Vending Times has reported on the third iteration of Sega's Transformers: Human Alliance
arcade cabinet. An arcade-style lightgun shooter, this new "Super Deluxe" version of the cabinet sports an 80-inch screen and mounted lightguns with recoil action. Said to be "about the size of a kid's bedroom," it should be pretty easy to tell if the version you see is the Super Deluxe. Keep reading for more details and a link!
CHESSINGTON, England -- Sega Amusements International has unveiled a third implementation of its Transformers-Human Alliance videogame. Called Transformers Super Deluxe, the new model is equipped with an 80" panoramic monitor and surround-sound audio. It joins the 42" deluxe and 55" theater configurations that made their debut at last year's IAAPA Attractions Expo.
All three videogame versions challenge players to team up with a leader of the virtuous transformer Autobots -- Optimus Prime, Bumblebee or Sideswipe -- and campaign across America, Africa and Europe, destroying the evil Decepticon invaders. Sega says the new deluxe package may be the largest two-player videogame in today's market.
In addition to the immersive 80" monitor and subwoofer-enhanced surround-sound system, Transformer Super Deluxe features cabinet-mounted blasters to reduce accidental damage (they can't be dropped to the floor); the blasters' kinetic simulated recoil action contributes to the realism. The "open-air monitor" cabinet design calls attention to the onscreen action and attracts guests from across the room, Sega observed. And there are five game levels to explore, which encourages repeat patronage. "Players will want to keep playing to see how this story ends," Williams said. And the "humongous footprint – about the size of a kid's bedroom" makes the game impossible to overlook.
