+5 Deal Score

From Reddit:

Best Buy 10% off one Arcade1up product for the rest of November!

Seems to only work when the discount is $50 or more (Legacy cabs don't seem to apply unfortunately)

Works for one applicable A1up cab purchase or preorder at a time.

Code: NOV22CCSAVE10

I just got the Simpsons for $70 off!

Loved tron in the arcade, but that's a big chunk of change even after 10% discount

Better off getting the simpsons arcade from walmart @ $500 if you can track one down since it seems like stores are receiving them.

Also kohls has a limited selection of them and are offering $120 in kohls cash back plus 5% rewards on top.

Exactly. The die hard fans will buy them but majority won't at these prices.
Paying More then 299-399 for these is insane.

This one has the stool and the tin sign. After I saw what it looked like, I decided I wanted it:

Walmart does not have the stool nor tin sign.

For Tron, I'm guessing Disney made them pay a premium for the license...but you're absolutely right. This pricing is crazy.

That said, if you've tried to buy a used arcade game in the last 2-3 years, you'll notice that the prices have gone up exponentially. Tron cabs have doubled in price, at a minimum. So there is clearly demand. Also, the price to build your own with reproduction parts is also significant. You're talking close to $1000 just for the complete artwork package. Nevermind monitor/spinner/joystick and Pi.

$200 extra for a stool and a tin sign? lol


They really need some actual competition, raising the price to $700 while providing less games on each cabinet is insane.

You can get the AT Games Legends Ultimate for $500 which is a full size machine and plays all the games that Arcade 1up has to offer and then some for less in a single machine.
