Star Wars (arcade) was a phenomenal success for Atari. Over 10,000 of the game's upright cabinets were built, alongside 2,540 sit-down cabinets - making it the last of Atari's to crack the 10,000 mark until Area51 12 years later
This was a quote from an interview with Mike Hally who worked on the original Atari Star Wars arcade game. This was many more cabinets than I would have guessed! But it was a very successful game.
What would be average release numbers for an arcade game? and does anyone have any exact figures for the more famous arcade games?
