Oh, and prices are subjective to area, supply, demand, etc but your numbers are way off.

This A1up dickriding is just comedy.

You want to guess what I think is even more funny?  ::)

Just go buy one and get it over with already. You got a good job and can afford it now.

These versions of Golden Tee are the ones that have been available in MAME for a long time, right? They are terrible to play. It's 20 year old games that don't hold up well. I can only imagine someone is going to buy it thinking it's the Golden Tee they played at the tavern and then be surprised at how crummy it is.
anyone that sees the graphics knows what they are in for.

also, with the improved controls, that really won't be an issue as far
as playability goes.

the only thing the new ones have is maybe an extra button or two.

the gameplay is identical, so theres really no need for disappointment.

This isn't a Arcade1up thing, this is old ass Golden Tee vs new Golden Tee and the ability for average consumer to realize what they are getting. I think they think they'll be getting this: when in reality they are getting this:

I had Golden Tee available on my cabs, but it was terrible. We played Tiger Woods golf.

I like that they upgraded to a Happ Trackball, but I just think the game itself isn't all that great. It would've been cool if they threw on it Shuffleshot, Shuuz,  and\or World Class bowling

people that look at the years will know the graphics aren't going be to as good,

unless they're blind.

I played the original Golden Tee around 1989 so I personally have an affinity for the older lower quality graphics.  I have nothing really against these A1Ups cause I've never been able to touch one outside of its box I just enjoy building cabinets more than playing them.

@leapinlew: more funny, or funnier?


Golden Tee peaked forever ago.  I spend a lot of time in places that have them and nobody touches them now.

 :dunno

I guess the corners such places have them in have nothing better to go in. I love GT '97 and '99. I rarely play golf games, but those are my go-tos.

I壇 do that! He may walk away with a different opinion of the cabinet or maybe I would, but either way I知 down.

I think 19 is totally do-able. I like my full size MKII better I知 sure. But I sold that and would like to play those games again with the proper button configuration.

Perhaps that, And bolt it to a sand filled riser to make it more stable... My concerns would be the give and take of physics, The rigidity would most likely accelerate it's demise and the cab would just fall apart at the seams....But again it's just a toy for a 10 year old, so the stress would be minimal, until they outgrew it and just bought a real one with their lawnmower money.

Best Buy will be selling the Golden Tee cabinet, so its not a Gamestop exclusive,
despite them and Arcade 1UP saying that.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/arcade1up-golden-tee-arcade-cabinet-with-riser-black/6333626.p?skuId=6333626



Same price though, no reductions yet.

I tested one of these out at Walmart and I was impressed. Its pretty cool. Like a step between a toy and an actual arcade. If I had a little cousin or niece who wanted an arcade, I'd buy one as a gift. I wouldn't by one for myself with actual real life arcade games and customized Mame machines attainable.

You cannot tell me its even close to the same. If they were 1:1 size, slim, with real arcade controls and good emulation . . well, I'd still want my own custom machine and software . . but we could talk about them being viable substitutions.

Those risers are laughable. I'd need 2.

Look at this:

My back hurts just looking at that.

At least they know their customers. The beardo nu-males they got for the photo are the perfect stereotype for the people who gush over these things.

Why is his boyfriend staring at his hands and laughing, rather than looking at the screen? Why is beardo so happy by getting his ass perfected by the CPU?

For those of you who aren't a member of the Facebook group, this could be of benefit. The one thing I think the Arcade1ups have in it's favor is size (it's also one of the biggest detractors). In the first pic is an adult playing Pacman and while the cabinet is definitely shorter than a normal cabinet, this doesn't look unreasonably uncomfortable. I don't think it's too bad.

I also think some rooms are just better candidates for smaller cabinets. This could be cabarets, or poker machine conversions, but the A1ups fill out the space sufficiently. 2nd pic.

For your Veterans of BYOAC, the last pic is kind of funny. It seems some of them are going through the same growing pains. It just goes to show, it doesn't really matter what size the arcade is, someone wants to put way too big of a CP on it.

Oh, I didn't even pick up on that,  :dunno....As my last obsevations, Used parts for these junkers are finding there way into mainstream outlets, Gotta know what your looking at.  #2, All that wall bling is not a substitute for authentic, in the same space (and possibly the same money) you could have the real thing...#3, A real machine commands the room with the drop of a coin, an experience Walmart does not sell....And finally #4, I don't know what Arcade1 F/book group is, But sounds incredibly lame, Good place for them to hang I guess.

Just for the record, the "wall bling" is something arcade 1up is doing right.  Those pacman/ghost light ups are awesome and don't cost a whole lot.... haven't been able to find them in the wild yet.

As far as improvements go on the Generation 2 cabinets, the plan is to include laminate deck control protectors
with the machines, like Space Invaders, and the upcoming Final Fight.

For older machines of the first wave, they are putting a new laminate on the control panels, but the
results are mixed after a couple of weeks it seems.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Arcade1Up/comments/b7r6tv/gen_ii_units_with_laminated_deck_durability_update/




You're still better off, buying  a deck protector, if they are available through the store.
