A Dreamcast emulator is coming to Xbox One

Microsoft and SEGA have had a long history with each other. Following the demise of the Dreamcast, games that were potentially supposed to be released for the short-lived console ended up on Microsoft’s (then) up-and-coming Xbox, which makes this announcement seem like it should have happened sooner. 

According to Xbox emulator site XB1 emu, a Dreamcast emulator is coming to Xbox One! They promise that players will be able to “Play your favorite Sega Dreamcast games on your Xbox One! No region lock, support save/load state, video/input configuration, and a turbo mode.” The emulator is scheduled to be released later this summer. 

Like other similar emulators, I have a feeling this one will get shut down. Given SEGA’s recent interest in reviving dormant IP, this endeavor by XB1 Emu might be short lived. Do you guys think it’s a good idea? Discuss in the comments below!

    If Sega Forever becomes a reality, there’s no way this emulator will last. It wouldn’t make any sense for Sega to release Sega Forever on consoles WHILE also having a Dreamcast emulator on the Xbox One too.

      Definitely agree

    Apparently, Sega Forever will be a subscription streaming service (no emulator+game, just streaming), so I’d rather go with an emulator.

    Sega or any company doesnt stop this emulator, because it run under “developer mode”.

    But please donate!
