Store: Ann Arbor
Notable Gaming Release: Dreamcast System
So since Sega did the memorable thing of releasing the Dreamcast on September 9th, 1999 (9.9.99), I can tell you that this story takes place on September 8th, leading into September 9th. I don’t think this will be as long and drawn out as the other stories I’ve posted, but hey, those were supposed to be short quick stories too.
So it’s the day before the Dreamcast launch. We’ve had a demo system in the store for about a month now which was really cool of Sega to do. Come to think of it, I can’t think of any other system launch that has put a demo system in stores before the system actually launched… but I digress. We started receiving all the games and accessories for the system about a week ahead of the launch and had them all ‘splayed out on the wall with the rest of the new gaming stuff.
