An Arcade Cabinet That Looks As Good As It Plays

Tom Goodfellow's custom arcade cabinet, christened the Replay, isn't here for the games inside it, or the things it can do. It's here because it looks terrific.

Call that vain if you must, but that's the point. It's a designer arcade cabinet. Goodfellow sums it up as:

A design of simple clean lines that has been built to the highest specification, this arcade is a unique and one of a kind example. It is intended to complement modern interiors while still having that retro cool look that will make it a show piece for any room.

Being built to the Jamma standard, those who care as much about the insides as the outside can slide in any standard arcade board so long as it's got a vertical screen, or of course take the easy route and just drop a PC in there which is running the MAME emulator.

While it looks great, my favourite part is that he's built an actual working coin slot into the thing.

    What a coincidence, you're not here because of the things you do either...

      And you're here commenting because you're friendless and alone.

        And your commenting here because you love both good journalism and think Luke is neither a plaguarist or an international joke.


            International joke?

            A group of whinging morons on Kotaku AU all of a sudden constitutes "international representation"

            Wow... overstating their important much?

    The design reminds me of the cityrail logo.

    Cropped 16:9?? Surely they could have found a 4:3 (or probably 5:4) 19" screen. Other than that, very nice.

    Well actually IMO its crap. 1 player only???? Wrong ratio LCD instead of CRT. Oh BTW Luke you can buy coin slots for a couple of bucks on ebay. I hear your mother has one.

    finally, an arcade cabinet for gay couples!

    Got it in black? The colouring doesn't look like any bootleg machine I ever played.

    The room is better than the cabinet.!!!!!! 1951 lol
