Japan’s Arcades

I can’t read it because it’s hidden behind a paywall, but looks like the Financial Times has a long piece on Japan’s arcades, and how they’re still quite popular. Would love to read it, to see how it compares with what we covered in our Arcade Mania book a decade ago.

Update: You can read the article by simply copy/pasting the title (“Game on: why Japan’s arcades are still winning”) in google, and then following the link. It’s a nice feature, and I was quite pleased to see Arcade Mania mentioned (Brian was interviewed for the article).
