Is there no longer an all day video game play option? Is it only hourly play?

Wrong convention to come to for that man.

I asked the videogame people about that before, and they didn't seem to want to do that.  I suppose it's possible it might be added later, but I don't really know, it's up to them.

Actually no. It has just recenctly moved a bit away from video games. A few years ago there was an Nvidia bus in the exhibit hall. And the all day video game pass was only left maybe two years ago.

Yeah my boys enjoyed doing the all day video games when they had it. Buy a bracelet and play all day. I would imagine they make more money with the hourly tickets. Just wondering.

I was excited about the old arcade games until I read there would be 'around' 16 of them... 60,000 attendees; I have a feeling there will be a bit of a line...:)

I would point out that, if you like those, there's a whole ROOM filled with arcade machines, many of them classic ones; the corridor is just a taste.  Room 140 will have about 40 machines, all set on free play; the cost is only $4 an hour.
