Arcade Game ROM Availability sign now

Dear Whoever It May Concern,

Many people love to go to arcades and play their favorite games for maybe 50 cents a game. Some of them may say to themselves Gee, I wish I could play this at home. They may not know it, but this is possible through the use of emulators such as MAME. All the user needs is the game ROMs and he (or she) can play the game on many systems without arcade hardware.

Thats good and all, but there is one problem: the user must legally own the ROMs or else they are doing something very illegal. So you may say Why dont you just buy an arcade cabinet? But many people dont have the money or the space to house an arcade cabinet. The obvious solution is for you to sell us the ROMs, but you do not seem to want to distribute them. This is especially bad because those arcade games that are no longer available in arcades have no public access besides the ones that you have put on other platforms, in private collections, and maybe put on the Internet. In fact, the goal of the MAME project is preservation and documentation of old games.

We, the Undersigned, hope that you consider distributing ROMs to the public. This could be a good investment for you. What if your ROMs could only be played if the user subscribes to a subscription service? Then not only can the users play their favorite arcade games without leaving the house (or in some cases, the office), you can make a reasonable amount of cash as well.

Please consider our petition, and we hope that you listen to us.

    I don't really like the idea of subscribing to play. Take a leaf from the Amiga software companies and release the games available for free for personal use.
