You won’t believe how affordable an Arcade1Up arcade cabinet is

GameStop

Classic coin-op fun for only $299.

Ever wish you could tear through a rip in space-time and wake up in the middle of the Pac-Man era? Grab a surprisingly affordable Arcade1Up arcade cabinet.

Before now, owning a real-life arcade cabinet was only within reach of dudes suffering mid-life crisis with too much expendable cash. Thanks to Arcade1Up, they’re now only as expensive as a modern console. 

Each of these cabinets comes with three to four games. And no, you don’t need to be a weird half-carpenter, half-programmer to put one of these together. Assembling these machines is a snap. It’s far lighter than an old-timey cabinet (meaning you can actually pick it up and move it). Plus, it won’t be weighed down with quarters, since playing these won’t cost you a dime.  

Play classic games the way they were meant to be played: with a joystick and two mash-able buttons. Or you know, a trackball. It depends on what cabinet you get. All four cabinets are coming to GameStop on September 25, and will only run you $299. And like any great online deal, these babies ship totally free.
