Sega Building New Arcade Hardware?

image Perhaps or this set of trademarks could be related to an unannounced arcade game. Hello, AM2? Anyway, Sega trademarked three things in the US and Europe that appear to be linked: Ringedge, Ringwide, and a logo with rings.

 

All of these items are in a slightly different sector than your run of the mill video game trademark. They are for use with video game software, arcade game boards, stand alone video game machines, and arcade game machines with built-in screens. So, whatever these are they sound arcade related.

 

My first thought when I discovered these was the Sega Activator since it was a “ring”, but what was supposed to enhance fighting games ended up turning them into Para Para Paradise.

    probably a sucessor to lindberg, which makes sense considering that a Pentium 4+SLI Geforce 6800 isn’t very cost effective anymore.

    • ECM

      Sega Europe has a board named Europa-R which is more powerful than Lindbergh–it’s the tech that lies beneath the hood of the arcade Sega Rally 3.

      Some specs:

      * CPU: Intel Pentium Dual-Core 3.4 GHz
      * RAM: 8GB (2x 4GB modules)
      * GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 8800
      * Protection: High Spec original security module.
      * Other: HDTV Compatible, DVD Drive Support, Sega ALL.NET online support

      More info: http://www.system16.com/hardware.php?id=907 (granted a lot of PCs out there right now–mine, for example–stomp this but there really isn’t a need for still more powerful arcade hardware when most arcade games appear to be running, at best, at 720p).

        I see, then they don’t really need a new cabinet at this point… well then I have no clue.

    Could be lower end too honestly. Maybe another Naomi derivative?

  • Mazen

    Ringedge Well I can live with that name if its the next arcade board kinda taken from cutting edge.
