BEG Retro Arcade Machines
Enterainment company Big Electronic Games said today that it has begun shipping two new stand-up arcade machines aimed at recreating the original experience of playing classic titles. The Konami Classics edition is a multi-game cabinet that lets users choose between 12 famous titles from the Japanese developer, including "Castlevania," "Contra," and "Frogger." The more focused Golden Tee 3D Clubhouse Edition system includes only the classic golf game but also recreates the original controls, including the trackball used to aim and power shots. Both cabinets require no setup beyond assembly and are available both online and in stores for under $500.
