The METROcade is the place to be for fighters, FPS, and all of the console and arcade-style action at the convention. We provide the ultimate convention gaming experience in conjunction with Sore Thumbs Video Gaming.  We have gathered console games from the US and Japan, providing PSX, PS2, Dreamcast, Gamecube, XBOX, PS3, PS4, XBOX 360, XBOX One and Wii/WiiU game systems. Take a break from the hustle of the convention hallways while you enjoy the console games you know and love, or immerse yourself in the foreign world of import games and find out what’s so “Must Have” about the newest releases on the other side of the Pacific! Also, back this year will be a full arcade-style DDR machine!
