Most of the list brings back memories, but price is a bit off putting.
Lol, ~$450.00 for a retro console with 16 games.
Pass thanks. You can get a better looking system with 40,000 games on it for less.
Heh. I considered getting the Capcom logo as a tattoo a while back.
not too sure the pricing is /that/ way off. Those sanwa sticks are pretty nice as are those buttons. Not a huge fan of that case, but for me it would depend on what they have running inside that puppy. For that price you def wouldn't want any slow downs. Nice to see Capcom come out with its own retro box. AND if I known anything about Capcom, they don't do a shitty half hearted job.. well mostly.
The list of games for me doesn't excite me, but the implementation of a online store does, and if thats the case, I might even consider getting one.
The sticks/buttons purchased locally would cost at least $120 give or take.
I'll put $10 on a 1-1.5GHz ARM Cortex Cortex A7/A53.
It'd be cool if they let you just plug it in via USB to a PC as a regular controller as well. Maybe have it present a virtual CD-ROM with game ROM files on it as well, and include a FBAlpha launcher if they need to separate it out for licensing reasons
Lol yep, we've all been here before. But one can hope for something better right!
Thing has wireless right? Would be good to know if they intend to expand the library.
At least these are arcade versions. Sega should take notes, give us arcade versions of your flagship stuff!
Fingers crossed if the Megadrive Mini does well, they'll do an arcade version.
wonder whether it will be hackable. 40,000 games instead of 16 might be more compelling.
Sooner or later, everything is hackable...
I'm sure it will be. Also i'm pretty sure the "wifi leaderboards" will be full of fake scores pretty quick
Yeah, I really hope they do something to try and protect that like have replay uploads or something.
Given the popularity of arcade 1up there is a market I just know I personally am not in it.
So according to the DF video, this isn't a Capcom push. This is was licensed by Koch Media, and is their idea.
Big W are resellers for this, price is a bit steep. But beats having to import.
