The success of a commercial arcade largely depends on its ability to continuously engage and attract customers. A critical part of this is regular refreshing of the game library, particularly when it comes to Virtual Reality (VR) systems. However, the timing and strategy for adding new games require careful consideration.

When Should You Refresh Your VR Game Library?

The frequency of game refreshes depends on several factors, such as your customer base, the size of your current library, and the rate of new VR game releases. However, a good rule of thumb is to refresh your game offerings every 3-6 months. This keeps your VR experiences fresh and exciting for your repeat customers and can attract new patrons looking for the latest in VR gaming.

Choosing the Right Games for Your Arcade

While it's tempting to add every new game to your library, it's crucial to be selective. The choice of games should be based on a variety of factors:

Diversity: Aim for a range of genres, difficulty levels, and age appropriateness to cater to a wide audience.

Quality and Reviews: Look for games with high-quality graphics and gameplay, good reviews, and positive player feedback.

Compatibility: Ensure that the games are compatible with your VR system and can be easily integrated into your current setup.

Interestingly, not all popular VR games that work well in home settings translate well to commercial arcades. For example, a game that requires long hours of play to progress may be popular for home use, but won't be suitable for an arcade setting where players are looking for shorter, more immediate experiences. Games that require complicated setup or calibration each time can also be challenging for arcades, where quick turnover and ease of use are essential.

Marketing Your New Games

Once you've chosen the right games to add to your library, it's crucial to effectively market these new additions:

Announce New Games: Use email newsletters, social media posts, and in-store signage to announce the arrival of new games.

Host Events: Consider launching new games with special events or tournaments to generate excitement.

Promotional Offers: Encourage people to try the new games with discounts or special deals for a limited time.

For instance, when the highly anticipated "Creed: Rise to Glory" was released, many commercial arcades saw the opportunity to attract both new and existing customers. They hosted events celebrating its addition to their VR systems, marketed it heavily on social media, and offered special deals for first-time players.
