Duh..Because you do. Just like the Playstation, the games are copy protected and you need a modchip to play them.

Also, the Dreamcast [b]is not[/b] easier to backup then the Saturn. The Saturn is easier, it's just a straight copy. Have you ever tried to backup an original Dreamcast game? You obviously haven't if you think it's easy. Original Dreamcast games can't be read in standard CD-ROM drives so they have to be ripped via a serial cable or a Broad Band Adapter.

It's easiest to [i]play[/i] a Dreamcast game once it's been ripped from the original media but ripping the game in the first place can take hours.

In Short...

You need a MODchip to Play Saturn games, but Saturn games are easy to copy.

You DO NOT need a MODchip to Play Dreamcast games, but [i]Original[/i] Dreamcast games are more difficult to copy..

Get it??
