A look back at Preview ’04

It is interesting to take a look back at earlier arcade events and see what has changed and what has stayed the same. Via Kevin Williams of the Stinger Report, he points out an article written about the London Preview ’04 and it is quite interesting to see how much has actually stayed the same – most games coming out are still focusing on what’s safe and guaranteed as opposed to new ideas although it was good to see a few new twists on old ideas this year that appear as though they may increase interest in arcade gaming. The Preview 04 featured the new Atomiswave system which many had hoped would have provided a new system like the NeoGeo MVS or Naomi but never enjoyed the same level of support as those previous systems.
