You Can Buy A SEGA Dreamcast Signed By Fred Durst On eBay

No, really.

That’s right, an eBay seller is claiming to have a mint condition Dreamcast signed by the Limp Bizkit front man himself — who is a big Call of Duty Fan.

Weirdly enough, the legitimacy of the allegedly signed console is possible. As detailed on Segabits, SEGA actually partnered with Limp Bizkit back in the day to help try and make the ill fated SegaNet popular. In October 2000 the band was going on tour, so SEGA decided to sponsor it.

Part of the deal involved fans getting to have a showdown against band members in order to win a signed console. There were also Dreamcast filled trucks called the SEGA’s Mobile Assault Tour that punters could play on during the gigs.

In regards to the partnership the then-VP of Marketing at SEGA, Julia Miller, stated “Limp Bizkit fans are parallel with our core audience of online gamers,” she said. “The tour is a key component in our crusade to ensure SegaNet is everywhere our target customer is.”

That didn’t last long. Due the popularity of the PS2 and the announcement of the GameCube and Xbox, the Dreamcast was tanking in sales.

On January 31, 2001, SEGA announced that they would be discontinuing it in favour of making the company a platform agnostic third party developer. As for Seganet, it only lasted 11 months.

But if we are to believe this seller, something from this largely forgotten partnership may remain, and it can be yours for just US$700. You only have until tomorrow Australian time though, so you better get in quick. There hadn’t been any bids placed at the time of writing.

Sorry Fred.
