Update: Super Arcade has received their server testing equipment as well
Received word on twitter yesterday that an arcade in Hawaii has received PC’s for a 1 month test to test the network connection with Japan. Apparently the Namco representative said that the test would be to see if they could sell Tekken Tag Tournament 2 to the USA.
Harada tweeted awhile back that they were planning on a location test for USA in October, so this adds some credibility to the messenger. The fact that its near the end of October and none of our arcades in SoCal have definitively stated that they were getting a location test, it makes this server test even more probable. Maybe this server setup was the first step in having machines coming for a location test in Los Angeles, Texas, New York (these are the places Harada tweeted as possibilities)? Of course, don’t trust everything you hear on twitter right?
But we can always hope! What do you guys think?
