The DreamVast is the fourth and last console released by Vena. It is based on the Dreamcast by Sega. The DreamVast has a moderately successful launch, however sales of the console plummet when Vonny announce the Playsystem 2.

The DreamVast's main rivals are the Playsystem 2 by Vonny and the mBox by Mirconoft. The DreamVast fails to have a higher marketshare than either of its rival consoles.

The DreamVast introduced numerous features that would be standard to future consoles. All models were shipped with modems allowing users to browse the net and play games online via a dedicated server.
