The Strong acquires huge Japanes vid game collection

Rochester, NY -- The Strong museum is announcing a new acquisition of interest to video game fans:

The International Center for the History of Electronic Games at The Strong has acquired a massive collection of Japanese video games -- making it the holder of the most comprehensive museum collection of Japanese video games and related items in the world.

The games came from collectors in southern France who began importing video games from Japan 20 years ago as teenagers and then collected every game for each of 22 systems.

The collection spans the 1980s and 90s when Japanese game designers were pioneering many influential technologies and playing styles.
