In Topic: PlayStation Classic DEALS THREAD (Currently $20 @ Target)

The PlayStation Classic is now $19.99 new at GameStop, and you get a 20% off two or more pre-owned games offer with the purchase of it because it counts as a system purchase.


Thank you for the heads up. Since I’m in for one, can you PM me also with the 411 on jailbreaking, please?

Love the "Real Arcade Controls" on the Space Invaders cabinet - then it has a joystick for movement. Space Invaders in the arcade controlled with left and right buttons, not a joystick ... :)

I much prefer the Burgertime cabinet to the Karate Champ design. It has much more character, which is what you are going for here. The original Karate Champ arcade cabinet was pretty bland after all. Unfortunately that also means it takes the vertical monitor resolution, but the three other games are horizontal orientation so that's not great. I think in the end, if I were making the pick I would have made the cabinet themed on Bad Dudes to have a horizontal monitor, that cabinet was pretty nice but it has a curved marquee which is probably tougher to package in a compact form for shipping. As I recall, I think Caveman Ninja was a conversion kit, so it wouldn't look as great since they were made to fit in a wide variety of cabinets and did not have full graphics on the sides.

The Japanese versions had a stick as did the cabaret and cocktail versions. IIRC, the buttons were exclusive to Midway’s US cabinet.

Agreed on Burgertime. That’s a classic cab.

It's a little slow

I don’t feel tardy.

I'll likely do the same. I really wish they'd contract out to Sumo Digital to get Outrun 2006 CtC ported with some network updates for today. That I'd rebuy physically at full price.

I had the exact same thought.
