I bet you many of those A1Ups were bought as well-meaning gifts. If I didnít have my own real cabs, I guarantee you my wife would have bought me one thinking it was a cool retro gift.

I actually made a point to drop heavy hints last year that I wasn't at all interested in those things to try and prevent getting one as a gift.

Nothing in life worth having comes easy.

"Everything should be made as simple as possible - but not simpler."  You're saying your 'simple' is real hard. Mine is easy, and 99% of the things I've enjoyed.

Just say so. Then you won't.

Simple and cheap are two different things, My simple is easy, but came wicked hard...And as consequence I don't enjoy that 99% of things but cherish that 1%

So I guess now the Arcade1Up sub-forum needs to be renamed to "Arcade1Up and all the crap that looks like it" and move this thread there.

Some of the more interesting software features that most other ones dont have yet:
-----------
- Cloud saves (besides normal savestates)

- Rewind feature dedicated button

This is an interesting feature, that was useful in Microsoft Gameroom for practicing.

Will be interesting to see how this is implemented.

Nah it's horrible man.  Mind you it's horrible for completely different reasons, but still horrible.  The main thing is it's so ugly you'd have to wear a bag over your head when you played.

There is precedent to renaming the 1up thread to Altgames cabinets - and moving this thread there. Eh, Saint?

Negative. No way. Totally ridiculous. The mere existence of Arcade1up caused some people here to lose their cool, and despite it being arcade related news, it got banished to it's own forum. I lol at the idea of "precedent". Midway treasures didn't get its own sub-forum, and neither did Jakks - so there's your precedent, I vehemently protest the creation of Altgames and moving everything that doesn't meet some new poorly defined criteria being defined by a few protesters.

Lol - I donít know why you still see it as banishment. Itís a dedicated support forum for people who want to mod them. No different than the Pi subforum, the Jukebox subforum, or the lightgun and driving subforums.

There are few mods that would make them any better, they are already too cheap to be viable in that light. Why just the other day  (*at W/mart) I saw 3 of them on clearence for 75.00 apiece..Still too much (Imo) unless you are gifting them to kids as a learning tool...However banishment is to harsh, The idiots buying them are virtually throwing away the real cabs they had stashed away...personally Jennifer can't stop smiling (and sometimes just Laughing for days) at how they brag up that new A1, as I cart away their old spiderweb junk...Life is good. 8)

Just to chip this in.. There's a big reason why A1U should have it's own forum and something like the AtGames cab shouldn't (at least right now). There have currently been well over 400K A1U's sold to date. By the end of the year, that number will probably exceed 700K units

That's a bigger than huge number. If the AtGames cab can sell 5% of that, it will be a success

About 3 months ago, A1U announced they hit $100M in revenue. Simple math. In rough numbers, 100,000,000 / 300 -> 300K+ units. With the new cabs being released they're certainly over 400K by now. Note that only amounts to about 45 cabs sold per US Walmart since last Oct, so Wally World is probably a bit unhappy with that "low" of sales

I'm definitely not in the habit of saving links to relatively obscure trivia from 3 months ago. A quick google search throws up garbage

I'm also making an assumption that number is from end sales. If it's A1U's own revenue, then Walmart insiders have reported they charge $150-$160 (varies per cab type) to Walmart

But like I said, that's not all that great of a sales rate for Walmart, so a lot of the stores discount them to move them quickly because they take up a lot a warehouse and shelf space. Even with the discounts, you're not looking at them moving them more than 1-2 a week per store on average

Tastemakers LLC is not a public company as far as I know. Anything they report is likely to be fiction.

Mike, I've got no problem with you believing what you want to believe. However I've was in a Walmart right after Christmas when they put an entire pallet of about 20 of them in the middle of the aisle on sale for $150. I had to go back there 2 days later. There was 1 left. They may have issues selling to any but the early adopters at full price, but these things sell well when on discount

They also won the Toy Association's Tech Toy of the Year award. You don't get that if you're not selling in pretty big numbers

You obviously have a problem with it because you keep trying to change my mind. I am sure they have sold a bunch of them. I just don't believe anything they say.

Wow, a form of passive-aggressive attack against me. I'm "wounded". You asked twice for info. I was nice enough to give you info. Then you twist it around to attack me. I really don't care what you think. You really need to get over yourself. All this stuff here is fantasy. In the end, it doesn't matter. I was called earlier today about a family member that almost ended up in the emergency room. That's reality

I wasn't sure how far their tentacles reached. Amazon is organized as an LLC in several states to maximize tax advantages. They fall under the umbrella of Amazon the C Corp and whatever other Byzantine methods they use to leverage their massive wealth. It can be difficult to figure out who owns what unless you spend more than five minutes poking around. I haven't really cared to dig into Tastemakers structure.

You know it's not just for support. It's supposed to be where all Arcade1up conversation goes, including the latest announcement of a Star Wars cabinet complete with yoke. That's big news and has big potential but no mention here because... feelings.... Also, the fact that thread kept getting bumped with non-news was annoying.

It's banishment because some guys here got such ants in their pants when not everyone snubbed them, they couldn't bare to even look at a Arcade1up thread without making off color remarks. The treatment of the folks who choose to buy these is shameful.

The mention of Arcade1up will probably cause this thread to be moved there so pansies won't have to see the "A" word.

I'm not surprised at all.  You've got to remember, we know arcade machines, most normal people don't.  They used the original artwork and since most people don't actually remember what their favorite cab looked like they see one and stupidly think it's an exact replica (only smaller) of their favorite game.  It's the same reason atgames plug and play consoles succeed to this day.... they may play like crap but superficially they look like the consoles everyone remembers.    You've also got to remember that as bad as these are, they are still leaps and bounds better than the midway plug and play cabs with their 8 inch screen put in a standard sized cabinet with garbage artwork plastered all over it.

Fair enough. I don't take well to being called an "idiot" and the nonsense talk of banishing all other commercial arcade ventures to a sub-forum deserved a reply.
