    And the Dreamcast did it well, too - their VGA adapter didn't convert back to VGA from another format as some more recent adaptors do, retaining image quality.

    The current article is aimed more at X-Box / Gamecube / Playstation 2 owners who are thinking of buying an adaptor.

    Consoles don't live or die because of their technology - the major reason behind any console's success and longevity is software developer support.

    I had a Nintendo64 years back and it beat the pants off a PlayStation in terms of technological capability (it was 64bit console). But a lack of decent titles sunk the N64.

    So while Dreamcast may have had certain technological capabilities the others are only beginning to develop, the DC can't compete with the PS2 for popularity and support. Unfortunate but that's the reality of the console market.
