Our friends over at Akihabara News recently got the chance to test the real-life Initial D arcade machines, and provided us with some interesting footage. Video after the break. Click here for more pictures.

I have to say that I was not prepared for such FUN! Not only are the video game and graphics quite nice and very realistic when it come to the driving experience, but also, the roads in the video games are taken from real roads in Japan (or sometimes are close to real ones). But, the moving platform, in my opinion, is the real killer in this game; it is as violent as in real life, and you will feel your car drifting or doing a power slide as real as if you where in a real car, on a real road
