Not as an amusement-only title, but as what I like to call "videmption" (for "video redemption"). The official name is Centipede Chaos. That all said, there is a good chance that this has a amusement-only/no tickets mode (like Galaga Assault and Space Invaders Frenzy have), although most locations that will grab it probably won't set it up like that. 

 

Chances are I'll have some hands-on time with this in Vegas in a couple of weeks, assuming it appears at a trade show there. If so, I'll be sure to get them to show me what the amusement mode is like, if it's there.

Interesting they are using joysticks in a modern arcade game that is recreating a game that didn't use joysticks.  That is rich.  Oh well at this point I will take what I can get it is worth a play or two if I ever find it.

Purity and accuracy and originality are all gonna be lost on today's audience. Besides the same'ol same'ol has been done 50 times before. There are many other avenues if you wanna play that way - the 80's original experience.

I really do enjoy your modern-arcade-insider posts, please do keep'em up :)

 

Could you explain what is this video-redemption trend I see mentioned, and what all the different modes are (ticketless etc)? It's all greek to me since I don't think I have ever been in a modern arcade (I don't mean barcade).
