Classic arcade cabinets are crazy expensive, due largely to the combination of no new models being made for so many years and the collector status associated with that powerful brand of nostalgia. That's one of the biggest reasons the folks athave been so successful: Classic arcade experiences, complete with the original artwork, for a fraction of the price, are a huge deal for a lot of people. So when one of these arcade cabinets goes on sale, it's a reason to get excited. And if you've been looking for an excuse to add a whole lot of Pac-Man to your home or office, the price dropping to $299 (a savings of $100) is as good as you're going to get.
This machine isn't just the classic Pac-Man arcade game, it's a 12-in-1 cabinet which includes:
- Pac Man Plus
- Super Pac Man
- Pac & Pal
- Dig Dig
- Dig Dug 2
These Arcade1Up machines are noticeably smaller than the machines in a real arcade, but the artwork and the physical buttons feel like the real thing. They arrive flat and assemble almost like Ikea furniture, and this particular deal includes an additional riser box, which makes the cabinet the same height as the machine you'd see at an arcade. It's not often you'll find deals like this, especially on a single-game cabinet.
