bleemcast! is an emulator that allows the play of one of three Sony Playstation discs on the Sega Dreamcast. It is compatible with most Dreamcast controllers and steering wheels, and enhances the supported PSOne game with smoothed visuals and increased resolution.

HistoryEdit

bleem! for Dreamcast was announced on May 11, 2000, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, commonly referred to as E3.[1] It was a completely new emulator that featured some of the same features as the Windows version of bleem! but shared none of the same code.

At the E3 convention, it was announced that four "bleempacks" would be released which would support 100 games each.[2] Due to the fact that the Dreamcast controller lacks some of the buttons on the Playstation, there were plans to release a Bleem controller that was similarly designed to Sony's DualShock controller, and a Playstation to Dreamcast controller converter called the bleempod. In August 2001, it was announced that testing had begun for WWF Smackdown support. Due to technical difficulties and lack of funding due to lawsuits from Sony, none of these products were released.

Due to a lack of time and employees required to ensure that each of the 100 games on each bleempak was fully compatible, the bleempak idea was scrapped. Eventually, bleem! began releasing bleem! for the Dreamcast as individual releases for the price of $4.99US. Only three bleemcast! discs were ever released, supporting Gran Turismo 2, Metal Gear Solid, and Tekken 3.
