Randy Fromm's Monitor Repair videos

November 14, 2007

If you plan on working on an arcade monitor anytime in the future then you really need to watch these videos by the master of arcade repair, Randy Fromm. There are 9 videos total although they are not numbered in any order so you just have to check out each one to see what tips it offers. The only other place to get these videos is on Randy Fromm’s DVDs so it’s nice to have these available for everyone to see. Per Randy’s comment below, these are not the same as what you can get on the DVDs – the DVDs would be even more :) Sorry about the mistake!

Capcom strengthing focus on it's arcade locations – games next?

November 14, 2007

[Via NEXT Generation]

A couple of large game companies own and operate their own arcades, in Japan and elsewhere. Some prime examples are Namco and Sega and while it has far fewer locations, even Capcom has some arcades of their own. According to NEXT Generation, Capcom is going to restructure its arcades by closing three unprofitable centers and open eight larger ones in a hope to maximize their profitablitiy by March 2009. This is further evidence of arcades becoming not only profitable again but being far from dead. Of course these are Japanese arcades but perhaps with Capcom showing renewed interest in their arcade locations and with Basara X and Street Fighter IV on the horizon, perhaps 2008 will see a few more announcements from Capcom regarding even more arcade titles.
