Game Star Arcade located in Tustin, CA is a new place that just opened recently. It’s kind of like Howie’s Game Shack but at a smaller scale.
**What they have: **
[About 10 set ups] Consoles (they have PS3, Xbox & Wii), Gaming chairs (X-Rocker Pro Gaming Chairs), and HDTVs (most likely not lagless but probably only about 3-4 frame lag, not really noticable).
SSF4 (Mostly PS3 copies), Tekken 6, MW2, Halo 3, TvC and games like that. (Paul mentioned he’ll get more copies of SSF4 if needed for like 360)
Tekken Hori sticks and SF4 MadCatz TE Fightsticks to loan out while you play.
There are NO PCS!!! Only Consoles!!
