Arcade machines, the ultimate accessory for retrogaming fans


In the age of next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch OLED, some manufacturers are betting on retrogaming. The web is full of arcade games, but nothing can match the unique sensation of a real arcade machine. These machines, ultra-popular at the end of the 20th century, have been given a second lease of life by Arcade1Up and Neo Legend.

The Neo Legend and Arcade1up arcade machines allow you to return to the 80s and 90s in an instant. Both manufacturers are committed to offering iconic video games from the late 20th century.

Compact retrogaming arcade machines

While arcade machines were first used in public spaces, gaming is now mostly experienced from the comfort of your home. That’s why Arcade1Up and Neo Legend also make compact machines. Very practical, they take up very little space and can easily be placed on a desk.

This is a real asset in the age of portable game consoles. Arcade1Up’s single-player arcade machines and Neo Legend’s multiplayer arcade machines require a minimum of space to offer fun retrogaming sessions. What’s more, these exceptional consoles are finished to the highest standards. Neo Legend works with artists to turn its arcade machines into genuine works of art.

Issu de l'univers du sport, j'ai décidé de rejoindre l'aventure Son-Vidé en 2022 afin de développer mon intérêt pour le monde de l'audio et du home-cinéma. Curieux de 7e art et de musique, je suis constamment à la recherche de nouveautés techniques pour améliorer mon expérience. Si l'ensemble de l'offre culturelle m'attire, j'affectionne particulièrement ce qui touche au spectacle vivant (théâtre d'impro, stand up ...). Mon temps libre se partage donc entre un stade, une salle de concert ou de cinéma et un théâtre, au gré de l'agenda nantais ... et de la météo ! Des expériences que j'aime avant tout partager avec mes proches afin de comparer nos points de vue.
