They won't go into production unless they get a decent amount of preorders by July 7th. I'll be surprised if this actually pans out.

Do "the masses" in Japan actually own cabs?  At least in the West we have no choice.

I'm guessing it's going to be console plug and play, but what's the point?

Taito were selling these new a month or so ago for 380,000 yen. Afaik it's back up to 480k again. If hori charged 300k I could see the reasoning.

Nope, it's a regular cab just wired for PCBs.

Maybe the RS New Delta is better...and it's easily rotatable!

I'll give 'em props for trying to close the gap between arcade operators and "power" consumers.
