Um...no. I'm linking you to that GameSpy article I posted:
The successful launch of PlayStation 2 broke the back of Sega. Price drops no longer mattered. Superior library no longer mattered. Dreamcast never caught on in Japan; and now that PlayStation 2 had arrived, American consumers no longer had any interest in Dreamcast. On January 24th, Sega formally dropped out of the hardware business.
That was in 2001. Sure, it lasted two years. And when the PS2 launched, it lasted another two months.

Wrong again. Microsoft made a deal with Sega, that the Dreamcast and it's games would use Windows CE, basically as advertising. The Dreamcast ended up having Widows CE like the PS3 has Linux, and very, very few games ended up using Windows CE. This was at launch, mind you. When Microsoft realized Sega wasn't holding up the end of their bargain, they did what any intelligent person would do, they walked away.

What? That's really, really awful logic there. While I'm not saying XBL was the first online console service, it was the first that anyone cared about. Still, though, what does that have to do with being a PC gamer?

Okay. I mean, I'm actually giving you facts, not opinions. I'm looking things up, doing research. You should really be doing the same.

No it's not. You just don't like paying for services.

Really? I didn't know there's PC versions of Crackdown, Crackdown 2, Dead or Alive 4, Forza Motorsport 2, 3, and 4, Gears of War 2 and 3, Halo 3, Halo Wars, Halo ODST, Halo Reach, Perfect Dark Zero, Project Gotham Racing 3 and 4, and a bunch of other games I didn't feel like posting but are exclusive to 360.
I'm pretty much done arguing with you, though. You've proven you won't listen to reason or facts, you're just stuck in your (massively
incorrect) opinions. So, good day to you, I wash my hands of this whole mess.
