They're still $300 on GameStop website if you want to buy it

Except this cabinet is exclusive to Frys and BestBuy.

Game List:

 

Asteroids

Asteroids Deluxe

Centipede

Crystal Castles

Gravitar

Liberator

Lunar Lander

Major Havoc

Missile Command

Millipede

Quantum

Tempest

 

Seems like they combined the 2 different Atari cabs offered by Arcade1up and then added some new games. Gravitar and Quantum are very cool and are very expensive in their full-size form.

Nice of them to give free shipping on this item as I imagine it would cost a pretty penny to ship as it looks heavy as hell.

Specs list it as 56.7 pounds which probably does not bode well for the material quality.

Pretty cool.  Lots of options with these cabinets and there is a rumor they are making table-top units for next year.  I'm in wait and see mode on these because I could go nuts.

Definitely not arcade quality. I bought a Pac-Man machine a couple weeks back and it’s ridiculous just how heavy that one is

It's $300-400.  A good, current, multi-game arcade machine is ~$3,000 (Pac-Man Pixel Party), so temper your expectations accordingly in terms of screen, build, etc.

These machines will be the perfect price point for the guy who wants a game in his basement and doesn't wanna hunt down a used one on Craigslist. Moreover, those older games with the CRTs can have monitor issues. Purists will poo-poo this, but this COULD be the gateway drug for those who want to get into the hobby.

 

Now if only pinball machines were cheaper...

Been debating on getting the Street Fighter one for $299. It just worries me that there’s not very many games. If it could be modded, I’d be all over it. Technically you could probably build a cabinet that ran EmulationStation on a Raspberry Pie for about the same. Way more games but a little more work. Instructables has a few decent set ups.

I'm hoping these sell well so that they produce some of the ones they made a poll for on their twitter ( nba jam, marvel vs capcom, tmnt)

Ok, but this doesn't have Pac-Man Pixel Party. And a regular Pac-Man cabinet only costs probably $500-$1000

If you are buying this for asteroids you loose the arcade control setup on this one. and if you buy for centipede you loose having a vertical monitor on this one. that kinda of kills the point of buying these if you dont get real arcade feel.

 you better of buying the 299 ones

I’m so tempted on this. I wish the other Midway cab had Robotron on it instead of Rampage. That would be a must buy for me then.

Still way too short, even with that stand underneath it.

If you want to be a big spender, there's always http://www.arcadelegends.com/ or chicago-gaming.com (for the main site)

 

I have a different model than the one they're selling now but I'm satisfied with the quality of it. Like 125 games on it

 

It's like 3 grand on Amazon and they have an expansion pack with more games.

Actually, now I'm upset, the 3's expansion pack has Spy Hunter and Gorf

If they did this with a SNK cabinet, I'd be down.

I saw a picture online of a guy standing next to this as I think its the same brand. I want to say its not much over 4 feet tall. (I am totally guessing on this) For the price, I wouldn't expect a full size unit or even that great of quality.

A super gun is a gateway drug. This is likely more of a bad trip.

Sales numbers don't often solve licensing issues.

Yeesh.  That looks really really short.  I couldn't sit in front of it comfortably on a stool.  And the additional stand seems to make it high enough to not work with a chair, but still too short to stand at comfortably.  My son will love it, but me.....I'm still really not sure about this.  I'm holding out hope for the rumored table-tops.

Still, you can tell its a little over half his height so about 4 feet. I wouldn't be comfortable playing it too long. Great for kids though.

fwiw they were pretty open about the height of the machines, and that the riser is intended to bring it to near normal arcade height, nobody has been fooled about this fact

Actually that's Youtuber John Riggs, part of the MetalJesusRocks crew. His channel is mostly old school retro gaming.

 

 

He is somewhere in the upper 6 feet if I recall.

The snob in me thinks this isn't as cool anymore mow that it's mainstream and mass produced. Would love to see more competition otherwise I'll stick with custom cab makers and stick my own Raspberry Pi in there.
