Re: New Arcade Systems for $300

My main hesitation is due to not being able to add games to it. However, based on my experience with embedded systems, they'll have to include secure boot, SE linux, signed packages and turn off JTAG support to avoid folks hacking the system. All that takes time to implement. Even then it can be don...

Re: New Arcade Systems for $300

Asteroids didn't have a spin dial in the arcade - just buttons for turn right or left. I wonder if the top parts (with the names) light up. Ahhh, good to know. The marquees up top do not light up. On their FAQ they state that to keep the price down they don't light up but will offer a kit in 2019 a...

Re: New Arcade Systems for $300

I think one of the best parts about the systems is that they tried to group games together with similar custom controls. Asteroids has the spin dial for example along with Tempest. I love that. The same goes with the Centipede and Missile Command system.

Re: New Arcade Systems for $300

Without the riser you play them sitting down. They offer a stool or you can use your own. With a riser they go up to the height that one would see on a full size arcade machine. https://static.wixstatic.com/media/b41041_f18345f0e88d4746b7c5f9a20a107b32~mv2.png/v1/fill/w_335,h_732,al_c,usm_0.66_1.00_...

Re: NES Classic best selling console

Hah! I bought one while at Target last week as well. It's still in the box. I'm looking forward to playing around with it. On my SNES Classic it pretty much has every RPG on it one could imagine wanting to play through after hacking it. Terrific little system. I'll do the same to this guy as well.
