Preview 2008 space running out

June 30, 2007

Space at Preview 2008 is running out, with organisers Howard & Wikberg inundated with requests for larger stands, with some companies increasing their presence at the show by up to five times.

In the Champagne Suite the most obvious changes to visitors will be that Crown Direct has combined stands CH14 and CH15 to create the largest ever stand at Preview. Astra Games has doubled the size of its stand and now occupies CH2 and CH3. United Distributing Company has increased their stand size, and others such as Brent Electronic have moved from the Entrance Hall to a new larger stand, CH17, inside the Champagne Suite.

There will also been significant changes in the Chablis Suite. Hamayoon Amusements has moved from NT55 to NT50, effectively increasing its area by five times. Hazel Electronics has doubled its stand size, and Playsafe Monitoring has moved from NT36 to NT58. Reflex Gaming has chosen a significantly larger space to showcase its latest products.

Preview 2008 will be packed with the latest products from the best manufacturers and distributors the coin-op industry has to offer. It will take place from the 10-11th of October, at Novotel London West. The official site can be found here

More King Of Fighters MIA videos

June 30, 2007

Two new videos are available through the official KOFMIA site this time showcasing a fight between Ninon and B. Jenet and between Mignon and a character whose name I can’t read as the video is compressed too much. I admit that I’m not up to speed on all of my King Of Fighters characters nor games (although I do own KOF ’98 which is an excellent game) but you’ll be able to see who it is for yourself.

One thing that these videos show is that KOFMIA seems to be taking a page from DOA as far as the ladies go. I’m not sure if that is common with the other 3D KOF games but it’s pretty obvious in these videos as they contain a little bit of ‘bouncing’ in them. I suppose it always had that with Mai though…
