If you fondly remember the days when you loaded your pockets with quarters and jingled all the way to your local arcade to play Ms. Pac-Man, you may have dreamed about owning an arcade game of your very own. Well, your arcade dreams are about to come true. You can now buy vintage arcade games at Walmart for an amazing price.
Does watching Stranger Things make you long for your own days at the arcade? Now you can relive one of your favorite childhood pastimes in your own living room with your very own vintage arcade game. While these consoles can easily sell for over $1000 on eBay and Amazon, you can soon score them at an unlikely place for an unbelievable price. Walmart will soon be rolling out vintage arcade games for the low price of $299.
The game consoles manufactured by Arcade 1Up will are actually new versions of your old favorites like Galaga, Asteroids and Street Fighter. Each console is equipped with a high-res full color display, but it will still have the original 2-bit graphic art. The games use the same arcade controls, but they’re completely coin-less so the whole family can try to beat that high score without any quarters.
The consoles will be available starting Sep. 25, but you can currently pre-order them online through Walmart’s website.
