Tools for opening Nintendo Systems and Dreamcast?

I'm trying to find screwdrivers for opening up a Nintendo System (Y-shaped) and a Dreamcast (torx or star bits with a peg in the middle). I don't know of anywhere that sells either of those, and I'd like to get my hands on some.

anywhere with a nice sized hardware section should have a bit set that has torx etc (if you get something thats just close it should work anyway)

if you go to sears they have a neat little bit set that will take out any screw (its for reamed screws, and if they arent already reamed after using this they will be because it makes its own indentations in the screw)

I'd like to keep the screws in one piece so I can put them back in.

The security Torx bits (dreamcast) are fairly widely available from anywhere decent that sells tools. They're actually not that uncommon.

Both my Dreamcasts (US and UK) have standard Philips screws.

Some of the speciality game places can sell you tools for opening the Nintendo system.
