"See low price in cart"
Holy fudge no thanks! I can imagine the pieces of the pie going on here between Marvel and Konami, but geez.
It is surprising. I know the excuse will be cost of materials/freight has gone up, but I wonder how much they'll be able to get away with.
And I do like A1UP cabs as nostalgic game room decoration pieces. I have a bunch. But, they weren't even on my radar until this thread alerted me to clearance cabs. I picked up the first gen cabs for pretty cheap and figured that would be the end - this thing obviously didn't work given how Wal-Mart was having to give them away.
Nope! Still going strong somehow and now selling cabs for $600.
That being said.... where is The Simpsons so I can pre-order!?????? There were some sites claiming it was going up today, too, but I'm not surprised it hasn't since I have yet to see an "official" announcement.
