Arcade Baby

Postby Zap! » Sun Jan 03, 2010 2:54 am

I so need this, it looks amazing. While the $400+ price tag seems steep, it's still a lot less than the $1,700+ Ultracade. It seems to have a UK-only release as far as I can tell. Any opinions on this? Doesn't it look like something fun to have around the house? :)

Actually I don't think $400 is too bad considering. Are the games legit/licensed?

After looking over the list of games, it has come to my attention that this is nothing more than a pirate Famicom/NES system. I am having my doubts that any are the actual arcade versions.

Oof, that's too bad...I'm getting sick of hearing of crap like this! (pouts at wanting 'purity' in games, dammit!)

Well, you can try the following for 100% licensed purity. It even has downloadable games so you can add to the 100's or so already on there. Only catch? It's $1,700.
