New Edge, Sega ink dealfor networked gaming

Arcade gamers will soon have a chance to shoot it out in cross-country tournaments when they plunk their quarters into video game machines, under a deal announced Wednesday between Sega Amusements USA and Vancouver-based New Edge Networks.
New Edge will link Sega's coin-operated gaming terminals through a national high-speed network. The network won't just connect players. It will also allow Sega to monitor games and remotely upgrade terminals.
The game "Extreme Hunting 2: Tournament Addition" will be the first to be networked under this arrangement.
