I ordered it online for in store pickup, then did a return/rebuy for the clearance price. Website sold out pretty quick though.

Whoa. Walmarts still let you do return/rebuy? Seem like a lot of Walmarts aren't doing that now.

Just set up my Arcade Legends. Any advice on where to go to access more games, or any tips for getting started with mods?

I had a perfect 4 for 4 record until I tried to get the $400 Star Wars cab for $50. They wouldn’t let me do that one.

I got Final Fight, Pac-Man, and Star Wars for $50 and Space Invaders for $1.

Is there anyway to contract you for purchases, lol?  (half serious)

I'm starting to get nervous that there hasn't been any news on the Legends Gamer. I know that people who preordered or did the ticket thing through their website should be hearing something next week since they stated that first orders are going to ship first week of August. But no one is talking about. Fingers crossed.

Anyone have any experience with either of the Switch Hori Mario Kart wheels? Thinking of picking up one and using it in one of my cabs to change it to driving games only.

Found the new (I assume since I have not seen one before) Pac-Man/Galaga anniversary cab at a couple Wal-Marts over the weekend. It is pretty much my ideal cab but three bills is a tough sell for me. I am more on board at a buck and a half for this thing. Anyone more familiar with 1Ups expect pricing on this thing to drop or a sale?

Not any time soon, they just came out.  And it seems they are doing better with inventory.  My store only got one Pac-Man and it sold days ago without being restocked.

 

The units I expect to go on clearance soon are MK, Marvel, and maybe the Turtles.

I'm looking to mod my SF2 Arcade 1up cabinet so I can use my Raspberry pi4 with it, and I was wondering what opinions are on ArcadeModUp's parts? It looks like I'm looking at around $200 for the new control deck, sticks/buttons, video converter, an audio components. Has anyone used their products and if so, are they good quality? Is there a less expensive option with as good/better quality if not?

Why do you need a new control deck? The SF2 layout is one of the best stock ones. You could drill holes for the extra ones in their layout and save some money.

Most of the other components (sticks/buttons, video converter, and audio components) can be bought for similar prices from Amazon. I followed ETA Prime's instructions:

To mod my first cab and love the results while learning a lot along the way.

Wal-Mart is currently selling the Black Edition Capcom Cocktail Cabinet for $350.00. This cabinet normally retails for $500.

Would need to see that receipt to believe it. You definitely would've taken a picture if you got a cabinet for only $1.

Do a google search, as it happened to many people and they did take pics, and many gaming sites reported on it at the time, as that's how I found out about it.
