March 26, 2007 - Remember that PlayStation 3 arcade board that debuted last month at the AOU arcade expo in Japan? Bandai Namco has finally gotten around to formally announcing the board.
According to a report from Nikkei, the new board is being developed with the cooperation of Sony Computer Entertainment. As it did with its PS2-based “System” series boards, Bandai Namco plans on selling this new board to other developers once development is complete. The PS2-based boards were used by such big arcade players as Sega and Konami.
Today’s announcement still leaves us in the dark about the board’s name and exact specifications. We’ll let you know if we hear anything.
