If you were a fan of Sega in the late 90s to early 2000s, odds are you at least spent some time visiting PlanetDreamcast, a GameSpy site dedicated to the Sega console which had news, reviews and features for reading. PlanetDreamcast is also known as the starting grounds of community websites such as Shadow of a Hedgehog and PSO World. In 2009, IGN began redirecting planetdreamcast.com to RPGPlanet, and now is currently pointing to ClassicGaming with nary a Dreamcast mention in sight. Therefore, we are now hosting a mostly complete backup of PlanetDreamcast for archival purposes at http://planetdc.segaretro.org
One image is missing, the quizzes don’t work, the news search doesn’t work, and there is no forum backup. The articles, features, reviews and such all appear to be there, though. Many of the videos linked in the reviews are still available at FilePlanet. We hope you enjoy this little piece of history and special thanks to profshiny for his work.q IXsVh su RQNhWk
Thanks for this guys! Greetings from Italy.
This is the sort of thing that arouses me.
Thank you for preserving the history before it disappeared into the bit bucket. By the way, if you want to backup the forums as well, I’ve found a link on archive.org that works (for now):
It doesn’t have all the posts archived, but you can still find quite a few. For example, here is some of the chatter that happened on 9/9/9, the 10th anniversary of the Dreamcast: http://web.archive.org/web/20100912165008/http://forumplanet.gamespy.com:80/general_discussion/b49577/20129175/p1/
