    At the moment no. I'm gonna go and scout out London tomorrow so I'll give you an update. The only place I've played it so far is Queensway.

    Maybe Goodge St. will get it soon. And judging from their pricing of other games I wouldn't be surprised if they set it to 3 plays per pound. The only other arcades I'm aware of that may price it fairly when they get it include the Namco Station in Westminster and the Play2Win on Oxford St.

    In the case of the former they even have a token system in place but I'm not sure if they'd apply it to new releases.

    We live in hope, good luck

    Well I've had a look around and there's no VF4 in any other arcade except the one in Queeensway.

    Spoke to a tech over at Funland and he wasn't sure when they'd get it. He thinks it'll be a while after the general release. Also it seems as if they might re-use some of the old cabinets rather than buy in a slew of new ones. One thing he did seem more or less certain about was that they would have more than one machine.

    Goodge St. seemed a bit dead. I mean they haven't even brought in Virtua Striker 3 despite having posters about the game near the entrance a while ago. Plenty of other arcades in London now have the game. I'm beginnig to wonder if the cost of Naomi 2 hardware may deter smaller centres like Casino. They never actually bought in a VF3 despite pleadings from the hardcore London community. So I guess anything is possible regarding VF4.

    Play2Win, again, nothing new here today. Namco Station is a bit out of the way and it's getting late so I won't make it there. Any way they'll probably show off Tekken 4 first.

    I'll check again next week and report back.

    Good Luck.
