LATEST COLLECTION INFORMATION IS CONFIRMING THE DROP IN EARNINGS OF "COMMSNANDO".

FOR EXCAAMPLE, IN IT'S FIRST FIVE WEEKS AT FASCINATION ARCADE IN N>CN>Y>C>. .Y.C., 
"COMMANDO" EARNED A TOTAL OF $3860.75...IT'S FIRST TWO WEEKS WERE QUITE IMPRESSIVE
IMPRESSIVE...EARNING OVER $1000.00 EACH WEEK.

HOWEVER, LOOKING AT "PAPERBOY" WE SEE THAT IT EARNED $4135.25 FOR IT'S FIRST
FIVE SWEEKS...THAT IS ABOUT 275.00 MORE THAN "COMMANDO".

THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT "PAPERBOY " IS A MORE CONSISTENT LONG TERM EARNER...
UNFORTUNATELY, THE COST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO PIECES MAKES "COMMANDO"
SEEM LIKE A BETTER BUY...WE MUST CONVINCE OUR OPERATORS THAT WHEN THEY BUY
TH"THE BOIYY", THEY ARE GETTING A SOLID MONEY EARNER FOR THE LONG STRETCH, A GOOD
LONG-TERM INVESTMENT.

REGARDING THE NEW GAME "MAYHEM" (THE BALL BLAZER RIP-OFF) COLLECTOIONS ARE NOT
THAT GREAT SO IT'S NO BIG DEAL...HOWEVER, ONE GAME THAT OLOOKS LIKE A SLEEPER
IS PITFALL !!II--IT'S BEEN DOING REAL WELL AND CONSISTENT AT THAT.

THE LATEST VS. PRODUCTS--HOAGANS ALLEY AND DUCK HUNT MAKE ME SCARED...
THESE GAMES TOGETHER IN A SPLIT SCREEN VS. SYSTEM ARE DOING OVER $1000.00
A WEEK AT FASCINATION ARCADE IN N.Y.  THE PRICE FOR EACH ONE  ((WITH GUNS):
A REAL CHEAP 195$195.00...THESE THINGS CAN PAY FOR THEMSELVES IN ONE DAY!!
EVEEN IF THEY DROP IN EARNINGS REAL QUICK, AT THAT PRICE IST'S A GREAT BUY.

THATS ALL WEEK 
[C     FIR NOIWOR NOW...
