It's been cheaper from other big retailers.

However- these countercades are extremely easy now to soft mod and add a ton of games- just need a usb stick.

It says on the website under specs "Vibrant 8" color LCD screen". I don't care how vibrant it is, it's 8 inches.

That was sort of my point. Seems awfully small no?

It is small at 8" - like an iPad Mini. I have the Galaga countercade and it's small. Ended up getting the Ms Pac-Man PartyCade with Galaga that has a 17" screen for $99 at Walmart. Much better screen.

Yeah Im still tempted to get the mk 12 in 1 "full size", although it still needs a stand, at $200 rn. But knowing myself, I'll play it for a day then it will just sit. Lol

There are 2 or 3 parts to the video, be sure to look at the author's playlist or additional videos.

I've found that the chipset in these V3 countercades handle up to SNES games. I ended up connecting a Pi4 to mine and replacing pretty much everything except for the LCD.

One thing to keep in mind here, however, is that this countercade is especially low on buttons. You might want to pay $20 to get a version with more if you're primarily interested in the mod.

That said, I finally bit on this one for NBA Jam. Will be interesting to see if the small screen keeps me from playing much, I play just Jam, or if I bite on the mod. Easy mod kinda helps make up for the lack of other "native" games.
