ALL.Net (Amusement Linkage Live Network) is an arcade video game network communication system and digital distribution system made by Sega Corporation. It is similar to the Taito NESiCAxLive game distribution systems and NESYS arcade network; the player smart card system is similar to the Konami e-AMUSEMENT system.
The ALL.Net service consists of 65 games mainly from Sega and Bandai Namco, 12 of which are downloadable on candy cabinets and 12 of which are medal games, or miscellaneous amusement machines. 11 games have retired their network service.
ALL.net was developed by Sega in 2004. It was created as a method of allowing players to save player profiles, player rankings, and high scores, and create online rankings. The system was based on the previous VF.net created by Sega and NTT-ME for Virtua Fighter 4 in 2001, as well as Sammy's Atomiswave AW-net network. In 2004 Sega and Sammy merged, and consequently the network systems were merged. This was done in cooperation with Namco to create a unified system.
Initially the service was only available in Japan, but following a trial in Hong Kong in 2008 the service has been extended to other parts of Asia in 2010. The system has been rolled out to South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, China, and North America.
ALL.Net was further developed as ALL.Net P-ras to allow digital distribution of arcade games, as well as for software updates.
ALL.Net P-ras allows profit sharing with the arcade operators, with Sega renting games for free, while the operator buys the cost of the hardware, with all revenues from players being split between Sega and the arcade operator.
