TL;DR: Get a taste of nostalgia with the Polycade™ Home: Plug and Play Mounted Arcade for $3,899, a $100 savings as of Aug 1. 


The golden age of arcade video games (the late 1970s to the mid-1980s) died with the birth of home video game consoles. It’s tragic, as there’s truly no video game console that feels as authentic and wistful as playing Pac-Man or Street Fighter at the local arcade.

While there’s no guarantee genuine arcades will ever make a comeback — especially not in the age of coronavirus — there is a way you can bring that nostalgic vibe into your home. It’s called the Polycade™ and it’s designed with all the functions you’d want in an arcade machine, but with the form of a modern-day piece of art. Allow us to explain.

If the arcade machine was first designed in 2020, what do you think it would look like? That’s the idea behind the Polycade™. It’s minimal and elegant, easily mounts to any wall to save floor space, and is photogenic enough for Instagram. Plus, it’s easy to use and maintain, with plenty of choices for gaming options.

Since classic games are inimitable, it’s jam-packed with all your favorite retro classics — Pac-Man, Street Fighter, Dig Dug, Sonic The Hedgehog, and more. Plus, it gives you the ability to play the best new indies and graphics-intensive modern fighters. It comes pre-installed with Steam and emulators, so you can download and play thousands of games from existing platforms (like NES, SNES, Sega, etc.) straight out of the box.

The Polycade™ is also loaded with joysticks and buttons for the most accurate, smooth, ergonomic, and precise gameplay. And because it’s designed for modern gaming, there’s also a push-to-open drawer with two USB ports, so you can connect a keyboard, mouse, or extra storage, and a camera and microphone for HD streaming. If you didn’t take a clip of your gaming, did you even play?

Relive the golden age of arcade video gaming by bringing the Polycade™ into your home. You can get it in either black or white to match your home aesthetic and save $100 for a limited time, knocking the price down to $3,899.
