Sega defenders of the early 90s had one trump card in fights with Nintendorks – blast processing. The fabled technology allowed Sega Genesis games to run faster than their Super Nintendo counterparts which made games like Sonic the Hedgehog only possible on Sega’s hardware. Now the company is introducing an entirely new brand of processing to breathe new life into its old games.
Sega announced today that it’s bringing high quality 3D surround sound to its classic games through the use of goat processing. With goat processing, Sonic the Hedgehog and other classics will sound like completely new games.
In all seriousness, it’s another April Fools’ Day joke that only was able to elicit a chuckle out of me. Your personal mileage, however, will vary, especially if you have yet to tire of goats yelling like humans.
