Review Geek: iiRcade’s $599 Bartop Arcade Cabinet Comes with a Digital Game Store
Usually with home arcade machines, usually what you buy is what you get. But iiRcade’s new $599 bartop-style arcade cabinet goes further. In addition to the 11 games it comes with, you can buy hundreds of additional games from its store. Add in Sanwa-style joysticks and buttons, and there’s plenty to like.
At $599, the iirRcade cabinet is very expensive for a bartop arcade. Similarly sized machines top out at $179 from Arcade1Up. But iiRcade sets itself apart by stepping up the quality. It’s one of the only home arcade makers packing in Sanwa joysticks in some of its units out of the box. It also boasts a larger 19-inch screen, and two sets of controls (where most bartops just have one).
