The UK had ATEI, Japan had AOU and now the US is going to have ASI. Known as the Amusement Showcase International, ASI is held every year in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA and in addition to lectures for operators to help them improve their business, we’ll also get to see the latest arcade titles that are already on the scene or will be headed to the scene later this year. You might have noticed that over the past few days we’ve seen more announcements of new games coming along and a lot of that has to do with publishers gearing up for the show.
As a reminder for anyone interested in going, this Saturday the show will open to the public for four hours so everyone can get a chance to come in and check out the new games. They also will be holding two big tournaments “one for the public and one for celebrities – and a raffle benefiting the American Amusement Machine Charitable Foundation, for six unbelievable prizes, including the iPhone, a Panasonic Wireless Home Theater System and Global VR’s EA Sports™ Nascar® Racing game.”
I only live about 7 hours away from Vegas by car but unfortunately I won’t be able to make it this year due to certain financial circumstances. But that won’t stop us from reporting any news that we come across that spills out of the show so stay tuned as the week progresses.
