Yeah same guys, only announced it there on a podcast this week so not sure why they havent updated their website.

Not much on their Twitter either.

There is an example on their Facebook though.

Looks like the cabs have been pulled from the GameStop site.

Hopefully your preorders will be honoured lads. I should have bought one now!

Want levels growing...they do look really cool!

I wonder did a licensing issue come up and that's why they were removed from GameStop?

Gamestop seemed to have thrown them up as soon as they were announced, possibly working from the US template and, even then, from the press release.

Hopefully an updated entry will be incoming, and a solid price point.

That Tempest/Asteroids cab looks perfect, if I could get something like Gravitar on there as well it'd be even better!

Interesting, wonder if gamestop will actually follow through or if they'll cancel and re-appear at some ridiculous price point. I can see the appeal for many, I'd be out though without a CRT...

Article in Eurogamer on retro gaming.

I can't believe someone is getting away with a £160 Scanline Generator!

I still mourn the day when your AES was almost mine.

Terraonion announced a NEOSD Pro a few days ago. Uses RAM and flash, so loading games to RAM will be much quicker.
