Mr. Morris Not behind internet hoax

The Sega fan site SegaBits has recently directed an internet hoax called “Project Dream” in the direction of 40 year industry veteran Mr. Zachary Morris.

“Update: So after a bit of internet sleuthing and comments from those who have dealt with SEGA home console conspiracy artists in the past, all of this very well may be the work of the infamous Zach Morris. Mr. Morris, or whatever his name is, has been up to this sort of nonsense since 2003″ 

Segabits

We can officially confirm that the venerable Mr. Morris only reports on the truth and is in no way affiliated with “Project Dream”.
