Oh wow! This arcade has some really old arcade machines and games, Like, '80s old! What will happen to these machines once the place close down?

Goes to the auction and ended up in the hand of rich collectors, I guess.

The thought of that makes me cringe. There appears to be the first ever arcade game here.

"Don't worry. There are still 200 SEGA arcade centers in Japan."
What do you mean by former Segabits member? As far as I'm aware we're usually the only two on here.
I mean, I bet there's probably a Discord, Twitter or whatnot Segabits out there but I'm not that savvy for them.

I can't recall if I ever been to Merthyr Tydfil... but if I am ever there again I'll be sure to look for it. They have a Sega Prize Zone.

We are not just members anymore.

We are Statler and Waldorf of this forum.  ;-D
