    I doubt you'll see the daylight of it over here. It's suppose to be a portable version of the arcade Tretta machine in Japan. :P

    well its actually a different type than the Battrio machines, which is the one they should of gone with as they are more popular than the Tretta machines

    Actually, wouldn't it make more sense to release both, eventually? If Battrio is more popular, why cut into arcade revenues until that's on the way out? This way you maximize cash from both...

    there both very different machines

    Battrio is by
    Takara Tomy/AQ Interactive

    Tretta is by
    Takara Tomy A.R.T.S./Marvelous AQL

    both different companies, Takara Tomy just make the chips and stuff for them
    so its like a competition on who's better

    You misunderstand me: I am suggesting they would port both at some point, but it would make more sense, from a business perspective, to port the less popular one first so you don't cannibalize arcade sales* of the more popular machine--it's neither here nor there which company is producing the chips and/or 'publishing' the arcade game, since Pokemon Co,/Nintendo would handle any/all console publishing duties.

    *It could also be a contractual issue that Nintendo must give them 'x' months of arcade exclusivity, but either way I think you can take it to the bank that they will port Battrio over at some point, especially since you're saying Battrio is more popular.

    I know what you're saying

    not sure how battrio would work in this instance, apart from like a Dex and checklist and mini battles

    Battrio you also have a save key too

    I don't personally see this hitting off as the arcade machines are much better, I guess time will tell.

    this won't get a release outside of Japan though sadly

    I don't see why they don't develop arcade machines like this overseas. People aren't keen on arcades due to a lot of money and you don't get much for it. But if you put in toys/NFC stuff, you could make a killing as people would pay about £2/$3 a go because they got a cool little figure that's collectable and usable at the games when they comeback.

    This looks to be one of those things that will never make it's way out of japan and people won't care too much.

    So Pokemon now endorses animal testing and cockfights? It's the like the designers are doing everything they can to piss PETA off.

    And that is fine in my book. Bravo!

    Neat. That contraption that's hooked up to the 3DS and scans the pucks, is actually a pretty interesting idea. I doubt anywhere other than Japan is going to get it though. Has Battrio even been seen outside of Japan?

    This reminds me of what they are doing with Skylander's Giants. It's basically horrendously overpriced DLC.

    Don't get me wrong, though - the guy who first thought this up is a freaking genius in that they are making one billion trillion dollars off of overpriced action figures. NFC tags cost pretty much nothing.

    Why did they have to make it so, um, non portable?

    They should just have made a small IR device the size of a pokewalker, not this plastic beast of a tumor.
