If I order it online at $199 for in-store pickup, will they adjust the price when I get there? I won't be able to get there for 3 days.
In theory you could do a return and rebuy at the current store price which would hopefully stay $75. I've had co-workers do this on other cheaper items so I would assume it would likely work. Worst case scenario they won't resale at the cheaper price and you could just return it.

Tempest is making it interesting, that was a great game.
Except the "spinner" in this makes it basically unplayable. You have to drop another $75+ for the upgraded spinner. Cabs are very small, basically good for kids.

You could always try searching some of the other cabinets. It's very YMMV but worth a look.

I see $150 around me, nothing else. These should be $75 anyways.

When these first came out I was all over the Asteroids machine because of Asteroids and Tempest. Played with it at the store and the spinner is just unusable - it's basically a click wheel.

The upgraded spinner works great but looks like a mod - ruins the whole look IMO.

I got centipede and it works pretty well - especially with the riser. Trackball has to break in but otherwise it's fine.

These are simply no match for the fancy custom MAME cabinets that go for $700-$2000, but then again, why would you expect that?

Thanks for the links!

However , around here they are still $299.

My daughter loved Street Fighter but not at $299!

yes, local store has the asteroids for $75, but I wouldn't get it. Would get pacman if they had it that low.

Unplayable is being nice. I played with the display at costco for about 30 seconds and left with a hand cramp.

these are total garbage. they look slick, but they're poorly, cheaply made, and let's not even talk about that you have to kneel down to play it unless you buy the overpriced 'stand' they intentionally made as an addon instead of making them arcade height.

controls are cheap and flimsy, boards inside are junk too. they had one set up in my local walmart and it's just not good quality for the price they charge.

that being said, if you can find one for $75 you can probably mod it with some official hardware and make it taller for very little money.

Really only good if you have the space in your mancave and have lots of friends to party with.
