Disney's 3D Ping Pong as seen at GTI Expo + a few more GTI pics

May 15, 2010

I know you are possibly sick of hearing about GTI by now but new things are trickling out that are noteworthy enough, so let’s get on with it! Thanks to Joe for the link to this collection of photos by David Liu. I’ll start out with commenting on the photo above – Disney’s 3D Ping Pong. We’ve talked about it before – it’s an official Disney product and it uses stereoscopic 3D TV’s that don’t need glasses. Interesting how on film the images are very dark. This one is supposed to be available next Thursday, should be interesting to see how it’s received. With Disney dabbling not only into 3D like this in the gaming world but also the coin-op arcade sector, could we possibly see a Tron arcade game coming out along with the movie? That might be a long shot but if they are serious about coin-op with this game then why not?

There are a few more pics from GTI, hit the break to check them out.

Arcade Heroes Podcast #14 : Arcade shows, game news and more with Kevin Williams

May 15, 2010

We haven’t forgot about the podcast although I admit to slacking on it lately. It didn’t help that we had to start over on this one due to the program I was using to record it being shutdown by someone else towards the end of our attempt and the recording being lost. But we tried it again and here we have Podcast #14. At this point, Kevin and I will do a podcast about once a month, unless there is so much news out that it warrants two.

This time we discuss:

-DEAL and GTI 2010 shows along with the 3D gaming trend that is starting to poke it’s head out there

-Gameworks update as it appears that the Reuters article got it wrong and Gameworks is doing a lousy job at message control (I.e. – several Gameworks locations to remain open)

-Other arcade openings around the world and company earnings discussion

-Talk about upcoming fighters, developments in music gaming, other new game releases

-And a little more
