An arcade machine of a different scale

Like its genuine counterparts, the authentic-looking console has an eight-way joystick and oversized button controls to recreate that nostalgic play and feel.

Hammacher Schlemmer

Hailed as the pinnacle of 1980s arcade gaming, Hammacher Schlemmer's 150 Classic Game Tabletop Arcade is a must-have for arcade junkies and the closest you can get away without carting home the real McCoy. Like its genuine counterparts, the authentic-looking console has an eight-way joystick and oversized button controls to re-create that nostalgic play and feel.

Best of all, it offers 150 vintage games, including Pac-Man, out-of-the-box, rendered on a 19-inch LCD encased in a space-saving chassis. Audio fidelity-wise, the $2,496 system is loaded with 2.1 speakers complete with dedicated subwoofer. Powered by a streamlined HP computer, it will also readily support PC-based games and playback music via a preloaded Jukebox software.

International shipping is available. However, this is estimated at close to $400 each unit. Ouch!
