Just look at that thing! I've got stuff from the 80s that was originally white and have yellowed but nothing near that bad! That Dreamcast must have been sitting in extreme direct sunlight since 1999! I wonder if the controller and VMU was as yellowed as the console?

I’ll bet the owner smoked. That would help explain it.

That is very possible. If you smoke in the same room all the time it doesn't take long before the walls has a nasty residue all over them. You know if that Dreamcast had clean power and reset buttons and a clean controller port bezel I could have been fooled into thinking it was a limited edition yellow Dreamcast at first glance.

Here is where I found it act if you want to check out the other pictures of it

I just noticed it is a Japanese model. Some Japanese guy was probably chain smoking with his Dreamcast sitting in a window while he played Shenmue. :olol:
