Sega Spectrum logo sparks E3 console and service rumours

Tuesday, 28th May 2013 12:41 GMT By Dave Cook

Sega could be gearing up to announce something called Spectrum at E3 2013, according to a photo unearthed online.

NeoGAF user shaowebb posted the above photo, which bears the month of June below, suggesting that it’s related to some kind of E3 reveal. The Japanese text reads, “A new world of entertainment.”

Since the image surfaced, some sites have speculated that the logo is for a new Sega console, which seems highly unlikely at this point in time. Instead, it could be a new digital service or method of pushing out arcade content in Japan, similar to the company’s Ringwide technology that came into affect a few years ago.

Either way, the floor is now yours readers. What do you think this relates to?

    As much as i love to believe in a great thing.. screw it! I’ll hold out hope. I’d love to see a new Sega console.

    FYI guys I’m looking to create a PSN I.D. and i need some help. I’ve already tried NocturnalB and a few other things and they’ve all been taken. Any suggestions for some variant of my name for my new PSN would be greatly appreciated, thanks! Other names taken were Nocturnum (My old WoW handle) and Nocturnus (another old WoW handle). Thanks again!

    The “B” has relevance as it’s the first letter of my name, Nocturnal has to do with A) I’ve been a night owl all my life and B) I’ve coincidentally worked nights most of my adult life.

    LOL “Nocturnanus”… no chance in hell but funny as.

    I’d love to have a Sega Spectrum console, of course it would be inferior to the Nintendo 64.

    Spectrum? Seems straight forward enough. My guess would be that it’s probably a content delivery platform. Hopefully, it’s more of a branding umbrella for SEGA digital, rather than some casual portal which these things so far, in the end, have tended to be. The spectrum name certainly suggests its not likely to have such a narrow focus.

    No way. No fucking way there is a new console from SEGA and it is call Spec-freaking-trum.

    (Though it would be fun to have a battle between power of Blast Processing, power of Supercharged PC and power of Cloud)

    Yeah, Console not gonna happen. But even when Miracles could happen, does Sega have the Money to make a new Console?

    Or, you could just forget about your old name and give yourself a new start.

    In fact, that could be your screenname. ANUSTART

    Imagine it though. SEGA coming out of the blue with a new console, on par with next-gen systems or better and shocking everybody. Hey i can dream, right? :)

    Such a shame what happened to Dreamcast.

    Thanks for all the ideas guys it helped genuinely, i am now officially NocturnumB on PSN. Huzzah

    Edit: I’d also like to apologize for being off topic from the article, although i do agree with the general consensus that it’s most likely some form of service platform.

    Weird color choices. They speak of a spectrum so they use a color spectrum that is known for print media CMYK, while they make games that rely on the RGB color spectrum… Unless they are branching out to make printers or maybe become a print ad company.

    It’s a PC digital distribution service. Look at Origin, Steam, Uplay, and then look at SEGA’s PC offerings – games like COH2 and R:TW2 are both due. It’s the perfect time to announce it.
