The cabinets are just too narrow and small for more than 1 person. I would be willing to pay more for a larger monitor and wider (taller) cabinet just for Gauntlet. No way 3 regular sized people can play.

Quoted from JodyG:

Blake, reread Vid's post. Just because someone is into pins does not mean they have the same drive and unfettered love for arcade cabs. A lot of people don't want to deal with the 300lb cabinets, hard to find monitors, etc. A lot of people may enjoy an arcade game on occasion, but are not fixated on them and having the real deal like a true enthusiast. I really don't understand how your point of view can be so narrow as to think that just because someone is into pinball, that they surely must have same undying love for original arcade cabs. The world is NOT black and white. You really aren't doing arcade folks any favors with your condescending attitude. I honestly think arcade heads are upset about these 1up cabs because they feel they are going to bring new exposure to their hobby, and drive prices of the originals up ...just like has happened to pinball.

For some people, the world is binary and there is only right or wrong. People pay more for less all the time and it's not because theyre uninformed or stupid. Some people just want to open a box, put it together in an hour, and play.

And when the downside is $299, people just dont give a sh*t if it's not optimal or efficient. No one will be "haunted" by $299 despite his hyperbole.

Quoted from jawjaw:

I don't remember cartridges being that expensive. I remember buying some myself as a kid. I do remember the Atari 2600 console being expensive. My brother and I wanted one but knew it was probably too expensive for my parents. When we got one for Christmas we were blown away. Those were the days. The games kind of sucked but it was still so exciting to have video games at home. Nothing much to get excited about when it comes to games these days. It's all pretty much the same and all been done. One console replaces another and games are pretty much the same across every platform.

New releases were about that price. Most were between $34-$49 except for the cheaper Activision games. One of my favorites was $10 Barnstormer.

Most people can earn $299 in the same amount of time arguing whether this is worth $299.

Arcade1up has issued a PSA:
Free Plexiglass control panels for all
Rampage level 31 fix
They will have all the phone lines manned on Oct 16th

This guy is horrible at reading the teleprompter. Youre head of marketing, just say what comes naturally instead of the canned speech.
