What is the best Multi-Game Arcade Machine to Buy ?

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR MULTI-GAME ARCADE TERMINAL?

Arcadream ® Blog - December 13th, 2020: Choosing between an Xbox or a Playstation is not very hard.
You can choose one or the other, you will have the same technology and access to the same games, except for one or two titles which are exclusive to one or the other.



ARCADE MACHINE OR GAME CONSOLE?

Obviously, a game console does not have the same cachet as an arcade machine which is a superb decorative element in a waiting room, an agency, an apartment, a house or a place dedicated to entertainment.

At the low price of buying a game console, you will have to add the price of the screen and you will end up with a living room full of cables (HDMI cable, power cables, controller cables).

Consider adding the price of a suitable TV cabinet. You will also need to buy the games at the prices set by Microsoft (Xbox) or Sony (Playstation) which are higher than the prices charged for Windows PCs.
And let's not forget the mandatory subscription (Playstation Plus subscription) to run the games.



HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR MULTI-GAME ARCADE TERMINAL?

Choosing your multi-game arcade machine, on the other hand, can seem much more complicated. And it's easy to make the wrong choice.

We must first distinguish between standard arcade machines and modern arcade machines.
Modern arcade cabs are the same price as the classic arcade machines but the range of games to which you will have access is much wider.

The latest driving games, the latest Street-Fighter or Mortal Kombat, the most recent online games like Fortnite or GTA 5 will not be offered to you on a classic terminal. You will only have access to vintage games.

On the other hand, the latest generation of arcadream ® multi-game arcade machines allow you, for the same price as a standard retro machine, to access all these great titles and enjoy the breathtaking cinematics (in HD) that litter the game (as in the latest Star Wars Squadrons or the recent Marvel Avengers).
And this without preventing you from playing good old titles like Outrun, Metal Slug, Double Dragon, 1945, King of Fight or Asteroids like on a retro arcade machine.



CHOOSE YOUR ARCADE TERMINAL ACCORDING TO YOUR BUDGET:

For smaller budgets, opt for a retrogaming type arcade machine.

Retro games run on computers whose technical characteristics equal or exceed the capabilities of the CPUs of the 80s.

A Pandora or Raspberry type system will therefore be more than enough to run a game like Pacman, Space Invaders or the games of the mythical 16-bit Megadrive like Sonic the Hedgehog (the super fast blue hedgehog) or Super Mario Bros (the plumber in overalls ).

These games wear the "retro" cap, they are part of the bygone era where an 8-bit console like the NES at home (Nintendo Entertainment System released in Europe in 1987) made you the boss of the neighborhood.

These are the cheapest arcade machines because the "motor" of the machine is the most important variable in the cost of manufacturing a machine. (The manufacturing cost of the terminal box does not vary or varies little).

The arcadream retrogaming terminal is at 1400 euros which makes it one of the cheapest on the market but the prices can go up beyond 2500 euros at some suppliers, although it is difficult to justify this price for a vintage arcade machine.

CHOOSE YOUR TERMINAL BASED ON THE GAMES TO WHICH YOU WISH TO HAVE ACCESS:

This is the dilemma of PC gamers. They must choose for themselves and in advance the technical characteristics of their PC. The determination of the graphics card, RAM and microprocessor will make the difference in the gaming experience.

A game can outright refuse to launch if one of the technical characteristics of the device is not up to par. And to complicate matters, not all games have the same PC configuration requirements.

The concern for compatibility between game and device is simplified on game consoles. A PS4 console can only accept one PS4 game. A PS5 console is backward compatible with a majority of PS4 games, but not the other way around.

Regarding arcade machines, arcadream makes your life easier with two versions of central unit and two lists of compatible games.

The EASY version allows you to run 80% of the most recent games like Fortnite, Cyberpunk 2077, Valorant, Apex Legends or Mortal Kombat 11 and of course all existing retro games (thousands).

The arcadream ® EASY version terminals, in the Slim category (1 joystick / ultra thin / possibility of 2nd player on a controller) or in the XL category (2 to 4 players) are excellent choices to enjoy playing onlien games.



WHY CHOOSE THE ARCADREAM ® TERMINAL (SLIM OR XL) IN PRO EDITION?

For a handful of extra dollars, you can (and should) order your arcade machine in the PRO Edition. Its central unit is equipped with a microprocessor higher in speed than the Playstation 4 and the PS 5.

The RAM of the terminal in the PRO Edition is 32 GB, which is double the last Playstation! Its Nvidia graphics card is also making the latest generation of game consoles trendy.

So if you want to have access to all existing games and even games that will be released in the next few years, the PRO Edition is definitely a risk-free choice in terms of compatibility and gaming experience.
