[The Bay] Arcade 1Up Countercades $216

These just popped up in my Kijiji ads. If you were considering one for Christmas this might be the time to buy.
Cheaper than US price of $199 USD but more importantly they all appear to be in stock with free shipping.

Just an FYI that in these pics you are seeing the box, the cabinet is inside..

The screen look pretty small. I understand they're tabletop and meant to be a bit smaller, but it'd be nice if the screens were closer to the ones on their regular cabinets

Agree. Looking at the pictures, my guesstimate of the screen is like a 7" tablet. At least make it like 10" or bigger then it would have been better imho.

Description says 8” display. Larger would definitely be nicer.

I think they are referring to the HBC gift cards sold on eBay for 15% off.

I ended up buying the Centipede one because of the spinner wheel. Have been wanting to build an Arcade Cabinet for a while, but until I get around to that this should make a nice place holder. There's a pretty good mod community out there for Arcade 1UP and these counter top ones appear to have the same internal components as the 3/4' stand ups (except the screen of course).

Looks like the eBay gift card store is no longer doing a discount of HBC GCs. They were also doing discounts on Play Station and Rexall ones, but they're also done.

Ebates has 5% back as mentioned earlier (best of the cash back sites today), there's also a Shop Online & Pick Up in Store promo for HBC. The $10 in HBC Points will expire within a month so pay attention. Actually had a choice of several locations in Toronto that says they have stock.

Ended up redeeming my Air Miles for 2x $50 GC eVouchers (NOTE: there's a 2 GC limit when paying online at HBC!) to make it easier.

--- UPDATE ---
Half an hour after ordering for pickup to Yonge + Bloor they cancelled my order saying it was sold out. Went to reorder with another store pickup and now my 2x $50 GC say they have no balance. Thanks HBC.

--- Further Update ---
Spent half hour on the phone with support. Was very convoluted because I redeemed Air Miles for 2x $50 HBC Gift Cards. I said just send me the item I ordered, they said they would (as it is in stock on-line, just not in store), no email confirmation or anything. Checked the mail today and they Priority Expressed me a $100 Gift Card instead. Fine, I'm done with this.

I wish it was the regular machines on sale as these are not ideal in many common installations.

Note that they have a condition where they invalidate your eBates if you paid for your order using gift cards (even partial payment). The Bay is horrible, can't wait until they go under

I don't know what my mom and dad paid for those mini ones back in the day that were table top but I can surely say they were loads of fun. As for the price here I don't think I could stomach it as it isn't much more in some place to get the larger cabinets.

So are these the exact same size as the other Arcade 1Up models or are these even smaller in size than the other models? What about the riser? I recall that some models are sold with the risers included.

Thanks OP.

If only they had Rampage! Dig dug is a blast from my past though.
Please don't ask or beg for "thanks". Don't act like this is Facebook. If someone found your post helpful, let them decide if they want to make that click. The more you beg, the less you'll get. Cheers

These are a smaller tabletop version. Not the bigger 3/4 version that will work with the riser.

Size for scale, screen way too small imo..

Reference for mod of countercade (but honestly for the amount of effort, I'd probably just make my own from scratch)
