Taito Hikes Arcade Prices


Citing today’s changing market, video game company Taito has opted to “adjust” the prices of all games installed in their chain of Japanese game centers (known as Taito Station).

This price change affects all fighting, prize grabber and medal games.


The increase will no doubt be difficult for customers to accept, especially considering the added nuisance of having to cough up exactly 120 yen per play.


Across the board it appears to be 20%, so presumably they are either in desperate need of revenues, or are confident their customers will bear the price rises more than they flee the centers.
