I have a proper, full-sized Mortal Kombat machine in my living room, but I will be the first in line to get the Arcade1Up version the moment it gets dolleyed off the truck. That lineup of new announce

All setup. No issues other than me not plugging in the power connection inside the cabinet deep enough. I had a minor heart attack thinking the thing was dead but with some minor troubleshooting, all

Got the decals put on today. And the riser is technically backwards. The Arcade 1up emblem on the front is huge and would have been peaking out behind the MK 2 logo. I decided to just turn it around s

Oh man. I thought that was glare. That’s not good, but not terribly unauthentic either I guess. 

Well sure, eventually you would expect some to rub away.  But those things have only been in the stores for a couple of months.  And I really doubt they are being used constantly.  I think I have yet to see anyone use the demo model at my Walmart.

It’s a QA issue,  no doubt. They have made a good effort in replacing the art and providing a plexiglass cover as well. I’ve seen several videos of the plexiglass replacement and it doesn’t affect the button placement or height so no clue what he’s on about in that video in that regard. 

 

I’ve held off for now because I don’t want the spend full price but if I run across a cabinet at $150? I’d buy it in a heartbeat. Just for the modding alone.

They still look a little too short though, but still cheaper than the Arcade Legends series etc that I've seen in other stores.  You still might be better off trying to find a cheap cabinet and putting something together based on that, but once you get a cabinet, monitor, new controls etc, you'd probably be in for more than what these might be on discount. 

 

In any case, I'll stick with the MAME that I built a while back (10 years ago now).  It could probably use a PC upgrade, but otherwise it still works well for what it needs to do.

I could see the Golden Tee one being popular. That’s a game that isn’t easily replicated at home with emulators and has a following. 

 

This assumes the trackball is of a decent quality. 

It’s supposed to be easy to swap parts on these so even if it was bad you could add a good one. Probably.

I saw a few at Fry's before xmas.  The trackpad seemed fine... but the spinner on the asteroids machine was complete trash.  I don't know how they hold up over time though.

How hard are these to find and what section of Walmart are the normally located in? Is it like a Hunger Games situation?

Usually in the electronics section in Walmart, near the games area. They usually have a demo model setup. Or just wait for them to show up online and order them. They aren't terribly hard to find.
