There are plenty of retro gaming fans out there in the world, and there are many who love the feel of old school arcades. Those can be tough to track down and expensive to pick up, however, but Dream Arcade may have a solution. They have a series of three new machines, Dreamcades, built off of Windows 10 that essentially work as retro emulators for thousands of old school games.
They’re built to be plug-in play and easy to use (with safe ways to install new games), meaning you can use it like any other console, or even as the hardware for building your very own arcade cabinet. They’re currently up on Kickstarter, so if you’re interested, now is the time to buy them up. Once the campaign is over, the price will go up. Check out more details below:
