I think so too, as there is no mention of this anywhere else, and even the mockup is not perfect (there still is other colors than red in the video)

It's up to us to make him do it, now ^^

Hi all,

But there's nothing on the official website.

There is first a mirror, the logo is etched in it and lighted from behind.
Then there is the marquee,a glass panel with the one-way mirror inside.

I have near finished the T-molding but don't have a lot of time to myself these days to the last details.

It is now at home in the gameroom and fully fonctionnal, it lacks just a few hours of work.

I don't have it, but the shipping cost to France would be much more than the game price ^^

Anyway, it's really kind of you to propose.

I don't think so, you will never obtain graphics as it is a lcd display. But it should be possible to extract the few code inside if you manage to create an adaptor... and find how it works !

To drift even further off-topic... I can't wait until someone writes a "Virtuality" emulator for whatever Rift-clone I end up getting I never got to try it back in the day, and then they all but disappeared. Now that there are a few in private hands, my dream of experiencing Atari Jaguar-level graphics in VR form is still alive!


I'm totally with you. Never had a chance to test, I've only seen two units when I was young...

A flashboy is a must have, to try the Hyper Fighting demo.

Oh god please no.


I have the same opinion. Unfortunately, japanese market shows the future of gaming: absolutely *everything* is done via smartphones. Developers don't have to bother with complex development platforms, as smartphones are very generic and a player account can easily be moved from a device to another when the player buys a new phone. Plus, you won't sell a lot of handhelds when another device do the same thing + internet access + calling fonctions for the same quality and price. For now, the lack of physical buttons is the only drawback of smartphones when you are a gamer, but the gameplay is made to comply with tactile screen and casual players. 3DS sells because of dual screen and 3D function (and it's Nintendo).

The games are short and casual, so they don't cost much to develop. See Angry Birds, Candy Crush... little games, big income. Konami has already started to quit, their gym centers and mobile gaming are a lot more profitable than any Kojima production.

The future of gaming is in smartphones. Iwata was agaisnt that way, but now he's gone and Nintendo has started to approach this markey (first app sheduled for march 2016, partnership in Japan with a smartphone developper)

Such devices are now cheaper than handheld consoles.
