I think o1s1n has convinced me to go for the Mortal Kombat one as I could always make or order a street fighter CP afterwards if I really wanted 6 buttons per player.

Surely companies will be making control panels and mods for these when they take off?

The only place I could get away with one of these without the parents having a heart attic is in my converted attic, so large CRT cabs are out of the question.

These would be perfect for my needs. Still need to see what the internals consist of and if the buttons and joysticks need replacing.

Couldn’t find any footage of them at the New York fair but found something else that’s cool:

They look ok those machines. But my worry is the size, 4 feet tall and a 17" screen!
Is it to small to properly enjoy(that's what she said etc etc)?

And of course we dont know whats actually running them, which i dont care about as long as we can do some hacky hacks on them ourselves.

17" is a bit of a deal breaker for me, it's bloody tiny. I'd a 19" in my bartop, & even that barely sufficed. You can't really change out the screen as the bezel is made to fit. Unless someone starts producing replacement bezels, that can accommodate larger screens, I think I'll have to pass. That said, I think they're a fantastic looking product (going from the images), and will look great in any games room.

I wouldn't mind the size at all myself, regularly play on a 14 inch CRT. Once you're sitting in front of it it's grand.

Main gripe would be just the fact that it's an LCD. Be great if you could somehow get some nice CRT emulation going on it.

This is 17" in 4:3 rather than 16:9 so it won't seem as tiny

Inviere is the man to talk to about CRT emulation!

Actually if you're reading man, id love to know which filters/overlays youre using in Retroarch for CRT emulation.

I was able to download some directly but i found extra ones on pastebin that wouldnt load for some reason, and they looked awesome from screenshots.

Will take a look later on & see what I have set up. Actually, there's a new Retroarch out (1.7.1 I think) that has a new shader in it that I see good comments on (its called Meta CRT, I haven't used it yet myself).

Retro Games Party in the UK are making replicas of dedicated cabinets now.
You can get a custom one with your own joysticks, or changed to Jamma etc etc
Sounds like a good idea, might be pricey though.

All I’m seeing is original arcade machines for hire and parts for sale in their estore? You sure it’s the same crowd?

Apparently the games will be run through a custom emulator.
