News: Lindbergh unveiled

lind.jpgWe know everything about the Lindbergh through some evil Famitsu scans, with some of the games referenced in a post below. As Sega told this summer, their new arcade system is not based on any of the next-gen consoles. It’s more in the same vein as Taito’s Type-X board – it’s a PC-based arcade board with a 3GHz Pentium 4 processor, a NVidia GPU, 1024MB of memory, games on protected DVD-ROMs, USB controllers and a big effort put on its LAN capacities. Whereas rumors presented the Lindbergh as a successor to the Chihiro (which had an XBox-based architecture), Sega’s new board is a quite “neutral” system – its NVidia environment perhaps giving the PS3 a slight potential edge for future ports. A new project by Yu Suzuki is also joining Afterburner, Power Smash 3, The House of the Dead 4 and Virtua Fighter 5 in the Lindbergh’s line-up. The game, Psy-Phi (pronounced like ‘Sci-Fi’), is described as a “versus action-shooting game” apparently using a tactile screen.
