The title needs to be "Sega going to announce Sega Spectrum on June 12th, 2013, possibly a new console."

That would get people jumping to this thread.

But yeah I really...REALLY, doubt it's a new console, maybe another arcade machine.

Wow, they actually had Shining Force games for the RingEdge? It looks awesome!

Seriously, a home console with that + Border Break would be amazing.

Wikipedia entry for RingEdge

At the bottom it shows the RingEdge2!

Means you buy one machine and have access to a huge library on it without changing boards. Course this is all secondhand from me though so its probably got more ins and outs than that on the taito board setup. Seemed like how it was described to me though.

Anyhow if thats what Sega Spectrum is it'd be cool in my eyes.

Also Sega isn't doing badly financially, but its not amazing enough to go for a console bid in my eyes. Keep your expectations in check Gaf. They had some impressive numbers during the THQ bankruptcy, but they still aren't big enough to go back into consoles from what I see.

I'm sure that SEGA already has a digital system for their arcades, at least guilty gear R virtua fighter 5 and under night in birth among others work on that system

I expect this to be nothing (relevant to me). Probably an arcade board, PC hardware, or a DD platform. Whatever.

But deep down inside I believe that it's Sega's return to the console business. Believe!

GD-ROM was just a cd format that could hold 1,000MB instead of 750MB. I don't think it would be very hard to support.

One of the reasons the Dreamcast died was because of how easy it was to rip the games to cd and pirate them

Maybe, but almost no CD drives support GD-ROMs... I guess a custom drive might be able to though. But you can't put a Dreamcast disc in a computer and expect it to be able to read it.

That was possible because the Dreamcast was CD (as in, audio CD) compatible, and people got in through an oversight in the CD section of the code. And it really wasn't one of the reasons why the Dreamcast died, with those sales they were doomed anyway given their financial situation... it just hurt Sega a bit.

Man if we were to sit here listing the reasons for why the Dreamcast died, we'd be here all day.

From what I understand, though, poor performance in Japan played a pretty huge part. It was actually doing alright here all things considered.

Pcs and even cd players could read data off a gd-rom. This could totally be legit.

There's no way anyone seriously thinks this could be a console right? You are all seriously deluding yourselves...SEGA has said time after time that they see digital as their future for success, and boxed games have been cut to a minimum. SEGA absolutely does not have the financial resources to launch a new console without a 100% chance of bankruptcy...

Still...I'd buy it if they did. I never thought the industry would feel the same without a SEGA console, but honestly, by 2002 it seemed like most gamers I knew were pretty much passed it.

And that's another reason why SEGA can't make a console. If they go belly-up completely, the Sonic franchise will be purchased by Nintendo and the comic shall die forever...tears shed by no one but me

To those talking about arcade hardware, has this historically been done at E3 previously when arcades were a bigger deal? I'm obviously not suggesting that it's a new console as I haven't had a history of head trauma, but I assume it would be more consumer focused than new arcade kits, especially at a western focused event such as E3.

If you don't believe me compare it to the real SEGA logo, the spacing is different, sadly.

I do see some differences between the logo on this slide and the official logo, especially in the curves of the S.

What I don't get is why didn't the person faking this image simply use a high-resolution logo from Google image search, thus eliminating any discrepancies between the logo on the fake picture and the real thing? It makes no sense to redraw the logo. Is there any other way the logo could have ended up with these little mistakes?

Not saying you're not right (though being a SEGA fan, I hope you're not), it just seems odd...

Edit: and because I have way too much free time, here's a comparison between the official logo (on top) and the logo on the slide (on the bottom). The differences are subtle, but plenty enough to tell this isn't the official logo.



Kudos to Xun for noticing it first.

I got it. optimiss got it!

The logo is not the official one because it was created using the SEGA font, which I'm pretty certain is fanmade, and thus couldn't possibly be used in an official document.

Here's the previous image with the word "SEGA" rendered using that font added on the bottom and the slide logo adjusted to match its horizontal length. You can see the two are clearly the same, bearing the same small differences to the proper official logo.



As much as I hate to say it, this is obviously fake.

Though I wish it were true, to be honest. I can't help but get all excited whenever people start speculating about a new SEGA console, even though I know fully well that it'll never happen. Oh well.

This would be interesting if this is a new SEGA console, but can this market sustain a fourth console?

Could it be an actual retro console like the new Neo Geo X where you can d/l all their old games to it with an HDMI port, full 1080p, etc.?
