Arcade system board - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (268 words)
An arcade system board is a standardized printed circuit board or group of printed circuit boards that are used as the basis for multiple arcade games with very similar hardware requirements.
Early arcade system boards incorporated the game directly into the system board, which saved on manufacturing costs (due to the common components) but required arcade game owners to buy an entire system board for each new game.
This method benefitted both manufacturers and arcade game owners; the owners only had to buy the system board once, and could switch out the games at a fraction of the price and with less effort, and the manufacturers could produce fewer of the costly system boards and more of the less-costly games.
User talk:Gingerfield rocks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3157 words)
The important thing to note is that many of these namco games came out only in japan; it is tacitly understood that some opeopel coudl have ogtten their hands on it elsewhere.
Also the Namco Arrangement games were not separate games, they were part of the arcade games Namco Classics Collection Volume 1 and 2 so their mention in series templates is debatable, at the very least this needs to be specified as the six arrangement games were never released as separate games.
The fact that Namco even paired them in Namco x Capcom also gives more weight to the idea that the games are somehow related or at least stem from a certain common -not very successful- idea.
