Crystalcade: Home Arcade Gets Flashy

Sure, there are plenty of companies making arcade cabinets these days, but I’ve never seen one quite like this. The cabinet is translucent and gives you a light show while you get your game on.

CrystalCade Home Arcade

In what’s probably the least subtle cabinet design ever made, Official Game Haven’s CrystalCade arcade system is loaded up with tons of brightly- colored LEDs which cycle through various programmable patterns.

If you can get past the bright lights and ridiculous array of speakers mounted on top, the CrystalCade actually has some pretty decent specs. The cabinet is loaded up with arcade-quality joysticks, buttons and a full-size trackball, and is big enough for two gamers to play head-to-head. Under the hood is a reasonably powerful PC running emulation software, a 21-inch flat screen monitor and a THX-certified 5.1 surround sound system.

If the flashing colored lights aren’t Vegas enough for you, they also offer gold, chrome and platinum plating on the controllers. The only thing this cabinet is missing is some marble columns.
