House of the Dead 4 Special with Motion Cabinet

According to Kotaku, Sega has released a special motion cabinet version of House of the Dead 4 into Japanese and European arcades. The cabinet has two 100 inch XGA projector screens, as well as a motion cabinet that has a seat which the player belts themselves into. The cabinet swings around and vibrates depending on the action on the screen. A burst of air is blown onto players faces at different intervals in the game as well.

It is like a playable motion ride, reminiscent of Sega’s R630 cabinet, but with less vomiting.

    I am a little confused? This game was launched 2006, we ran a feature as far back as 2005 on this and the Lost World Special system it is based on.

    Now that some sites are covering arcade again are we about to see reverse reporting of old news?

    I would be cruel and suggest they get a Stinger subscription!!

    Thankfully we have Arcade Heroes.

    I was going to say the same thing. I saw this thing a long time ago (about Kotaku reporting it). In fact BMI Gaming has had the thing up there for about $153,000 for a long time now.

    The game is already out in the end of 2006, tested on Tokyo Sega Joypolis. It is House of the Dead 4 Special.
    Let’s go Jungle special have the same system.

    Either way I’d love to play this game. There is a video of it on Sega UKs page and it looks like a ton of fun. Includes air blasting and the swivel chair will sometimes not spin all the way around but sideways. Pretty cool.

    Have noticed this before with other games sites, bringing up arcade news that is actually old news.
