What's the difference between an arcade version of the game and a pc version?

#1TalesOfGodPosted 10/28/2013 10:07:28 PM
I know an example of this is the new Mario Kart Arcade that some of these games never come over but what about games that do come to PC?

Here's an example:
Melty Blood AA is priced at about $60 for PC

Melty Blood AA (arcade version) is like $3177

Why would people even pay this much for the arcade version? Do arcades give better controls or something?

Do arcade versions have a higher resolution or processing?
I simply don't get it and it puzzles me.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

So what makes this so special from a PC mother board?
Is it like a much more advance version or something?

It allows you to make an arcade cabinet with it.

How about the fact that you can make people pay you to play the arcade version?

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Sounds like one is literally arcade cabinet compatible, like mentioned.

Couldn't you just do that with a PC, a cabinet, and an arcade stick?

buy expensive hardware with copyrighted software on it = set up shop and pay people to play on your machine.
