Another Arcade Dies, Long Live Xbox Live and PSN

Arcade Infinity is going the way of Mini-M&M's around fat people. Though, it may have not lasted for Infinity it has a awesome name.

Update: Wow, turns out so much outcry for the place closing the owners of the plaza the store is located have given them 6 month more of time. It also seems the city decided to raise? the license for operating the place. Good to raise the price when a store is failing.

The Arcade is having one last game night.

It's kind of heartbreaking to read there post on facebook:
As many of you may already know from the reports on Shoryuken, iPlayWinner and other websites, Arcade Infinity is closing after 10 years of business. Given that the articles were saying this was a rumor, we can confirm that they are in fact closing. Problems with the city, hikes in rent price and a lack of business has taken it's toll on the arcade. Round1 opening right down the street didn't help.

To show support and thanks for ...Ken, Jeff, Jack, Tammy and the rest of the Tao family for all of the hard work they've put into this amazing piece of arcade history we want to try and get as many people as possible to show up on it's last day of business. Come meet up with old friends, share memories, play some games and help show that even though the past few years have been shaky, there's still a great amount of love for what exists to many of us as a place where we've made great friends and shared fond memories
