- As expected Sega brought out their much-talked about game, Transformers: Human Alliance, and to help them promote the game was a four foot Bumblebee! Sega also brought their hugely popular Photobooth machine, along with an Austin Powers impersonator.
- Namco was also, very much as expected with one previously unconfirmed exception - they brought along Deadstorm Pirates Special Edition! Unfortunately no picture of that one yet, but hoping to see one soon, but it is there, so if you haven't checked it out yet you should head on over to the Namco booth and do just that. Namco also brought the new Batman, which looks amazing, the cabinet seems to be very popular at the show, as well as Aliens Armageddon, Mario Kart GP DX, the Pac-man line up and Animal Kaiser 2 (you can see part of the SPECIAL EDITION Dead storm Pirates cabinet in the back of this photo [below]).
Also, spotted on the floor was a motion simulation drive machine, in which the seat moves and players face a domed screen. The seat moves as the car travels on the track, to really immerse players. Still looking for a title and company for this machine.
There was also some new dance/music arcade machines out on the floor to get the movers and shakers excited:
- Andamiro brought Pump Zero out to play. The custom cabinet looks fantastic with it's bright orange decor and sleek cabinet.
- Step Evolution LLC is showcasing ReRave +, the latest in the series. The cabinet is very nice, metal tones, sleek lines and lots of LED lighting, so it really stands out on an arcade floor.
