IDAS4 has been released in Hong Kong with a few set backs. First the average price dropped from HK$10 to HK$7, and then it was discovered that cards cannot be renewed outside of Japan as of now.

cuz we could have gotten them at the beginning of march, but the popuarlity of it in japan made the boss at the arcade worry about the profit he was gonna make...

Popularity? I only know of 3 arcades in HK that have the twin cabs. One at Goldstar, one near CKF's home and the other near HKS's home.

The price of the thing is putting all veterans off over here abd won't be playing it until the price has dropped a bit more. It's only n00bs and old middle aged dirty people like I who are hogging it day and night.

perhaps you should visit www.xe.com because only one country in the world uses the united states dollar, and that country is the united states.

$10 HK = $1.2 USD
$10 HK = $1.4 CAD
and for us australians $10 HK = $1.5 AUD which is cheaper than the adverage price of a english v3 machine which is usually $2 AUD

I still miss the days of the US$2 a pop on V3. Maybe I'll be able to try it again when I return to the UK for a brief spell in the Summer XD

$10 is just a dream come true... 6 machines in the whole of Hong Kong and no lines XDDDD

Well it will be a big flop here in Hong Kong.... for one reason I just found out... OMG OMG!!! I can't renew my card >.<

The network signal isn't strong enough to connect to the Japanese servers and so my card is useless!!!!!

Either I go to Japan and renew it or HK is screwed.

Thats the drawback from importing machines dedicated to the Japanese markets. Until official cabs are available for HK, I don't think ID4 will be mainstream. For now, this problem will kill off any hopes of it being a big hit. Oh well... at least you all know.

OUT OF JAPAN, YOU CANNOT RENEW YOUR CARD. There!

No more it isn't... after 2 days in HK, they dropped the price down to HK$7 a credit and $35 a card.

The sad thing is that previously they allowed for $5 coins (insert 2 for a credit) but now that it's $7 a pop, you don't need to be a genius to work out that now you have to put in $1 coins... guess what? the card requires 35 $1 coins as well. >.<
