Wow, better start saving, so that I can own this classic in about 20 years! Will be great looking next to its then 50 years old predecessor!  :D

The name of the game is a bit lame though, battle pod, IMO

yep. name sucks. but the game looks like fun. i still prefer the old one though.
Looking for Dragons Lair 1 or 2, Space Ace, Double Dragon, Robotron and yeah... a Shinobi would be cool, too!

Where did that awesome Battle Pod photo come from? Is it some kind of trade show that is happening?

Not into arcade games any more, but I take the carpet!!!
-EDIT-
After seeing a couple of videos, it looks like the joystick and thruster is a bit flimsy, I dont think they can take the punishment in an arcade for long....

This picture has been taken at the biggest attraction/amusment expo in Orlando/USA : the IAAPA Attraction Expo... still in progress (from 17th to 21th November 2014)

Don't know the price, but I'm sure this should big a way much expensive than that!
The IAAPA is an expo that present stuff for theme park, Roller coasters and huge stuff like that... mostly only amusement park could afford a such setup? Or not?  :-\
