SD Card Adapter for Emulation on the Sega Dreamcast

Sega-Dreamcast-SD-Card-AdapterStraight from China comes the easy answer to homebrew on the Sega Dreamcast. A SD Card adapter which plugs into the Dreamcast's serial port, allows direct access to your homebrew, emulators and ROMs after using the supplied boot disc. 

The device is now available to buy from the online Chinese retailer Taobao for approximately $35. The device has been listed as being compatible with many of the existing emulators for a large variety of consoles, including the Nintendo Famicom, Sega Megadrive and Super Nintendo.

A quick video slideshow has arrived on YouTube showcasing the design which can be seen here.

Sega-Dreamcast-VGA-Ready-ConsoleAnd if this news hasn't already excited you, it's about to. The same company has released a VGA ready Sega Dreamcast with a built in SD Card slot, similar to the external one above.

For those wanting picture perfect games from Sega's abandoned powerhouse have often had to hold back until the occasional VGA box arrives on eBay. However the $300 price tag might put off a few gamers.

The updated Dreamcast also features S-Video, Composite Video, a currently unknown switch on the back and what appears to be an alternate BIOS.

While we can't comment on the picture quality or the emulators off the SD card as of yet, but hopefully we will get our hands on some kit at some point to review both items.
