Thank you so much!  I ordered Space Invaders over 6 months ago, and its good to know they are trying to get it right.  I own 4 of these Quarter Arcades and they are amazing, IMO, way better than the out of scale and shoddy Arcade1Ups.

These do look awesome! I'm tempted to pre-order a Space Invaders, seeing that they're recreating the mirror "ghosting" affect and all that. The two TMNT machines also look great, though I don't think it would be much fun to actually try to play it with four players (though the USB controllers could make it more plausible, you'd miss out on using the actual control panels.)

Since the Replicades are 1/6 scale, they have offered USB/second controller & HDMI for a minute, as those are 1 player at 1 time for sure. It looks like Quarter Arcade is now going that route as well. I applaud the efforts to make these playable to more people in different situations and such, but I have no plans to try and play any of these with 4 people. I love how these are so accurate to the real thing(fine details and accuracy to real thing), but playing in the small form is novel, but never ideal.

 

If I'm gonna be sitting around with that many people, I would run an emulator on a large tv, fire up some wireless controllers and go for broke. I guess the bigger A1up 4 players are best, but those seem beyond cramped to me, but for sure the best option. I may actually end up passing on those Turtle cabs, as those are arcade games that hold no nostalgia for me, and due to there size and materials, will probably cost more than the standard cabs do. It's good to see other options made available, as more choices are always best, because even if I won't play a certain way, others might and will.

Just make sure to invite your 3 smallest friends over.  Seriously though, the Quarter Arcades are playable, but are really show pieces.

T2 now has a preorder price of $699.99 lol.

+1 LOL. I wouldn't pay $700 if it had 3 games on it.

I put together the X-Men cab - I do like the fake coin doors, although I wish they would have come with the Legacy cabs.

Last call on New Wave Toys latest Replicade 1/6 scale arcade cab of "Missle Command", as the preorders close today at 6 PST. They are offering 2 cabs, one is the OG arcade unit(149.99) and the other is the "Field Test Edition(169.99)", and both have a standard discount of $10 for preorder($279.99 for bundle pack). Use code  "MCVIP10" at checkout for another $10, so $20 off total up until 6 PST today. They are also including a free mini poster for preorders, and that is a first, while supplies last of course. https://newwavetoys....-pre-order-page

Looks like we have another AtGames sale incoming.

https://www.atgames....inter-sale-2021

I’m getting more and more tempted to sell off one of my Arcade1up conversions and buy an AtGames pinball with control panel add on- even though I already have a virtualpin that I built.

Yeah, last “sale” they dropped the price of their controller by $5, but increased the shipping cost from $10 to $15.

Depends on what you are looking for, but there are some great deals. Their shipping is always BS, but the pinball table packs are usually a good price on these sales, as well as the bitpixel marquees.

In case anyone is interested, iiRcade is having a huge holiday sale right now.  $200-$300 off all their cabinets.  
Very high quality machines.  I have one and love it.  Excellent sticks/buttons.

Are these the same size as Arcade1up? I’m looking at the Dragon’s Lair one…

Maybe a little bigger. High quality components, great sound. I’ve read nothing but great reviews. I really like that retro mania one too. You’d just have to be interested in a cabinet with a digital storefront with additional digital games for sale to really be into this cabinet though.

Edit- and honestly, I HATE all the “I have one cabinet with 10,000 games on it” posts and such. Hate it. I’ve started a cabinet or 2 with a complete mame set but always wind up widdling that down to a couple hundred games- and even that’s too many. Just my opinion, but I have no interest in having every game on every console ever on one cabinet. I’d be happy with something like this with 20-40 games as long as I really like all those games.

I would say bigger.  the control deck sits a  bit higher than the Arcade1Up cabinet one does with a riser.  
The build quality is leaps and bounds better than Arcade1Up especially the controls and the speakers.

It comes with 11 games pre loaded onto it (Dragon's Lair) is one of them and then as was said already, they have a digital store and you can buy more games a la carte.  All games are officially licensed and optimized to run on their platform.  

 

They're always releasing more and more games for the system.  A good mix of retro arcade stuff and more modern games.  

I have played Arcade1Up, but I don't own one.  I do own an AtGames Legends Ultimate that I modded to have hundreds of games and I have an iiRcade.  I will say I like my iiRcade way better.  Just a better overall experience.

From Reddit:

Best Buy 10% off one Arcade1up product for the rest of November!

Seems to only work when the discount is $50 or more (Legacy cabs don't seem to apply unfortunately)

Works for one applicable A1up cab purchase or preorder at a time.

Code: NOV22CCSAVE10

One Walmart here put all of their Pac-Man A1Up legacy cabs on a skid near the front of a store and discounted them to $175. The price change showed up on Brickseek temporarily and now that store shows 0 stock, despite having 8-10 of them.

Walmart has these 84 inch Skee Ball games on sale for $94. Ordered one for my games room. Can't really go wrong at this price.

You really can’t go wrong with that. If I had the space for it I’d buy it in a heartbeat. My daughter would go nuts.

I mean, yeah, it goes wrong when the wife comes home and says "What the hell did you buy!?!"

Looks like it’s sturdy compared to other machines in the same price range. If it had the same scoring as a regular Skee Ball machine I would have ordered it.

Was apparently a scam, from what I understand it appeared as ARECADE1UP in peoples bank accounts.
