The CP System or CPS-1 is an arcade system board developed by Capcom that ran game software stored on removable ROM cartridges. Released in July of 1988 more than two dozen arcade titles were released for CPS-1, before Capcom shifted game development over to its successor, the CPS-2. Other developer arcade game boards where only designed to run only one game, Capcom set out upon a project to produce a system board that could be used to run multiple games, in order to reduce costs and make the system more attractive to it's clients. Powered by a Motorola 68000 (@ 10 MHz) CPU this Arcade Machine/Board brought us one if not the best arcade fighting games in history (StreetFighter).
The CP System hardware was also used in Capcom's unsuccessful attempt at home console market penetration, the CPS Changer (Capcom's answer to the Neo Geo AES).
