After months of waiting by Sega fans across Europe, Sega have announced that the online portion of the much awaited Daytona 2001, won't actually be in the game..

Apparently the tight schedule for Dreamcast releases, and the fact that Sega recently re-organised their business model to focus on the software side of things, has ment that the Online play has sadly missed the boat, but instead online features such as Scoreboards and Ghost Car data can be uploaded and downloaded for you to race against.. not quite the same thing though as full head to head racing, really.

This is seen as another blow to many Dreamcast owners, who were hoping to get the classic Daytona game as a fully head-to-head racing game to rival all others.
