Pro Evo Arcade Location Tests

March 5, 2007


Konami is currently trialling an arcade cabinet in the UK based on the hit Pro Evolution Soccer franchise.

The two-player Pro Evolution Soccer Arcade Championship is being tested in two locations in London, with the intention of launching more coin-op units later this year.

The cabinet uses e-Amusement cards, which allow players to save data on pre-paid cards and plug them into any cabinet.

e-Amusement is also an online service, linking all cabinets throughout Europe to a central server and facilitating play between units.

As well as trialling the arcade machines, Konami intends to hold pan-European tournaments after a full roll out in June.

This strictly isn’t arcade related, although it could be scored on Pro Evo Arcade because they are exactly the same game. So here we have it, the best Pro Evo goal I’ve scored and ever likely to score. Enjoy

Konami @ ATEI 2007

January 29, 2007


Konami had a great stand, although that maybe because I’m a big Pro Evo Soccer fan. The arcade version is as solid as the console, but this is my only gripe with game. Why pay to play it it when I can play it on my 360 against my friends online for free. Still, it’s great fun to play. Also on the stand was Crazy Streets, which I’d already seen at the the Trocadero, which is a pretty standard street racing game, but again still good fun to play. Finally Konami had thier range of music based games including BeatMania, Guitar Freaks, and DrumMania which to be honest I was to scared to play because there was a bunch of the hardcore players there. So I was quite happy just to watch them do there thing. I think I got a video of one them on the BeatMania, which I’ll post up soon.
