Arcade 1UP

https://www.arcade1up.com/




Anyone else checked these out? Essentially they are mini versions of arcade cabinets that run multiple games. I think they pretty cool and wouldnt mind picking some up like the Street Fighter 2 and Final Fight onesbut not sure what I would do with them. Im sure they run on MAME also so you can probably hack them. Cant find any pics to upload so you have to check out the website.

Re: Arcade 1UP

Yeah, I was looking at these last week. Walmart had them available for preorder at $299. I didn't realize you had to do a bit of work to put them together though. I'd dig the Street Fighter one as well, but I don't think i'd end up using them that much over just playing on a regular console.

Re: Arcade 1UP

I got excited when I first saw these, but then I saw how small they are. The screen is only 17" and the cabinet is something like 2/3 size.

I would love a full size one that I could pop my Raspberry Pi in.

Re: Arcade 1UP

I am very interested in these. I already have quite a few real arcade games, but I'm really digging the look and price point of these. Of course the riser will be absolutely necessary, otherwise these are ridiculous.

I'd mostly be interested in the Centipede cabinet, as the track-ball is something you can't recreate on an emulator - I also have a soft-spot for Crystal Castles.

You can find plans online for how to built one yourself. It's not as hard as you might think.
