I can't wait to hear what you guys say after you play one.

Quoted from BoJo:

Someone posted a pic on facebook. Thing is so tiny. I imagine most will be adding the riser.

That's ridiculous.

Quoted from jawjaw:

Got mine today and put it together. Kids love it. Like a real arcade, cab was already scratched and dinged up. Kinda sucks being new but important stuff looks good and works. It's not as small as I thought it would be. Boys and I could all play together just fine. Riser would put it at a decent height. Might get that later. Just played it a little. Looks like you can only play two players in Gauntlet. Not sure why you can't do three players like in Rampage. Overall real happy with it. Looks like a real arcade and works great. Not as good as the real thing but pretty cool for what it is.

I would be interested whether or not they are still playing with the machine 90 days from now.

In that photo, it appears to be very awkward and uncomfortable to play.

Quoted from xsvtoys:

I've been keeping up with this thread, and I have to say one of the things that impresses me is what appears to be consistent solid customer support as far as fixing issues, updating the product, etc. This of course is good basic business practice, but so many companies fail in this area. Hopefully they can keep that going and have success selling these.

This past Saturday night there were 10 of the PacMan cabinets in the return bin behind the customer service counter at the local Walmart. I'm guessing that most folks who encounter a problem simply return the machine as opposed to some of the more mechanically inclined folks on Pinside.

Ran out to Walmart this evening to pick up a Switch for my nephew.

They have 6 pallets each of Galaga and Pacman with each pallet stacked around 5' high. There certainly is no shortage of these toys.

Quoted from Fizz:

The most important, and true, words in this entire thread!
As soon as my wife saw these she said, "Oh, we can get one of those!"

Different strokes.....

When my wife first saw the Galaga/Galaxian cabinet, she turned to me and asked quite seriously, "Are they kidding with this thing?" They look and feel like toys and seem completely out of place when sitting next to a commercial piece of gaming equipment.

However, I hope they are successful and sell a million of them.

Quoted from vid1900:

So those managers lowered the price to $148 for you?
What zip code?

Which region of the country is moving the most product?

Quoted from Luckydogg420:

I still say that because these are made by the same people as hatchamals, that they will be around for a while. Next year they’ll be back, better then before.
The first year that hatchamals came out there were many news reports of them not hatching. These are $50-$100 toys that contain basically a stuffed animal and they still sell. I’ve never bought one (I don’t see the value) but my daughter wants one badly.
Of course they will have a big booth at CES, these guys have a lot invested, and they will be around for a while.

They need to improve the quality which is going to cost them money.

The Arcade1Up return pile at my local Walmart continues to grow.

After a little bit of soldering, she's working 100%.

I wonder if all of the single mothers buying these things up have any soldering experience.

Went by their booth. They have games you wouldn’t think would be coming out yet....

So exciting, lol.

No Ms Pacman...

Namco still sells it.

Quoted from vid1900:

Be glad you don't play guitar, your crazy acidic skin oils would probably go all the way through the wood.

Don’t laugh, there is a kid in my daughter’s band who plays with gloves which have the tips of the fingers cut off for this very reason.

Quoted from vid1900:

No single mom (the typical household), is going to buy a used, smokey, cat piss smelling, phosphor burnt monitor, 300lb arcade game for her kids.
But a brand new, compact, bright LCD monitor game, delivered to her home by UPS for under $200, is ideal.

True.
But negative people, have to thread piss. They can't help themselves.

I’m hoping they are, at the very least, giving you a 1/4 point per unit sold.
