True story ppl who buy these will play it for like 20 mins and becomes a paperweight ie. Never to be played again.
Well sure. You don't get this to actually play it (much). It's a $100 trip down memory lane.

Think of it as interactive art / tech history.

It's like those $100 adult Lego sets. After you build it, it's going to sit on a shelf.

Regardless, that screen is mighty small...
Good, but I probably wouldn't do it again.

Bought controller board from geeksales.cc and connected an old RPi. RPi was too slow so connected a mini PC I had laying around (Batocera OS). Bought a custom deck from Etsy and joystick from amazon.

Worked great from that point but the screen is so terrible I ended up custom fitting an ipad2 display/controller board in to replace it (real pain in the butt).

Looks great now that there's nothing from A1UP except the "wood" cabinet itself. laugh out loud

Went down the rabbit hole of modding one of these after buying for $40 from GameStop.

The screen is 8 inches so it would be like playing on your phone. I've been debating getting the partycade which is a more reason 17 inches but I realize that I will end up using it three times then be done with it. There's a reason every retailer is selling these at clearance prices. They are not selling at the ridiculous markup ($600 for some, cmon!) in this economy. Wouldn't be shocked if this company goes out of business or starts doing permanent price drops.

Yea I think I got the 2nd gen one and its been like 50% complete from modding too for a bit. Either mess around with a RPi config to get the bad Veritcal screen working or mod in a better horizontal screen.

I've thought this too (how long will they last?) but they're really churning out the products now with extra iterations of certain ones (SF2, for instance). People must be buying. I went to an acquaintances house the other day who I wouldn't have thought would be into this and he had a small arcade set up in one of his rooms with three or four of the larger machines in there.

I have two (Asteroids and Centipede) I got on clearance that admittedly collect dust. I also have a pimoroni Picade that does likewise (screen too small).

If I had it to do over again I'd get the AtGames Legends Ultimate and call it a day. In fact that is probably what I will do and I'll Craigslist the other stuff.
