Installation and Setup
Ed: Welcome to the second of our two part Dreamcast review. If you missed part 1 from yesterday, you'll probably want to read that first before continuing on here.
The Dreamcast package comes with the console, one controller, a composite A/V cable, the power cord, a 50-foot phone cable, Internet access software, and a disc with seven playable demos. A VMU is not included nor is a full-version game.
Since the Dreamcast is a dedicated machine, installation is no different from a VCR. You just connect the three RCA plugs from the console into your television and plug it in. That's it. Upon your first boot, you'll enter a setup menu where you can set the internal clock and define your menu languages. If you haven't put in a disc, you'll be greeted with the following screen:

From here, you can choose to play a game, a music CD, or access your VMU.
The Demo Disc contains the following playable demos:
- Sonic Adventure
- Ready 2 Rumble
- Monaco Grand Prix
- Power Stone
- House of the Dead 2
- Flag to Flag
- Sega Bass Fishing
