Namco Bandai Plans PS3 Arcade Board

Officials from Japanese publisher and arcade manufacturer Namco Bandai have announced that the company is developing a series of new arcade games which will use the Cell microprocessor, according to a new Reuters report.

The new arcade hardware will also use the same Nvidia designed RSX graphics chip as the PlayStation 3, which will make conversions between future arcade titles and the PlayStation 3 relatively easy.

Further details obtained by Japanese newspaper the Mainichi Daily News has revealed that Namco Bandai's Tekken 6, the latest iteration of its popular fighting game series, will be the first game to debut on the new hardware, due out later this year.

Tekken stays exclusive to the Playstation 3,disagree if you're a Xbox 360 fanboy who wants anything the Playstation 3 has to offer.

(I'm a ps3 owner by the way) I think with the cost of game development these days this will definitely come out on 360 as well. I mean, isn't the average cost at about 2 million+ now?
