Welcome to the very first update of the Spartan console. On a bimonthly basis we’ll bring you news on the hardware and software that’s running on the Spartan.
The Spartan console is a proposal to bring Sega back into the console market. We have a working prototype and photos/videos will be released soon of the working console. Our aim is to be backwards compatible with previous gen Sega games via an online store. Be sure to sign up to our newsletter to get more updates.
Today we’ve got news about:
- The new Spartan controller.
- A brand new tech demo we’re developing called, Sonic 4K (the name is temporary)
- A render and news on the new console design.
The Spartan controller.
The controller has an overall matte finish and since comfortably in the hands. Because of this finish, you can still fortunately hold on to the controller even if your hands are sweaty as hell.
It has the following features:
- A TURBO button (because that is a worthy feature).
- Rumble motors.
- 50 hour battery life.
- 7 – 10 meter range.
- White and Black versions will be available.
- More features will be added…
There will be various colours available after the initial release as well as clip on grips and skin. There’ll be more updates on the controller in the coming weeks.
The Sonic 4K Tech Demo
Yup, you read that right. We’re preparing to show off the hardware with a graphically rich open world Sonic demo game which will be running at 4K. Look at this juicy gif snippet below.
There will be a full video released in the next update.
The Spartan console case design
What’s currently happening is that the case has been designed and the first case is finalising being made. It’s literally 1 or 2 days before it arrives at my doorstep. THEN I’ll put the parts all together and BANG! We have our first prototype.
Yes, this is another 3d render of a mean looking console but don’t go away! In the next update there’ll be pictures of the actual console!
In the next update, there will be details on SpartanOS, photos (maybe a video) of the console running and a Sonic 4K video!
