Yeah let's do a pong table top....  All we'll need are two pots, two knobs, a handful of buttons and a tiny lcd.   Budget price?  Yep only $200 frikkin dollars!!!

Dude I'm not paying over $20 for pong in any form unless it's an original machine.  Again they've gotten greedy and inflated the price.   This should be $100 max.

I donít think I could build one of these for less than $100. Maybe I could, but it would be close. Iím not sure the value is all that bad, but I have no desire for a machine with this form factor and game selection?

I definitely want to get this, the price is fine.
You're getting several games. And I will be replacing the spinners.

The wood grain looks unique, and same with the form factor.

Also, the pong pub table is pretty cool, but I really don't need 4 players, 2 is enough.

will report back someday when i get one.

they have a lower priced machine, but its a smaller handheld version for around $100-$150
