dude, this is what the couch-defiling, crazy-ass scientologist that is tom cruise should have been so damned excited about! interestingly enough, it’s priced at something only the famous could afford [$2,495.95]. we peasants have to buy earthly stuff like food and clothing. anyway, as the name suggests, it is a classic game tabletop arcade. it’s got 150 classic titles built-in to something that fits on your kitchen counter. it weighs 65 lbs., so maybe do this with a friend. the description certainly tempts me:
Hundreds of vintage games from Atari, Midway, and Namco come to life on a 19″ flat-screen LCD that captures the vintage two-dimensional vector graphics and picture aspect ratio of Pac-Man, Centipede, Tempest, Gauntlet, and more. The unit has an adjustable joystick that moves in four or eight directions, a 3″ trackball, and 11 large buttons, ensuring authentic arcade-style play and feel. It operates using an HP Slimline PC, allowing you to play any PC-based game on the arcade console itself; you can transfer and play digital music files (Windows XP supported) using the integrated jukebox software.
doesn’t say whether it can be be on a mac, but still cool. interested in buying this? head over to hammacher schlemmer and pick it up.
