Create Your Own Capcom Arcade

Have you ever wanted an arcade machine, but not the funds or space to own more than one? If you have access to an old 20GB Xbox 360 or an old PlayStation 3 you could stick a small HDD into, you could create your very own Capcom Arcade Cabinet.

Arcade cabinet clean upDo you remember Game Room? Something that hasn’t really been updated for ages, unless it has and nobody has bothered to noticed, well this is a project you could do by building your own cabinet, putting in the console and hooking up a screen and arcade style controls to have a really authentic feel.
Some info and the American game details…
Downloading an individual title or pack will also give access to the Capcom Arcade Cabinet ‘platform’ which provides additional features including DIP switch functionality, a music player, and the ability to capture and share screenshots or video. When playing in standard mode, players will be able to access DIP switch-like settings to adjust their number of lives and difficulty, including a Casual Mode which tones down the difficulty level and makes it more attainable to see the end credits. Further features include 2 player online play for certain titles; a global leaderboard; a training mode with infinite lives to hone your strategy and an option to select either the Japanese or international versions of the individual titles.

In order to share their experiences with friends, PlayStation 3 users will be able to capture video of gameplay to post on YouTube, while Xbox 360 users will be able to upload screenshots to Facebook. Further additions include a sound gallery that allows players to listen to the background music of any of the games in their cabinet, and an art gallery which fills with new pieces as players progress through the games.

To be honest, if you can wait until May, you’re better off just buying the lot in one go, rather than getting each pack individually, you’ll save 1600 Microsoft Points if you’re patient enough.
