While arcades in the US with some of the most desired fighters in one place might be rare, they are out there. Kevin Williams of The Stinger Report stopped by an arcade in New York that has Street Fighter IV and Tekken 6 along with a number of other games. Called the Chinatown Fair (thanks for fubarduck in the comments for clearing that up), they have four SFIV cabinets on location, all of which appear to be homebrew cabinets although they don’t look bad. It looks like they did the same thing with Tekken 6 and we are also told that they have a BlazBlue cabinet there to boot. Click on the thumbnails below to get a full view

That arcade is actually called “Chinatown Fair” (aka CF) and has been a well-known hotspot for fighting games since the 90’s. They have had SF4 since the game came out. They also have BlazBlue now.
and apparently theres this guy named fubarduck that owns a popular SF4 arcade out in texas =p
and 5 more in southern california…
Man I see a Time Crisis 4 cabinet on the side there… I miss my arcade…
If I wasn’t so broke at the moment I’d be there every other day. Cool place.
