    Wait a second...So what you're saying is that the 4 and 8 gig SD cards won't work on the Wii?

    Dreamcast games did not use CD-ROM's, they used GD-ROMs, which hold 1.2 gigs, almost twice the size of a CD-ROM.

    Dreamcast

    GD-ROM

    I can't really say, you can try it though!

    fyi, Nintendo has not mentioned a limit to the SD card size as of yet.

    SEGA didn't use a very efficient compression algorithm for the games so its perfectly possible to compress a Dreamcast game down to fit on a CD-R (700Mb). I know - I have a Dreamcast and compressed and burned games onto CD-Rs to play on my Dreamcast (Which, BTW, doesn't need to be modded in any way to play CD-R's O_O )

    what about an emulater on vc that plays dreamcast disks so you dont need to download them, but would sega saturn be easier?? with this idea it would add loads of games to the wii and sega would make some money

    You would need to install a laser reading head that could read CD's to do that.
    The Saturn was pretty much a failure so I doubt they will have an VC Saturn games due to low demand (BTW, I have a Saturn)

That would be cool also.
    Sega 32x..... Knuckles Chaotix!!!
    If the Xbox 360 console falls and hits someone, especially a small child, it could cause serious injury.

    Have y'all ever noticed the sounds from the Wii menu? Sound EXACTLY like the Dreamcast menu. (Some of the sounds, not all though). Interesting...

    Actually the Dreamcast used a proprietary format that could hold 900-1200mb. GD-ROM. And emulation isn't completely out of the picture, especially with the GPU in the system, and having a closed development setup makes it much easier to develop for a system, rather than a PC. I would say that we could very well see a DC VC, especially with the support of SEGA, that would be awesome! And if they could allow you to put games onto your SD cards, and just redownload them w/o having to re-pay for them, that would be intense!

    I would love it if dreamcast games came to the virtual console.

    Why did the dreamcast go bust anyway? It was such an amazing console with great graphics; specially for its time. And remember the really cool little computer memory card thing you got which plugged into the controller.

    I think I am salvivating over the prospect that Shenmue 1 and 2 will be coming to the Wii.
