Bring home the magic of old school arcade gaming this Christmas with Arcade1Up! The arcade-style machines were first introduced in the fall of 2018, and all of the major retail chains are showcasing them front and center this holiday season. How many of us have dreamed of how awesome it would be to have an arcade in our own homes?! Do you have a room that you play games in, or do you have a GAME ROOM? Looks like the folks over at Arcade1up are helping make that difference.
The Arcade1up website claims they have the “only officially licensed arcade cabinets made to fit your home or office.” The systems are 4ft tall (standard arcade games stand 6ft) and feature original cabinet art, authentic gameplay, and coin-less operation. The company sells risers, or boosters that attach to the bottom of the console, making it more comfortable for playing while standing. LED decor and other accessories are also available. The average cost of an Arcade1up cabinet is around $250.
Here’s a look at the systems and the games they come pre-loaded with. Note: Space Invaders is said to rollout next year as a GameStop exclusive!
