Beatmania goes Gold!

Beatmania IIDX GOLD is now up and running at Brunswick Zone in Naperville, IL. If you're close by, I suggest giving it a try and supporting Beatmania in the US.

Anyways, here's major highlights about the test:

-The machine is a Dedicated U.S. version. Everything is in English (except the Japanese song titles).. menus, title, instructions, everything!

-The e-amuse isn't up and running, but the Konami rep present at the testing site said that Konami is working on doing something about e-amuse in America.

-1p and 2p can pick separate difficulties!
