My Arcade Data East Mini Player Retro Game System $38.70 + Delivery ($0 with Club + $45 Spend) @ Catch

150

Caught this deal on Catch for the My Arcade Data East Mini Player Retro Game System.

Another Mini arcade unit. Probably not as sought after as most but still neat to add to the collection for collectors.

Usually RRP's for $149 and down from $129 on Catch's site. So great deal.

I signed up for 30 day Catch Club sub and got free shipping as I ordered an extra for my brother.

Have at it and enjoy

      Buy a Nintendo DSi console with any SD card instead. Much better quality and about the same price second-hand.

      •  

        already got that setup haha, I'd like to get this and custom vinyl graphic it up with custom roms

      •  

        I have a DSi and an SD card. Do you know the simple way to hack it?
        cheers

        The DSi is a lot more expensive than a Bittboy or PocketGo and still can't emulate as many retro consoles, not to mention you have to do a lot of firmware/homebrew fiddling to get everything working whereas the Bittboy/PocketGo work right out of the box and come with +100 ROMs pre-loaded on the SD card.

          Wrong link for bittboy? probably explains the neg.

            @Rorschach:

            probably explains the neg.

            No it doesn't. It's people having their sensitive/cocksure bubbles burst by a contradictory opinion.

            You can find the friggin' BittBoy on the PocketGo link anyway, they're both sold on the same website. Or God forbid, by Googling.

            It's a million times better than a Nintendo DS/DSi/3DS if your primary intention is to have a simple hand-held, retro console emulator that can run all of the most popular consoles from the 8/16-bit era because it's purpose-designed for that use case, as opposed to an existing proprietary console using hacky homebrew/CFW to make it emulate software it was never designed for.

              @Gnostikos: Yeah, I only have a passing interest in this myself, though I may get a controller and try to put my old phones to some use.
              Thanks for the recommendations, these seem cheaper than a half decent controller.

            •  

              @Gnostikos: 2.4" screen on those Bitboy and PocketGO devices. Very small.

        Pretty good tech for $40.
        Watching the video, running Android…
        So tempting.
        Don't like the Data East games though.

    Data East really do just shove their games on everything, hey.

    I swear I didn't buy the Switch Johnny Turbo re-releases.

  •  

    When I log in it says that it's over $45 for free shipping with club catch?

    •  

      OP purchased 2.

      •  

        yeah but OP advises that over $40 is free shpping, it's actually over $45. title should be changed

    •  

      Apologies for that. Have updated title.

  •  

    Is this the game console using NES rom instead of arcade rom ?

    •  

      someone on Amazon reviews said it was original arcade roms

    •  

      Yeah pretty sure they are arcade rooms according to the guy enjoy did the mod video.

    I've tried this at Jaycar but couldn't handle how all games were stretched out on the screen (4:3 forced to 16:9).

        Assuming that video talks about the button combination that allows you to change the aspect ratio, the only issue I heard was that you can't change in game, only from the main menu

      •  

        Sweet!

        •  

          Have heard some versions don't allow it as well.

  •  

    Received today. I plan on installing more emulators and roms on it later tonight. The control stick is very stiff, I hope it just needs some work to loosen it up a bit.

    Ordered a OTG cable, small hub and nano wifi adapter. Hoping I can connect USB storage, and wifi so I can just access ROMs from my network.

    •  

      Same received it today it's got the revision board tried the mouse via otg and it goes into a boot loop. There might be a way into it via an app called Vysor looking into it now.

      •  

        Hmm yeah it seems they've disabled otg in the firmware. The power socket is now a full USB port (all data pins connected) but you still have to open the unit to get to the 'Enter' button on the back of the board if you want to use recovery to re-flash it. Hold volume + and - during boot to get to recovery.

        I haven't found any resources for it yet apart from this guy mucking around with it. https://atariage.com/forums/topic/255982-mini-arcade-alert/?...

    I just received mine. It only has 34 games and three dont open just goes back to game selection menu screen. They advertised 37 games but mine effectively has 31 games. Is that same with anyone else. Street Hoop is one that doesnt open for me.

    •  

      Yeah mine has 34, but Street Hoop works for me.

      Joe & Mac Returns is the only one that doesn't work on mine.

    I just found something. If I press and hold the coin button in game selection menu, I get some sort of rom select screen. Doesnt do much but the three games start working when I change it.

  •  

    I hadn't received my delivery and when I checked today Catch cancelled my order due to "the details provided in this order have not met our system's verification requirements". WTF does that mean?

    Anyway I check online, and I can't seem to find the device for sale any more. F-rs.

  •  

    Yeah received mine last week. Was everyone elses re-sealed? To me they looked like they had been opened and re-stickered. Also saw a T mark on each of the white boxes in a black texta. Neat little unit. Screen is a little weak on angle(from looking down, straight on is fine). Some decent games on there. Seems a little laggy in game to me. The Neo Geo Mini is much better build quality wise.
