Looks like there are plans for deluxe editions that come with more games and the riser

So then you are paying more than what full-sized versions of many of these games would cost you.

if this deluxe version was $299, I'd be on board.

If they came up passed an adults knees maybe, but as-is? Not sure what the point is.

according to the description, this one has the riser to make it level with a standard size machine's controls kind of like a cabaret multi.  I guess you could multi a real cabaret with a 60-1 for something similar, but it wouldnt be as lightweight esp with the CRT.

You could get a cabinet, a 60-in-1 and a LCD monitor for cheaper than this thing with a riser.

The riser makes it almost worthwhile but i think they charge $100 for the riser so once again.. thats a lot of scratch for what's basically a toy.

It's like those half size pool tables you can get at sears.. its cool in theory but it's not really the same thing, is it?
