Very few games need the boot disc, most are self booting.

And now the quest of all retro gamer's lives will be to find that one spot where all those treasures are buried... better than a chest full of gold right? :lol:

Gamestation do it every year. They take the retro stock out to make way for very Christmassy tat like Need for Speed Chav Central and FIFA/Pro Evo's. Retro tat will be back around Feb if last year is any judge.

All you need to do is download Dreamcast ISOs and burn them onto CD?
Yep, that's all you need to do. Not that i've done it ether :roll:


In fact I haven't done it looods of times, although it's 'apparently' very easy to find DC download sites.
I especially don't even download on a sort of try before you buy basis... :lol:

By the way, there are also loads of good ports and emulators for lots of clasic 8 and 16bit platforms available on auto-boot CD's.
