This month! To wrap up our recent visit to E3 and prepare for the next gen, we shall honor the current gen war of Nintendo vs. Microsoft vs. Sony. PlayStation 3, XBox 360 and Nintendo Wii will be set up for the day with loads of software available. Did you miss an important title in this current generation? Catch up now before it's too late. Maybe, just maybe you'll change your mind about who had the best system from 2005-2013.
Arcade challenge! It's Nintendo vs. YOU in the arcade challenge this month. It's 1990's "Vs. Dr. Mario" by Nintendo. Be the best at the game on this one day by logging the highest score on our arcade cabinet by 9pm and win a nifty $20 gift certificate and possibly get your name added to the "House Champion" tournament plaque on the Wall of Fame just above the arcade section of the store. Arcade challenge games are set to FREE PLAY all day, but please remember to let everyone get a shot. If you get the high score, move on, and no hogging the cabinet!
Tournament! It's Sony vs. Sony vs. Sony in our 6pm tournament. The game is PlayStation All-Stars on the PlayStation 3. Will you humiliate the competition as Parappa the Rapper, Sly Cooper or Sackboy or will you take on more obvious fighting choices like Heihachi, Kratos or Dante? Matches are 1 on 1, no items, no hazards, matches are stock 5, level is random. Sign-ups begin at 3pm, the tournament starts around 6pm and it's first-come, first-served in this FREE-to-join tournament.
