I should finally go back and finish this. I think I got to stage.. 6.. 7.. 8, maybe?

Ah, thanks for all the info. That helps me understand better than I did before.

Some thick sunglasses and a tin cup, if you don't do it right. Honestly, knowledge of how to start is a lot more important than money, but I wouldn't do it without a very thick comfort cushion, say at least $100,000. New games carry a profit margin of about 15-20% unless you find a reliable closeou...

You mean like the 3DO vs Jag? :roll: Hahaha, yes, that would work perfectly! Jaguar fanboys tend to become the most heated of them all when their beloved console is challenged.. :twisted: Or 3DOKid could pretend to be a PlayStation fanboy on a Nintendo forum.. That would work wonders, too. :lol:

Just out of curiosity, what did it originally take to start up said-videogame store (inventory and finacially speaking, anyway)?

I suppose the easiest way would be to march into an unknown forum and start a flame war about how "x system is better than y system".

Wouldn't be a bad idea to see how quickly you can get yourself banned at another site. That in itself would be entertaining. :lol:

What makes a FMV game? That's a tricky one that I guess we can only speculate. I think my definition of a FMV game goes along the lines of video that is constantly streamed, to flow like a film of sorts, that also occasionally gives the player input to change the direction of said film/video. Most o...

With the JAMMA standard, you can plug it into a JAMMA compatible arcade cab, or buy a SuperGun (or something of the sort) to play it...

Nope.

Yeah.. the 3DO version is pretty bad.. Not as bad framerate-wise as the Saturn version, and at least you can shrink the screen size down to get it to run smoother.
