Namco issues a player card warning for MaxiTune 3 DX+ games

April 19, 2010

If you have a player card for Namco’s Maximum Tune 3 DX Plus along with a player card then it seems that a temporary issue is causing a little havoc with certain cards. According to this site who posted the warning:

Namco have released a statement warning Maximum Tune 3 players not to insert their used player cards into Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3 DX Plus machines. If a player tries to use their used card to create a new card, the new player card will also be printed as ‘USED’ and the player data will become invalid and unable to be used.

A player card will become used if the data has already been transferred over to a new card or it has expired. Used cards can be easily identified by the word ‘USED’ at the top of the card.

Namco are currently investigating the cause of this problem and will release a countermeasure as soon as possible. As a precaution, the factory has prepared an announcement sheet to be displayed next to the machines.

If you are currently operating Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3 DX Plus machines, please contact our sales staff for a copy of this announcement sheet.

Hopefully any operators will quickly jump on posting the warning as well as the fix once it becomes available. We are a little slow on finding the news admittedly as it was posted on March 31st but so far there is no news on a fix, I can’t imagine that it will take much longer for them to solve.

Namco has revealed some of the content that they will be showing off at AOU, which includes a new Gundam VS. title and Midnight Maximum Tune 3 DX + (which I am pretty sure we have heard of before). Games we have seen/played previously which will also be at the show include Dead Storm Pirates and Tank! Tank! Tank!; no word on if Go Go Grand Prix will be making an appearance or not but that is one game I am looking forward to seeing mroe of (it will be at the Amusement Expo in Vegas next month).
