Hi All,

Just been discussing this at the IDV4 forum topic, and it was suggested that we should mention it here.

The AM Show report has revealed that a NBG (Namco Bandai Games) executive announced on the stage that Maximum Boost (Tuned) 3 was to be released.

Think it was a 2007 date on first sitings.

Just thought you guys may be interested?

Just been spanked by my Japanese game expert; some corrections:

-The current 'Wangan Midnight : Maximum Tune' to 'Wangan Midnight : Maximum Tune 2 Ver.B' runs on the Sega licensed CHIHIRO architecture.

user posted image

-The announcement at JAMMA was only made to NBG trade and affiliates, and was not offically announced.

-The NBG guys are not 'spoiling' Sega's release of IDV4, but want to point out that their game is coming and will be cheeper (yeah)!!

-NBG has not ruled out a kit...

Well thats me told.

The Stinger will be running the name of the game as 'Wangan Midnight : Maximum Tune 3', and I'am going to take the risk of speculating that the new hardware platform will be the new PC based NBG system (similar to the Taito TypeX2).

Hope this helps,

Dear All,

Just got information about a meeting with NBG (Namco Bandai Group) executives at the Tokyo Game Show.

They were asked if the PS3 launched Maxi. Tune (offically confirmed yesterday) would be similar to the planned arcade release? The source was told that they had no knowledge of a arcade version of Maxi.Tune being developed?

This may not be as earth shattering as it may seem as the consumer developers and amusement developers work in different worlds - but it got me thinking that the JAMMA offical that talked about Maxi.Tune3 may have meant the PS3 version?

Or that NBG are using a PS3 based graphics hardware for the arcade?

More questions than answers... sorry!

This is the PS3 and PSP release preview.

There is a report that there will be three games - the AC, PS3 and PSP titles, with the new feature of being able to share the game stats from the home game on the arcade system (still to be offically confirmed).

The only concern I have is that there is still no test footage or images from the proposed Namco Arcade version!

If any pictures will pass on.

I doubt they would have the cards be able to go from arcade to home.

1) it would be really expensive to have home card readers and printers etc.

2) people would just buy the home version and then play it a ton and not spend any money on the arcade game and it would fail.

The trade event in Japan is tomorrow, but the flyer for the game hit the Asian web:

The System N2 (PC based hardware) has the same paper card system as before though the graphics and the handling have been changed to compete against ID4.

All the best,
