Hi guys, was looking at trying to buy of find arcade games.com but they seem a bit dodgy. Has anyone dealt with them before?
Thanks

It would appear they don’t have any stock, but will try and find you a game if you commit to buy, a load of rubbish if you ask me. Just put out the feelers on the forum if you’re after something.

Cheers guys, yeah that’s what I am doing. After Nintendo cabs really, dk,jr, Popeye! Have already contacted ken and James so hopefully will be able to find something. They are advertising a dk great condition. For £1595 but can’t get hold of them and they don’t respond to emails. Think I will give them a miss!

I was gonna say, is that site even real? The first time I saw it I thought 'gawd, not another search aggregator'.. there's a few out there that just scrape ebay, gumtree and the like for listings.

Wanted: - PCBs: Rainbow Islands, Rolling Thunder, Original Wonderboy PCB
- Parts needed: Naomi non-swivel castor / wheel, coin mech metal clip for Dino King Door

Just have patience and don't pay for overpriced games from sites like that and others (libertygames)
They'll only source them from the US and ship them over in containers..just like people are doing already.

Patience is key.

Home Leisure Direct is one to avoid as well, unless you want to pay triple the price of what it’s actually worth

ooooooh if I had the space (and the money) I'd have that...

Keep away from anything with the name 'voyager' on it, too.

There are dubious arcade suppliers on eBay - if you do a bit of homework on here, you'll soon find out who they are...

Thanks for the heads up. A steap learning curve for me. I am a big console and game collector, but want to start getting some cabs. Hopefully about 5 or 6 in total. Great to find you guys. It’s a great help. I have a basic idea off pricing on the cabs I want but other than that I am a complete noob

Yeah actually I think they have a dk jr for £3000! And that’s in the sale. Sounded a lot to me so I asked alex if they were worth more than dk and Popeye! He said there all roughly worth the same. So completely price gouging!
Can’t wait to start getting some cabs. Wouldn’t mind getting a couple of Astro city type cabs they run multi games. And they seem to be around the £600-£700 mark which seems pretty decent, and of course I would like one dedicated MAME really just for the variety.

Consider a Sega Naomi universal cab for a make cab.
Lovely 28" screens, which will display a vertical game almost the same size as a 19" monitor orientated.
They are usually already vga screens, so no messing with adaptors and 15khz software. Control panels are easy to swap around too. They are usually quite cheap as well.

Alpha 1 has some nice net city cabs for sale which are perfect for Jamma games.

Like vic says Naomi cabs are also gold cabs.

There stock never changes so they mustn’t sell much, probably more of a hobby for them
