FYI: for anyone who got the Ms. Pacman countercade from the QVC deal.

 

I just received mine today.

It's fine, works as advertised and has the two games it should have.

 

But this is different from the Ms. Pacman countercades that are popping up on BestBuy, Target etc.

Those versions are being advertised as having 4 games:  Ms. Pacman + three others.

 

The QVC deal was cheaper but yeah... A1up actually bothered to make different SKU of the Ms Pacman countercade. And from what I can tell, it's exclusive to QVC, lol.

 

A couple of ways to tell the difference from pics:

1) QVC version has 1 button to the right of the stick, where the other versions have 2 buttons

2) harder to notice, but the side panels will list the game w/trademark date in small print (look under the main graphic).  The QVC model only shows two lines of print for the two games, where the other versions show four lines of print for all four games.

3) not quite sure, but I think the overall footprint of the QVC model is a tiny bit smaller.  Screensize seems the same.  I'll need to compare it with another countercade once I get home. 

 

I'm happy with what I got as all i cared about was Ms. Pacman and I really didn't feel like bothering with the stand-up model.

It's a good build and i noticed they are using a spring-loaded switch for the volume with varying scale of volume.  No more "OFF-Loud-Louder" like I'm used to with the SF cabinet.  You move the volume switch to either side and an on-screen graphic pops up to show you the volume setting

 

the easiest way to tell the difference is QVC trim is pink and Walmart/Best Buy trim is yellow

Man, that is a nice setup!

thats my setup but i wouldn't nearly have as many A1Up's as I do if I hadn't got them on walmart clearance. I think the ALU is cool as well, not gonna hate on anyone's setup. Little dude in the photo is my 5 year old nephew and I'm teaching him to like all games.

That is a lot of arcades!!! Awesome and probably incredibly expensive setup!

I am actually one of the weirdos with one of these in his “office” although I’m a tradesman, so there’s not any actually office work taking place in here.
 

 

great setup. i will say i got a lot of them through walmart clearance, i paid retail for 2 of them.
