Would You Play Kinect Games In The Arcade?

The Game Gate VU is an arcade cabinet that houses an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 - a coin-op kiosk, more or less, with some other features. It's now been outfitted for Kinect. Anybody seen one of these yet?

BMI Gaming, a heavyweight distributor of arcade machines, lists the unit for $4,875 - with a $10 per month licensing fee unless someone's buying it as a free-play machine. Multiple units can be connected via LAN for multiplayer gaming.

Extravagant, sure. Maybe not the kind of thing you'd find down at your local arcade, should one still exist. I could see this sort of thing in Vegas, though.

I've been waiting for a good game to replace those crappy Cruisin' Exotica games.

I dunno bout y'all, but I'd love to see one of those booths set up to run Forza/GT on an Xbox/PS3 with the full set of driving peripherals - that don't suck.

I think it'd be a great idea because there are people like me who can't afford to shell out $100+ on the wheel/pedals alone. To be able to just play a race or two with a full seat/wheel/pedals/shifter setup at the movies would be awesome.
