So the one from Walmart did not include a riser and no light up marquee.
I will be returning it and might grab the one from QVC which includes both for an extra $50

We ordered the Terminator Arcade1up machine from Best Buy during their big sale this week. The price was 300.00 off. It brought it down to a level that was comfortable to spend.

Maybe I’ll do a review on it once we get it up and running.

@multi007 I agree I used to have a 4-player unit myself but replaced it with the Legends Ultimate.

I believe the other problem is adding games to the system isn't allowed?? Correct me if I'm wrong. But we have literally 500+ games on our Legends Ultimate system. We can easily add whatever we want to it, download and minor setup. A massive minus for the arcade 1up systems in my opinion.

I think I've read somewhere that it can be done with some extensive changes which basically means replacing the main processor with a Retro-Pi system. Which is another $100 and extensive programming and re-wiring.

10-20 games or unlimited... Easy choice for an extra $200.

@CEPubDude I think you’re right with everything you said. The advantage with the Legends Ultimate is having a USB port makes modding/adding games a breeze.

We got our Terminator 2 up and running. It is a bit wider and roughly 10 inches taller than the other Arcade1up machines. I really dig the size. It plays great. Having played if over the last 2 days, I understand why I could never get to the end. It gets off the charts difficult and would have cost a fortune to have completed the game in an arcade setting.

You can go into the game suite and change the difficulty of a level, add ammo/bombs, and jump over levels.

I saw this at Sam's club. It was an awful setup that wasn't working and I didn't give it another look. Any problems with it running?

Hey etapi65,

2 years running and still a fantastic machine. We bought ours from Sam's on sale I believe for $450. Now they are $599 at Legends. And I would pay $599 for it if I didn't have one. Yes, I'm not crazy about the control configuration, but the control set covers literally everything except for a Tron Joystick trigger, but pretty much nobody has that.

Tron still fun to play.

It is the machine no one uses in our home. Most of the games are lame or awful to play.

@Nearmint67 Defender is great would love to own one like in your pic. Years ago I bought a Gauntlet cabinet for $100 that had TMNT installed. Kids played it for years and I sold it for $200 don’t see deals like that anymore.

We just added this one. It was a pain to move down the stairs by myself. Thankfully I don’t skip leg day.

Same. JK that I bought one and walked it down stairs solo. It’s 1,000 lbs. I moved 350-400lb pinball machines down steps with a hand truck and it’s a pain.

Great game.

Edit: What I do have are three PS5s and a racing sim setup that I’m about to update with one of the the PS5s. Will do it ahead of winter.

@Davethebrave I had a feeling you were kidding especially when you said you moved it down the stairs by yourself.

Hope you post pics of your racing sim setup after the PS5 update I love seeing that kinda stuff.

I’ve noticed a LOT of price cuts in many areas lately.

My racing rig right now has a mix of old and new. Old logitech wheel/pedal/shifter that I am likely updating to direct drive, possibly Fanatec (prices seem to be dropping in peripherals so keeping eyes open).

My seat/frame is new and I’m happy with it. Have a dedicated screen (40 inch) for it but I also have a slightly busted 65 inch TV that I am going to try and repair and use that instead.

Have a butt-kicker for motion simulation.

Hooked up to my PS3 right now, with my third PS5 waiting for when I upgrade the rest. I actually want to run everything through a VR headset but I still don’t see GT7 supporting it… so biding my time for the best combo.

I don’t do much/any sim driving during the summer so it can all wait for closer to winter, with some opportunistic purchases…

@Davethebrave Yeah those price cuts are pretty good but honestly I think those should be the regular prices. I would consider getting the Tron cabinet if it hits $300.

Sounds like it might be a bit before you get your racing rig updated hope to see pics when it’s done it’s cool to see home setups like that.

@xjagnew Cool I hope if anyone considers getting one of these they shop around for the best price good deals are out there I try to post them as I find them. I feel that comics and video games go together well. In my early adult years after comic shows my friends and I would go to a local pizza shop for food and games. Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat those were the best.

That statement might date your adulthood a decade or three ago. 🍻

I do remember a "sick day" I spent donating quarters to a MK machine back in the day. Pretty sure it cured me of my sickness.

@xjagnew You are correct sir three it is I’ll be 50 this year. My son is now that age it’s hard to find places with old school games I feel bad for him those times were great.

Oh and my last video game “sick day” was when Resident Evil 4 released for the Wii I played it for about 30 hours straight.
