Cool Arcade Game Cabinet for Sale

New postby Bud » Tue Aug 19, 2008 9:34 am

A friend of mine at work built this nice looking old-school arcade game cabinet.

It uses a PC to emulate the old game systems by running a MAME program that actually runs the old arcade game ROM programs. The games look exactly like the old arcade games because they are the actual SW from the old games. (Those old processors are easy for a PC to emulate.)

If anybody's interested in making an offer on it, let me know.
