So I was in St. Louis, MO on business and I just happened to reach out to a local game shop. Had NO idea that store owner Jason Brassard (Trade-N-Games) was one of the coolest retrogaming collectors on the planet! He gave me a tour of his "Room of Doom" and obviously, when he showed me this beauty, I had to make a video for Sega Channel.

We are proud to present this one-of-a-kind finding in such a cool way. I'm really quite humbled to be able to even make such a video. My eyes are still burning from the amount of retrogaming awesomeness I witnessed first-hand. Big thanks to Jason for the opportunity and I hope you all enjoy.

I've never seen that Kiosk before. I wonder what retail chain had that.

I was thinking the same thing. Never in a Walmart or Target so maybe Sears or something?

That is an epic kiosk. Thanks for that video. I would leave feedback but..."You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to ShinobiMan again."

Maybe a sub to his youtube channel would be a nice nod of appreciation. ;)

They had one of these in my local Toys R' Us - I remember playing Le Mans on it. Great to see one after all these years and in pristine working condition.

Amazing! And here I was hoping for just a simple Dreamcast kiosk. Those are awesome all to themselves. But one that can hold a complete DC collection? WOW!

Of course back in the early 2000's the kiosk looked slightly different than it does today. The controllers matched, for one. That, and instead of a selection of purchasable games the windowed area was stocked with then Sega of America president and COO Peter Moore, sadly pressing his palms against the glass and gazing pleadingly at passers-by.

Awesome video man! I'd seen pictures of the kiosk/setup before from the owner on other forums but this was a gem watch.

It pains my heart to see this. I miss you, Dreamcast ;3;7
