    1. arcade fans, collectors, etc. Really they are not aiming for general audiences, it is a very niche product.

  2. It would be nice if they also put out a collection on existing systems as well with all these games.
    Bringing back Aliens vs. Predator is wild.

  3. Would buy as a collectible item, it’s very nice looking! But definitely more excited about it being hacked after it’s out lol.

    1. Yeah, it's cool, but if you just want Megaman, it'd be cheaper to just get a PS2 and MMAC

    2. I hear ya! And totally agree in terms of what’s more cost efficient. It just looks so darn nice and would make a great officially licensed display piece you can bring down and have some fun with. If it wasn’t for those Sanwa parts I’m sure it would of been at a fraction of that cost... yikes! lol

  4. What, no Power Fighters? Also, that's way too expensive for a set of ROMs.

    1. It's those Sanwa parts most likely.

    2. Shouldn't even be selling this since it is running on literal FBA emulator and roms.

  5. This thing is an overpriced joke. You'd have to be crazy to actually want it.

  6. Kudos to them for not having only one version of Street Fighter II, unlike certain other company's arcade repros.

    Question: Power Battle is the CPS-1 or CPS-2 version? I'm assuming CPS-1, since that had a wider release (to my understanding).

  7. I can't say I would recommend this to even a wealthy collector.

  8. That is one fugly arcade stick, nice game list though except do we really need another release of Street Fighter II? How about one of the Alpha games instead or even Street Fighter III? The price is definitely a bit much for what is included.

  9. I hope Capcom also releases a CPSP version.

  10. *If* it comes out. There's some controversy right now that the emulator being used has been poached by Capcom against its license.

  11. To be honest I would have rather had these games on a compilation for pc, ps4, xb1, switch. I was kinda disappointed that it wasn't.
