Namco Bandai adopts Cell for arcades, Tekken 6 to be guinea pig

Twisted Supreme March 27, 2007 0

Not content with just threeSony exclusives, Namco Bandai has announced that the arcade version of Tekken 6 will utilize the Cell processor, making it the first commercial use for Cell outside of the PlayStation 3.

This isn’t the first time that Namco has adopted PlayStation hardware for the arcade as both their System 11 and System 256¬†boards, for example, produced plenty of Playstation-based hits. What remains to be seen, however, is whether or not Namco Bandai will license out this technology for other developers to use. While they have done so in the past, they are currently undecided.

Tekken 6 is still slated for an arcade release later this year with no solid date as of yet.
