Polycade Retro Arcade

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Tech

While we’re thoroughly enjoying new titles like Black Ops 3 and Battlefront, there’s a lot to be said about the classic video games we all grew up on. The folks at Polycade feel the same way, which is why they have built the retro arcade of the future.

The classic arcade is great, but it’s not practical for home use. For starters, it takes up a ton of room, and typically they only let you play one game. Not to mention the fact that they require a ton of maintenance to remain operational over the long term. Polycade is a slim, modern arcade cabinet that lets you play all of your favorite classic titles. Created by the son of Nolan Bushnell (founder of Atari), this modern day arcade ships with over 90 games installed, and is capable of playing thousands more. It’s a third of the size of your standard arcade, and features two 8-directional joysticks for multi-player alongside a single 4-directional joystick for the classic titles. It will even be offered in a handful of finishes when it begins to hits the retail scene in March of next year. [Purchase]
