I didn't reckon that a thread for this would have legs, so into this thread goes the news about the Capcom Home Arcade.

It looks... odd.

Here's your line-up of games too.

1944: The Loop Master
Alien vs. Predator
Armored Warriors
Capcom Sports Club
Captain Commando
Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness
Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors
Eco Fighters
Final Fight
Ghouls’n Ghosts
Giga Wing
Mega Man: The Power Battle
Progear
Street Fighter™ II: Hyper Fighting
Strider
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo


Seems like it's going to be geared towards two player play, what with the second stick latches onto the machine and all along with the fighters and multiplayer titles stacked onto the console. Thoughts, folks?

It's about £180 too much

It looks kinda cool and is a neat idea but doesn't have that many games on it and is €230 which is way too much.

DP but a different subject as Konami Boo have announced the Castlevania Collection line up (the one I care about)

Castlevania (1987, NES), Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest (1988, NES), Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse (1990, NES), Kid Dracula (1990, NES)
Castlevania: The Adventure (1989, Game Boy), Castlevania II: Belmont’s Revenge (1991, Game Boy)
Super Castlevania IV (1991, SNES)
Castlevania Bloodlines (1994, Mega Drive)

Looks a good set and the arcade one came out today and is £16 on XBL at least

I'm excited for that, unlike the Arcade Classics Anniversary Collection that Konami released today - it's mostly just a load of random shooters bunged together there.

Cadtlevania: The Adventure is honking. It might be the worst game in any big time gaming franchise, it's utterly, utterly keech.

That Capcom home arcade is definitely aimed a certain type of audience, I also find it odd that while most devs are releasing more affordable mini systems they go the complete opposite way with theirs. Laughing

Anyhow, I would like to try some of those games on it but it's too much of a luxury item for me, though I did see some good suggestions on twitter where they could just take some of the games from it & update the Beat em up bundle.
