Dreamcast: Help me decide, do i need 4 controllers instead of 2?

I have a dreamcast which i just purchased. I'm trying to decide if i shoudl go ahead and get four controllers. I already have two. And i dont' see alot of times when 4 people will want to play (i've barely got any use out of my PS2 multitap) So i can't decide if i should buy the two extra controllers. It'll cost about 25-35 dollars. Would it be worth it just for the VMU slots??

Someone chime in and help me weigh the pros and cons.

I have 4 controllers. Why? QuakeIII, Unreal, Virtua Tennis, Royal Rumble, NFL2k2, NCAA2k2, WSBB2k2...you get the idea.

Nothing is as fun as going at it 4 on 4 in Virtua Tennis or Royal Rumble, so the decision should be made based on the fact of how often you are going to play 4 player.

I would say go for it anyway, the controllers are really cheap right now.

I say yes. Even if you won't play with four people very often, you're essentially picking up backup controllers as well. If one of your controllers goes kaputt in a year or two, you'll be hard pressed to find a replacement.

I'd get 4 if you even think you might have 3 friends over wanting to play. I also reccomend the Mad Catz Dream Pad. It's much more comfy than the Sega controller IMO and you can find them for $10-15 now.
