One game I have really been wanting to see in action from the recent JAMMA trade show would be Sega’s new Heat Up Hockey. Fortunately after a short wait, we have some videos of the game to witness. Enjoy
This game will be released overseas but in extremely limited quantities. With a price tag of around $20,000 (not including shipping or taxes) very few venues would have that sort of capital to spend on a single game, even though it is an innovative one.
Are you certain there’s no force feedback in the paddles?
After watching it again, I was wrong, there is a real puck. I am pretty excited for this game, if it doesn’t cost a bajillion dollars I’ll get one for my arcade.
Yeah, looks like fun if it doesn’t give your customers a seizure 😉
If they can make it that far into the store without having a seizure then they should be ok 😛
I think it’s neat, but it’s also supreme overkill for air hockey. It would have been cooler if they had implemented “power ups” or bonus multipliers for bank shots off of the walls.
It’s def. going to cost at least $30,000.
Arcanoids(sp) on the projected playerscape! is it so difficult?
check out this $200,000 pool table.
I just barely checked this out and wow. I don’t see why it has to cost that much but by all appearances we are going to start seeing this stuff pop up all the time now.
i agree with neil, it seems to be way too much for air hockey. i could barely follow the puck in the video, but it looks pretty wild.
I personally would want to see this in person rather than on a video as its not the same thing filming a screen and sega new game in particular. I hope it gets a world release.
One thing that would probably help is if they made the puck fluorescent and then install a black light to light it up.
But as you say, it might be a lot easier to follow in person than on the video.
