Input Mag: Forget the PS5, we want iiRcade’s $600 Bartop indie arcade cabinet
by Scott Ledingham on Mar 31, 2021
Arcade cabinets, once a luxury reserved for the hallowed halls of retro arcades, are now living room fixtures alongside next-gen consoles. Some of these home systems, like iiRcade’s Bartop cabinet, actually take up just about the same amount of space as the behemoth PlayStation 5.
iiRcade is a small, indie operation that started in 2018 when, as the company explains on its website, a handful of people got together and decided to “make a dent in the universe of gaming.” Since then, the company’s put together an impressive lineup of arcade products, with a focus on modernizing the at-home arcade experience.
