As a child of the arcade era, there was something special about each win I’d earn while on the Street Fighter II cabinet. Since each game was pay to play, every win felt that much more euphoric as I watched my defeated opponent have to pony up more money, whereas each loss stung that much more as I felt my pockets running out of coins. Essentially something more than pride was on the line each game, and that made everyone play all that much harder. With the advent of free online play, it’s been difficult putting something on the line other than pride… UNTIL NOW.
Today, I’m proud to announce our partnership with Virgin Gaming , which will allow players to compete with one another for not only pride, but for money as well! If there was only one thing that would’ve made victories sweeter back then, it would’ve been if each of those quarters that went into the machine, went to me instead. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case back then, but that’s definitely the case now.
So next time someone taunts you online, you can tell them to put their money where their mouth is.
