I’ve just seen the 8Bitdo arcade tabletop machine in my feed and isn’t it a stunning piece of retro gaming hardware!
8Bitdo are the company that have been helping to bring your existing retro consoles into the 21st century with the Bluetooth NES and SNES controllers. Allowing you to play your classic retro console games without the wires of yesteryear.
Appropriately named the 8Bitdo Desktop Arcade, this really is a fancy piece of retro kit.
As well as retro gaming, I need a taste of the modern and currently have a mild addiction to Fallout 4 (in which I also usually have an addiction to BuffJet). So when this Fallout 4 bar top arcade machine appeared in my Bethesda feed this morning, I had to share!
Bar tops are a great way to scratch your retro-gaming itch whilst appeasing the household. Small, light and therefore portable, meaning you can keep it hidden away in a cupboard. Covered with some really nice Fallout artwork this baby includes the logo and vault boy. Plus Vault-Tec colour-matching joystick and buttons… though the speakers bother me a little!
I can’t find too much info on this, but it apparently has a Raspberry Pi and XBox 360 inside. Sweet!
