Costco's Arcade Machine, Target OOS
Now we're talking! Check out this unit from Costco. That's 81 games, two joysticks, six buttons per player, and 19" monitor for $2300. Too bad it's still intended for the vertically challenged at only 5 feet tall. It also costs a good bit less than Target's machines.

Games of interest:
Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, Bagman, Battlezone, Berzerk, Centipede, Commando, Ghosts N' Goblins, Ghouls N' Ghosts, Hat Trick, Karate Champ, Major Havoc, Millipede, Missile Command, Mr. Do!, Mr. Do's Castle, Mr. Do's Wild Ride, Side Arms Hyper Dyne, Tempest, and Warlords
Not a bad list, eh? Some of these still aren't available in emulation collections for home systems, like Bagman and Hat Trick.

(Thanks to jmro for the link.)

Now, as for Target's machines, please check out JohnT's comment on trying out the machine. Also, when I checked yesterday there were two things of interest on the $500 machine: it's out of stock and it's marked down to $397. Check it out.

I wonder if that's a good sign or a bad sign for having these systems in stock in the future.

I just want to say that I'm in awe of anyone who can get a score of twenty-four millions in Robotron. I was happy with my personal best of 550k!
