Saw a Pac-Man in a Costco today, Weston and Hwy 7 in Vaughan. $350 for it, it might get cheaper as Christmas gets closer if anyone is interested in watching.
Really?

Didn't know they had them in Costco Canada....I wonder if it's the special bundled one's like they had in the US Costco.

Does it come with the custom stool, graphic riser, and lit marquee?

That's great news. Did it come with riser or lit marquee?

I just checked with my Costco contacts ;) it's the basic machine, no riser nothing.

And it looks like stores are receiving them this week.

Brutal. Was hoping for the US Costco model.

Well considering they're not even selling the newer version of Pac Man but instead the left over 2018 stock I don't think we'll see any of the newer ones

Sorry everyone, looks like I caused a panic! It looked like a basic one, like a launch model as pointed out. I didn't see them last year at Costco, last arcade machine I saw was one from the Chicago Gaming Company before 1Up was even a thing.
c'mon get happy! :cheesygri

No, it looks pretty hopeless for us here in terms of special editions or bonus boxes (or deals of any kind). Maybe some sales after Christmas as some stores have some stock (Brick, Canada Computers and Walmart).

FInd an Amerifriend or order to your closest port of entry and pick up if you want the nice stuff.

I guess we shouldn't complain too much. Europe and Australia got nothing for Christmas. At least we did get wave 3 units.

I don't think the Canadian retailers will have much of a sale on these after Xmas as they learnt from wave 1 and the only walmarts getting physical stock are ones that sold units previously without having to do deep discounts and they only stock 1-3 at a time instead of the stacks we saw previously. Not sure how many the Brick have as in store stock, Canada Computers seem to usually have 4 or so.

You are probably right.

Wishful thinking but at least this year there are multiple retailers selling these machines. Gives me a little hope. Winking Face

Is there a place in Canada or cheap place to get control decks aside from Arcade 1up official site?
