Sega Dreamcast Wireless Control Pads ‘DreamConn’ Out Now

DreamConn-Sega-Dreamcast-Wireless-PadsAlthough ahead of its time, the Dreamcast arrived a good few years before wireless technology became a gaming standard. With plenty of fans still supporting Sega’s swan song today, it comes as no surprise that an aftermarket cable-free control pad is now available - the DreamConn.

Although a pricey addition to any retro gamer’s arsenal, the DreamConn is promising quite a lot for fans of the system. Going by the control pad’s on-going sale over on eBay, around 14 hours worth of battery life is promised, along with micro-usb charging, and support for both the Visual Memory Units and a rumble pack too.

For the rather hefty cost of $150 you’ll secure yourself this modified Dreamcast control pad and the accompanying receiver to plug into the console. Although we don’t expect anyone to be placing large orders, it’s worth noting that it’s yet to be confirmed if two DreamConn control pads can work in harmony.

£100 + postage + import fees...

I can imagine it being a much nicer controller without the silly wire placement but it is far too expensive, like cynically too expensive...

Price should be put in the title.....all the excitement when I read it was quickly extinguished to find out it is $150, particularly as Dreamcast controllers are about £10 these days.

Think I'll cope with cables for that price. Sega was experimenting with wireless technology 10 years before Dreamcast - it would have surely only been a matter of time for an official accessory if the DC had fulfilled it's lifecycle.
