Searched and found nothing. Lock/mock if old.

Text translates to "A new world of entertainment."

What is this thing? Arcade board maybe? Digital platform? I'm clueless here...

Like the taito boards? That'd actually be pretty good overseas. The service on the taito boards is pretty good from the bits I pick up. It sounds pretty much like you download the title you want onto the board for trial and if it sells keep it after the trial by paying for it or a subscription or something. 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'd love anything new from Sega in terms of hardware, but it's more probable that's either something really stupid (eg. mobile shit) or a fake to hype people up for nothing.

No, there's actually a good chance it's a new console. It's been almost 15 years since they released their last hardware.

Sega's been doing pretty okay for themselves iirc. I dont' see them pulling something as risky as launching a new console right now, especially after some of the past problems they had.

Dreamcast has been going strong for more than 15 years, even longer than PS2. It's time for the next big thing.

Yes. Sammy's pachinko business pretty much pays the bills.

Well I meant to say good enough. It sounds really risky to get back into the console business.


To be honest, I would totally be down for a new SEGA console. I was both a SEGA and Nintendo kid but... I don't see it happening.

So is this the real name for the Orbi, or does Sega have TWO upcoming consoles they're of course going to announce soon? :p

Seriously though, yeah, probably either an arcade board or digigal platform. Good guesses.

Sammy has plenty of money, but it's extremely unlikely that they'd want to spend lots of it on a console...

Low chance of it being anything outside of arcade hardware, and if it's anything, it's most likely a gaming tablet as SEGA likes to innovate, or a handheld (very low chance).

I'd play the hell out of a Sega Android Tablet with a six button controller and access to their console and arcade library.

I know there is the katakana logo, but they use the English logo in Japan, too.
