After all that, you’d expect some sort of new hardware, right?

Well, 17:30 hit and this was the “big move” …

It’s a freakin online game!

And this makes no sense, either, because prior to 17:30, it was being hyped.

That’s just one of several pre-17:30 Weibos hyping the game. So WTF?

(As an aside, it sure looks damn good casted to the 4K Mi TV from that small phone!)

And no, I have no idea if this is any kind of significant announcement in the world of games. I don’t play games and have just about zero knowledge on the subject.

I have to hand it to Xiaomi for knowing how to hype. But with announcement after announcement, they’re beginning to be like the boy who cried “Wolf!”
