Arcade1Up specializes in recreating retro arcade gaming cabinets with classic titles such as Street Fighter, Asteroids, Missile Command, Centipede and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but scaled down in size from the originals and for a fraction of their price, too, typically between $250 and $500. With its new cabinet for '90s two-on-two basketball game NBA Jam, it's adding a modern touch: online play.
It’s weird to love a $300 video game. But that’s the funny thing about nostalgia.
The retro gaming trend gives us many ways to spend new money reliving old memories. Systems like SNES Classic, C64 Mini and the upcoming PlayStation Classic top the gift charts as consumers yearn for the good ol' days.
