3 Great Countertop Arcade Cabinets Are Only $100 For A Limited Time

Best Buy's current Deal of the Day features discounts on Arcade1Up cabinets, including Space Invaders and a full size Golden Tee machine.


If you miss going to the arcades to play your favorite old school games, chances are you've heard of Arcade1Up, the arcade cabinet manufacturer who keeps churning out awesome machines loaded with classic games. Just last week, Arcade1Up released the highly-anticipated NBA Jam cabinet with a riser for a cool $400. If you're looking for something a tad cheaper, Best Buy's current Deal of the Day focuses on countertop cabinets and a sweet Golden Tee cabinet for golf fans.

The Golden Tee cabinet is on sale for $285, down from $400. It comes with a riser to make it perfect for play while standing up. Fitted with a 17-inch screen and all of the inputs you fondly remember (including the trackball), the cabinet replicates the experience of the game that could often be found in both arcades and restaurants/bars. This cabinet comes with four versions of Golden Tee: Classic, '98, '99, and 2K.

Three countertop arcade machines are also featured in the today-only sale, each of which are 50% off at $100. These cabinets come with 8-inch screens and are specifically designed to be placed on a counter or desk, but they still have the look and feel of full-size cabinets.

The Dig Dug cabinet comes with both the original game and Dig Dug 2. A sharp Space Invaders cabinet features the classic arcade space shooter in both color and black and white. Meanwhile, the Centipede machine also comes with Missile Command.

In case you're still interested in the hard-to-find NBA Jam cabinet, a special edition version that comes bundled with a unique stool is still up for pre-order at Best Buy for $500 ahead of its release later this week.
