North America

Listed are titles which are receiving “official” distribution or manufacturing in the Western Hemisphere. Imports might occur from Asia but that is a difficult thing to track and not technically considered “released to distribution” for the territory.

*‘ indicate kits – Released as a hardware or software-only package for the upgrade of an existing cabinet to a new game.

Ӕ indicates that the game is Arcade Exclusive (I don’t use it for pinball since that is assumed with the territory)

Europe

Europe tends to reflect the same list as the USA but there can be some differences that pop-up every once in a while. Europe can be somewhat complicated as to which games are available in certain countries as each country has different laws & regulations regarding the sales & importation of arcade machines into their regions. The UK often has most of the newest releasing thanks to the majority of European manufacturers & distributors being based there.

Videmption

This section is for games that look like video games but their main purpose in life is to be played to win tickets.
