Own Your Own Arcade Cabinet—Here's How!
Seth and Timothy Peterson, two San Franciscan Bay Area Brothers, have started a new monthly subscription service for retro video games (eg., Ms. Pacman, Donkey Kong, and Tron); however, they do also offer some contemporary games like Street Fighter 2.
How They Started
The brothers set out to purchase bargain vintage cabinet games to refurbish them. They typically searched through Web sites like Craigslist and Ebay, because the cabinets are usually cheaper and in better condition there. Through their rental service All You Can Arcade, you can rent out arcade games for $75 a month, in addition to a refundable $75 deposit. The arcade cabinets are all set to "free," which means you don't have to worry about spending any of your loose change while playing!
As of now, All You Can Arcade operates throughout the California area; however, they are hoping to expand to the East Coast this year! Those who are California residents can go ahead and enter their zip code on the site to find out which games are available in their area.
