Melbourne Community Purchases Tekken 7 Cabs, Now Available For Play

Here in the city of Melbourne, Australia, the community has come together to purchase their own set of Tekken 7 cabs for everyone to play on. The 2 set of cabinet costed roughly $20,000 AUD to get down here and that's not including further ongoing payments for Bandai Namco's fee to keep it running making this a pretty extraodinary feat for everyone involved. For those of you in the city, the cabinets are now up and running and a streaming station is set-up beside it so you can play and record Tekken 7 footage. The pricing for the machines to play is $2 AUD to start and then every continue from there being $1 AUD. The shop is open from 10 AM until late every day of the week so come on down if you get the chance!

From Rame:

A year ago, the Melbourne Tekken scene was I'm a bit of turmoil. Tekken 7 was being released on Arcades but, as everyone soon came to find out, we were not getting it. For anyone that knows the Australian Tekken scene, you'll know that Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane get every rendition of Tekken within a month of international release.

A few months later, we were presented with an idea. Why not buy our own Tekken machine? This would solve the issue of not getting future Tekken games. But where would we put it? Jin from the Tekken community stepped up and provided us with a place to house it. Before we could even ask about raising the money between the community, Dion Xu stepped forward and donated half the money required to purchase the machine. $10,000 to be exact. His reason? He wanted to help the community that he is apart of. Jin provided the other half and the ball began to roll.

With help from the whole community, whether it was getting prices, phoning companies, etc, today that dream has become a reality.

Thank you to all those involved.
