If you’re not up to date when it comes to tech brand web3-infested anime, you should probably save yourself and close this tab for now. XPG just dug its NFT hole a little deeper at CES 2023 with a full PC setup based on the main character of its own terrible anime.
A while ago, Adata’s subsidiary brand came out with Xtreme Saga. It is a story of a strong female protagonist who kicks ass and preaches about hope, justice, leadership and empathy. While that may sound epic, the concept unfortunately never materialized.
That’s not just because the company doesn’t seem to be aware that anime is short for “animation,” something that doesn’t seem to translate from the janky slideshow that is Xtreme Saga (see video below). What’s worse is that the show is a cover for XPG’s web3 antics.
His goal? To shill NFTs (opens in new tab)naturally.
And even as the XPG Xtreme Saga Fan Club’s Ether value (opens in new tab) sits at just $8,760, with only 581 owned, the company decided to go ahead and release a full PC configuration, including peripherals, mouse pad, and even a PC case designed around the main character, Mera.
Here’s what XPG showed off at CES 2023:
- Valor Air chassis
- Precog S headset
- Slingshot gaming mouse
- Mage gaming keyboard
- Battlefield L mouse pad
Some of the features mentioned include a “flashy design”, “optimum size”, and “red mechanical” key switches. The designs are also plastered with the same signature orange-red color as Mera’s hair. Fiery.
I’m so sorry for the performers who got sucked into this farce – hope you’re well paid because I almost had to see the first episode of Xtreme Saga hand in my weeb badge (opens in new tab).
It might as well have been a Manga, honestly.
But enough about the horrible anime facade. The real pro is that the gear isn’t redesigned at all, except for the mousepad it’s just kind of… old stuff colored red. I have no idea how to unsubscribe this. I’m too busy washing my eyes with soap.
