Toys for the rich: Arcade machine with a 100 inch screen

This article is over 17 years old and may contain outdated information

Those arcade machines with TVs and mounted joysticks are antiquated, at least in the eyes of the Dream Arcade. Instead of having a cabinet the Dream Arcade has a projector. It comes pre loaded with Atari classics like Asteroids and Pong so you can play them on a 100” screen. Larger than life Street Fighter II and a mega sized game of Pac Man sounds awesome, but at the price of $4499 plus shipping the Dream Arcade is a more exclusive item than a PS3 bought off of eBay. Also it’s hard to shell out that kind of dough when you can buy arcade classics over the Xbox Marketplace for $5 and get a quality projector for way under $4500. On the other hand it does come with House of the Dead III and playing that on a 100” screen is a dream come true.
