The 128-bit console, which was originally due to be launched in the UK and across Europe on September 23rd, will now hit retail on October 14th. CTW understands that the delay is due to a number of critical factors involving the machine’s online capabilities.
Sega recently put back the launch of Dreamcast in Australia, although the US launch is understood to be going ahead on September 9th as planned. Commenting on the decision, J-F Cecillon, chief executive officer of Sega Europe said, "Dreamcast involves the most advanced technology ever incorporated into a games console. Our free Internet access is an industry first and BT has been key in its creation across Europe."
