Yeah but once you get over the initial shock it was quite funny, Sega really did make some strong consoles!

They did indeed!  I was impressed with how resilient the Dreamcast was!

That was a good watch, painful, but good!

See the Dreamcast was so far ahead of its time its even indestructible!

I don't see the humour in needlessly smashing the shit out of perfectly good consoles.  I think the video would have been more amusing if someone had grabbed those two dullards by their throats and chucked them off the platform instead.

I'm pretty sure the Nintendo Gamecube can survive near any impact due to the design of the console. I've seen numerous tests performed on the newer generation systems (Gamecube and newer) and from what I've seen, the Gamecube can take nearly any impact. I mean it's the only system I know that can survive two impacts from a sledgehammer and a 3 story drop.

Though that particular one in the video died after a 15 foot drop :p haha

But yeah I recall dropping my gamecube down the stairs and it was still working, infact its still the one I have now! Amazed it doesn't have anything more than a few scratches
