| "Ultracade's cocktail multi-game arcade system" , posted Tue 18 Jan 14:28:|
Forgot to post this. Before Christmas, at a Costco, I managed to see a table-top/cocktail arcade system, from Ultracade, with 35 games pre-loaded. Price tag was $2000 -- out of my price range -- but it was still interesting to look at and play with.
The 35 games ranged from Mr. Do, Penguin-Kun Wars, and the original Ghosts & Goblins, up to Megaman: The Power Battle (with slightly flawed menu art) and even the original Darkstalkers. (The two-player co-op games split the screen, with each half facing the respective player.) Framerates would dip with Darkstalkers -- but otherwise, the emulation seemed fine. (I'm assuming Ultracade has done whatever's necessary to legally distribute those games with the machine.)
Anyone else seen it? Here's Ultracade's website -- the cocktail machine should be under Consumer Products > Arcade Legends once you enter the site.
