HanaHo Games Inc is a division of Semco/PVG that services the commercial coin-op industry. HanaHo primarily produced the HotRod arcade joystick. They also sold a line of non-coin operated PC game machines (the machines had an coin door, but it was non-functional) that included 50 game titles from Capcom. The company was started by Tony Hanna and Conway Ho. It is headquartered in Cerritos, California.

In January 2010, the official website was "down for maintenance". As of October 2013, it now points to another domain, www.braintreatmentcenter.com.

History[edit]

Through the 60s and mid 70s Semco produced store displays for Disney, Circuit City, Sears, Kraco Radio, JD industries, and Complete Warehouse Video showroom displays.

In the 80s the video game era came to a peak and Semco acquired PVG (Pacific Video Games) and started producing arcade cabinets for companies including Gremlin/Sega's Frogger, Star Trek, and Zaxxon, Wedges/Ledges, Lealand's Dragon's Lair and Super Off Road arcade video games cabinets, Indian Gaming Reservation Slot machines, Video Poker machines, Capcom's Street Fighter arcade video game cabinets, and Sega Gameworks Custom Classic Cabinets and Custom Arcade cabinets.

In December 2007, Capcom Games filed a federal lawsuit for copyright and trademark infringement against Hanaho Games and its President Conway Ho.[1]
