Let's face it, if you're a guy who remembers the good ol' days of arcades, you've probably dreamed about adding an arcade cabinet to your man cave at some point. But how do you choose which game to get? Enter the X-Arcade Arcade2TV Showcase, which has been available for a few months, but I just learned about it and it was too good not to share.
The Arcade2TV Showcase not only comes with 250+ built-in classic arcade games, but can also hook up to any HDTV. It includes two joysticks with eight buttons each for all your two-player action, as well as double pinball buttons and a 3" trackball for games like Marble Madness. If those 250+ games aren't enough to satisfy your gaming needs, it also supports open-source emulators and even allows you to connect up to ten different game consoles, allowing you to enjoy modern fighters with classic arcade controls. There's also a lockable access panel with storage space for a keyboard and gamepads.
While the $2500 USD price tag may seem a bit steep, just a single classic arcade cabinet can cost that much or more, so the value is outstanding. It also comes with a lifetime warranty, so while the Arcade2TV Showcase is built like a tank and tested for ten million uses, if you happen to give it more than it can handle, X-Arcade will fix it or send you another one free of charge (including covering the shipping charges within the USA). There's also an industrial-grade TV stand you can add for $500 USD, which supports 40-65" HDTVs.
I will certainly be adding the Arcade2TV Showcase to my man cave wishlist. Check out the images below.
