Arcade Weekends

For many video game collectors, there is no item more desirable, no monolith more awe-inspiring to a man-cave, than their own authentic arcade machine. Just in time for Mother’s Day shopping season, it’s another edition of Arcade Weekends!

All of today’s entries come from the same seller, located in Rhode Island:

1999 Hydro Thunder unit. $775 BIN, but $650 with no bids and ends soon.

Star Trek Voyager Enclosed-Cabinet Shooting Gallery $589 BIN, but no bids at $450 and ends soon.

Probably expired by the time you read this: Nintendo Super System (3 SNES games in a cabinet on timed play)

 Crazy Taxi! Sit-down unit, BIN at $671, but no bids at $574 and ends soon.

“Merit Megatouch” Countertop 6-Game Unit with Touch-Screen Pretty unique as far as arcade machines go. No bids, and small enough to ship cheap.

The House of the Dead 2-Player $695 BIN, but ends soon with no bids at $595.

Off-Road Challenge Upright $600 BIN, but (you know by now) at $495.

Street Fighter II with weird makeshift cabinet (“Streetfighter Champ II” pasted over the old logo). Cheap at $375.

  1. The Super Nintendo Cabinet is pretty badass. I did not know they made cabinets like that. When I was younger my mom never really brought me to arcades, so I do not share the same love for them as some people might. But I would still love to own one at one point. I almost bought a Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 arcade a couple years ago but I passed and now I am regretting it
