I think the game room is definitely a fun concept. I completely agree about the pricing issues you discussed. It will be interesting to see how it all comes out.

The concept is great.. but the pricing isn't as much.
For that price I rather goto a real arcade for the experience.
I do hope they offer an all you can eat buffet for a fixed price.
