virtual Memory Unit, game-extending online capabilities, and demos of memorable titles such as Shenmue and Capcom’s Power Stone, in the talk "Changing for the Better: Redefining Game and Hardware Development through Evolution." For more on the Dreamcast, Gamasutra has a 10-year retrospective on the console. Also of note for Dreamcast fans: the Shenmue Classic Game Postmortem will be held at GDC 2014 in March, too.
