4-30-2015 update = E-Gaming has released their events/tournaments list for this year. Tournament specific details will be updated ASAP (probably in the overflow post if I manage to hit the character cap).

@ abcbadcat and SatoshiS: We are currently waiting on our Arcades vendor to give us the list for this year. I'll update the OP ASAP and announce it =)

@ jedisurvivor : Yes!

Thanks to offers from the community and new developments, E-Gaming is busy adjusting the tournament schedule and finalizing new tournament details. Given the sheer amount of details however, we might update it in waves.

@ Mizuki - We will be updating either the OP or the 2nd post in this thread with details. What I can tell you tho is for the DOTA2 1 vs 1, it will be based on the "Practice 1 vs 1" that is found in-game.

Any explanation why USF4 is on 360 instead of PS3, which was used in previous years?

@abcbadcat - We are working with our arcade vendor to get that final list out ASAP. We do sincerely apologize to you and the general public on the delay on this list. Games Management does know of people wanted a good selection and esp bemani games.

@bahamutknightzero - We did have someone ask a similar question on our social media page and here is that answer:

Quote
"Originally we were looking at the PS4 edition until we found out it will not be released in time for 'Con - this forced us to fall back to previous generation. Given what was used for EVO 2014, staff inventory, and what our sponsors can offer, we decided on the 360 edition."

Much appreciated and a great list this year.  Now to see if I'll win my bet that the P1 buttons on that Strikers 1945 III machine will still need new micros. :)

I need to find my old Initial D cards now; I miss using my old RX8 back at SJSU. Will we be able to buy new cards from the machines?

And what version of DDR will you have? (Or is it DDR 2013?)
