You got me on that one Tequila Sunset the dreamcast was the first to feature pressure sensitive buttons (I forgot abou that, the shoulder buttons, e.t.c.). I actually think the dreamcast is/was a good console, and deserves a lot more credit and respect than what it got. I am in NO WAY badmouthing it.

My only point that I was making is that the PS2 is revolutionary. Unlike what Dark Child was saying.

I believe there are no 'bad' consoles in existance.

which consoles dvd player had to be upgraded at the last minit coz all the images were in green, which console forces you to buy a regon x disk before u can use its dvd player

THATS RIGHT NONE OF THEM!
----
The PS2 doesn't need Region X to play DVDs. Region X just makes the PS2 into a multiregion dvd player. The DVD drves weren't changed because of green screen. It eas intentionally added by Sony to stop the pirating of DVDs. The green screen only springs into action when an RGB cable is used. Sony NEVER changed/upgraded anything to do with the DVD player. Region X can also stop this green screen.

Oh, and I was mearly arguing with you when you said the PS2 had no originality. It quite clearly does.

'Nuff said.

ok then if i must say more outlaw and tom uk

which consoles dvd player had to be upgraded at the last minit coz all the images were in green, which console forces you to buy a regon x disk before u can use its dvd player
THATS RIGHT THE PLAYSTATION2

and dont tell me that its better than not having a dvd player because dreamcast had a modem and internet access that wokred without having to buy a region x cd and worked perfectly first time

oh and dont tell me u can use a pc for that coz guess what u can use pcs, dvds, even in car flatscreens for dvds

i rest my case

I'll take it you meant "unlike PS2". In which case:

Which console was first to include a DVD drive for bigger storage on games?

Which console was the first console to have a built in DVD movie player?

Which console was the first to be able to be played verticle or horizontal?

Which console was the first to have a mechanical DVD drive?

Which console was the first to use pressure sensitive buttons on the controller?

And there's more, but this is the Xbox forum, so I'll stop now.
