Just saw this really awful clickbait article. "Sega Prepares Console Comeback, and they're about to Get Wrecked!"
I usually ignore these but this one sounded so funny I gave them what they wanted and clicked.
These are the three bullet points at the start of the article:
"1. One journalist is teasing some big Sega news for June 4th.
2. June 3rd is the group's 60th Anniversary.
3. Could Sega be prepping to re-enter the console war?"
You got that. Some other journalist said Sega's got news coming. Also the 60th anniversary is coming up. And then he just re-states the question.
"Considering June 3rd is Sega's 60th anniversary, there's reason to think the company is re-entering the hardware game."
I don't need to explain to you all why there totally isn't reason to think that at all. The article just goes on about how terrible of an idea it would be and doesn't provide any proof or viable information as to why. The closest they get to doing so is when they talk about Sega Shiro, the son of Segata Sanshiro who promoted the Saturn.
"Why follow up a marketable character if you're not following up on the product he was meant for? It's almost as if Sega is gearing up for a big advertising push." it says.
Yeah, geez. You know it's almost as if it's their 60th Anniversary and that would call for a big advertising push.
It's kind of hilarious.
The five comments on the article all point out how shit it is so no one's falling for it but it doesn't matter. So long as they get the clicks, it's all good.
I won't be deliberately giving them clicks anymore but doing it once was good for a laugh.
