Welcome to another thrilling edition of Newsbytes, a collection of news items from the arcade and pinball world.

Here’s a kind of post that we haven’t seen in a loooong while, and to be honest, I wasn’t sure if there would be another “Location Watch” post for the rest of the year. Fortunately, that assumption is wrong, as there are new locations out there to highlight. It has become a little bit of [...]

Growing up in the ’80s, monster trucks were enjoying their heyday. Even though I never had the pleasure of witnessing a monster truck car crushing event, I knew about the Bigfoot truck. It was just one of those things that you somehow learned about, probably through toy commercials on TV and hype generated through your [...]

As we enter into what feels like the 4th century of the pandemic (it’s weird how 6-7 months can seem like an eternity), arcade manufacturers are starting to push forward as best they can. For some, that has meant exploring the world of home arcades. For others like Touch Magix, it means that certain games [...]

Arcade news is starting to tick up once again, but I have been sidetracked on covering all of it as I’ve been working on getting my second arcade location ready to open by October 1st. Along those lines, it looks like there are enough new location stories to warrant another Location Watch post, so stay [...]

By |2020-09-19T23:14:08+01:00September 19th, 2020|Arcade Game News|Comments Off on ICE Launches New Home-Focused Arcade Product Line, ARCADE PRO

[I meant to post this much earlier, but working on my second location got a bit ahead of me today] It’s an age of change and adaptation, which has been a concern for companies normally focused on Out-of-Home Entertainment products. Many arcades are still closed in many areas, despite the easing of most restrictions in [...]

All of the arcade news this week is revolving around tradeshow events, as it ’tis the season for such things – in a normal year. Most everyone has gone virtual to adapt with the needs of the times, and this news is no exception. Universal Space, better known as UNIS, has issued a press release [...]

We’re in the age of non-physical, totally virtual tradeshow events – whether or not that will continue on into 2021 remains to be seen, but it’s the reality for most events right now. Normally around this time of year, the industry would be holding the AAMA Gala in the Chicago area. This is always a [...]

After the recent cancellation of IAAPA 2020, it was seemingly like there would be no physical trade show for our industry for the remainder of the year. Turns out that assumption was wrong, as “Game Time International” (GTI) went ahead and held their expo in Guangzhou this past week from the 9th-11th. While I did [...]
