Dream Arcades' Dreamcade Vision 40 is basically a home entertainment platform

by: Sean Colleli -

Dream Arcades is well known as a purveyor of opulent nostalgia with their majestic home arcade systems. The latest is the Dreamcade Vision 40, pretty much the last word in retro entertainment. This monster is a 40 inch LED display mounted in a massive cabinet that can support up to four people on its gigantic control console (X-Men Arcade style) and comes loaded with 140 classic games including Ms. Pac Man, Centipede and Street Fighter. You can buy additional game packs to expand your library, and even watch movies and surf the internet like a Smart TV. The Dreamcade Vision 40 is yours for the low price of $3099, so heck why not get two?

I give all due respect to the engineering that went into this machine. That said, it truly is a toy for the rich and dedicated. Call me cheapo, but I'd rather put in the sweat to build a humble MAME cabinet. There's something special about crafting your own retro rig, and it probably would cost a lot less than 3 grand too.
