[The Brick] Arcade1Up Big Buck World Arcade Cabinet with Riser $749

I've never seen a machine like this sold in a regular store such as the brick and whenever I've come home from an arcade like the rec room or game time and research them they're always like $2-3k. Not sure if this is a good deal but it appears to collect all the big buck hunt titles in one and is the right size. Its my first post so if this isn't a good deal, please share the links to better priced trademarked big buck hunt machines

Hell how about the new pinball machines? : O
I guess arcade1up are really making good money from these to be releasing even more. I’m sure the profit margin per unit is very good. But who knew there was a sufficient market for $400 home arcade cabs to be profitable. Damn that outrun looks good

Yeah! There's lots of different ones on there! Buck hunt just spoke to me different I guess. If the post gets more activity I'll edit it with titles and links to all of these

Oh this is Arcade1Up cab that uses the Sinden Lightgun technology. Awhile back they announced a deal but I never followed up on that news.

For those that don't know the Sinden Lightgun is a new type of USB light gun that was Kickstarted awhile back and the first units started shipping around beginning of fall. The Sinden Lightgun software draws a border around the edge of the screen and uses that as its reference, which solves some problems with the other light guns that have been around. It's causing a lot of buzz in the retro/emulation community and is re-vitalizing gun games there.

I somewhat agree, the majority of issues have to do with build quality and lack of quality control.
I have a centipede cabinet and the marquee is upside down (not a sticker) they won’t fix as it “does not affect gameplay”. It does however affect the look, which in all honesty is the only thing these machines have going for them.
Based on the build, and how much you’ll actually play them I would never pay more than $300 for one and that is even high.

Buy a quality xarcade stick and a pi, flash retropie or some other emulators. Play a while. If it lasts a few days, go bigger, else, you just saved space and some cash and you can reuse the pi for other projects, media player, computer for kids, etc.

I’m glad I did :)

But that is a simulated pinball machine... it's just a big screen that replicates what a pinball machine would look like, but there are no physical balls, ramps, bumpers.... unfortunately seems like a fake experience to me

Interesting! I was so focused on it being pinball I did not notice that. Honestly though that difference makes it interesting in a different way and not necessarily a bad way.

Hardly any complaints and many were resolved. Seriously 29 complaints is a drop in the bucket. Heck this sounds like a console launch that is going on right now where the media focuses on the few that are having problems. No way this here would deter me from buying this product.

I have a whole basement full of these - they are great.

Big Buck is tempting but more gun games coming.

Highly recommend the Star Wars and the Pac Man cabinets. Pinball should be good when it comes,

It is about the cabinet, the setup (controls) and artwork when looking at buying this. All that you talked about will not fill that void or whatever for me.

Just watch the tv show "The Liquidator" and see how many of us old farts get a kick out of those old pinball machines, and how much they are willing to pay.

It's a throwback to the days of the countless arcades up and down Yonge & Dundas.

#1 Never buy something like this from The Brick
#2 Wait for their next game that uses guns
#3 Never EVER mention RFD to the general public

Thank you (nobody in particular).

Wow, that is garbage. Thanks for explaining it. I thought it was a real pinball machine.

Weren't these things like 199$ a couple of years ago? 759$....OK there.
The only Arcade1up game I will ever consider is Donkey Kong and that will never happen.

Cheers, KH
