Find out how to get a SEGAbits themed shirt


[This is a pre-order, last day to order is 6/10/13]

I usually get messages from users asking how they can support and help the site. Honestly, the first few years we launched the site we tried advertisements, but it’s hard to run a site on such things for multiple reasons I won’t get into. Now, we run a great ad-free website and frankly I like it better this way. But it still costs money to do things, especially things we want to do for the future of the site. So if you want to help, pick up a SEGAbits shirt. You get a shirt, we get some cash to give you more ad-free content. Everyone wins!

Sega – The Earthquake Affects News Round Up

We’ve all seen the devastation in Japan caused by the earthquake, tsunami and the ongoing nuclear worries. Many companies have felt the effects, not least Sega, who have donated a considerable amout of money to the recovery efforts. In this article I will cover all of the Sega related infomation we have linked to the earthquake.

Sega have been extremely generous when it comes to donations from both sides of the pond.

-Sega Japan is donating 200 million yen to support recovery efforts. That is approximately £1,542,827 GBP or $2,481,722 USD.

-Sega Europe and Sports Interactive have donated all of their revenue from the Football Manager app starting from last Friday for the next 7 days to the disaster relief funds in Japan.

-Sega America will donate all proceeds from Sonic iOS titles to the Red Cross disaster relief funds in Japan.

As an added incentive Sega have even lowered the price of the Sonic iOS games for this week, there is simply no excuse not to go get them right now!

Donation button put up, server move details

We have put up a donation button on the right hand side (points to it), so if any of you guys want to help out the site by dropping a few dollars our way we appreciate it. Also, we will be moving servers soon, hopefully in the next few days. This will mean some down time, hopefully not too much. Some users have been contacting me via e-mail and MSN that they heard rumors that the site was joining some network. False. We are not for sale, but thanks for shopping.

Outside of the server move, not much to talk about here. We will be changing some stuff around the main page and the forums, but not big changes. I’m quite happy with our sites layout and functionality. Suggestions?
