    I have always wondered where you can get stand up game consoles like in the arcades for home. Where can they be purchased or where is the best place to look for them? There is a couple of units that I have been thinking about purchasing, specifically a street fighter 2 machines with split controllers(where they are not directly side by side but slightly turned out).

    Your best bet is look in your local yellow pages. Look up arcade or even games. Along with the local Arcades, there will be listings for arcade game repair. Most of these places stock older games that they sell. If not, ask them who sells them in your area. They will know.
    I had to have a Centipede serviced a few years back and our servicer (GreenGames) in Memphis also sold them.
    You can look at ebay, but shipping something such as that by currier runs into the hundreds.

    Why not just get a 6 Button JAMMA cab. and then have a Capcom CPS2 board installed in it, that away you could not only play Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, but you could also play stuff like Aliens Vs. Predator, Darkstalkers series, Marvel vs. Capcom, Street Fighter Alpha, etc..

    Thanks C.Ryan I will check into the yellow pages and on Ebay to see what is available. Kelley (or others) how do you go about making a gaming unit for yourself? I know that I could build the box and get the TV but where do you get the rest of the parts like the CPU, controllers, and especially the game cartridges? Any help would be great as I can see loading multiple game onto the system for added enjoyment.
