According to reddit, a spokesman for Arcade1up said that there will be a one day sale on July 9th, with prices being $300-400 off. I believe arcades like X-men and the Simpsons were mentioned.

The details about this are a bit strange. Something about there being an in person event on that day, but then the sales going online later, but unspecified. If more information comes along I'll post it. Just keep a look for July 9th to see if something you're interested in goes on sale.

LOL. The Simpsons is still $399 in my neck of the woods (according to Brickseek).

Seems like this would be a good cab for converting to Retro Pi, no? I think that's why I'd be interested.

Keep in mind that a pi setup isn't quite powerful enough to play some games.

 

I'm actually in the middle of a project converting my MAME setup from a pi3 setup to a full blown PC due to that.  I got it connected to my cab last night for the first time.

 

I want to be able to play Killer Instinct and Blitz without any hiccups.  Even games like the MK games and NBA Jam can be a pain to get working right on the setup I have.  You have to make sure to use the right emulator version or tweak the settings on the ones that play at like 10fps by default.

 

Just wanted to give some input from someone who's been there before.  The pi setup is still great though and was easier to get going than the PC version was so it's not like it is bad or anything.

I also want to mention I am selling a complete pi2jamma setup since I've moved onto PC based MAME setup in my cabinet.  

 

It is a plug/play setup into a JAMMA cab and already configured with MAME,  however you would have to hook up buttons 4,5,6 for p1 and p2 but it's just running a couple wires.

 

Any interest shoot me a message and I can give more details.  If this doesn't belong here either, let me know and I'll delete it.

I'll admit this piqued my interest again, but I think I'm just over these. When these games were only being released in the cabs, it made the cabs way more appealing. But now we're getting home ports on current consoles, and I can just use my existing arcade sticks. Sure, some like 'The Simpsons' and 'X-Men' haven't, but I feel like it's only a matter of time now.

Simpsons was on PS3 at one point. Delisted now I believe but my old console still has it installed, so I guess moot point overall. Still has potential to be revived though.

Yeah, PS3 and Xbox 360. I just feel like these rights holders will want to get the most money out of the properties as possible, and they really don't have to do anything other than approve it.

More details about the sale tomorrow, sounds like different online sale prices will be revealed throughout the day.

 

I'm hoping the pinball machines are really cheap. I was considering buying the AtGames Pinball from Sam's Club but it's still $699.99 at my local store and I have given up hope of it ever going on clearance.

I have extremely low expectations, but I’ll be keeping an eye out tomorrow.

I have very limited space in my barcade. I can part with 1 (of 2) multicades and I can maaaaybe squeeze in another cab. So I’m looking at the possibility of adding 1, maybe 2 cabs max, in the near future. I’m reserving one of those for Daytona, should it ever actually happen.

I remember thinking $600 was too much when they first came out, and then they shot up to $750.  Now they are on perma sale for $600 again.  Hopeful they drop to at least $400.

So it looks like you have to submit a claim for the item using a document link and then they send you an invoice days later. You won’t even know the price until you get the invoice and there is no combined shipping for multiple items. What kind of nonsense is that to not tell you the price right away even if you aren’t committed to buy it.

Looks like the sale is a big turd parade. You won't know your price until invoiced.

I would have tried to get Outrun for $49 but on the Reddit post with people watching the livestream, someone said it was in person only.

 

Edit, and they are water damaged, that's why they are only $49

They dropped Mars Attack pinball down to $500 too...none around me, and I'd much rather have Marvel or Star Wars.

If it helps, you can do some steps to get all 30 pinball games on one machine. So if you find one machine for cheap, you can essentially justify it as a shell for any or all the current Arcade1Up pinball games.

Reading reviews, people seem to complain more about the actual pinball size for the Marvel and Star Wars games, making it hard to follow and react to with the flippers.

Yeah - the A1UP pinball machines are kinda sad because they were so close.  Higher resolution and a larger monitor would've really made them great.  As it is, they are a good idea with some decent compromises.  They are still fine, but the compromises are disappointing.

The price above still seems to be valid.  There's more than 1500 available, so the price could drop more if they're looking to eliminate the stock.

$450 is a great price on the pinball since it’s so easy to soft mod it and add all 30 (or more) pinball tables to it.

I’d personally want the Attack From Mars cabinet if only for the art, but at the end of the day everyone should have all 30 anyway.

They are releasing a thing.

Pretty cool, depending on the price. Nice list of games. It makes me regret my Marvel Super Heroes cab a little, even though it's the limited edition cab.

 

It is misleading to say something hasn't been available since a certain amount of time, because they're only referring to digital. Yes, the physical versions on PS2, Xbox and DC are a little expensive, but I've had MvC2 on DC since near it's release and can play it at any point, with better fighting sticks.

 

Wifi is nice though.

The thing is, the list of games is large, but it's also a list of similar fighting games that do what mvc2 does, but with less. It's like releasing an arcade cabinet of the sims 4, with the sims 1, 2 and 3 also included. It's all probably there to help boost the price, but if you are already playing Mvc2, why bother playing any of the others?

They should have thrown on there a 2 player version of X-Men the arcade game for some variety.  Heck even the two genesis xmen games as a bonus.

According to reddit, price is $600.

 

This is ultra day one for me. I regret never modifying my Naomi cab to play MvC2 before getting rid of it before moving, but this makes up for it. And holy shit wifi wtf.
