Fuji Television Divers 2000 Series CX-1 - an impressive title, and an even more impressive piece of Sega hardware.This very special version of the Dreamcast came with everything a serious user could ever want. A remote (for the tv-function), a controller, keyboard, Vibration Pack, internet and teleconference software, a headset and an instruction video. And even though the built-in screen is fairly small, it is of exceptional quality.The unit is designed to be used every day, and even the antenna doubles as a place to hang the headset when it is not in use. Down the sides are two rows of LEDs, that light up when the unit is in use - a feature that definitely does not make the overall appeal any less.Games are loaded from the top, just like your regular Dreamcast. Unfortunately neither a slot or tray loading drive made it to production, even-though it would have went well with the "Sonic head/iMac" look.The DIVERS 2000 was released in the midst of the short Dreamcast life-span, and is considered as Sega's last contribution to Dreamcast collectors the world over.

  1. I've seen this one before, for a second I hoped for a link to an auction.

    Pretty cool to see it again though

  3. Erm... I would if I could find you one... *FK sneaks off without knowing where to get one...*

    Is that a necessity of posting Gnome?

  4. Well, not a necessity dear Father, no, but it would definitely be helpful, as this mostly is a blog that hunts down (and shoots) rarities and bargains...
