Cameron Summerson / Review Geek

If you can’t ever have too many replica arcade machines, Arcade1Up has you covered. The company previously announced it would release NBA Jam, Frogger, and PAC-MAN 40th Anniversary Edition machines, and today pre-orders begin. They’re all $500 3/4th scale cabinets with 17-inch screens, custom risers, and stool, so make room if you place an order.

Naturally, the most exciting title among the bunch is NBA Jam. No, not the 16-foot tall machine seen at CES as seen in the picture above. A regular version that fits in your home. This 3/4th scale cabinet includes three games, NBA Jam, NBA Jam Tournament Edition, and NBA Hang Time, but because it has a new feature not found in other arcade machines. You can play online!

Hook your NBA Jam cabinet to the internet, and you can find other players (who also own the machine) to join in the game. NBA Jam is best when played with others, so free online play is a huge deal. The $500 cabinet features custom graphics, matching riser, and stool.

The Frogger cabinet includes the games Frogger, Time Pilot, and Time Pilot84. It’s a one-player cabinet with custom graphics, matching riser, and stool. Like the other arcades on tap, it sports a 17-inch screen with color graphics and goes for $500.

Finally, PAC-MAN 40th Anniversary Edition is a new version of the PAC-MAN cabinet that includes more games than previous offerings. You get PAC-MAN, PAC-MAN PLUS, SUPER PAC-MAN, PAC&PAL, PAC-LAND, PAC-MANIA, and GALAGA. This $500 cabinet sports a unique wooden look on the sides that evokes classic arcade units from the PAC-MAN era. You’ll get one joystick, custom graphics, matching riser, and stool.
