Game Machine - A revista japonesa "oficial" dos arcades

Recommended Posts

Hj por acaso descobri um site que disponibiliza a (talvez pioneira) revista que circulava para os donos de arcades japoneses e outros negocios parecidos, desde 1974

tem muitas anuncios de maquinas, precos e datas de lancamento... muita coisa historica que nao apareceu em nenhum outro lugar, mas claro, praticamente tudo japones.

pelo q eu vi, as edicoes mais pra frente comecaram a ter uma ou duas paginas com materias em ingles

vale a pena nem que seja pra ver as fotos e anuncios


site com os pdfs:



presented by Amusement Press
