Pro Play Home Arcade
#1
So, not too long ago, I found out about this thing called the Pro-Play Home Arcade, by Eclectic Products. It was this arcade cabinet for the home that you could plug your 8-bit game console into, and even has a real arcade-style two-player control panel, too, that can be hooked to the console's controller ports. However, it doesn't come with its own monitor or TV screen. It can accept TVs and monitors up to 23.5 inches wide, including all 20 inch TV sets. They were sold at stores like Toys R Us for a while back in the late 1980s. There were two variants; a white one for the NES, and a black one for the Sega Master System. The Pro-Play Home Arcade retailed for $249.99, and was also available for mail order, too.

Who knew that they'd come up with something like this?!  Big Grin

That's really cool! I would love to play river city ransom on that.

My friend was obsessed with the idea of making his own cabinets, but he never actually started building one.

Glad you think so. Smile  By far, there's only been images of the white NES version of the cabinet.
