[QUOTE]By now you probably have seen that for the Dreamcast Collection there’s going to be a limited edition pre-order vinyl for Australia available at JB Hi-Fi. We’ve had quite a history over the years with pre-orders and vinyl records at SEGA, there was the one for SEGA Vintage Collection and there was the blue one for SEGA Mega Drive Ultimate Collection – or Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection if you’re an American visitor to this blog. What can I say, they’ve obviously proven popular over the years!
Here’s what the Dreamcast Collection one looks like thanks to the photography skills of Lods. Can anyone spot the mistake in these photos?
As you can see a sleek silver design with the blue Dreamcast spiral logo on the centre label, rumours that it if you look into the centre as its played you will be hypnotised into not asking us endlessly about Capcom game Power Stone are just that. No, no… we’ve got snatch teams and secret underground behavioral rehabilitation centres for that. Vinyls are limited and indeed numbered once more.
Now as usual just because one place in the world has them that doesn’t mean all do, in the case of the Dreamcast one it’s been picked up for pre-order deals in Australia (obviously), France and Spain.
Now for the non Franco-Spanish-Australians there is some good news, as you can see from this third photo of Lods’…
There appears to be quite a few on my desk! That obviously means you can expect to see competitions and giveaways over the course of the next month or so for them that we’ll notify you of via the SEGA facebook/twitter accounts. I will tell you now however, that not this week but the next when I’m back for Free Stuff Friday we’ll have at least three of these up for grabs.
You may also remember from the SMDUC days that SEGA Australia put up a very early numbered issue on eBay in the name of charity. I’m pleased to confirm we’re going to be doing the same this time around in a couple weeks although not quite what you are imagining, here’s something to think about – what number is better than 1?
You’ll have to wait and see what I mean by that.[/QUOTE]
