They advertise 80's arcade but It's actually a PC based cabinet from the 2000's which was ridiculously over priced new too.


Oh god

These clowns are flogging an RPi3 with a SNES type controller in a case for €139!
https://teamretrobox.com
Not only that but they are loading them with rom sets as well!
From the video supplied you can see it's just Retropie as well, and in the FAQs they don't really want people adding extra games, presumably because then the jig is up.
When I helpfully pointed out that it was a RPi on their FB page, they deleted my comment, no surprise.

I'm waiting on Nintendo to sue them lol
I wonder what size SD is included to house all those Roms it's gotta be a 128GB, my 64 is pretty much full with just a mame romset and artwork?

It's the basic ancient Mame set as far as I can see.
So, not too big, I've got it on a fairly regular micro SD.

They appear to local lads/lassies as well, with a good line in web page design.
The same kind of chancer infests Adverts with lo-fi ads for over priced loaded RPis.
These guys pretend it's something else, careful never to mention the RPi or Retropie, and that's all it is, but price like it's big stuff.

Good luck to them.
But they could find things getting sticky when they inevitably get caught.

The custom Retrobox for €350, which they recommend for commercial use is hilarious. It's the same thing as the regular product - a raspberry pi in a case! Such chancers!!

It's actually the lesser spec as there is no controllers
