    unpopular opinion alert... so the original appeal of the arcade machine was to have these things set up in a public space to allow for competition between strangers. winner stays loser pays. to take these things and put them in your home. yeah its cool if youre popular and are throwing parties all the time, have guests over, etc... but when I go to the gaming festivals and I see the SNES consoles set up there to me its kind of similar to seeing an arcade machine at home.

    the NBA Jam machine is cool of course but unless theyre setting them up in a real life arcade, I dont care. id rather have an arcade perfect port of it that I can play on my TV.

    and Im not being contrarian just for the sake of it but $250+ buys a lot of video games. the actual arcades are expensive ($200-$2000) partly because they are money makers. I cant justify spending this kind of money on an emulated version of a 25 year old game.

    there is a target audience for this but its not me. though id really be pumped if they made a machine that integrated a working coin slot because that meand we could see these machines potentially popping up at different establishments

    It's no different than hanging artwork on your wall, and the point of the post was the micro consoles.

    I don't know how well they would play but I chuckled seeing the mini console TV.

    I haven't seen the video but if it's not there, a mini Apple IIe with system, disk drives and monitor would be awesome!

    Apple doesn't really license their old stuff like that. Atari, Coleco, and Commodore IP holders would sell trademarked toilet paper if they could!

    I think its a lot different due to the price discrepancy. An original Mona Lisa is worth hundreds of millions of dollars whereas a licensed reprint is worth less than a hundred dollars. an original NBA Jam Id say is $600-$1500 and Im guessing the 1up version will retail for $300-$400. for not that much more you can get an original one for a third more than what youre paying. the equivalent is like buying a reprint of Mona Losa for a million dollars. doesnt make sense to me but for some I suppose it does. I just know that a lot of the games they are putting out can be played on compilations.

    Thumbs up

    For anyone just tuning in, micro arcade/console coverage starts around 2:10 in the video.

    And man, do they look great! If the micro TV sets receive generic input (DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI) with the consoles providing generic output, I am sold... If, however, the consoles are tethered to their TV sets with non-detachable wires, I am sad.

    So if you want right at the 7:44:30 mark they start showing off the LCD table top, and then they get to the micro Atari 2600. You can see these things are really small, the joystick is like 1/3 actual size. He also mentions they're working with Intellivision.

    Me wants the table tops they show at the end....

    And the mini consoles-I'm hoping for decent play on the controllers and a headphone jack.

    Finally, consoles small enough for my possessed dolls to play with. For too long manufacturers have focused on designing consoles to be comfortably playable by humans.
