• Sega Just Sold Off Its Arcade Business

    Sega is a name that is undoubtedly familiar to many gamers. The company has been responsible for some very memorable arcade games, and over in Japan, the company operated an entire building in Akihabara, Tokyo where it housed many popular Sega arcade games, but it looks like it’s the end of an era.

    This is because Sega Sammy, the parent company behind Sega Entertainment, has announced that they will be selling off its arcade business to Genda Inc., which for those unfamiliar is an amusement rental business. Sega will be transferring 85.1% of its shares of its subsidiary to Genda while retaining the remainder, with the company stating that they expect to record a loss of around $191 million by the end of the fiscal year.

There were 121,888 new cases Thursday, marking the third time this week that America topped its previous record.

  • The iPhone’s ultrawide camera could get a big boost in 2021, says Kuo

    The iPhone 12 has just barely launched, but we already have some idea what next year’s lineup could look like — according to TFI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s 2021 iPhones will keep the new form factor and screen sizes introduced with the iPhone 12 line, but offer an improved ultrawide camera on the high-end Pro and Pro Max models (via MacRumors).

    Kuo predicted the iPhone 12 line and now seems set to reveal what to expect from the 2021 models nearly a year before they launch. This time, Kuo says the ultrawide camera of the Pro and Pro Max will be upgraded from the current f/2.4, five-element lens setup to an f/1.8, six-element lens with autofocus.
