It was already said when the game was only announced on PS2, but a Namco representative officially stated Calibur 3 would not be released in the arcades, even in Japan. With the success of Tekken 5, it's quite a surprise.
Also, source, stuff on Mario Kart and Cobra the arcade, and something on the ex-leader of the Morning Musume.

No arcade and no netplay...

Looks like they can save some time trying to balance the game, then.

Sounds to me like Calibur 3 is going to be a quick, last major generation title before the PS3.

Well, how was the sales of arcade Tekken 5 machines in the US? I don't recall ever seeing a Tekken 5 machine anywhere. Remember that the US market is big, and that probably affected their decision.

I don't give a shit for Calibur series, but even if I did, I think you shouldn't worry about the game, as long as it is released...This just could state that arcade machines are getting less important each year, even in Japan. We should face it, Arcades will soon be an extinct concept of entertaining...

I have seen a T5 machine and my major arcade is actually closed. I never thought the game would be that rare.

Yeah, we've got at least three machines here in San Antonio that I know of, possibly more.

Oh, and Soul Archive has been updated, with new movies and settei for the 3 new characters.
I like the movies of the motion capture.

Is there, now? Where? The only arcade I really go to is Diversions on San Pedro and I've never seen it there. I thought if there was a new game, then it would at least be there.

2 that I know of for certian are CyberZone Ingram, and Malibu Castle.. I've played at both, my ghost data is on there as HayakawaKen, so if you play him, you'll realize I'm lousy and should quit the game immediately. :P no but seriously, those are 2 places that have it, and the card reader active as well. A bit pricey to play at $1 a pop, and $6 for an IC card. CZ does offer a nice large Tekken 5 poster if it suits your fancy if you spend $10....

SP Diversions? We've had to have run into each other at some point.. usually I and Hikarutilmitt go just so we can play Raiden Fighters 2 and Strikers... I play DDR and Bemani on occasion as well..

Rivercenter has one too, apparently. Some of the guys I tried to play VF with a while back went there to play.

The Tekken 5 Arcade in Chinatown Fair, CTF in New York City is always crowded and even connects to PS2 joysticks so people bring them to play the game. Don't know if this is normal for Tekken Arcades connecting to PS2 joysticks or if all Tekken 5 Arcades do this but it is a really cool feature. Not that I'll ever play a fighting game without an arcade stick even at home but you gotta love the inovation. Finally, people who are more used to handheld joysticks can hang in the arcades.

Aside from the usual music/rhythm game draws, Tekken 5 is pretty much the hottest thing on the block in the arcades right now, and has been since release.

All Tekken 5 machines come with PS2 controller ports. A good many professed pad players can finally show their stuff... while I sneakily bring in my custom pad that has an EWGF button...

There are a few in the casino arcades here in vegas. It's a very popular game, but SC2 is still beating it in terms of popularity. It's a shame there wont be a 3rd SC arcade game, especially with innovations in the last one being a big moneymaing draw. Conquest mode was very popular at my old college.
