RAGE 2 will be playable on this Dreamcast

Bethesda’s official RAGE 2 Twitter account released a surprising image this week, showcasing their latest game running on a SEGA Dreamcast. Well, maybe “on a Dreamcast” is overselling it a bit… Perhaps “within a Dreamcast” is more accurate. 

Yes, Bethesda has created a gaming PC within the shell of SEGA’s long-obsolete Dreamcast console, and if you live in the US, you may be lucky enough to win it. All you have to do is follow the RAGE 2 Twitter account and retweet this tweet for a chance to win. Entrants must be from the US. 

I know what you are thinking. How did they fit a PC into a Dreamcast shell? Well, this wouldn’t be the first time that a PC modder had retrofitted SEGA’s last console with modern PC parts, but it is worth noting that the system is only large enough to fit a MITX motherboard inside. 

Our guess is that an AMD Ryzen APU powers this system, likely a Ryzen 3 2200G or a Ryzen 5 2400G, and Bethesda’s $590 valuation of this system supports this hypothesis. Strangely, this would mean that this RAGE 2 themed custom PC would sit below RAGE 2’s official PC system requirements, which were released earlier today.
