I’ve lurked these forums for 5 years and attended every EVO while living here in Vegas. I’ve collected about 20 classic cabs with the intent of opening up an arcade in Las Vegas, similar to what’s in Portland and Brooklyn. Start up cost is around $500K and I’ve got about $120K of my own money to make this happen.
So I need your help. To close the deal I need to prove there’s a market. Pictures and videos from EVO were helpful. But to some investors, its still too small a niche. So, I’ve put up a Facebook account that I’m asking the SRK community to ‘like’.
The more chatter on the site, the more fans of the concept of INSERT COIN, the more likely it becomes a reality. In the meantime, I’m still constructing the insertcoinbarcade.com website. When that’s up and running, I’ll update you. My goal is to have a venue in Vegas that can support the fighting game community and preserve the classics we’ve grown to love. 60 classic cabs, 10 pinball machines, Xbox 360s and PS3s running on plasmas, Dreamcasts, PSOnes, SNES, Genesis, etc available for free play, DJs, food and drink. One more spot to check out when you come to Vegas.
Thanks to all the guys who continue to support the arcades. Thanks again for taking the time to read! And thanks a thousand times over if you support our cause!
