While the next major update comes out here’s something to tantalize you for a bit . There’ve been quite a few people claiming this is project is fake because we don’t have a prototype. Well folks take a look at the Spartan in it’s physical glory.
Below are pictures of the console prototype. Please excuse the quality of the photos, a new camera is on it’s way. At that point we can actually shoot videos.
Here’s some info on what ports are available in the case:
- 2 front USB 3.0 ports
- 2 back USB 3.0 ports
- 1 USB Type-C / Thunderbolt port
- 1 HDMI outlet
- 1 DisplayPort
- 1 Ethernet port
To be added
- We have space in the chassis to add a disc drive. For testing and development, we’ve been using external drives/peripherals to read media.
The 6 button controller
A lot of people have asked about creating a 6 face button controller. We’re looking into this (it may take some time) but we’re looking into revamping our controller to have 6 face buttons. There are a lot of us that miss those A, B, C, X, Y, Z buttons.
The “open source” OS.
If this proposal is successful with Sega, they will make this a proprietary closed source OS. We’re building a prototype so no decisions are final here.
Thank you everyone for all your overwhelming support. It was completely unexpected. And to all those people criticizing and ranting. Please be patient while we work on this prototype and in time we hope we can convince you otherwise.
This isn’t the update we wanted to give you but we hope it’s good enough to fill the gap while you wait.
