We reported a little while ago that one new title that would be seen at the recently passed AMOA 2009 show in Las Vegas was Sega’s new foray into coin-op card gaming, Sega Card Gen. But until now, we have not seen any useful pictures from the show but thanks to a link posted on AM-Net, we finally have a decent look at the game. In case you missed the news on this one, Sega Card Gen makes use of specialized baseball cards which are dispensed by the machine and then can be used by the player to play through a little game of touchscreen baseball. One reason why this is coming through a Japanese site is because it was recently announced that Sega is currently location testing this game in Japan and there has been a little bit of excitement regarding the matter on Japanese arcade sites. The game had seen some testing at the Gameworks in Chicago, IL, which you can hear more about on our most recent podcast. Probably one of the nicer things about this title is that it’s something different and Sega’s revelation on this one has already caused one company to import a card-playing arcade title of their own to the US.

As for Twisted, the new racer by GlobalVR, the one pictured above is the mini-motion configuration, which has now appeared on some arcade distributor websites with a price around $10k (the standard 32″ version going for about $6k)
