Arcade1Up Final Fight $100 in store @ WalMart - YMMV

+2 Deal Score
4,013 Views
I was able to purchase the Final Fight Arcade1Up machine for $100 using the Walmart app and in-store pickup. Might be worth checking out if you've been looking for one. I also saw a few in-store (Rampage) that aren't online or on brickseek at another store. They were asking $150 for that one.

All the cabs have been on sale at Walmart for around that price for awhile.

The best cab is the SF2 one, so you can rasp pi the machine to emulate games.

Just an FYI for anyone buying this.

I disagree. The TMNT cab has a bigger control panel. If you put your Pi inside that instead of in the cabinet, then you can play on the cabinet OR hook up to any TV. Then of course buy a button kit and a 30mm hole saw.

Most people on here were trying to get SF2 cabs when this first came out. Most other boards too were looking for SF2. It was mostly to not having to wire/drill 12 additional buttons. In addition, I think the TMNT is great if you have 4 people who constantly come over and wanna play on the machine, otherwise, I think 2 is fine. In my experience, it's hard to get 4 people to play for extended periods of time for a game like say Gauntlet.

Either way, both of those cabs are better than this cab. Paying $100 bucks for FF in a cabinet is sort of a rip off. By that logic too, you could just spend the money for Pi + wood and save yourself a ton.

I ended up with a TMNT cab finally, but really wanted an SF2 cab. I still haven't drilled any holes or done anything with it.

A better choice is probably The Marvel Superheroes, which has the same layout with SF2, but also...
dual speakers, cabinet protection, better monitor, buttons and joystick feel a little more substantial.

I wish I knew a place locally that would cut an arcade 1up sized frame cheap, that is why I would want this deal. I would buy a new control panel and wrap to install on it.

I thought this one wasn't at Walmart, though? Certain cabs are from certain stores. I thought marvel was from target, in which case if that's true marvel would be the better cab cause it has the buttons, players, and price. If it's only at target, then nm rip.

As far as cutting cabs, I know people who have just done it as a fun DIY. Although, I think this depends on the games you play too. A lot of the fighting genre scene goes, people used to make their own joysticks so making cabs isn't too far off.

Yeah, a pile of wood won't cut it. See what I did there?

You can't build a cab for less than $100 when you factor everything in. Trim, hardware, monitor, speakers, controls, buttons, etc...

Depends TBH. If you are looking to convert this, the DIY cost is still probably less (just no artwork), probably even less if you factor in the riser. The cabs are a weird height, so if you game while standing in arcades, you will most likely want a riser/need one. Then add in the cost of rasp pi, amp, SD, LCD controller, + better buttons/joystick. You could prob make a cab for around 200 quite easily, if you did some bargain shopping and had the tools (although, I would assume you would have the tools if you had a 30MM drill to cut through wood through the 1up cab).
