I was skeptical when I first heard of this, and still am, but I'm pretty sure it's ITG3.

The new cabinet is even more ridiculous than before though.  The new Pump It Up cabinets are at least lighter than the old ones, even though they also look like someone took a night club and condensed it into a large cabinet.  This thing looks like it weighs around 600 lbs and you'll need a large loading bay in order to get one into a building.  I think a lot of arcades will NOT buy this simply because of the size and weight of the cabinet.  I certainly don't expect to see this at any of my favourite arcades any time soon.


Just read the thing on adjusted difficulties.  Wut da dix.  That's going to cause so many issues for old players.  They should have just increased the cap difficulty to 13 and used the same ratings for everything except the flashing 10's. (LoM - 11, PSMO - 11, FAXXO - 12, HdVO - 12, FELM/O - 12, etc)

Why the hell did they switch to Pump It Up difficulty rating?  20-point scales SUCK.  Now I can suddenly AAA 12's when I used to get B's and C's on 11's just a couple days ago.  WTF.  I'm going to have to go out on a limb and say this game is already DOA.

What the poop is this?

Why do they screw with DDR D: WHY?!
I'll give it a shot but I think it looks friggin' weird right now. And the logo makes me want to barf up some gangsters.

Likewise on the logo.  I also HATE HATE HATE the new scoring system.  AWFUL.  Why can't they just stick with DP?  Or EX?

*drool* that machine looks so totally orgasmic! Bet it wont hit the US for another 5 years *tear* If it already has, then no arcade will be able to afford it for another 15.... I mean, if Chuck E. Cheeses in Portland and the arcade in Seaside still have the first console, what's that tell ya?

The arcade in Seaside has ITG2; it's not a matter of not being able to afford it; they just have no reason to buy the newer games when everyone just plays the ITG2 machine anyway.

As for Chuck E. Cheese's, we have one of the worst in the nation - most have Pump It Up NX, ITG2, or a decent version of DDR.  The CEC's in Portland is just crap in general.

These cabinets shouldn't be that expensive unless Betson decides to charge way too much for them.  $15k was way too much for DDRSN cabinets when they were new; SN2 only costs $11k new by comparison.  The lights don't cost a lot.  The upgrade to flatscreens may add another $400 to the cost, but the cabinets should be available in November or December for around $12k. (not that they're worth that, when an Extreme costs $6k.)
