Buying Japanese Arcade Cabinets Isn't For The Weak, Feeble Or Cheap

Buying Japanese Arcade Cabinets Isn't for the Weak, Feeble or Cheap

Perhaps you have dreams of owning your own Japanese arcade game cabinet. Heck, maybe you already do. But if you are in the market for one (especially a Konami music game cabinet), just know what you are getting yourself into.

Recently, Japanese Twitter user Ronzu uploaded photos of setting up a Beatmania IIDX 21: Spada cabinet. At home.

If you've ever seen or played one of these cabinets, you'll know they are massive. And, I bet, expensive.

    This is literally just an article saying someone bought an arcade machine and some photos to show it...

    I just have a normal arcade machine...no rhythm games :(

    If i had to the money and space I would kill for a SFIII Third Strike Cabinet.

      You're in luck - as they arent dedicated cabinets

      When I was working in an arcade I picked up two copies of Third Strike off coinopexpress.com for about $175 AU each (this was more than 10 years ag) second hand with no CD drive (I think it only needs this for the music, as the game runs fun but on boot up it tells you there is no CD attached to the CPS3 board - but maybe someone can correct me)

      A JAMMA cabinet to play it will run you no more than $500-900 depending on condition and build quality! And if you get a Sega Astro City style cabinet it takes up as much room as an old 60cm CRT TV

      Do it Do it Do it!!!

    My kingdom for a GitaDora set plx! xD

      Is that the new Guitar Freaks and Drummania set up where there is 9 drumming pads and the full five buttons on the guitars?

      That set up is pretty sweet, and needs heaps of room (if only for those massive speakers!)

    I have an original Asteroids upright arcade machine. Haven't used it in years though, I really should sell it.
