New ones due to be released soon ?
It's not very ALDI like to go back to back on niche products like this - they might go again in a few months if they thought it sold well enough though.
Oh i doubt aldi will do these again anytime soon.
But 1uparcade are releasing some new models that look really good. Mortal Kombat will be very popular. As will the Galaga cab.
I know a few golf fans who wouldn't mind a Golden Tee.
Saw them reduced to $250 in a semi-local aldi here in brissie.
If anyone sees a gauntlet one for 250 or less around aldi's in melbourne kindly let me know
My control panel paint has started rubbing off already.
To order the deck protector in Australia email email@example.com with a photo of your receipt, the type of cabinet you have, your name, address and mobile number.
I emailed them on a Wednesday and had the parcel by Friday, pretty happy with that.
So, do these use dedicated hardware or are they emulation like the playstation mini
Emulation. Nobody makes dedicated hardware any more. The R&D is too expensive.
Uses a somewhat custom ARM board (so you can't just bang Raspberry Pi software on there).
There are a few people developing hacks for them to add different games, but honestly, you're better replacing the internals with either a cheap PC or an RPi if you want to customise things.
Saw one today in brissie came back to this thread and saw you said melbourne
Which aldi Mathuisella ?
Stones corner, i happened to be nearby for some stuff and picking up some milk on the way home. They only had the one.
Anyone in brissie after one of these ?
4 street fighters and 1x rampage and gauntlet
Aldi at west end, near brissie cbd.
I just saw a rampage/gauntlet one at the Aldi in white box rise Wodonga too. marked down to $249.
I was tempted for a moment but i managed to get away clean
Started work on Rampage cab, added 3 blue buttons but please note if your retaining everything as stock as possible you will have to have the extra buttons in non matching spots due to limited space, Suggest to chalk outline from inside cab to know how close to the sides you can go. Got caught out on Player 3 pushing front of cab but lucky its pretty bendy. Was able to nudge off wiring for the joysticks straight to the the xinmo controllers and ground sit in tight squeeze. The buttons have each separate ground wires so will have to rewire and daisy chain to ground on xinmos. If you havent seen ETA Primes video on the Rampage cab check it out and shows you what hes done.
Also noticed this on Reddit about using the on off switch and volume control with the Pi which is pretty neat.
I've got a brissie next month, might take a track down there.
they'll probably be gone by then
Found another 8 in another aldi today haha.
people on gumtree are trying to sell these for around 400.
and others on ebay have them up for 500+ :O
aldi for 250....
