A few weeks ago Sega's US branch of Dreamarena announced that users could win themselves a car, and we commented at the time that most of the funky stuff American users were getting to experience with Dreamarena would never make a transition over to these shores. Well slap us about the face and teach us not to second guess Sega why doncha? Today the company has announced that its users in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany and Spain have the opportunity to get their grubby mits on a Vauxhall VX220, worth over £23,000. To those of you who don't know, the VX220 is the impressive new sports car the previously unexciting car manufacturer has recently blown away Jeremy Clarkson with. But moving on, it has a wide array of fans, and all you have to do to win one is answer questions based on the company's latest title, Metropolis Street Racer (more commonly known as MSR). Each week Dreamarena users will be asked three questions based on the game's three major cities, San Francisco, London and Tokyo. Players race against the clock to answer questions and win kilometres, which will be totalled to produce European league tables. Yes we know it sounds like reader's digest or something equally pathetic, but this is Sega so hopefully we can expect something a little more impressive. There are all sorts of other entertaining sections like the "high risk" questions to gamble your kilometres. This sounds nice, but why couldn't the competition involve multiplayer Dreamcast games and not a quiz show? The full press release can be read here.
UPDATE: 70k concurrent players is highest of any PlayStation PC release.
