Just noticed that Sam's Club had the Legends Ultimate Arcade in stock again this morning. My order went through without any problems. I guess they have some more available for those who missed out two weeks ago.

Shipping for me (regular member) is $41. Might as well upgrade to Plus for $55; makes it free shipping and you also get $10 in cash rewards for spending $500.

I am a regular member and my shipping was $38.37 plus $41.87 tax. I guess the shipping differs by location since it is a heavier item. D'oh !

I wanted to love this but ended up returning mine. Bought when they first came out and there were too many little flaws that added up quickly, a couple of major issues as well with the LCD quality. I decided I was too picky at this price point and that I needed to spend more to get what I wanted, so I'm in the process of building my own using a GameRoomSoloutions cabinet from Micro Center. The Legends Arcade definitely has a lot going for it though.

I don't know if the quality has improved or if I just got lucky, but I didn't have any significant problems (just a bit of minor scuff marks on one side that only show up under the right lighting conditions) with the ALU cab I bought in March and arrived in April.

Two things I really like about the cab's functionality:
1) The control deck has nearly every type of controller you would need for any 2 player games, including a trackball and two spinner controls. That will cover nearly every game you might want to play, with the exception of games that require 2 trackballs.

2) The ability to easily add new games or connect another system (such as a RetroPie) to the cab. While this requires a lot more work to get the "other" system up and running, it's a great way to leverage the ALU's display, control deck and overall cab for a more customized/powerful arcade emulation system.

Thank you. Just set up an alert for this last night. I've read the posts about quality issues, but crossing my fingers.

Interesting. I bought it because I thought the price was actually a very good deal for all the components you get. (cabinet, molding, big LCD, 2 speakers, light up marquee, joystics, buttons, trackball and spinners, USB and HDMI ports on front). Maybe I'm just lazy and don't want to build one but this seems like a unit that can be customized and upgraded as well if parts don't feel right.

Does anyone know if the BYOG feature is strictly limited to the supported games here? (https://www.atgames.net/arcadenet/byog)

..or can you use it with any game on Steam and that list is just their 'tested' list?

I have several Steam games that would map well to an arcade cabinet, but I'm not sure how the BYOG interface works.

No argument from me on that, it is definitely a great price for the package. That's why I drove 8hrs round trip to pick mine up when they were basically sold out everywhere. Unfortunately, my LCD had significant clouding, and that was the last straw for me. Combine that with a few other build quality issues, I decided to not look into picking up a replacement, I just decided to build my own. That has not been without its challenges either though.

There are lots of videos on YouTube that explain the BYOG feature in more detail. From my understanding you can play any steam game that you want using a local setup and it doesn't cost any extra fees. The extra fees per hour are if you are using their servers to stream games.

You can never go wrong with a custom build if you have the money and time. The only problems that you have with that is all of your friends will want you to make them one too. Good luck !
