    I have been looking to add a video game to the room and like the idea of multiple options in one cabinet without an overwhelming catalog.

    Pixel Bash was recently released, anybody have experience with these? I hear some complain about the joystick .

    Would you put this in your collection if you were in the market for an arcade classic?

    3.000$ for an arcade cabinet with a tiny 19'' screen is rather pricy. There are ways to do the same for a third of the price, with a real CRT screen, top notch joysticks and put more classic games in it. It doesn't take much work or skills to customize your list of games the exact way you want, so why not add a few games from the golden age on top of it.

    It’s not a classic. It’s an emulator with an LCD. Get a real arcade game with a CRT if you wanna relive your youth with a classic game.

    I'd wait for them to hit the secondhand market because no way will they retain their $3k price tag. I'd expect it to settle in the $1500 range eventually. Though it does have a built in mini-fridge which is about as cool as it gets. That's gotta be at least $100-$200 of coolness.

    Also, there is a limited edition Red Bull partnership with these. That is actually one that I would want, I'm hoping that we start seeing some secondhand later this year after the promotion ends. I will definitely bite on one of these if it is semi local in a price I'm willing to pay.

    I have wanted to get a mini-fridge in the pinball room for a long time.

    When I saw this was released I purchased one from Greg at PinballPro (https://pinballpro.net/product-category/arcade-games/). I absolutely love it

    The game list is good, but would have liked to see Dragon Saber, Blast Off and Phelios.

    Yes you can play the games on any emulator or get something cheaper, but this is a real deal nice quality cabinet. The joystick needed some adjusting and it's nice because if anything ever happens to the fridge it just slides out and you can put whatever you want inside. The machine and fridge are powered separately.

    The machine is also Jamma so you can easily add a Rasberry pi or whatever you want.

    The PCB is small, power supply is standard and everything is easy to get at and work with. The machine is also really small and great for a corner where you can't fit a pin, but can fit a mini arcade.

    I hated the Marquee and had one printed that was just pac-man that matches the machine better.

    I really like classic NAMCO games so this is perfect for my set-up and have been enjoying it.

    I played that Red Bull at Walmart, it's fun but they have altered the game, added a red bull can that gets Pacman to shoot lasers at the ghosts ! Fun but too easy !

    Yes, Namco made a special PCB that is only in these display machines. It's a special version of red-bull pac with 5 stages.

    There are not many of the red-bull variants as I think they are only used for promo. Also I was told that there was not going to be many of these made with the fridge style cab. I own #35 and I don't see them doing many more, maybe a couple hundred.

    I was excited when I saw these and quickly became underwhelmed actually playing these. As others have said. I love the cabinet but the implementation and artwork is just garbage / junk. Half a$$ art and terrible controls. You can get a cabinet with an actual CRT using an arcade SD card is a much better option. I would buy a reunion cabinet either a cabby (19") or a full size (25") and add the board.

    I agree with others...crt is only way to go for the purists. Like these! I’ve been looking for the Class of ‘81 cabaret version to go with them...
