    They come shipped in a box and fit together like a piece of Ikea furniture. Supposedly they are quite light and can be moved around easily. The cabinet is around 3/4 size at 4ft. Weight around 60 lbs. 17" monitor. Artwork, bezel, control layout all authenticate to original. Would probably be a good base for adding a secondary emulator such as a PI into with some modifications. There haven't been any internal videos for the hardware at this point, so that is a bit of an unknown.

    Walmart is shipping these out end of September, and in some cases out into October.

    Damn, DK would be the one for my game room.
    Looking forward to a MAME mod for these.

    But are they 'hackable' to make a multicade?
    That's what I am waiting to see.
    Someone post some instructions on how to multicade one of these units.

    These mod videos have been up for a while. There are some reviews done by ETA Prime as well.

    I've heard some titles are not available in Canada for licensing reasons. Which ones?
    Also, is Walmart the only place here to get them?

    Unless you sit this on a pedestal you need to be less than 3 feet tall to play this. Wouldn't it be more practical to pick up and old full sized cabinet and go retropie?

    I can build a riser in half an hour from stuff I already have sitting around. I'm not a video collector but thought adding one of these to the game room would give a little variety. Also I don't have the time or knowledge (or interest) in building a mame , or moving a full size arcade cab.

    Plus if you can find someone to sell you the retropie to just plug and play. Wow. Instant multicade.

    I am creating a micro SD card for a retropie as we speak. I found a nice image, 27 GB with 5500 games on it from all systems.
