Taito has announced they have reached an agreement with Valve to bring [i]Half Life 2[/i] to arcades next year worldwide. The game will run off of Taito’s new TypeX hardware cabinet based of an ATX IBM PC with AGP Radeon graphics cards.
The arcade version of [i]Half Life 2[/i] will be slightly modified from the PC version with three modes: story mode, networked co-op mode, and versus play. The arcade cabinet will also feature widescreen and 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound.
[i]Half Life 2[/i] is one of the most anticipated games this year after dealing with problems of theft and delayed game release. The game has officially gone gold and scheduled for a November 16 release for the PC.
