When I looked on the box cover of the Xbox, I didn't notice any sticker saying "only for Xbox". But in the Television commersial it shows it in the right hand corner. Doesn't the Dreamcast have the DOA 2?

The Dreamcast had DOA2, which was exclusive to North America, & DOA2LE, which came out in Japan & had some extra features from the PS2 DOA2:HC.

The PS2 had DOA2:Hardcore.

Tecmo/Microsoft insist that DOA3 is exclusive to the XBox, but basically, noone believes them because of Tecmo's track record of pushing the boundaries of 'exclusive'.

Brian,

Thanks for that info. That's what I wanted to mention as well. Tecmo is not just a developer for Microsoft? It made me a little curious, I thought it was a error on the Box itself.

Tecmo is a large Japanese development house, they've been around for years & years. Dead or Alive is the brand they're currently best known for.

They've developed for PSX, Saturn, PS2, Dreamcast in the recent past. Microsoft do not own them.
