the cabinet supports two-player gaming, housing a modern computer with a MAME emulater for running classics like metal slug, gauntlet and contra. there is also a USB so players can add their own your own favorites and create a personal game library.

alternatively the cabinet can be customized to run the original JAMMA board for playing original arcade hardware instead. originx comes with a 19″ 4:3 LCD, and to boost the authentic arcade experience, hultén adds a custom barrel distortion filter to mimic classic CRT monitors. expect to be set back  around €2,899.00 (or roughly $3,416.52).
