It's fun, but it only comes with <4 games... it would be nice if you can replace the games on these but then I guess the controls are different too. The ones I saw had PacMan/Ms PacMan, another one with Street Fighter 1&2.
Which one has Ms. Pacman?

I'd be in for the Galaga/Galaxian if it was here and the upcoming Final Fight/Ghosts N'Goblins/1944/Strider unit.

None of them have Ms. Pacman. Pacman comes with Pacman Plus

Sorry, not Ms Pacman, it's Pacman+

Problem with the $399 price is mainly the number of games included. Say if they have 50 games in 1 cabinet for $399 (even at $499), it will sell a lot better. Most people don't have the space or money to buy multiple cabinets.

Hey how come Home Depot and Best Buy USA gets this nice bundle:
Your text to link here...
The Canadian distributor decided on only 5 cab varieties and Walmart only.

As usual we don't get the best cabs.

Because the population of USA is 10X that of Canada and shipping and tariffs etc do not make Canada lucrative to sell.

There's no way you'll ever get a 50 game unit for those prices (unless you build or mod a unit yourself) look at the prices of units with that many games and they're double, triple that price.

Look... I’ll be the first to admit this entire site is dedicated to finding deals however here goes... Have any of you paid $2000+ for a genuine arcade cabinet? These machines have at least two games, come in a super fun format (arcade) and are sized to actually fit in most peoples homes and lives. Quite honestly if you don’t think it’s worth $349 or $399 you should spend your money on something else. I have three of these cabinets and I absolutely love them. They’re worth every penny of the $399 and I’d probably pay more if I had to.

For me it’s not worth the time hunting around for a few bucks here and there. At the end of the day - if you’ve ever wanted an arcade at home - this is as close as you’ll get without paying a small fortune - even at $399!!!

Happy gaming!!

if these do go to $199 for boxing day/week - do you think they will be restocked in store or will it just be online where the bulk of their inventory is ?

i see the stock checker shows that the James Street store now has more Street Fighter cabs when i know they were out on the weekend

I doubt they will restock the stores already some stores here and in the US have started taking them off the floor and removing all displays (in the US)

So who owns the Centipede cab? Is it any good control-wise, any issues? If this goes on sale for Boxing Day I might bite simply because it's trackball controls
c'mon get happy! :cheesygri

I like mine a lot and love the trackball. Some people have complained about theirs though.

Thanks. I think this cab is neat, except for the fact that it's Centipede and Millipede, almost the same game. I wish it had another trackball game, like Golden Tee perhaps.
