Hey! Look! SNES Arcade Cabinet

Constructing the perfect arcade machine is a pipe dream for a lot of gamers. Reddit user Echoobrain shared this goal, but wanted to make his cabinet a little bit different. Instead of refurbishing a classic machine or building a custom MAME cabinet, Echoobrain wanted the ability put cartridges directly into the dashboard rather than loading ROM files (via RipTen). The result became an incredible SNES arcade cabinet.

The Triforce of Patience had to help.

As a former owner of an arcade machine that I did not have the time to turn into what I really wanted, I am impressed by Echoobrain’s commitment and ingenuity. Check out more photos of the SNES arcade cabinet and let’s hope he figures out how to mass produce these with low shipping costs.
