Dream Authentics Tabletop Arcade Game

Man, didn’t you just love the eighties? They used to have these places called “arcades”, where you could play all varieties of video games standing up that had a wide diversity of controllers ranging from track-balls, spinners, and the good old joystick with buttons.

The Dream Authentics Tabletop Arcade Game recaptures the spirit of that unfortunately bygone era, without the whole standing up part. A player can now sit down at their desk and enjoy classic games such as Pac-Man, Tempest, Centipede, Gauntlet, as well as 150 other classic titles from the big video game corporations like Atari, Midway, and Namco.

This Arcade flashback from the eighties can also act as a quarter-munching fad from the fifties: a jukebox. Unfortunately, this device doesn’t use old donut 45s, but relies completely on playing MP3s of your favorite tunes. The whole device is powered by a slimline PC with a 19 inch screen.

Man, what I wouldn’t give to have a time machine to drop this off in the eighties. Man, I could have old-school video gamers chucking the Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Intellivision, Colecovision, and the eventually the Nintendo Entertainment System out the window. I would have sold them on playing authentic arcade games sitting on your rear without a pocketful of quarters.

Too bad the Dream Authentics Tabletop Arcade Game costs about $2,495.95. Dang, that’s like 9,984 quarters. Well, if you’re willing to drop that amount of money, feel free to go to the Hammacher Schlemmer site and lay it down.
