I have never known the 360 to be the successor. But I have wondered some as to why the DC failed. It was and still is an awesome console!

I like to think of the Xbox and Xbox 360 as successors to the Dreamcast. That Microsoft took Sega's vision of an online console and ran with it. I went from DC to Xbox... when I got my Xbox I got the Sega bundle with Jet Set Radio Future and Sega GT, then I bought Shenmue 2, Crazy Taxi 3 etc etc. After the Dreamcast's demise, jumping to the Xbox ship seemed to be the most logical step.

I think the reason the Dreamcast failed was just a lack of money, they sold quite a lot of consoles... but it still wasn't making them enough dough to go all the way. The PS2 looming over it didn't help matters either.

Dreamcast failed because a lot of things. Mainly because they ha no money,ps2 was hyped a lot especially with the dvd player,burning disk is really easy.they didn't meet their sales for holiday 2000. And people call the first xbox the successor to DC because the controller was similar with the shape and colored buttons,also the triggers and xbox had a lot of sega games.

PS2 killed the dreamcast.............plus Sega doesnt have the cash to throw around.

360 is known to be the successor since many dreamcast games went to 360.

In South Africa people didn't even know what a Xbox, Dreamcast or Gamecube was. It was all about the PS2 which in my opinion was the better console at that time due to the amount of avaidable and exclusive games.

The 360 is the console that seeked revenge on Playstation for killing his older brother the dreamcast.

In 2006 Playstation 3 came to kill the newbie, But it was no good, Xbox 360 bitch slapped it for years until 2009, in which case it's still bitch slapping it.
