I was expecting 1200-1500$ for softkits and 2500-3000$ for Hardware kits ( for clarification, including a game). I can see myself paying more, but not for mobile game ports.

Anyway, good to see that it is starting :thumbupright:


Everything sold out now. ...

Either way, at $3500, I think I'll take a wait and see approach with this. It'd be easier to justify if I knew more about the lineup post-launch... or hell, even what the basic differences are between the console/PC Strania and the EX version. I'm sure I'll get one eventually, but there's a lotta cooler games I could be buying in the meantime.

At least it is awesome to have the preorders page set up, and that should give great opportunities for organic growth and hype.

I am impressed on the target prices for the products as they are somewhat close to the estimation from the interview article from shmup-em-all:
http://shmupemall.com/interviews/interv ... 19145.html
– At what price do you intend to sell an exA-Arcadia kit? And what about games?

Eric Chung: We have not really announced a price yet, but you can expect one kit, motherboard plus game, to cost around US$2000. And then, depending on the game, around $1000 to $1500. We are still looking into this to see what the price will be. But as you know, a new CAVE shooting game was sold around $1800, so it’s more or less the standard price in Japan.
$2500 for motherboard
$1000 - $1500 for cartridges (only $1200 and $1500 for the launch games at the moment)

I don't know if almost 2x the price is what I'd call impressive. Especially since that's seemingly a discount, and the motherboard + game package will be $4000 normally.

@jan-

You mentioned you're interested in 3 games. ATB presumably. What were the other two?

Thanks!

$3500 just isnt going to fly, no matter how much i like shou and this project you just cant get around that its simply asking too much for too little.

I dont know what the relationship with japanese and chinese (?) operators is like and if there is a market there even at this pricepoint, but i do know that its almost twice what a new Cave title cost and their last titles only seem to have sold in the teens on the private market (matsuris for instance).. now a brand new Cave IP i MIGHT concider it, but for a remixed version of a several year old indie game it just isnt happening, super hydorah is $19 on steam right now.. is the ac version really $3480 better?

^You don't want to spend $3500 to play a $15 mobile/indie game on your cab...
What kinda hardcore arcade gamer are you :lolno:

It's a model that might work for arcades and the odd collector who wants the newest releases.

Cool that it even exists in 2019.

I suspect we'll see new cave IP if their initial exa releases sell well enough.

Akai katana is on nesica .Everywhere in Japan you could find cabinet with nesica and we didn’t see any new CAVE games :awe:
Exa is out of stock .Sold a limited quantity .shou told us it’s a little compagny not like taito or sega ....so
The next cave is deathsmiles on swtich ;)

I hope there will be more exa for sale when aka to blue , akyrios and psyvariar will be available for pre order :( i’m not ready and now it’s too late to spend 3500 $ for mobile ports games....
