Metal Gear Arcade Shutting Down

Metal Gear Arcade is shutting down on December 1, 2016.

Very sad to see it go, it's pretty much the last remnant of MGO2.
It's lost a lot of popularity, so I do understand why they're shutting it down.
Around a year ago or so, Droogie tried one out and couldn't find anyone to play with, he ended up playing some bots.

It's a really cool idea, and I would have loved to try one out myself.
Maybe we can get out hands on one in the future and give it a shot, but not sure. Trying to reverse engineer one of these doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun, though.

A lot of these were already phased out a couple years ago according to some arcade employees I spoke to when I was in Tokyo in 2014.

It's probably a stupid question, but
If you were somehow able to access an MG Arcade unit, do you think you would be able to salvage assets/whether they would be compatible at all?

Not sure really. We'd have to get one to find out.
